Fourth of July Outfit Inspo


Hi, y’all! Can you believe that the Fourth of July is two weeks away?! I seriously can’t believe how fast June flew by. But I am counting down the days because we are headed to Daytona Beach for the NASCAR race (of course), but also an extended stay at my all-time FAVORITE hotel, Tropical Manor. Y’all may have seen the posts I have done on this retro hotel in the past including THIS and THIS. I am seriously OBSESSED. And as I prep for this trip I am, of course, doing some shopping and I wanted y’all to join me.

Aside from Easter, the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday to dress for. I love red, white, and blue almost as much as I love America. (Side note… I recently found out that I’m a daughter of the American Revolution so this holiday is extra special this year!) So I thought I would round up some of my most recent Americana outfits to make it easy for you to get your look ready so you can focus on how you’re gonna celebrate!

I must start with saying that it doesn’t get more classic on the Fourth of July than a good pair of high-waisted denim. I have paired mine with everything from swimsuits (for hot summer days) to pullovers (for chillier nights). So if you choose to invest in one thing from this post, make it that!


How I Edit My Photos on a Phone

Hi, loves! I am BACK with another tutorial. Today, I want to share how I edit my photos on my phone. While I love a good Lightroom preset, sometimes there isn’t time, wifi, or even a computer to allow for it. And like many of y’all, it’s usually just way easier to edit a photo on your phone and get to posting! So I am going to walk you through the exact edits that I do to each of my photos before I post them on Instagram. If you want to follow along, be sure to download my go-to photo editing app PicTapGo HERE.

Dress: Maggy London c/o | Espadrilles: H&M (Only $25!) | Earrings: Lisi Lerch c/o | Sunglasses: J.Crew | Bag: Clare V. (Dupe HERE) | Scarf: H&M | Hat: Brixton

Hi, loves! I know I often toss around the word “favorite”, but that’s only because I try to use this blog to share brands and products that I genuinely love with you. So today I want to introduce you to a new favorite, Maggy London. Maggy London prides themselves on having something for every woman. They understand the power of women — the strength, perseverance and passion of women — and understand that no two women are exactly the same. So if you are on the hunt for the perfect dress for your personality, your body and your lifestyle, keep reading!

I happened upon this gorgeous maxi while scrolling through their site and it was love at first site. You know that one piece in your closet that just feels so you? The Mariana Maxi is IT for me! From the tiered maxi hem to the pom pom trim, this maxi is about as sweet as can be! When it comes to sizing, it does run a little large. I am wearing my regular size 6, but should have sized down to a 4 for a more snug fit.

While this dress is my personal favorite, Maggy London has so many classic pieces and timeless silhouettes. Be sure to shop them all HERE.
