If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on a little hiatus. You know how it is, life takes over and it’s  hard to fit in time for your favorite hobbies. A crazy work schedule has kept me busy but now that summer is here I have lots of fun stuff planned. My struggle is always trying to find my balance between work and blogging fun. I thought a perfect time to bring my blog up to date was July 4th. I’d been putting off posting and then I had a few people ask when I was posting again. Oh, the pressure! So I finally stopped procrastinating and I dressed up Rockie (which he absolutely dislikes) and found some time with my hubby “the  photographer”  to snap some quick pics.

How perfect is this Madewell denim romper for a BBQ and 4th of July festivities . I decided to pair it with my leopard Vans for a casual walk with Rockie. To stick with the ‘Merica theme I’m carrying my favorite Red Marc Jacobs tote  and you can’t forget the mini flags.  To elevate this look  for date night I would wear wedges and a crossbody handbag and some color popping jewelry. I feel you can mix many different colors with denim but I love Red and denim.

Now Rockie is sporting a red, white and blue scarf from the Target $1 bins. You know the area that you can’t pass by when you first walk in. When you have a need for nothing in the area but you have to purchase a ridiculous amount $1 items. Or is that just me?

What is your go to 4th of July outfit?

I’m wishing everyone a Happy & Safe 4th of July!

‘Merica

Anyone that knows me knows that I have an obsession with denim shirts. I have a section in my closet with several shirts all denim but different fits, weights and light to dark in color. I feel a denim shirt goes with everything,  and I mean everything! If you ask any of my coworkers they’ll  say I wear a denim shirt at least once a week, okay maybe twice. The thing with denim shirts is you can dress it up and dress it down. I chose to dress it up here with a striped statement skirt and patent leather red pumps. MEOW! The red pumps are super sexy and add a pop of color to any outfit, they’re my go to date night shoes. I love this outfit because you can wear to work and right out to happy hour after. If you don’t feel comfortable with bright red pumps at work then I would change the shoe to a black wedge or simple black pump. But don’t you think it’s fun to step out of you comfort zone?
