Shout-out to my girl Kelly Clarkson for this blog post title. Here’s a brief, and very very delayed, look at what I wore during my Fourth of July festivities. I love to keep things festive and dress in my very best red white and blue. I adore the United States shaped necklace I wore. At school I’m an American studies major and I wear this necklace when I have tests or papers due for good luck.
On my family’s recent trip to England, I discovered (and fell in love with) the clothing brand Reiss. This party dress was one of the purchases I made from the brand and I absolutely love it! The detailing on the bust evokes Art Deco styles and the color is just so fun! I took these photos with my brother while at our hotel in Bath. It was a lot of fun joking around and working on the blog together!

I love this simple dress from Anthropologie. My mother gave it to me for my birthday in April and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. It’s perfect for summer because it has enough detail to be worn on its own, but it is also very easily paired with accessories for a more formal look. What are some summer dresses you’ve been loving?
In case you haven’t yet gathered this from my blog, I love any reason to celebrate and be festive! The Fourth of July is no exception! You can always catch me in fully red, white and blue ensemble celebrating my country’s independence at a parade or watching fireworks! For this Fourth of July, I really put attention on my fun pleated skirt and tried to keep the rest of my outfit a little more neutral. Of course I complimented the outfit with some red, white and blue accessories! What did you wear this past Independence Day?

Oxblood was one of my favorite trends this winter. I loved this skirt and have featured it in past blog posts. For a day out in Chicago, I bundled up in layers and wore this skirt with a chambray shirt. I love combining chambray with skirts and more feminine pieces. For me it keeps the menswear trend more girlie and polished. What were some of your favorite winter trends?

With the end of winter approaching, I have been trying to wear my favorite pieces from the season as often as possible. I loved this skirt’s plaid pattern. I also love the pleating it has and the flared bottom. It is definitely a piece that I will miss once spring comes, until then I’ll be wearing it as often as possible!
The Webster Miami has been added this year as one of the “Shops” at Target. The Webster at Target combines the brand’s fun prints and easy style with an affordable price. The collection is full of bright colors and flattering lines perfect for summer. I purchased two shirts there a few months ago. One shirt (the first pictured) has held up well and has proved itself to be good quality for the low price. However, the second shirt (the white one pictured bellow) has not held up as well as I would have hoped. It remains a toss-up about the quality of the line. I have enjoyed both my purchased of the line and would recommend that any fashionista buy a piece from the collection for their Summer 2012 wardrobe.
