A lot of my friends are headed to the beach this weekend so I thought it was only appropriate to share the perfect beach attire for a July 4th barbecue!!
When it comes to parties and barbecues on the beach, I love an easy and casual outfit. My go-to outfit is basically white shorts, comfortable flats that I can slip on and off, and a pop over shirt (I’m currently loving this blue popover form J.Crew right now). I always try to bring a blanket to sit on as well as you never really know what the seating situation is going to be like. I’ve blogged this beach towel a few times now this summer and I still need to buy it. In case you missed it, I shared 10 of the raddest beach towels for summer.
If you’re still on the hunt for the perfect summer sandal, look no further than Marc Fisher espadrilles. I’ve blogged about these shoes a few times already this summer but several retailers like Nordstrom have marked down the espadrilles. I love this print and it’s now 35% off, only $102 dollars!! Yes, please.
It’s crazy to think how many retailers have started their “end of season” sale. Didn’t summer just start?! We’re not even in to July yet, but hey – I’ll take it. We have two more full months of summering to go so the more mark downs the better!!! And pssssst… to give you all a heads up. The Nordstrom Anniversary Pre-Sale will begin JULY 14th so mark your calendars!! I’ll be sharing the best deals to steal this summer to get you ready for fall. If you want first dibs, all you have to do is sign up for a Nordstrom card. You can apply for a Nordstrom debit or credit card to gain Anniversary Sale Early Access (July 14-21st). With the early access card, you will be the first to browse and shop all of the best brand-new arrivals at those super-sale prices. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is seriously my favorite sale of the year and I always stock up on classic wardrobe staples so I promise signing up for a card to get early access is 100% worth it. Have a great Tuesday, lovelies! Xo. Lauren
Good morning!! And Happy Monday, my friends. Hope you all had a great weekend. I’m so so excited to celebrate July 4th with my family and friends this weekend back in Cleveland. In case you missed it yesterday, I shared a few of my favorite options as to what to wear for July 4th right here.
Any who, I think you guys know my style by now but this nautical bedroom is SO up my alley. I came across the image originally on Serena and Lily’s Instagram account the other day and instantly knew I could recreate the look.
Designed by Suzane Kasler, this kids room has a major pops of color and is perfectly layered in blues and whites. The feathered wallpaper is by Serena and Lily which I think makes the entire bedroom. I love the oversized framed sail flags which is so easy to recreate in any room within your home. Pottery Barn has multiple options to chose from + a whole framed gallery wall already created for you. Although I wasn’t able to source them (they may be custom), the rolling arm chairs are another statement maker in this bedroom that I’m slightly obsessed with. Don’t you worry, I will keep looking high and low for those chairs but I did find this chair option from One Kings Lane. I’ve rounded up all of the “get the look” items below. If you ever come across a room online or on Pinterest that you would want me to recreate, just shoot me a note at email@example.com!! Xoxo. Lauren
Can you believe July 4th is a week away?! I seriously cannot.
July 4th is one of my favorite holidays – hello, barbecues, beach days, sunshine, family and friends!!! I’ll be heading back home to Cleveland for the long weekend and can’t wait. This year will be very low key compared to previous July 4th’s I’ve spent in Connecticut and Chicago so I’m very much looking forward to it! If you’re not sure what to wear July 4th, I’ve got you covered. Today I spent the day browsing on what I should wear so naturally I wanted to share my finds with you guys.
I rounded up some of my favorite pieces you can rock next weekend (and for the rest of summer). Insert white jeans, jean shorts, dresses and a whole lot of red, white and blue stripes. Yes, yes, yes. Do you have any fun plans lined up for the 4th? Xo. Lauren
