The 4th of July is upon us, along with warmer summer weather, barbecues and fireworks galore. I'm not one for any sort of statement so far as patriotic attire goes- so I tend to stick to understated pieces that still fit the red, white and blue theme. Since I don't wear red, I play up the white and the pale blues to look festive. I've rounded up a few great outfit choices that you can rock this upcoming weekend.
Seersucker is a great preppy option for the fourth and the knot makes it a little more casual and relaxed. I love it paired with white jeans or shorts!
This top is definitely one of my most frequently worn. The eyelet detail is everything! Runs TTS.
This chambray top is adorable and I love that option for anything requiring patiotism.
This top will likely be the one I'm wearing next weekend since it has the most subtle red detailing I could find.
When all else fails, go with a white top. This one is adorable and I'm obsessed with the knot!

It is almost summer and I am soaking up every single minute of the beautiful weather. We just recently made some updates to our backyard patio and I have to tell you, you will be hard pressed to find me anywhere else. I find it calming and so relaxing, and it has become my little oasis.
Since I've been spending nights outside, I've been stocking up on comfy clothes I can wear to ward off the breeze. So today's must-haves are all about versatility and comfort too.
This sweatshirt is so comfy and soft and it can be worn off or on the shoulder.
I ordered this lightweight cardigan in two colors this week and I couldn't more excited about it.
This bow sleeve sweatshirt is back in stock in all sizes and I love it with white shorts too!
These pink joggers are AMAZING for a cozy night by the firepit, and I love that you can throw them right in the wash to get the smokey smell out.
I've also been having a major moment with the handkerchief trend- read I'm obsessed. I bought and have not stopped wearing this $7 one, and now I ordered this one too! Perfect to keep warm but still look summery too.
It's Must-Have Monday and it is HOT. When I'm not wearing a dress, (did you catch last week's post?) I am grabbing for a great white top. If you ask me, there is nothing better for summer. I've rounded up my favorites of the moment for you, most of which are under $50!
This ruffle sleeve top is one I grab for when heading to a casual dinner or even for work. The sleeves are perfectly understated and it's only $35!
Probably one of my favorite knotted tanks right now- this one is soft and the length is perfect. Not too short at all!
If I had to pick a favorite top that I've worn more than any other, it's this one. I can't get over how much I love the sleeves. Watch for it again on Instagram this week.
This tank has the greatest tassels going with pretty mint and blush pink accents. I love the collar too!
If you are looking for an awesome basic white tee, this one is $18 and it's thick enough to not wear a cami underneath!

I mentioned on Instagram that this upcoming weekend I am, begrudgingly going to a barbecue. I know it likely seems strange, but as an introvert through and through, these types of events aren't always enjoyable. Small talk is draining (hashtag introvertsunite) and for someone like me, there isn't much to eat (hashtag mepaleo). Put that all together and I am already wishing I were staying home.
That said, it is a good excuse to wear a cute outfit, and I tend to opt for a cute top and some jeans. I've rounded up my bbq favorites and hope you will spend your weekend doing something you truly love.
SHOP MY PICKS
I ordered this top last night and I love the polka dots. It could be on the dressier side, but with a casualespadrille or wedge it will be bbq ready.
This top should be coming this week and I am more than obsessed with it. It screams summer and backyard holiday party.
This top is a great way to elevate a basic white tee and you can wear it with sleek skinny jeans or a baggier boyfriend style.
This and this are my two favorite peasant tops of the moment and I promise you need them both.
Add a straw tote to any of these tops and you are ready for any summer get-together!
It's Must-Have Monday and I thought I'd round up my current five picks this week in beauty, clothes and accessories.
TOP FIVE TOPS
I want this top in every color. It is so versatile and looks great dress up or down. Plus it's under $50!
My favorite peasant top from last year is back and comes in a ton of colors!
I wore this yesterday for Mother's Day festivities and it was a hit! It actually feels good to wear it too.
This peasant top is my favorite of this season and I can't get enough of how soft it is. I bought it in a few colors.
The pattern onthis button down is so pretty and the button detail and bow sleeves are as good as it gets.
TOP FIVE IN BEAUTY
I've talked about this eye cream before but after a day of indulging, this cream instantly de-puffs your eyes. This moisturizer is so effective yet it isn't heavy at all. Layers perfectly under makeup. (use code SUNSETS20 for 20% off)
The deep conditioner is so unique. It is almost light and fluffy and melts into hair. I've been using it once per week and it is one of the top products showing me the biggest change in my hair.
If you're hair needs some TLC, this shampoo is unmatched. It's super gentle, yet effective and it balances protein with moisture to create soft, healthy hair.
I usethis cream as a daily moisturizer for my ends. I put it on every single day and it has helped a ton with split ends.
TOP FIVE SHOE SWOONS
Obsessed with these espadrilles. They have been selling out like hot cakes and come in a ton of colors! Size down half a size.
These flats are packable and foldable and I have two colors.
These wedges are back-ordered but are definitely the go-to wedge of the season. I ordered the blush!
I've been obsessed with Adidas this season and this pink pair has become my go-to.
These sandals come in three colors and they will instantly elevate any outfit you have!
FIVE ACCESSORIES CATCHING MY EYE
If you're looking for the next it tote bag, it's this one. It's been selling out like crazy already!
My girl Mrs. Casual told me to get these sunnies because she liked them so much. I've been getting compliments on them ever since.
I snagged this necklace during triple points and it is the prettiest one I have.
This bag caught my eye and I can't believe it's under $100!
This embroidered clutch is the prettiest shade of pink!
