Everything and Apple Pie

Happy July, ladies - I hope you all had a fantastic past couple of days! It was a casual but fun Independence Day long weekend for me, I went up north to visit some family and friends. There were loads of grilled goodies, fuzzy animals, much laughing, my first home fireworks and unfortunately a whole lotta rain. Plus copious over-use of Off! kept the mosquitoes at bay.

How were your weekends?

the 4th
First time we bought some fireworks for at-home blowing up. I played Fire Marshall Lisa and doled out sparklers, lit bottle rockets and reminded people about fireworks safety - i.e., light it and run!

Fun was had by all with only minor shrapnel damage. Afterwards I wish we had bought more!

  8. You always finds THE best stuff at Forever 21! Great shirt. Love it with the pink! We celebrated our son's 5th bday and a good ol 4th celebration with family, food and at-home fireworks that was slightly scary at times! (pyro husbands and uncles combined. We all moved back 10 yds)

  20. What a fun take on the denim shirt! Looks like you had a great 4th! Growing up in Hawaii - it was like war zone around 4th of July & New Years. There's so much smoke that you can't see a thing. I miss those days!

    1. The neighbors of a friend of mine did their fireworks on the 5th - guess they took advantage of all the fireworks stores 50% off sales!

  34. Very very cute! I actually thought the top was J Crew. Glad you had a great 4th of July!

  35. I loooove this shirt! It's so unique, don't think I've ever seen chambray done like like that before. I didn't have any fireworks this year... maybe it's not too late to get some sparklers? Actually, I don't even know if those are legal in the city... yeah. Maybe not!

  38. Love your outfit. As I have said on your post with the striped shorts: you rock this look. Bag, shoes, blouse... they go so well with the shorts. This outfit also gets a 10 from me. (As if you would care..haha, but still.)
