Happy Fourth of July! I hope you’re able to enjoy some sun, some good food and good company today!
We’ll be heading over to hang out with my parents with our little fox-dog in tow. My parents have a habit of looking forward to these sorts of holidays so that they can splurge on hot dogs and other bad-for-you foods. I hope one day I have half as much discipline about eating healthy as they do.
Since I missed out on posting an outfit last week, I thought I’d share two. A dressy red, white, and blue anchor print dress that I absolutely am obsessing over, and a fun tie-dye maxi.
What I’m Wearing – Outfit #1
Dress: c/o StyleGather
Shoes: Lady Pump by SJP
While I love the dressed up look, the casual look is definitely more my style for a BBQ over at my parent’s. Plenty of room to grow in, if you get my drift. ;)
You guys are probably so bored with seeing my Birkenstocks. I’m sorry, but not only do they go with all of the things, they are also so comfortable. Maybe I should just get another pair to diversify. Ha.
What I’m Wearing – Outfit #2
Dress: c/o StyleGather
Denim Top: Sanctuary
Sandals: Birkenstock Mayari
Both of these lovely dresses are from the nice people over at StyleGather, who just launched a collaboration with OpenSky and Sears this week! They seriously have the cutest stuff.
What are you up to for the 4th of July? Happy Friday!
I’m nailing down some last minute wedding details and taking advantage of the 4th of July sales :)
Sounds like a good plan, did you get anything good? Thanks for entering, Kelly!
For 4th of July we are going to go in town and watch the fireworks since there is a ban of fireworks on base .
Sounds like fun! Thanks for entering, Ashley! :)
I like both outfits, but you’re right…the 2nd one is much more ideal for 4th of July festivities! Enjoy your BBQ today. :)
Haha yep, and its totally what I wore. Maxis are the best when there is eating involved. Hope you had a good 4th, Lisa!
Hi! For the 4th I’m heading out to my apartments’ pool for a few hours & going to the fireworks tonight with a friend. (If it doesn’t rain.) Nice and relaxing! Thank-you for this fun giveaway!
sounds like a fun day! thanks for entering, Natalie!
We’re grilling food and then taking our daughter to see fireworks over the river.

Sadly, I’m hanging out by myself this 4th. I took myself out to lunch, had a root beer float, and did some shopping. Lovely … but a little lonely.
Aw, it sounds like you made the best of it though! Love root beer floats! :)
I am watching fireworks & reading.
Sounds like a perfect evening to me! Good luck, KV!
Those pumps are perfect with the anchor dress!
I’m at home with The Wolfman, Netflix, and a giant bowl of gelato!
Thanks, Kristan! :) Hope you had a good 4th!
I’m in Australia but I did 2 4th July things yesterday for some reason :P basically just eating our impression of American food and having a few drinks :)

Thanks, Dimitra! Birkenstocks have been my go-tos this summer! :)
Omg I absolutely love that dress!
Thanks, Katreena! :)
Aw, hope you had fun with the pup! :)
I’m a little obsessed with those shoes.
Haha, thanks Becca! :)
We went to my sister’s in the morning so our kids could play together and had lunch there, came home for nap time, then went over to my parents’ house where we had dinner and did a TON of fireworks. I managed to wake up without a hangover, but with a few bug bites and a light sunburn on my shoulders. It was totally worth it.
Sounds like a fun day! Thanks for entering, Breenah!
These outfits are so cute! I love those red pumps and the maxi skirt!

I spent a quiet day at home. It wasn’t my original plan but it is what I did. Thanks
Good luck, Christy!
I love that anchor dress. So adorable! I might ask again, open for international readers? xo
Thanks, Abby! Sorry, this one is US-only, as well. I hope to offer international giveaways in the future, but a lot of small businesses aren’t set up to ship internationally. Thanks so much for your interest!
We spent a quiet day at home by the pool. It was so very hot that a tall, icy cocktail was the order of the day for us.
Sounds like a great way to celebrate, Barbara!

I spent the 4th of July getting engaged! :) The first thing I thought when I saw this amazing anchor dress is that it would be perfect for engagement photos, especially because my outfit had anchors on it during the engagement!
