Shopping: Stars and Stripes Forever

Time for one of my favorite round-ups of the year – Fourth of July.

Red, white and blue is in heavy rotation in my closet during the summer anyways but as we inch closer to America’s birthday, I tend to gravitate to it even more. My friend Caitlin and I have been known to randomly pick up patriotic gear for each other while out shopping and of course, the other day when we hit up Dress & Dwell, we both went home with new red, white and blue gear.

When it comes to getting in the patriotic spirit for the holiday, I’m not advocating wearing all-flag everything apparel rather adding simple combos of the colors together. Like going with a red and white stripe tee paired with dark jeans and sneakers  or a boho tank (like #5) paired with white jeans. If you’re one of the lucky babes who can sport a romper without camel toe (sorry for that TMI but you know we were all thinking it), then this romper would be perfect for a bbq and firework watching.

And since I know patriotic pool days are in my future, these sweet swimsuits for little girls are the cutest. I’m planning on ordering Reese this one as soon as I wrap up this post (doesn’t hurt that it’s only $15!). Oh and don’t forget the fellas – these button downs (one is a killer Target find) will get lots of wear long past the fourth but will look great with rolled sleeves and shorts for a backyard party.

Here’s the thing though… you’re going to want to order now before all the good gear (and sizes) are gone.

Shopping: Summer Ready Cover-Ups

The last day of school is coming up, Memorial Day plans are being made and it’s getting hotter and more humid everyday – summer is quickly approaching.

Summer is my happy season and this one will be especially nice since I get to spend most of it on maternity leave. But since my summer body will be less than stellar, I’ve been scouring the internets for cute cover-ups to lounge around in poolside. Even if you’ve got an A+ rocking beach bod, a cute cover-up is a summer essential. A total necessity for runs to the bar, outdoor lunches and for that emergency stop to pump gas (and get a slurpee) on the way home from the pool (just me, okay that’s cool).

I usually end up buying two at the start of the season and rotate them non-stop but there are so many affordable options out right now that I may end up adding a couple extra this year. Here’s a few of my favorites plus some more for the little ladies in your life (had to snag one for Reese, so why not share the love with you all).

If you’re petite, I also recommend checking out the girls section at Target and Old Navy. They have SO many that are crazy cute and super cheap. Petite gals can easily wear the bigger sizes and when it comes to a cover-up, if it’s a little short it’s no big deal.
