Hello, July!

Summer is in full swing & it’s hot, hot, hot! If you’re like me, you’re reaching for those easy, breezy pieces to wear & eating plenty of ice cream to keep cool. Plus, the 4th of July is THIS week! I thought I would share with you what I’m wearing this year to celebrate. I also posted my Red, White, & Blue Favorites recently, so make sure you check that out if you need more festive outfit inspiration.

The Dress

This tie sleeve, button front midi dress in red check is literally my 4th of July dress of dreams. It’s made of cotton, making it super breathable & perfect to wear on hot summer days. Not to mention, it’s on sale & comes in 7 different colors & patterns. The only thing I would say about this dress is that the top is a bit snug. I would consider sizing up.

How cute does this vintage looking bow look with this dress? I love the subtle print mixing to create that bit of intrigue in the outfit.

Keeping It Cool

Ice cream is definitely my favorite way to keep cool during the summer months. If you live in Richmond, you have to head to Scoop for some of the best ice cream in the city. I got a double scoop cone with strawberry & sweet basil with was such a delicious combo. The basil took me right back to all the fresh basil we ate while in Italy.

I will say, eating an ice cream cone with a bold red lipstick was a bit challenging, but it was so worth it! How can you not wear red lipstick on the 4th of July?! I’m wearing my favorite red, So Marylin by Charlotte Tilbury, which is my perfect true red.
