Good Intentions


I think I may have jinxed myself...in a good way. Earlier this week I was complaining how it was too hot to layer clothes and that the summer heat was taking it's toll when it came to getting dressed. Well hello, overcast skies, breezy winds, walking down park trails without sweating and a spring-like evening at the end of June. We will take it. 

Yesterday, we spent an hour or so at the park, one of my favorites in the area. The girls were itching to run wild, our dog deserved a break from the backyard and we all needed a dose of fresh wildflowers and scenic lake views. This is just another reason I live for summer nights; no homework, schedules, tardy bells and the sun doesn't set until almost nine o'clock.

July 4th outfit idea
Old Navy Dress // Forever 21 Denim Vest  (option here and here) // Nine West Wedges (option here and here) // Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace (20% off with code rayne20) // Kendra Scott Skylar Earrings // Michael Kors Watch c/o The Jeweler's Wife // Gorjana Griffin Ring c/o // Costa Del Mar Glasses (option here)

I picked up this dress from Old Navy during their summer dress sale with the intention of wearing it for our planned July 4th festivities. Well, if you are anything like me, you know how hard it is to save something new that is scheduled a week away. Let's just go with celebrating our tried and true red, white and blue early. It's better than being late, right? 

Below are a few other pieces that I wouldn't mind slipping on next week for Independence Day, but let's be honest, I think I did enough damage last weekend when Ross and the girls were out of town. In my defense, the dress is the only thing new, on sale and supports next week's holiday. 

OUTFIT & STYLE IDEAS for JULY 4TH



Have a great weekend and be safe. See you Monday!

P.S. Don't forget about the 20% off code for all Kendra Scott Rayne necklaces. Use rayne20 at checkout!

What a great option for a festive dress for the 4th - especially because it can be worn on any old Summer day as well.
