The 4th of July is a week away, are you prepared? Whether you’re going to the beach, the lake, or staying at home and throwing an Independence Day themed party, I’ve got you covered. The romper is one of my personal favorites. It’s a perfect cover up for a day by the pool, but it can also be paired with wedges for a night out or a 4th of July party. I also adore the sunnies from Urban Outfitters and monogrammed floppy hat, both are such classic looks. Click on the picture for a closer view or click the links below for specific items.
‘Red Happy 4th of July Stemless Wine Glass’ – $4.95 from Swoozies. This stemless wine glass also comes in blue.
A great wedge is one of my favorite accessories during the summertime. You can change your casual summer dress from a day outfit to a cute night outfit by dressing it up with a great pair of wedges! You can also wear a colorful top, white skinny jeans, and a pair of wedges for a dinner date.
I particularly like brown wedges (or neutral wedges) as you can tell from the picture below. But there are so many great neutral wedges that have a pop of color! For example, the ‘Emily 34 Aqua and Tan Platform Wedge Sandals from Lulu’s (#2). You can also experiment with several different types of wedges such as straw or cork.
In spirit of #FavoritesFriday, here are nine wedges that I think are fabulous for this summer…
‘Emily 34 Gold Platform Wedge Sandals’ from Lulu’s $30.00
‘Emily 34 Aqua and Tan Platform Wedge Sandals’ from Lulu’s $30.00

Today’s #FavoritesFriday features fun, bright colors for this summer!
The ‘Beaded Snake Gown’ by Mara Hoffman — $1,397. This dress obviously exceeds my budget, but #FavoritesFriday doesn’t have a budget! #FavoritesFriday is all about what are my current favorite things, no matter the price. This dress has a gorgeous back and the colorful detailed pattern is simply stunning.
Oscar de la Renta ‘Short Dotted Beaded Tassel Clip-On Earrings’ in ‘Sorbet’ from Neiman Marcus — $241. These earrings are so beautiful and so fun! As usual, I’m talking about tassels on my blog. I just can’t get enough of them!!
Joie ‘A La Plage Nice’ Metallic Thong Sandals in rose gold from Shopbop — $125. These shoes are a perfect example of a classic pair of thong sandals. These sandals come in several different colors and are perfect to pair with any outfit!
The ‘Bella Flamingo Raffia Clutch’ by Elaine Turner — $178. This bright pink clutch is made out of beach grass raffia with a genuine leather trim. This Elaine Turner clutch is perfect for this summer. I imagine pairing it with white jeans, wedges, a colorful top, and colorful/gold jewelry.

As a senior at the University of Mississippi and a proud member of Kappa Kappa Gamma (Delta Rho chapter), I know a thing or two about the ins and outs and the dos and don’ts of sorority fashion in the South. Being a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I have made both lifelong memories and friends.
Now that we’ve addressed the cliché why-I-love-my-sorority-talk, check out some of the must-haves for sorority girls in the South!
The Lilly Pulitzer Jumbo Agenda (top left) — An absolute must in order to stay organized in college and plan all of your sorority social and philanthropy events! This agenda comes in many fun, colorful prints!
The iPhone cover in Kappa Kappa Gamma print…of course! (middle top row) — Keep your phone covered, safe, and cute!
Pearl stud earrings (top right) — These are my go-to earrings on a daily basis while going to school, and pretty much every other day too! They’re an absolute classic. These earrings are the Tiffany & Co. Signature Pearl Earrings.
Rent the Runway! — This dress here is the ‘Cheetah Crawl Dress’ Mark & James by Badgley Mischka (bottom left) — I somewhat recently discovered Rent the Runway and I think it is down right brilliant! Seriously people, this website is GOLDEN. Rent the Runway is fantastic for date parties, formals, and other social events where you wouldn’t be caught dead in the same dress. If you want to know more about Rent the Runway and how it works, read my blog post about Rent the Runway.
The Tory Burch ‘Jaden’ Tote (middle bottom row) — Well I don’t have this, but I sure would love to! Every girl needs a cute and colorful tote to carry their homework and textbooks in.
The Metal Script monogram Necklace from Moon and Lola (bottom right) — I found out about Moon and Lola while reading a magazine years ago, I have loved it ever since. I never really monogrammed many things before college, just my Jon Hart Luggage, a scarf, towels, and bedding…okay so maybe I monogrammed a couple of things. But when I started my freshman year at Ole Miss I was in awe of exactly how many things girls (and even boys!) were monogrammed. I mean you name it: key chains, bath curtains, rain jackets, sweatshirts, Nike shorts…the list goes on and on! I immediately followed suit and I haven’t stopped since. My mom always said I have the perfect initials for a monogram (MHE). I’m going to be in quite the predicament whenever I get married…oops.
I did two #FavoritesFriday today because I have so many new favorite things!! As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral. Neutral colors create the look of the ever so timeless animal print, therefore it must be a neutral right? Right. And I need these items right meow. Leopard is a great way to dress up a simple outfit, whether it’s in your shoes or your clothes.
