With Fourth of July quickly approaching, it is time to start thinking about what to pack for the festive weekend. Being the good patriots that we are, we love an excuse to work a little red, white and blue into our holiday wardrobes. There are so many fun options right now and we are especially loving the ethnic embroidery that is popping up on everything from tunics to tote bags. It is also an opportune time to add a little Americana with your accessories, including footwear - how adorable are these red pom pom espadrilles? If all-white is more your thing, at the very least, add a pop of color with a classic red nail or lip. Bonus - everyone is having summer sales right now so it is the perfect time to stock up on those end-of-summer essentials!
We hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend! We spent the long weekend in Vail, Colorado. It's one of my favorite places to spend the holiday because my family celebrated there when we were growing up. Now that I have a family of my own, it is so much fun sharing the same experiences with my husband and son (parade, fireworks, gondola rides, bike rides, favorite restaurants...)
For the evening of the Fourth, I went full-on red, white and blue with a navy and white tassel dress by Reformation and accessorized with my beloved Belgian Bag in bright red and a pair of gold and navy-flecked cork wedges. In case I haven't mentioned, I am currently six months pregnant. To be honest, I am not a fan of maternity clothes - I did not wear them during my last pregnancy and I do not plan on wearing them this time around - with the exception of maternity jeans (there really is no substitute for those!) I recently discovered Reformation, a sustainable clothing company based out of LA, and bought a couple of dresses in looser silhouettes, that worked perfectly. It can certainly be difficult navigating through this season's crop tops, cut outs and fitted styles.
