4th of July Outfit Idea


4th of July Outfit Idea

The 4th of July is around the corner and what better time to pull out my favorite blue and white stripe skirt. Earlier this Spring, Tuckernuck launched their own collection and I have been wearing this skirt on repeat since May! It pairs perfectly with a basic white tee, a wide stripe shirt, or a crop sweater for chillier days. Add a few red accessories and you are all set for the holiday (without screaming firework!) I love the idea of mixing prints, florals and stripes so your outfit doesn’t scream flag swimsuit from Old Navy circa 2000. lol.

The crisp Fall air, roaring crowds and great food.

There is nothing I love more than the beginning of Fall and start of football season.  I like to think I have become somewhat of a pro when it comes to hosting a tailgate since my husband played for the Jayhawks back in the day. After spending five seasons cheering on KU, I have perfected my tailgate food, fun and fashion.  Read more for my best tips for hosting a tailgate with Draper James.

Because we cancelled our trip this past weekend, it meant we had an entire weekend that was plan-free.  So on Saturday, we ventured out for a little shopping trip and picked up some tulips to freshen things up at the house. One of my favorite winter outfits is to layer vests under a jacket. Even after living in the Midwest for 8 years, I am still a complete wimp when it comes to the cold.

There is something you need to know about me, I am kind of A-Type.  Especially when it comes to my house.  I get totally embarrassed when someone stops by and I see old mail on the kitchen table or a glass in the sink. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a clean freak, but I like to have everything in its place. I mean I even make my bed the second I wake up in the morning, pillows and all (I guess my mom taught me well, I was always told I had to make my bed before we could leave the house).  The reason I am telling this story is because I normally wouldn’t show you this instagram above because the blanket on the sofa is not folded and two because there is still plastic on the floor from the box. But I decided to suck it up for the sake of showing you our new coffee table, in all of its clear beauty.  There are two things I love about coffee tables, one because I can finally set my drink down when watching tv (I know, I am lazy) and two so that I can finally add some color and accessories to my neutral living room. Since the table is clear, there is a definite need for some large books to fill the space, and of course some good smelling candles.  I also found these darling accessories on this new-to-me online shop called Waiting on Martha, the shop has some darn cute things and to make it even better at reasonable prices.
