Celebrate the Little Things

The Fourth of July is almost here and it is time to celebrate the little things! Like cute striped dresses from my most recent Trunk Club box or the fact that I think the fog of illness I've been dealing with most of this month has finally lifted.  That right there, is REALLY a reason to celebrate. This Halogen dress was so spot on that I squealed the minute I opened the giant Trunk Club box and laid eyes on it. Not going to lie but this month has been hell.  I'm looking trimmer than before but that is what extreme pain and meds that take away your appetite will do.  I would not wish the "lyme disease/pain diet" on anyone.  This illness, which we think we caught early enough, if all caps FUNKY.  It makes you depressed and irritable because the pain is so strong and the … [Read more...]

Just Add Fireworks

When it comes to make-up over the holidays I always tend to be a bit understated. My toes are painted a glossy OPI red this year and I'm sure my nails will be in a white hue. Navy fingertips are too hard to keep fresh for a few days when you are busy having fun. I might throw in a navy eyeliner though or a red gloss to play up the day even more. Then I'm done and all we need to do is just add fireworks. Pick one or all of these super cute shades to add a little sparkle to your look.   All Made Up for the Fourth by victoriamason featuring a red lipstick SHOP THE LOOK Lipstick Queen in Medieval/Essence EU Cosmetics Nauti Girl Palette/Essence EU Cosmetics Nauti Girl Eyeliner/Lauren B.

All About the Stripes

This week it is all about the Fourth.  Don't hate me.  I'm packing up kids for camp, getting us ready for the holiday and I cannot stop wearing different versions of the stars and stripes.  OK, mostly stripes. #cantstopwontstop. TD, aka my clone, decided to join in with her matching sunglasses and new dress. Can we talk about how she wears those sunnies and suddenly looks grown up.  It kills me. Then The Comedian joined in the with her version. Followed by Diesel photo bombing me.  This dog.  He's my love.  I haven't talked about it but we rescued all 112 bloated pounds of him two months ago and he has had quite a turn around.  I waited years for this guy and he's quickly become my running buddy and stress reliever.  Blessed for real guys, every time I look into his sweet … [Read more...]

Dress for the Fourth of July

When my MIL emailed me asking if I wouldn't mind dressing the girls in red, white and blue this Fourth of July, I had to laugh out loud and respond, "Already on it." I do it every year with them for as long as they will let me and I do it for myself.  I love putting together some of my favorite colors and seeing what my closet reveals. Red Eyelet Shorts (old-similar, similar)/J Crew Factory Chambray Shirt/Mossimo Gold Sandals (old-similar)/Gold Bangles/Rope Necklace (old-similar, similar)/Nankeen Purse (old-similar) Additionally, you can never go wrong with any of these tried and true dresses and swimsuits.  Just put them on and add an accessory or two, grab a set of sparklers and get to celebrating Independence Day. … [Read more...]

4th of July Style Inspiration

Looking for something beyond the red, white and blue that is so prevalent this week?   Sandy, from Fashnboucou, and my guest blogger today offers up a few looks that will really set you apart this holiday. You can dress in patriotic spirit without being so literal. Ditch the cliché red, white and blue, and add some color and prints to your look this 4th of July. Mix the trio of hues with flirty prints and textures, like florals and lace. Make red, white, and blue work together by throwing in a fourth hue and adding a vintage-y mix of prints. I paired a colorful and flirty midi skirt by Saloni with a feminine daisy lace cami. Mixing prints as I did with the skirt and GoJane quilted clutch keep your look unfussy and cool. The neutral accessories won't distract from the bold color … [Read more...]
