As I've mentioned, I LOVE summer. Seriously the best season for me. I kind of wish I could live in Southern California (like 3 of my siblings - SO jealous), but that just isn't the case, so I'll just bask in the glow of the hot sun while I can!
4th of July is always so fun! I'm usually at my family's lake house in Massachusetts. I grew up going to this lake every summer with all of my cousins and it has so many memories. My parents bought a newer house on the same lake a few years ago and we're making more memories there! My kids absolutely love it and anytime I can be out on the water, I'm happy! Also - I get to get out on my paddleboard, which is one of my happy places for sure!
Here are some cute outfit options for the 4th!
I love this look!! Patriotic, but not completely over the top. I bought this skirt a while ago at a local boutique, (Echo - which I love!) but I'm linking some other fun options below.
Our 4th is usually SUPER casual. I mostly just wear my bathing suit all day! This year, I'm planning to wear my kimono as a coverup - which is so fun! Love the versatility of wearing a kimono with jeans and a tank or as a coverup.
I found this kimono that I've been eyeing as well and it would look really adorable with a navy or red suit! I'd also love it with my navy and white striped bikini. Kimonos are my favorite right now! And this one is under $20!
I love these pants! I have them in multiple colors and these are perfect for the 4th. Super affordable and cute! Love it paired with a denim jacket too, although given the weather we've been having, I don't think I'll need it!
This dress is a great Amazon find! Such a fun casual dress or coverup. Also love the look tied at the bottom to switch it up a bit.
This suit is perfect for the 4th! I love Boden suits - they are really well made and they come in long torso for us tall gals :) The cut and pattern of this one is super flattering too!
This is one of my fave dresses this summer. Super comfy and so adorable! Also - it has pockets!! Love it paired with these chunky red earrings. For local friends - I got the earrings at Cream Boutique and the dress at La Mer Clothing & Goods! Also linking below to buy online.
This top is really cute, but short! I typically pair it with a cami underneath, but it also looks cute with high-waisted shorts. Keep in mind you might show a little belly with this - not sure I can pull that off at 40 years old with 3 kids!! But it's a really fun top.
I love throwing on a bright scarf to be festive! This top is from another local boutique: Elizabeth Boutique. Linking below to buy it online.
How fun are these earrings for the 4th!!?? I just heard about this great online boutique for earrings and I've already bought 3 different pairs and want to try more!! Here's a link to these earrings and they're only $10!!: https://maesandco.com/collections/featured/products/american-flag-earrings-1
I also love these towels! We have them up at the Lake and they are fun for the whole summer.
This is another great Amazon find. There are lot of different colors and patterns and it's under $20!! I would definitely size-up in this one...
Hope you enjoy your 4th! Fingers crossed for good weather!!
Stopped in at Target this week after work one day and tried on some fun summer dresses (plus a jumpsuit and a bathing suit!).

Summer Capsule Wardrobe
The unofficial start of Summer is finally here and I’m SO psyched! Summer is my favorite season - give me hot weather every day of the week!
Anyway, I wanted to share a capsule wardrobe for Summer. “What the heck is a capsule wardrobe”, you say? It’s a set of basic pieces that work together that you can add more trendy items to. A capsule wardrobe allows you to invest in some essential pieces that should last a long time. Here are my picks for this season (click on the images to buy - affiliate links used):
Enjoy and Happy Summer!!
