Fourth of July Style Recap

Happy hump day gals! Oh man, my weekend was just chaotic but so full of fun. I’m still recovering from the endless Fourth of July festivities. My holiday was spent in Topeka, Kansas with my best friend (check Instagram this afternoon for a bestie picture!) We spent every day in the pool with other party goers and ended every night wishing we hadn’t eaten so much. Seriously, I’ve never had pulled pork that had been smoking for 12 hours but oh my goodness it was divine! Food and the Fourth just go hand in hand.

Being that I love my outfits to coordinate with the merriment of every holiday season, I had to wear my Lilly Pulitzer fireworks print skirt that debuted last summer. How cute does it look with the popsicle tank?! It was such an easy outfit to wear because reds and blues go together so well- just like freedom and fireworks!

My best friend, Jessica, and I walked over to the gardens at Lake Shawnee to enjoy the flowers, bunny rabbits, and little goslings waddling around. Being that we’re girls always looking for a great photo op, we stood around taking pictures for my blog and her Instagram. What can I say? Bloggers never take a break!

Unfortunately, the night ended in a bit of tragedy. While the entire street was out shooting off fireworks, a truck accidentally hit a woman crossing the road and killed her. We heard the sirens and then walked down the street to see what was going on. Paramedics were doing CPR and at the point I turned away. She was declared dead at the hospital. It’s so awful how a seemingly cheery event can turn deadly so fast. It seemed the fireworks went off in the sky as a way to mark her sad passing.

For the rest of the evening we tried to enjoy ourselves and celebrate our county’s 240th birthday. Being the proud American I am, I can’t help but get a little teary eyed watching fireworks light up the sky while sitting in a lawn chair surrounded by people who share my love of country. It’s lovely isn’t it?
