Stars and Stripes
It's 4th of July weekend, so I'm sure you have something fun planned! Before you go, I wanted to give you some ideas on cute simple looks and pieces to pack with you or a fun weekend full of fireworks, BBQ's, swimming, laying out on the beach, and of course lots of pics!
SHOP THE LOOKS BELOW
FOR THE BEACH
BAG: This festive bag is perfect for the weekend to carry all your beach necessities in, and will even work for a more rock n roll look when not celebrating independence day!
SUNSCREEN: When it comes to tanning, it's better to fake it than bake it, especially on your face. So make sure to keep it protected by applying a sunscreen! This one by Kate Somerville is my all time favroite because it smells good, is lightweight, not greasy, and have wrinkle-reducing peptides!
FACE MIST: I always keep a facial mist with me, especially on hot days, because it's nice to spritz it on for a refreshing feel and a little "wake me up". This one by Caudalié is my favorite because it's a nice refreshing smell and again very lightweight! BONUS: Tell your man it's also an awesome aftershave!
HIGHLIGHT: Knowing you're going to be out in the sun celebrating the holiday with friends, I'm sure you'll want to wear as little make up as possible. To help give you that glow, without having to wear tons of makeup, just apply some pretty highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones. It'll glisten in the sun perfectly and won't make you'll look over done, but just enough!
RED LIPSTICK: Again this will give you that extra pop and an instant festive look! Red lips are always perfect to wear when you're not wanting to wear a lot of face or eye makeup, and this velvety red one by NARS is my favorite!
BEACH TOWEL: Don't forget to pack this so that you'll have something to lounge around on while hanging out side! This one from Solana is super soft and comfy, and just festive enough with the blue stripes. Perfect for the holiday. Oh and how cute is the fringed detail??
FOR THE BBQ
EARRINGS: A fun pair of earrings are always a great addition and these star studs are perfect for a simple yet festive look!
SUNGLASSES: Add a pop of glam to your look with these fun blinged out red, white, and blue sunnies. I don't usually prefer a lot of bling, but it's always a nice addition when wanting to have some fun with your look, so these are perfect!
ROMPER: Rompers are great for the summer, because they're lightweight, easy to wear, and can also work as a bathing suit cover up!
ESPADRILLES: Espadrilles are a big trend this season, and these red ones will add a nice pop of red to your look, and any other look you wear throughout the summer!
SCARF: Show you're pride by tying this super cute American Flag printed scarf around your neck, and wear it with the romper or just the bathing suit! It'll be the perfect accessorie to both looks.
FOR THE POOL
BATHING SUIT TOP: Not only is this red top perfect for the weekend festivities, but will also look great with a cute pair of white or black culottes and heels layered under a well fitting bomber or moto jacket for a fun night out look!
BATHING SUIT BOTTOM: The rest of your look through out the day has been festive, so of course your bathing suit has to be! So these red white and blue striped bottoms will do just that!
Have fun and be safe!
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
