Who’s excited for the Fourth of July next week? I’m still trying to figure out my plans, but as long as they involve a BBQ/potluck of some sort, I’ll be good. I’m most excited about having an extra day off work- I need a break! I love dressing to theme for any holiday, so today I thought it would be fun to pull together some patriotic pieces. You can go full red, white and blue with your outfit, or you could keep it subtle with just an Americana accessory. The best part? Most of these items are under $50 and everything is under $60!
Tell me: What do you have planned for the Fourth?
(starting at the top: Striped Ponte Dress, Straw Boater, Stars Print Midriff Shirt, Brass Star Earrings, Stripe Leather Pouch [30% off with code HISUMMER], Stars & Stripes Scarf, Classic Stripe Tee, Simple Tote in Flag Stripe, Star Muscle Tank, Vintage Cotton Tee in Stars [30% off with code HISUMMER], Americana Slip-On Sneaker, Pleated Stripe Short, Sailor Sweater in Stripe, Striped Sequin Dress, Pleated Star Chambray Skirt, American Flag Phone Case, Americana Earring Set)
This is not the first time you’ve heard me say it- the streets of New York are downright mean to shoes. I’ve given up on the idea of wearing any shoe with a substantial heel regularly, which means that I need to stock my closet with a couple pairs of chic, flat shoes that will get me through fall and winter. I’ve been leaning towards purchasing a pair of chelsea boots because I think it’s a style that I can wear with anything. Want some proof? Take a look at the inspiration looks that I pulled below!
Tell me: Do you have a pair of chelsea boots? Which one above is your favorite?

I’m currently searching for the perfect ankle boots for fall, which is no easy task. I have a few conditions: they have to be affordable, comfortable (since I walk to and from work), durable (the streets of NYC are not particularly kind to shoes), and versatile. See what I mean? Not so easy! These are a few options that I like so far and I hoping to make it in to the store later this week to try some of these on.
Tell me: What type(s) of shoes are on your fall wish list?
