Hey lovelies! I was browsing Amazon the other day and came across these really cute Valentino Rockstud sandal dupes! I love designer things just as much as the next person but I can’t afford to pay almost $350 for rubber sandals!! Crazyyy. So these dupes are the perfect compromise and they also come in 9 colors! They’re $19.99 and seriously look just like the originals.

Fourth of July is this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited! I love this holiday for many reasons and one of them is sporting red, white, and blue in style! I love the way Americans celebrate their freedom. It’s a beautiful expression of who we are and that there are some traditions that won’t change.
I still haven’t decided what I’m wearing or even what my official plans are. I have many ideas floating around in my head but they all have one thing in common: bug spray! I get eaten alive every year. I also might attempt to make strawberry shortcake with some blueberries for added color, but don’t count on it.
I’ll take a selfie to share with you on my Instagram when I figure out what my Fourth of July style will include. For now, enjoy my inspiration!

Favorite Summer Color
One of my favorite things about summer are the bright colors we get to wear, particularly coral. This light orange color is one of the few warm weather tones that’s in my color palette. During the spring and summer, I try to find coral pieces to add to my wardrobe. One of my favorite accessories at the moment is my Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi. It’s a beautiful coral lipstick that was literally made for my skin tone.
In traditional preppy fashion, I also sport navy blue during the summer months (more like all year round). Navy pairs well with coral and is a nice contrast to it. Try wearing a navy pencil skirt and coral sleeveless top for a cute work outfit. If you have a beach trip planned, consider finding a bikini that has both of these colors in it. You could even color block by wearing a coral bikini top and navy bottoms.

Oh Monday, you’re here again. I was hoping we might just skip right to Friday and forget about the work week. It doesn’t work that way apparently. I’m sitting here in bed wearing my pjs and drinking my coffee listening to the birds chirping, why are they so darn perky in the morning? I’m a groggy mess at the moment. I’m still recovering from my wild weekend (kidding). For Father’s Day, my family and I went to church and then headed to a BBQ place for obvious reasons. I really do have a great dad. I was one of the lucky kids!
Now onto important stuff, like what I wore this weekend (sarcasm intended). Saturday I spent shopping for bathing suits with my sister and her friend. I dreaded these shopping trips when I was her age. To her credit though, she looks way cuter in them than I ever did. To brighten the otherwise humbling shopping trip, I wore floral print shorts from Old navy and an orange, loose blouse also from Old Navy. I toted around my new Kate Spade bag too! That little thing makes me so happy.
On Sunday, I wore this adorable Lauren Conrad dress with a bright pink Aldo necklace I picked up in Texas (it’s on sale too!) For dramatic effect, I rocked a sunhat. There’s nothing that makes me feel classier than a big, floppy sunhat. It’s so Meredith Blake! Parent Trap reference anyone?
After this weekend though, I’ve determined that there are three things I can’t live without during the summer: big sunglasses, bright clothing, and a side braid. You’ll see me with a braid in my hair quite often this summer, this humidity is ruining my hair and this is the only way I can deal with it. Let me know hat are your three things are in a comment below!
