What do you wear to a 4th of July BBQ, Firework Viewing, Party Etc
This is a super easy answer! Unless there is a suggested dress code ie - this is a cocktail event so please dress in your best summer whites, the door is completely open to what you would like to wear! In that instance, you think about all the places you will be hopping around to that day, what the weather is like and the feeling that you would like to present in your dedicated style! Although you're more than welcome to rock your red, white and blue colors, this is not necessary! I once had someone ask me when I taped a segment why I didn't have more of an Americana look. Since it wasn't mandatory that I wore one, I prescribe to the theory that Americana style doesn't mean a certain kind of look NOR does it mean that certain colors must be worn.
For me it's about comfort! If I'm not going to be at the pool, more than likely, I would rather be decked out in a super cute flowy maxi with fun accessories. I know there will be tons of pics, if it happens to cool down a bit or you are in extreme AC you're covered. I love having that goddess look when I'm out and having those fun neutral tones. This allows me play with my jewelry and as I am a huge believer in mixing metals, the above pieces by Bottega Veneta, Satya Jewelry and Ila & I are so drool worthy and pair perfectly with a new fave line of mine - Jen's Pirate Booty! Whatever you choose, it's all about fun! Have an amazing Fourth of July.
The summer is here and we're so happy about all the possibilities that it can bring! Last month (yes it is the last day of May so we're talking about April), we introduced you to two weeks of some of our favorite bikinis and paired them with fab looks! In addition, these bikinis will be at Curve in NY and/or Las Vegas! We love covering Curve in Las Vegas and can't wait to share all the amazing intimates, swimwear and men's underwear while we're there! But if you thought that we were going to stop talking bikinis, we had to include a post about Maaji Swimwear and pair it up just in time for the summer! In addition, we love that we are launching our nearly month long giveaway of Maaji Swimwear (we can't wait to see them at Curve Las Vegas)! THREE fab winners will be selected on June 28th by simply visiting Maaji Swimwear's amazing bikini site and selecting their favorite bikini and saying how they will accessorize it. Your favorite bikini and how you accessorize it will be included on this post within the comments section. We'll select our three favorite comments and the winners will have the opportunity to win their bikini that they included on their post based on availability. What we love is that this will take place right before 4th of July which is one of the biggest summer holidays! We're super excited to partner with Maaji Swimwear!
I live for accessories - finding them, wearing them and sharing them. It's not just about those that are luxury items it's the meaning behind them because they tell a story. Today's post is a series of stories that makes this necklace very important to the creator as well as those that benefit from it and I hope that it compels you to assist by getting one for yourself!
Chairman of the Board is a super cute jewelry line that takes pieces of classic board games into jewelry that we can wear. The pieces are found in yard sales, antique shops and more. It's a passion that I know that my friend has had and channeled into this business. On 4th of July, I had a post about my Scrabble K that I adore and love wearing! As I read a Facebook post from him yesterday I found out about his Y Subway Token Necklace where 25% of the sale would go to "Y No Cure Charity" for the ALS Lou Gehrig's disease. I love wearing pieces that benefit something else and the fact that you can wear something from another time but support someone today is amazing.
