Embroidered Off the Shoulder Dress

 Dress: c/o Chicwish (comes in three colors!) // Sandals: Dolce Vita 'Deklon' // Bag: Sole Society// Sunnies: Ray-ban 'Erika' // Hat: Target // Necklace: Bauble Bar 

This dress has quickly become one of my go to's! With the ridiculously hot weather we've been having, I've been opting for light-weight, airy pieces. This dress is the perfect summer dress as it meets all of those requirements! I am in love with the off the shoulder trend and how easy to wear this dress is! The embroidery is adorable, but what really sold me was the light-weight cotton that makes this dress the ultimate 100 degree day dress! This dress currently comes in 3 colors, and I am definitely thinking purchasing one in each would be an investment!

Party Like It's 1776!

 It's one of the most wonderful times of the year! The 4th of July! Ever since I was little, the 4th has been one of my favorite holidays. It has always been filled with summer fun, including swimming and boating, good food, and fireworks. This year we will be celebrating like we always do, spending the day on the lake, BBQ-ing and curling up under the stars to watch the big firework show. 

As always, my 4th fashion involves lots of red, white and blue. This little scallop mini skirt is only $45 and one of my newest favorite pieces. It's the perfect summer skirt (it also comes in black) and is so comfortable! I paired it with the CUTEST top from Antique Garden that is only $24! I am obsessed with the high neckline and exposed zipper detailing in the back and have been wearing this top repeatedly! In fact, I changed out the accessories and un-tucked the shirt for a completely different look, so be looking for that on the blog next week! 

A quick little PSA...I know the 4th is filled with fireworks and with firework stands everywhere, it's hard not to indulge, but PLEASE be careful! After the wildfire that swept through my neighborhood at the beginning of this week completely devoured 30 homes, including the neighbors all around us (our house is literally one of the only standing on part of the street...we are so incredibly blessed), I have seen first hand how a small flame can quickly get out of hand. Pay attention to burn bans and make sure your area is not at risk. If you do purchase fireworks, be careful where you light them and use all precautions necessary, or just forgo them altogether and find out where you can watch your town's fireworks (usually free of charge and put on by professionals).  I don't want to be all naggy, but after seeing the devastation just outside my backdoor, I am definitely weary of personal fireworks on the 4th!

The Ultimate Summer Top

 Top: 'Summer Daze' top in beige c/o Jess Lea Boutique // Pants: Topshop // Shoes: Dolce Vita// Sunnies: Karen Walker // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Necklace: Kendra Scott // Ring: Kendra Scott// 

If you follow me on instagram, you may have noticed I've been wearing this shirt quite often lately. It's just the perfect top for summer, and I've been pairing it with anything and everything! I can't get over the embroidered detailing or tassel sleeves, but what ultimately makes this the best shirt ever is the off the shoulder style! I am in love! Jess Lea Boutique not only carries this top in beige, black and royal blue and just got a dress version in, which you can see here. Can I take one of each please?

Last weeks #WIWT blogger of the week was Ms. Oby Grace of I Spy Oby. First and foremost, how seriously adorable is this sweet girl?? Dying over all of the fun looks on her blog! Second, this post, perfectly titled 'The Color of Summer' is too fitting. Not only does Oby look like a summer dream, but the color combo is too perfect! Thanks for the inspo, gorgeous!

 Top: Ultimate Racerback Tank c/o Entourage // Pants: Up-Tempo Sport Leggings c/o Entourage  // Shoes: Nike 

 When it comes to working out, I am an outdoors girl. I much rather go for a walk, run or hike as opposed to spending time in the gym. This time of year is perfect for spending time outdoors. I especially love to take evening walks along the canal or at the river front! I am always looking for cute workout gear that is great quality and reasonably priced! Entourage clothing has recently introduced a line of work out gear, ENT Fit Collection, which is everything a girl could want in her work out clothes! Not only do they have a fabulous variety of pieces, but they are all reasonably priced (this outfit is under $50!). I am also obsessed with the material of these pieces! Lightweight with just enough support, but still breathable for warm summer night jogs!

Off the Shoulder Romper

 Romper: Red Clover Boutique c/o // Shoes: Dolce Vita // Sunnies: Karen Walker // Earrings: Kendra Scott 'Alex' // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff 'Mini Mac' // Bracelets: Old - similar here and here //

Red Clover Boutique is one of my favorite online shops! They NEVER disappoint with their adorable and unique pieces that are always affordable. I've been looking for a romper like this one for some time and was thrilled to find one at Red Clover! The off the shoulder top, fun print and tassel tie at the waist make this little number perfect for summer! The blues and reds also make this a contender for my 4th of July festivities! The best part about it? It's only $42! A perfect steal for something I am sure to wear often (ahem* at least once a week...) this summer!

The blog of the week from last week's link up is Laura of I do deClaire! I've seen this maxi on multiple bloggers, but never before have I had the urge to buy it like I do now! The mix of denim jacket, statement earrings and gold sandals is perfection! This is by far my FAVORITE way I have seen this dress! Laura, you look absolutely stunning! I definitely need to add this dress to my summer wardrobe ASAP!
