Happy Thursday, friends! The long holiday weekend is within reach now! I know it’s not even July yet, and you all are probably going to hate reading this, but I have already started to plan my fall wardrobe. Fall is by far my favorite season and by the time July rolls around, I am tired of the heat and humidity and ready for the cooler, fall temperatures. Of course, I do love fall clothes, too!

Red Hot July

Summer Red Outfit Inspiration @rachmccarthy7

Maybe it’s because the Fourth of July is next week, but I have been all about red lately. It’s a color that I like to wear, but don’t have a ton of it in my closet. Summer is the perfect time to break out this bright hue {or even add it to your closet!} especially with Fourth less than a week away!

American Flag Icebox Cake

American Flag Icebox Cake @rachmccarthy7

 

Happy Tuesday! Continuing the Fourth of July themed posts today with an easy, make-ahead dessert that’s perfectly patriotic. I’ve wanted to try my hand at icebox cakes for sometime now and thought that the mixture of berries and cream would make for a delicious summer treat. And with the added flag design out of berries on the top, it will make for a delicious way to end your Fourth of July celebrations next week.

I Love My Dog

I Love My Dog Sweatshirt

Happy almost Friday, friends! Graphic shirts have been all the rage but I really haven’t jumped on this “trend train” until recently. My first real graphic tee was this blonde tee that I shared in this post a few months ago. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of plastering brand names and logos all over my clothing and accessories and I think that is probably why in the past I have shied away from this trend. But, when a saying has a special meaning to me or is completely and totally relatable, I wear it loud and proud! Needless to say this particular sweatshirt couldn’t be more perfect.

Top Summer Must-Haves Under $50

Top summer must-haves under $50 @rachmccarthy7
 
Happy Summer, friends! With the first official day of summer, I wanted to kick off the new season with a round-up of my top summer must-haves under $50! These are a few fun and trendy, yet staple pieces that you will be able to wear all summer long.
WHITE OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS ($29.99): A little white dress (LWD) is a closet essential each summer. But, since the off the shoulder style is so trendy this summer, you can kill two birds with one stone in this dress. And the best part: white dresses are super easy to style by changing out accessories. You can make it look like a different dress each time you wear it!

FLOPPY STRAW HAT ($29): Whether you have summer vacation plans or just spending time at the pool this summer, wordplay straw hats are all the rage! Straw hats are my go-to when I’m sitting by the pool. This hat will not only keep the sun off your face but will have you feeling oh so stylish, too!

TASSEL DROP EARRINGS ($38): It’s no secret I love a good statement earring. Typically, I’m partial to fringe so when I saw these tassel drop earrings in the beautiful shades of blue, I knew I had to share it with you. Tassel earrings are the perfect summer accessory and instantly add a layer of fun to your look. How cute would they look with THIS white off the shoulder dress?!

KNOTTED FLIP FLOPS & GOLD JELLY FLIP FLOPS (both $49.95): I live in flip flops during the summer {when I’m not at work} so I couldn’t help but share two styles for summer. I saw THESE knotted flip flops a few weeks ago and they are selling fast! They are such a fun twist on the standard flip flop, it’s no wonder they are from one of my favorite shoe designers! As for the jelly flip flops, I already have these in two colors {black and ivory} and I’m considering purchasing another. Perfect for a day by the pool, I even wear them around the house or when I’m running errands. I highly recommend these!
 
MORE SANDALS UNDER $50
 
 
SWING CAMI ($25): This might just be the top item on my wish list for summer! We have been having some seriously warm temperatures already and I’ve been searching for cool tops. This cami comes in 15 colors {neutrals and brights!}, is priced at $25 and would be easy to wear by itself with shorts or jeans or under a sweater or jacket on cooler days. This is definitely a closet must-have!

COLD SHOULDER GINGHAM DRESS ($39.99): Gingham has always been one of my favorite patterns for spring and summer {last summer’s gingham dress HERE} and I love the added cold shoulder style on this one. Dress it up with sandals for date night or down with sneakers for a BBQ. This is one sundress you need for summer!

WHITE DENIM SKIRT ($34.99): I have been searching for a white denim skirt since the beginning of spring and have yet to find one I loved. That is until I spotted this one earlier this week! You can’t beat this price point, either. Pair this skirt with the swing cami from above or any other top for a cute summer outfit.

ANGULAR AVIATOR SUNGLASSES ($12): I always love finding cute, trendy sunglasses and when I spotted these for only $12, I knew I had to include them in today’s post. I love the designer look-alike style and of course the rose gold color. This updated aviator style is a fun shape to wear all summer long!

Floral Cold Shoulder(ish)

floral ruffle top

 This floral top has been on serious repeat this spring and summer. You may remember when I styled it HERE with a navy blazer during the cooler months and now it’s been my go-to top to wear with white jeans. I wore this top while in California and actually skipped the cold shoulder feature. But when I wore it this past weekend, I styled it as it was intended, with the cold shoulder!Read More
