The 4th of July is such a fun holiday!  It’s my grandmother’s birthday, and I always have fond memories of it growing up.  They had a condo in Myrtle Beach, SC when all the cousins were younger, and we always were at the beach together as a family that week.  My grandfather took us to the water slides, to play putt putt and to the fair that week, and we all had a blast!  Those were definitely the days of the care free life.  Ha!  Anyway, I love getting into the festive spirit for this holiday because it is always a celebration for my family.

My top is perfect for the occasion because it’s super lightweight and really comfy!!  It’s a little cropped just fyi, so I would wear bottoms that are more high waisted if you don’t want to show some skin.  I’ve also been in such a sneaker mood lately, and have worn these Gucci sneaks to death.  You could definitely pair this outfit back to a strappy sandal instead of a sneaker if you wanted!  A nude, white or even a denim one would be super cute!  Here are a few other July 4th inspired casual things you could wear:

Casual Camo Dress, Sneakers & Denim Jacket

Dress: Pam & Gela | Jacket: BP (runs big!  I’m wearing an XXS) | Sneakers: Gucciget a similar look for less here and here | Bag: Louis Vuitton; get the look for less here

I love an easy cotton summer dress!  I knew this one had to be mine right when I saw it.  It was a little long in the shoulders for me (I’m really short waisted & short in the shoulders), so I had alterations take it up about an inch.  I personally don’t like it when my bra shows under the arms, so I almost always have things tailored in the shoulders.  I wore it to work last week simple and casual with my Gucci sneakers that I got around Christmas and still love so much!  They’re so fun and sparkly and add pizazz to any outfit!!  The dress was super comfy all day and will be perfect this summer as the heat continues to rise.  Since it’s a racer back, I wear this bra with it.  I’ve found it to be the best one out there that gives great support and contouring, and is super soft!  This outfit would be perfect to wear for a weekend look, day off, or just any day that you want to look put together but comfy casual!

Fit Tips: My dress and shoes run TTS, but the denim jacket runs big.  I would size down in it at least one size.

I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve been in such a casual mood lately.  I think maybe it has something to do with the fact that I’ve had to dress up for work for so long now, that I’m just feeling like wearing more casual things.  Who knows?!  When I found this top, I knew it would force me to get out of that mindset and put me in the mood to look a little more polished.  This top is so cute and comfy and also comes in black.  So perfect for a fun going out to dinner top.  It runs TTS, not oversized like a lot of their items.  My ripped denim is seriously my new favorite denim!  The color is perfect for summer and I love that they’re high waisted.  You can even buy them in the inseam that you like.  I like the 30″ since I’m on the shorter side.  PS–size up 2 sizes in these jeans.  My Loubs run TTS, but many people size up bc the toe box is definitely narrow.

Our Vegas Girls Trip: All the fun details!

I had the amazing pleasure of going to Vegas last week for the trip of a lifetime with 5 of the best girls ever!  Jaclyn, Rachel, Micah, Jackie, Kristen and I flew out there last Thursday and stayed until Sunday at the Wynn Hotel.  Jaclyn, Rachel, Jackie and I flew together there and back and Micah and Kristen met us there bc Micah is in NJ and Kristen in Chicago.  As most of you know, right when we landed in Vegas, Jaclyn hurt her foot.  She and Micah were so excited to see each other that their hug was more like a tackle, and they both went tumbling to the ground.  We all felt so bad for Jaclyn, but everyone rallied and we all still managed to have the best time!!  It was really the best group of girls and everyone got along SO well!

The main reason we went was to see J Lo in concert, and let me tell you that it was INCREDIBLE!!  She puts on an amazing show, so if you ever have to opportunity to see her, I would highly highly recommend it.  We sang/screamed and danced our hearts out, and it couldn’t have been more fun!  We spent the majority of our other time just lounging in the hotel room and by the pool.  We rented a cabana on Friday and Saturday, which was such a treat!  So fun to hang out there and be waited on while we lounged.  The drinks were flying and we had a blast!

Below are some pics from the weekend with brief descriptions.  I hope you enjoy!  xoxo, Christian

Shop some of my other favorite cover-ups below!

Summer is here and I don’t know about y’all, but I want to live at the pool or the beach!  I’ve rounded up some of my favorite cover-ups and beach bags for you that are sure to take your pool or beach look to the next level.  Most can even double as an outfit if you happen to be out and about and want to grab lunch or head over to happy hour, and want to look cute and covered enough.  They would also be perfect for a day out on the boat or to a friend’s pool party.  Lastly, I can’t say enough about my flip flops.  I’ve had mine for a year now, and they have held up so well.  I wear them all the time, from the beach to the pool to errands on my days off, they still look brand new.  I’m one of those people that is rough on my shoes, and I’ve been really impressed with how perfect these still are after all the wear!  They only come in whole sizes, so most people size up.  If you’re in between sizes, I would definitely recommend going up to the next size.

Top: Cupcakes & Cashmere | Earrings: BaubleBar | Sunnies: Prada | Belt: Gucci; similar here | Lipgloss: Smashbox ‘Disco Rose’ | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Denim: Frame | Heels: Steve Madden | Bag: Chanel; get a similar look here (obsessed!) and here

I love an easy, pulled together summer look that’s simple and chic!  This top is cool enough for the summer and instantly makes the whole outfit pop without much effort.  The colors are bright and fun, and of course I love my pop of turquoise.  I got this Anastasia Lip Gloss a couple of months back and love the color so much!  It is more of a hot pink, but can look more red when you need it to.  It’s the perfect in between shade and wears really well!  Lastly, my earrings are so fun!!  They can be worn more casually, and I love the beaded detail.  I could even see them worn more beachy with a white cotton dress.  Just an idea!

Fit Tips: The top, jeans and heels all run TTS.  However, I would size up a half size if you’re in between sizes in shoes.  Thank you so much for reading and Happy Sunday girls!  xoxo, Christian

Packing Tutorial: All of my tips and tricks on how to stay organized + what I’m taking to Vegas!

adidas louis vuitton topshop ultra boost

I’ve been soooo excited about this girl’s trip for about 2 months now!  There are 6 of us headed out to Vegas for the trip of a lifetime, and I’m beyond thrilled to be a part of it.  Y’all I could seriously scream!!  The main reason we’re going is to for the J Lo concert, but other than that, we are really looking forward to relaxing by the pool and just having a blast being spontaneous!  I know packing can be overwhelming to most people, so I want to give you all of my tips and tricks on how I stay organized when packing,  how to know what to pack, and how to keep your items in the best condition possible.  I also want to share all of my outfits that I’m bringing along, in case you have an upcoming girls trip and want some outfit inspo!

Here are the rest of the key pieces I brought for the trip!  Click on the images below to shop:

The first thing I do when I’m about to leave for a trip is make a list.  I still am one of those people that likes to write everything down.  I list all of my essentials that I use day to day that are necessary.  I also make sure I have travel size containers for my skincare or have samples on hand so I don’t have to pack large bottles.   I keep these ready to go in a makeup kit, so that all I have to do is check it to make sure nothing needs to be refilled, zip it and go.

The cutest bell sleeve jacket under $100!

chanel bag steve madden heel

Jacket: Topshop | Shorts: Cupcakes and Cashmere; similar here and here | Belt: Gucci | Bracelets: Vita Fede & David Yurman | Bag: Chanel; get the look for less here (dying for this bag next) and here | Top: Lush (only $35!) | Heels: Steve Madden  | Sunnies: Prada

This jacket is a must have for everyone!  It comes in 4 colors, just in case pink isn’t your thing, but I highly recommend it and would love it in all the colors!  I wore it last week to work and swapped out the shorts for a pair of lighter wash ripped denim and paired it back to my metallic rose gold loafers.  It was adorable, and people stopped me all day asking about my jacket.  You could also pair it back to black pants or a black pencil skirt for work.  It looks so designer for such an affordable price!  The jacket runs TTS, and I know most Topshop pieces run small, but this one is more true to size for sure.  My Gucci belt is a total new obsession–I’ve seriously wanted to wear it every day since I got it.  Ha!  The sizing is a little tricky on them, but just for reference I got a size 75 and wear a 24 in jeans.  I hope that’s helpful.

My Top 5 Summer Staples: Embroidery, High Waisted Denim & Loafers to name a few!

embroidery topshop jamie metallic loafers

Top: Rails | Denim: Topshop | Earrings: Lana | Bag: Valentino; similar here (die for this one!); look for less here for under $100  | Loafers: Louise Et Cie; sold out but dying for these!; similar here (love!) | Necklace: Dana Rebecca (staple and great for layering!)  | Lips: Smashbox ‘Pink Drank’

  1. Embroidery!  Can I please tell you how obsessed I am with this top?!  If you live in a warmer climate like me, this top is SO perfect for summer time!  The humidity and heat have definitely set in down here and it’s warming up by the minute.  I walked around Tampa in this top last week during the day, and honestly felt like I had nothing on ha!  It’s loose enough, cool and comfortable, and would also be super cute with high waisted cut offs.  It’s definitely short though, so high waisted bottoms are a must!  If you want a more classic spin on the embroidery trend, this one is fabulous!  I just ordered it and can’t wait to wear it with white or blush denim.  The loafers I linked would also be perfect with it!  This top runs TTS.
  2. My denim are also a new fav.  I love the wash and the rips are in just the right spots.  Also, perfect for the summer!  The new high waisted denim is super flattering and really holds you in nicely!  I love the stretch and control in these, and the best part is that they come in 2 lengths.  I always order the 30 length bc I’m 5’2″ and also bc I like them on the shorter side.  These jeans run small (I size up 2 sizes in them)
  3. If you don’t have a pair of loafers, you must get a pair this season!  I linked a few of my favorites for you.  I own the Gucci’s I linked in black and wear them all.the.time!  I seriously want them in every color.  This blush pair are adorable!!  If you want the look for less, these Sam Edelman’s are too cute, and I love the tassel detail!  They’re a great price and super comfy.
  4. My little star necklace is just enough worn on its own, but I love to layer it.  Since it’s rose gold and has little diamonds, it has a 2 tone look and looks great layered with any metals.  I wear it with rose, silver and gold, and honestly never take it off!
  5. Studs & spikes are my last go to items for the summer.  Whether it’s in a bag, bracelet, earring, belt, or buttons or on shoes, definitely incorporate some of this into your look this season.  You can’t go wrong and layering is key!

One Shoulder Faux Wrap Dress: Flattering on Any Body Type!

day dress one shoulder leopard clutch

Dress: Trouvé (under $90!) | Shoes: Steve Madden | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Clutch: Clare V; get the look for less here for under $50 | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Necklace: Dana Rebecca (wear this all the time) | Lipstick: Tom Ford ‘So Vain’ (new fav!)

Right when I saw this dress, I knew it would be soooo flattering!  Wrap dresses don’t ever work that well on me and usually end up gaping open in the boobs, but I love the idea of them because they’re a flattering style.  This one has the perfect amount of ruching and the tie helps carve out a waist even if that’s not your best area.  I saw it on 3 different people last week, and it looked so amazing on everyone!  The fabric is super comfy and not too clingy for these upcoming hot summer months.  It fits very true to size.  The reviews online said that it was tight and short, but I didn’t think so.  The XS would fit a 0-2, small 4-6, medium 8-10, large 12.
