My dears, can you believe Fourth of July weekend is already upon us? I’m at once excited (and in need of a mini-vacay) and overwhelmed (how is it already July?!). Do you have plans? Will you be going away, hosting or attending a barbeque, or hitting the beach? I’d love to know… I’ll be enjoying some family time with my little cherub (a.k.a. my niece) who is about to enter the fantastic fives. Cue the tears (mine, natch).

I’ll see you back here after the long weekend on Tuesday for some style inspiration, party and photo shoot pics, and even a fun surprise or two! Until then, I wish you fireworks in your future, an abundance of sunshine, and unlimited ice cream cake! Here are this week’s highlights:

 

VERANDA UnVEILS: The House of Windsor
Style Crush: Olesya’s Mexican Dress
Do You Stink? There’s an App (With Free Prizes) for That!
Cheap Tricks: Under $5 Statement Earrings

 

 

 

Stay independent!
