Fourth of July x Legally Blonde and Brunette
fourthofjulythestylesaucejpg1

Happy Summer!!!! I'm super excited about the next few posts which are going to be dedicated entirely to Fourth of July fashion. I've teamed up with a great friend of mine, Shelley Buckner of Legally Blonde and Brunette .

Basically this shoot was no fun at all ;). The whole idea was to actually reenact what an epic 4th of July would be like- from drinking Moet on a sailboat to playing with fireworks on the beach! For clothes we (obviously) kept to a red, white, and blue theme and wanted it to be actual looks we would wear while lounging on a boat, playing on a dock, or going to a BBQ. While I live on the beach, 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays and is always the welcoming of Summer. We had a really good time shooting this and putting tons of fun patriotic looks together for you. I hope my 4th of July is ACTUALLY as fun as this shoot was! Thanks Shelley for being a part of it and can't wait to share the rest of the looks from Part 2 with you tomorrow! 

How will you all be celebrating America's birthday? Leave a comment and let me know!

Don't Panic! Sweater- Marc by Marc Jacobs

Lately there is nothing more I love than a culotte. Even in my post last week for Festival Fashion I was wearing culotte shorts. I mean it's gotten a little out of hand. There's just something so versatile about culottes and I love how they can be dressed up or dressed down and worn for cooler weather or warm weather. For this look I chose black which is obviously the most flattering. I also do love the white and pastel color culottes I've been seeing, although they are definitely harder to pull off- especially for someone who is on the shorter side. I am pretty tall but chose to wear a high platform with these because it gives the pant an extra oomph. I would recommend doing the same for all my shorter sisters out there. There are many different types of shoes that look good with culottes, but in general anything with a platform or with a stacked heel will go great with a pant like this. 

For the rest of the look-- I paired a Marc by Marc Jacobs lunchbox-shaped red crossbody for a pop of color and a little funk (it's holographic!). I have my old favorite Rayban clubmasters on that always seem to make their way back into my sunglass rotation. The cropped sweater that says Don't Panic! is from Marc by Marc Jacobs as well. I love it- everyone just chill out and enjoy this little OOTD ;)

Below is my "Don't Panic" playlist for some good vibes. Rationale- Fast Lane is my absolute favorite song of the week. By popular demand -- I'm going to incorporate music in all my posts now :) You guys can follow my music updates and playlists on Spotify (playlist on main page) and Soundcloud.

Ice Cream

Lately I've been so sick of black. So, today's post is all about the candy colors that have been big for fall this year. I'm wearing one of my favorite unexpected color combinations: pinks and burgundies. There is something so fresh about wearing all color! I paired a burgundy overcoat to tie in my mules, while I kept my sweater and ballerina mini super pale pink and purple. There's just something about such a light and fluffy color palette that makes me smile. I chose to keep my legs bare as we can in California, but for those of you in colder climates a pair of tights would also work well to stay warm.

Also making an appearance in this post is my 2 year old Coton De Tulear, Ladybug, because to me there is nothing more adorable and fluffy than her face. What do we do when it gets cold in Venice Beach? Well, we eat ice cream of course! Ladybug even got a lick ;) Enjoy the look!
