Wishing You a Very Beach-y Fourth of July!


This year, I decided to do a bit of a different red, white and blue combination than my usual white tee/red lip look. I pretty much switched it up because of my recent obsession with nude lipstick, particularly those from ColourPop.

Instead of a white tee, I swapped in my fave black low-arm tank from Negative to show off my new bathing suit! I tucked the tank into a pair of high-waisted jean shortsto keep with the beach-y vibe (...they're very short).

Hair: There will be posts/videos about the new locks, but this is your sneak peek!
Shorts: Urban Outfitters
Nails: DIY! (This is pretty much the only pattern I can do...)
Shoes (not shown): Converse

For white and blue, I wore my gingham flannel (and really wanted to title this post "gingham near Hingham, but refrained). I love summer layers when the sun starts going down and the night-time chill sets in! The flannel didn't end up being enough- I stole my dad's Vineyard Vines pullover for the drive home!

I brought some red into the look with these new sunnies from Polette (which I won in a giveaway by the lovely Mariah from Rya Pie)! Mirrored lenses have been huge lately, and the shape of the "California" shades is so unique that I've been doubly obsessed. 

My dad and I drove out to the Scituate lighthouse to take these pics! It was such a beautiful day, but the SUPER bright lights did some funny things to many of the pics. I did my best to minimize the effect, but that's why there aren't any full-body pics (in case you were wondering!).

What did you wear (ooh or eat? or wear to go eat?) for the Fourth? Hope you're having a lovely holiday weekend!
