Stars and Stripes

Wow.  It’s been a hot minute since I’ve put up a new blog post.  To be honest, life has been crazy busy the last couple of weeks, and I just needed a bit of a break.  But it feels great to be back today and I am so excited to be bringing you a little outfit inspiration for the 4th of July!!!  Can you believe that the 4th is less than one week away?  I know I can’t.  For me, the 4th of July will always be the official kick off to summer, and I can’t wait to celebrate all weekend long!!

Top (DownEast Outfitters, check in store), also love this, this, this, this, and this | Shorts | Necklace | Hat | Sunnies | Platforms, also love these

Thank you guys so much for stopping by!  Hope you’re having a great week!

Gingham

I love this little gingham top.  It’s such an easy, breezy piece to just throw on and go. And guess what?  It would be perfect to wear on the 4th of July!  It also comes in a few other colors and prints and is less than $15.  Definitely a great piece to add to your closet this summer!

Red, White, and Blue

So, I’m kind of sort of obsessed with this dress.  And you know why?  Because it is one of the most versatile pieces in my closet.  I love that I can totally dress it up (like in today’s post), or that I could wear with it with a pair of Chuck Taylors, or some cute wedges and a floppy hat.  Pieces like this, my friends, are the best and most cost-effective things you can add to your wardrobe.  Plus, wouldn’t this dress be super cute dressed down for the 4th of July?

Romper Time

When I stumbled on a romper version of my favorite shirt ever, I knew that I had to have it.  But because I have long legs, and a short torso (I’m still only 5’3″), I tend to struggle with finding rompers that fit my body type.  So when I put it on and it fit perfectly (and felt like pajamas!) it was a definite no-brainer.  And it really is a perfect summer addition to my wardrobe that is different than anything else I own, all the while being as familiar as my favorite shirt.  And an added bonus?  It’s the perfect thing to wear for the 4th of July paired back to red heels and a bold red lip!

Road Trip

Justin’s grandmother passed away a few days before the 4th of July. And since the service was in North Dakota and flights were ridiculously expensive, we decided to pack up our things (having just barely unpacked from our last adventure), and hit the road to tackle the 15 hour drive.

Outside of the service, we didn’t have a plan-just the bikes, our pups, and the open road. And so, we decided to create a little adventure out of the circumstances and enjoyed a few days in Justin’s home town with family before deciding to head to Red Lodge, Montana to do some epic biking and celebrate the 4th. We even took a little (ok, an unintentionally really LONG) detour through Yellowstone on our way back to the SLC. And while I couldn’t be happier to be home (or any more exhausted), I am so grateful that we were able to make the trip and celebrate the life of Justin’s Grandma Wood!

And so, I thought it only fitting to share some Instagram snaps with all of your to commemorate our completely unexpected and unplanned 8 day adventure…
