Hi friends! I’m down in Florida this week for my grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary. Summer is definitely in full force down here and with Fourth of July around the corner, I wanted to share some red, white and blue style inspiration. First, I’ll share how I am styling red, white and blue this summer. Then, I’ll share a few cute and patriotic red, white and blue tops to complete your Fourth of July outfits.
For a casual look, I paired a pretty red floral cami with my high-waisted mom jeans – a new favorite! I found my cami on amazon earlier this year and got it specifically for the Fourth of July. It runs TTS and does not come tied. I just decided to tie it since so had high-waisted jeans on.
For a dressier look, I styled navy paperbag shorts with a fitted striped red, white and blue tee. I also paired them with my super affordable rattan earrings from Amazon. Not pictured are the nude espadrilles I can’t stop wearing! For the shorts, I sized up to make sure they were super flowy, kind of like a skirt. The floral cami would totally work with these shorts as well! A style tip for tucking tops into paperbag shorts: tuck the whole top in, all the way around, and then pull it out little by little until you get the look you’re going for.
Now for some extra red, white and blue style inspiration, I am sharing some stylish tops to easily pull together a patriotic and cute outfit.
I can’t wait to wear these outfits in just a couple weeks when we are at the beach in South Carolina.
Now, I’d love to hear from y’all – what will you be wearing this Fourth of July and what will you be doing? Do you have a favorite look of the two I shared?

Summertime is kicking off and we have three months of fun in the sun awaiting us! At the start of each new season, I love to share the new and old pieces in my wardrobe that I’ll be wearing, along with how I’ll be styling them. My hope is the rundown of summer style must-haves will help you get the most out of your wardrobe and give you some inspiration for new styles to try.
Now for my 14 Summer Style Must-Haves …
Note: Each must-have item below is linked with the item I own, followed by a few additional options at various price points.
Finding a good bathing suit that fits you well is key! I’m obsessed with the scoop neck one piece suit pictured above. The cut is practical and simple, the fit is perfect and the print is fun! It also comes in a classic bikini, if that’s more your style.
I love cover-ups! There are a lot of wrap ones this season, but I really like the ones I can throw over my head and go. The one I found on Amazon this season is such a steal and comes in a ton of styles!
I still can’t get enough of leopard. Plus, I have a true obsession with leopard print being on my feet. So it was a no-brainer to get some leopard-print sandals. The ones I got have such a nice cushion to them and the higher band keeps them from sliding off.
I’ve been pretty lucky finding shorts at different price points that fit well! My white denim shorts, pictured above and below, are more expensive, but really great quality and fit true to size. The faded denim shorts, pictured below, are an amazing steal if you’re on a budget. They fit true to size but I ordered up just for a more relaxed fit.
I love the straw hat I got this spring. Pictured below (and all over my Instagram!), it just has a way of spicing up my summer outfits and pulling them together. It doesn’t hurt that it keeps my face from getting too much sun either.
Midi dresses are definitely having a moment right now, and I’m all about it. As someone on the taller side (5′ 8″), it is so nice to not worry if a maxi dress will be long enough. The one I’m wearing above fits true to size and could easily take you from day to night.
For our spring beach trip, I found an affordable basket purse that I thought would be fun. Now, I’m surprised much it’s already been put to good use. They are perfect for the beach and summer in general! I also was in need of a new tote for work and travel, so I got one with a mix of straw and a leather bottom. It is so cute!
I know! This is as basic as it gets, but there’s no better time to be sporting a fresh white top than the summertime. I found a great light linen, pocket tee that I’ve been wearing on repeat. But, I also like to have a dressier white tank in the summer. They just go with EVERYTHING.
Last but not least, this is a pretty obvious summer must-have for me. I love heeled espadrilles, but there are some cute espadrilles that don’t have a heel. If you want something more comfortable and just as cute, I recommend these!
Phew, if you made it through my list, thank you!! Now, I would love to know. What are your summer style must-haves? Are any of them the same as mine? Let me know what you can’t stop wearing this season in the comments!
Hello friends! Today, I am sharing what’s inside the FabFitFun Summer 2019 box, plus a 20% OFF coupon code for those of you who want to try it out. If you have been following the blog for a while, you know I love getting these boxes. I have never kept a subscription box membership as long as I have with FabFitFun and the reason is easy – they consistently deliver high-quality products, a fun variety of seasonal beauty, style and home products and the value per box is amazing. Now, I’ll let this season’s box speak for itself. Here’s a run down of everything inside this year’s FabFitFun Summer box!
I picked the Shower Gel and Bum Bum cream because it is designed to tighten and smooth your skin – just what I need before I head to the beach! The scent of both of these is amazing and the Bum Bum cream has great reviews on Sephora specifically about reducing cellulite. Needless to say, I’m excited to test both of these out.
This was one of the hardest customizations I’ve ever had to pick from! After thinking it through, I chose the treatment masks because I love masks and these hydrating and brightening ones sound so divine. But, because I really wanted the west elm bowls, I opted to pay $15 to add those as an extra item to my box. That’s another great thing about FabFitFun — you can add extra items at a great discount!
COOLA is my new favorite sunscreen brand, ever since I got some in last summer’s FabFitFun box. So, choosing their makeup setting sunscreen spray was a no-brainer. I have already tested it out and am thoroughly impressed! It doesn’t leave a residue or feel sticky and it lasted throughout one long, humid day. love that it has sunscreen in it too.
The items that everyone gets in their box are a great selection. I’ve already been using the rose facial spray on repeat, and it’s something I would never think to buy myself. I have also never used a foot mask so I’m anxious to see how that works – and put my best (bare) feet forward this summer!
Overall, I am happy with the summer box. The total value of my box is $431.95! With my annual subscription each box costs $45. I’m always amazed how much value you get in just one box. So often, the price of just one item covers the cost of the box.
NOTE: The FabFitFun Summer box is still available as of June 9th at 5pm EST.
FabFitFun boxes come with a lot of fun extras as well. You get coupon codes for a lot of the brands featured in your box, a magazine, access to majorly discounted add-ons and access to FabFitFun TV which has workout videos, cooking videos and more.
