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.

  1. ‘Red Happy 4th of July Stemless Wine Glass’ – $4.95 from Swoozies. This stemless wine glass also comes in blue.

My Favorite Wedges for Summer 2014

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…

My Favorite Shoe Trends For Fall 2013

Some people think that once the weather gets cold you have to wear dark colors. I think that’s false. Just because the sun isn’t always shining and you’re not lounging by a pool in bright summer colors, doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to strictly be black. I think that you can be just as fun and colorful during the fall and winter months with your shoe choice! A pop of color can go a long way for an outfit. Whether it’s jewelry or a handbag, or even shoes, a pop of color can easily turn your drab winter outfit into something to remember! These shoes below are some of my personal favorites for this season. I think each of these shoes are classic and will stay classic.

The loafer has been around for a long time. J.Crew has stepped it up a notch with different materials such as calf hair, suede, fabric, and patent leather. These fun patterns and prints can be paired with skinny jeans and a simple, cute top and your shoes will pop! The black strap sandals from Steve Madden are perfect for a cocktail event or a date night with that special someone. My personal favorite are the gorgeous Michael Kors booties, perfect for a night out on the town or a special occasion.
