Today was a day spent relaxing, taking the dog for a walk and walking through town with my little siblings; which perfectly explains this super casual, comfortable outfit. I’ve wanted a crochet tank top for awhile now and came across this one in Hollister. This style tank is great to dress up or down, to throw on over your swimsuit or to tuck half into a jean 70s button down style skirt (American Apparel has a cute one here). It’s one of my favourite go-to pieces in my summer wardrobe!
My lovely friend took me out for a nice dinner for my birthday, and being the fashionista bloggers that we are, we of course had to take pics of our outfits! I am in absolute LOVE with this Missguided bodysuit. It truly fits like a gem and can be dressed up or worn casual with some cute high waisted shorts. Also – my friend Gabby just started her own blog! Check out her page!
The crop top is from H&M (here) as well as the skort. These skort’s are really in style right now and you have probably seen them around a lot. Some styles come fully in a skirt, but I love the short version. It makes it more casual and comfy 🙂
I wore a black bandeau underneath the crop top to go with the black Michael Kors heels (here) and added just a touch of silver jewelry with tiny midi-rings, a small silver Cape-Cod bracelet, a small silver necklace and silver earrings that had a light aqua blue in the center. I found my really cute midi-rings for less at Pac Sun (here) and my earrings for less at Forever 21 (here)
I posted an ‘Outfit of the Day’ post not too long ago wearing these same daisy shorts from LF Clothing with a different white crop top.
The black and white striped crop top is from Banana Republic. It was a handy-down from my mom from when cropped tops were in-style in the 90’s.
I wear this top with so many different shorts and wear these shorts with other different crop tops all the time! They’re two of my favorite pieces I have in my wardrobe and can be worn for any casual summer day 🙂
Living my entire life in a town that celebrates the Fourth of July for the entire month of July, and holds the oldest parade in the history of the Nation just for the occasion, being patriotic isn’t just a one day thing. I goat gel manicure done the day before the Fourth! All red nails, a white accented nail with a navy anchor, they don’t go out of style for the entire summer!
Here are a few other cute ideas for July Nails:
This picture I saw on Alex and Ani’s Instagram page. Check out their page here
These last four pictures I got from another Instagram page. The nail artist who created there, Alex Leonti, works at a nail salon in Bristol, RI, but no matter where you are from, you can follow her to see great nail designs and to create your own unique designs!
For Fourth of July Celebrations, or cheering on the USA in the World Cup games, these are my go-to pieces for this years month of July.
My rope “Bristol” bracelet was given to me as a gift from my mom, and was bought at a little boutique called Aqua in Bristol, Rhode Island. They also have another small boutique in RI called ‘Salt’. Neither stores can be found online but they do have a Facebook page that can be found here … They also have an Instagram page where you can see a lot of their products!
The Bangles are Alex and Ani. I am obsessed with this company (as are a lot of other people) because it was made in my little home of Rhode Island and are made entirely of recyclable materials and each charm has its own special meaning. Pairing a bunch together (no matter silver or gold) is the way to go and looks so cute! Here are the names of mine:
-The Sapphire Luxe Beaded Bangle
-The Bamboo Beaded Bangle,
-The Starfish Charm Bangle
-The University of Rhode Island Logo Charm Bangle
-Eye of Horus Bangle
-Fluer de Lis Charm Bangle
The red white and blue wrap bracelet I don’t have the card for nor could I find it online anymore.
You can find an Alex and Ani store near you and in small boutiques, and if not you can order them online at their website here!
The necklace which you can see in one of the pictures is an American Flag charm that looks like a Pandora charm. I also got this as a gift from Coggeshell Jewelers, also a small jewelry store that is in little Bristol, RI. They don’t have an online store either, but you can keep updated with their store by their Facebook page found here
I love the atmosphere and spirit around the Fourth of July and accessories are always the best attributes to an amazing outfit!
Today’s outfit of the Day is on the lovely Rishah! Cute as a button and sporting the cutest floral summer pieces. Soft whites are perfect for summer, and floral is very in this year so this outfit hits all the perfect spots for summer 2014. Her white sleeveless shirt has small flowers cut into it. Her pastel floral shorts are absolutely adorable and are a major trend this year.
Her top is Divided by H&M. Similar ones can be found here.
Her Shorts are made by Talulah. Find more similar Talulah shorts & items here.
Kim Kardashian made memorable fashion moments in Paris as she awaited her wedding day. This outfit was worn out on a ice cream date with her new hubby, Kanye West. This is an every day outfit that can be worn by anyone! She looks absolutely stunning in these simplistic pieces and is back in amazing shape.
Long sleeved white v-neck with an open back, light blue skinny denim high ankle jeans and gold pointed, strappy heels. Simply beautiful (and Kanye in matching denim!)
