Happy 4th of July!


I hope each and every one of y’all have a day filled with lots of sun, grilling, and fireworks.

I’m personally going to be spending the day by the pool with my family and a close friend who I’ve known for over 10 years now.

Happy 4th y’all! 



P.S. Props to my dad for figuring out how to work my camera haha

Comfy and Casual for the 4th

2016 4th of july outfit

Here in Texas, the heat index is hitting the triple digits and there’s (of course) some lingering humidity.

So let’s be realistic, most Texas women (myself included) will not be dressed to the nines this 4th of July. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone dressed up that much on this particular holiday as that’s just not what happens.

One of the reasons I’ve always loved celebrating the 4th, besides hanging out by the water, the food, and the fireworks, of course, is that it’s such a casual holiday. A holiday that’s really just about relaxing and feeling good as we celebrate our day of independence.

Wishing y’all a happy 4th!

Snacking on Dylan’s Candy Bar candy while watching the sun go down at Santa Monica Beach was a great way to end our 2 day stay in L.A.
