How is it already July?! The year is half over and the summer is kind of half over too… although here it feels like summer is just starting! I can’t believe the 4th of July is just two days away. It’s always been my favorite holiday, no surprise since I’m such a big summer lover. I’m looking forward to doing some festive things in the sun on Thursday. I wanted to share some outfit inspiration ahead of the day in case you’re stuck with what to wear. Each of these outfits can easily be worn all summer long.
I’m planning on wearing this body suit and these shorts in the morning and then changing into a cute red one piece swimsuit, coverup and this hat for the afternoon. I think we’ll head home before the fireworks and just watch them from the front yard after the kids are asleep. But this set would be so cute to wear if you’re looking for something cozy.
Happy Monday! Starting the week with a little instagram roundup. It’s been awhile since I did a post like this, but wanted to share in case you haven’t seen a few of my favorite posts from May.
As always, I’m including all the links below the images.
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to spend the day at the brand new Villas Fashion Island apartments. We were wined and dined by True Food Kitchen, enjoyed a tour of the beautiful grounds, had a special fashion presentation by Fashion Island and ended the day relaxing by one of their gorgeous pools. It was pretty amazing.
I know mid-September seems like a crazy time for a swimwear post, but it’s the best time of year to stock up! If you’re going on any tropical trips around the holidays or after the new year, you’ll be forced to pay full price and your summer glow will be long gone. Right now things are a little picked over and marked down like crazy which makes it the perfect time to shop!
I’ve had a slight obsession with monokinis this year. Also seen here and here. There’s just something so flattering about a one piece with cut outs. Plus you can just throw on a pair of cutoffs and go anywhere and look so chic.
The leaf print suit I’m wearing here is a recent find. At under $20 it’s a steal! I wish I had it all summer long, it would have been the perfect piece to pack on my honeymoon.
