Summer Hostess Gifts.

With all this summer travel comes one of my favorite things… selecting the perfect hostess gift! I love giving gifts. There’s something so exciting about finding the perfect present for someone special… something that they will really love and use. Today I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite (bright + cheery) summer hostess gifts.

Fall Wardrobe Updates + HUGE SALE!

Fourth of July Style.

This is kinda weird, but the fourth of July is one of my favorite occasions to get dressed for. Stripes are (obviously) my favorite, but I’ve also always had a thing for stars, too. And at least 75% of my wardrobe is either red, white, or blue, so there’s that.
