Can you believe the Fourth of July is already upon us? I, for one, am super excited for it to be here because I’m running in my very first 10K! Just pretend like I’ve been training… it’ll be fine, right? Anyways, the 4th brings one of the best times to really go all out with your outfit, decor and accessories. Even your pet needs a little festive flair. I picked up this dog collar from PawPaws in Greenville, SC and had the best time talking to the owner. All of her collars and dog accessories are handmade in her studio above the store and she’s so inspiring! Go check out her adorable designs here.
Let’s be real, champagne + anything (most notably OJ) is just the right way to celebrate America’s birthday. Brunch, mimosa. Lunch, peach bellini. Dinner, pop the champagne with the bottle rockets! This KTees tank is made to order, so go order today to get your tank by the 4th! Don’t like champagne? Replace it with vodka! (I mean on the tank. Or in your drink. I don’t judge.) Thanks KTees for sending me this tee!
My favorite thing to wear on the 4th and Memorial Day – my hand-painted patriotic TOMS! You can do this yourself! Make it a DIY Independence Day. Just paint a navy pair of TOMS with stars and stripes and you’ve got your conversation starter right on your feet. Trust me, I get so many compliments on these at least 2 days out of each year.
I knew as soon as I saw this embroidered kimono on a buying trip for Boho Bus that I just had to have it. I had a really hard time deciding whether or not to keep the white one or the green one for myself, but alas, white it was this time. I can’t wait to wear it all summer and into the fall. Don’t you love stylish pieces that can be worn all year?
I can imagine it with flares and skinnies in the fall, but I just had to wear it with these cutoffs (less than $20!) to keep it cool in the summer heat. It was the perfect outfit to wear to the local pizza place for some pie+beer in Greenwood, SC.
I like to use my birth month as a natural excuse to be obsessed with diamonds. I’m very lucky to have diamonds as my birthstone afterall! Although I haven’t quite reaped the benefits of it yet, I’m hoping to have a few stones pass my way within my lifetime. 😉 Luckily, I was invited to D. Geller and Son for their #BlingforBloggers event to check out some of the latest Tacori jewels, my favorite!
I will say, the big diamond engagement rings were the number one spot on my tour of the store. Even if I did have one of my own, I’d still want to play around with those. There’s just something so magical and romantic about a shiny, clean diamond with a perfect glittery band. *Sighing for dramatic relief.* I think Tacori makes some of the most beautiful engagement rings and bands, and you might have seen this post on Instagram of a ring of all of us ladies’ dreams:

But D. Geller and Son doesn’t just have engagement rings. They have fine jewelry for everyone and any occasion. The all new Sonoma Mist collection features the daintiest little jewels in beautifully updated metals like rose gold and yellow gold. From the bangles to the earrings and the stackable rings in between, this collection is gorgeous! It really reminds me of the beach – round baubles and pave diamonds make the delicate pieces so beautiful.
Besides the excellent array of jewelry, I can not say enough great things about the amazing staff at the Smyrna D. Geller and Son location. Every single employee I spoke to (and I spoke to a lot), was helpful, friendly, fun and so, so nice. I really felt like they all had become my best friend by the end of the night, and no not just because I wanted to take home that beauty of an engagement ring for myself. If any of you (or your boyfriends) are considering popping the question or just want to purchase a piece of fine jewelry, I cannot recommend these ladies (and gentleman) enough!
