Star Spangled Style + A Summer Give-Away

Happy Tuesday, friends!  It's a Holiday week, with July Fourth just a few days away. I'm sure your schedules are full of Cook-Outs, Fireworks, and maybe even a little fun in the water (they have to be if you live in Texas). With that in mind, I thought it might be fun to team up with the lovely SunKissed Tangles and share a few holiday inspired looks...along with a fabulous summer jewels give-away!



I always loved the Fourth growing up. The way our country comes together to share the joy and appreciation we have for our freedom always makes me feel so warmed.  I love to see the focus shift away from the everyday politics to the real reason we have brothers and sisters fighting for us every day.  I love the way flags begin to appear in yards, families and friends come together to celebrate over food, and how the fireworks light up the hot sky to show the power that is this nation. It is such a great thing we get to share.
   
Ms. Christiana also shares my love for the red, white, and blue.  I asked her to share her favorite July 4th memory, and this is what she said...

"My favorite 4th of July memory is literally every year! The 4th is one of my very favorite holidays and I love the family time that comes with it! We usually stake out a place for the fireworks around 2 or 3 in the afternoon and hang out on a blanket until the fireworks start. The anticipation and time spent playing cards and talking are such sweet memories for me. When "Proud to be an American" comes on and we are all sitting there on the blanket watching the beautiful firework show- I can't help but feel so thankful for our amazing country and the men who sacrifice so much to protect it! Thank God for our military!"

To help with your celebrations we've put together two looks, perfect for a Bar-B-Q Cook-Out or a night watching fireworks.
Shoes: Forever 21| Shorts- Gap | Top: Old Navy | Earrings: Present 
from my mom (who loves any and every holiday ;)| Hat- Mexico

Dress: Forever 21 | Shoes: Target | Purse: Francescas | Bangle: OLD | 
Watch: Michael Kors | Sunnies (Ray Ban)

To celebrate our freedom, we are bringing y'all a summer giveaway!  Don't miss out on these great pieces!
