Like most fashion-inclined (obsessed) people, finding the perfect outfit for every event is important. And “the perfect outfit” doesn’t mean fancy or dressed up by any means. My casual, just-rolled-out-of-bed look took me at least a half hour and I probably already had an outfit picked out. Are you going to be drinking beer on a boat all day? Will you be at a BBQ? Late night party poolside? All of these situations call for different outfits. Ergo-this post. I hope you grab some inspiration from these 4 outfits for your own 4th of July festivities!

I had the pleasure of meeting Kilee Nickels, owner and designer of Nickel and Suede,  last week. What a talented gal. She and her husband just recently started Nickel and Suede, leather jewelry for women. If you have talked to me at all in the past week you’ve seen me sporting something of theirs and gushing about how much I love it. Support some talented people and get over to Nickel and Suede. (And that price you see, is real.)

Also, go buy this dress from target immediately.

A Few Things…



1. Banana Bread Granola
My whole place smelled like banana bread. It’s like eating banana bread without the guilt (or as much guilt?) depends if your anything like me and eat the whole batch in one sitting. I cut it in half ok?

2. Cookie Butter
I’m shocked at the amount of people who still don’t know about this. Trader Joes created this masterpiece. I don’t remember who told me about it but I hate you. If you (in any way) like the little Biscoff cookies Delta Airlines gives out, don’t ever buy this. I’m saving you. I’m saving you from the long life you have ahead of being terrified to go down the dreaded cookie butter isle in Trader Joes. It’s THAT good. It’s pureed cookie. It goes on anything…. including just a spoon.

3. Poppy and Olives
Poppy and Olives is a vintage rental shop. Whether its your wedding, grad-party, photoshoot, anything! They have the most adorable accessories and furniture to set it apart. I’m kind of obsessed :)

4. Standing Height Desk
I’m loving this (fairly) simple tutorial on how to build your own standing height desk! I love standing while I work and since I cant do it at work I think this is great for home!

5. Pointed Toe Trend
This is vague but I’ve been going shoe crazy. I had to share some of my favorites for spring. The D’Orsay trend is in full swing and these are my personal faves: This striped pair, this leopard pair, and this coral pair. Some of my other favorite pointy flats are this pair and this pair.  And last but not least, heels. I go for a lower heel because I’m more of a comfort gal. These and these are currently in my cart. Someone stop me.
