4th of JULY FABULOUS: Food, Fashion & Family!!

Family, Food and Fashion, to me that is what 4th of July is all about and in that order...oh and add the 4th "F"...Fireworks and you've got memories in the making. I decided to incorporate all of these for Andrea and Erika's Let's Talk Series
This whole week I will be showcasing 4th of July related Posts...soooo Excited!!

The above college includes all the fun things I'd be wearing for the 4th of July. I'm excited to have added a few cute 4th of July fashions to my wardrobe for the upcoming Holiday week including a darling American Flag kimono, which I will show you soon

This outfit from from My Nautical Themed Mother's Day shoot with my mama and both would be the perfect 4th outfits.
This outfit I posted for Cookout Couture a couple weeks ago would be perfect too.

I also ordered this lightweight flag sweater from Hollister HERE and let's just say I am obsessed with how cute it is, I tried it on as soon s it arrived and been admiring it ever since.

I'll be back on Wednesday with some more Americana/4th Fashion goodness.
Sneak Peak.......

Ahhh, the foods of Summer and the goodness gathered at 4th of July get togethers and vacays..just gotta love it. Now, while I love a good pasta salad and lean grilled meats, oh and Lay's Potato Chips, this girl has gotta have her sweets and hello...fresh fruit season. So, I have gathered 3 of my favorite Summer desserts that I always make around this time of year to incorporate the yummy Summer fruits and ones that include some red or blue beautiful-ness..perfect tor the 4th.

My Award Winning Strawberry Crunch Parfait
While I made this winning recipe with Blueberries for the contest, I love it even more with strawberries. Recipe HERE

Next up, the Delicious with coffee, tea or milk Blueberry Streusel Muffins
This is another Fair award winner and with the Blueberries predicted to be so plump this year, who can resist these with the sweet streusel topping!! Yum!!

And how bout some yummy cherry and cream cheese goodness with one of my favs....Cherry Delight
While, I love to make this at Christmas time, Summer is fun too for it's refreshing taste, colorfulness and imagine making it with fresh cherries...so good!! Recipe Here

And last but not least...Let's just incorporate all the berries, like I did last week in my Summer Cornet recipe from last week
Tomorrow I'm back with another food little 4th Goodie recipe...

FAMILY......and Flowers
My childhood 4th memories revolve around fireworks at a local high school football field called Rice Field, bomb pops, sparklers, my mom's red velvet Flag cake and picnics with our neighbors, the Brewster's
The fam now gets in on the Americana wear and we may even do a All-American attire for our beach family photo this year.

Even my posies this year are All-Amereican!!


  1. I think you are pretty set in the wardrobe department for the 4th!! So many great looks!! I remember going down to the st. johns river (where it felt like everyone went) to see the fireworks when I was little!! It was fun! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I love your 4th dresses - the whole red dress look and gingham dress are my absolute favorites!

  3. Biana is right, you are set in the wardrobe department! I'm still on the search for something to wear on the 4th! My parents always have a massive picnic at their house that day (we're talking 80+people) and it's a lunch time, so I"ve got to find something cool and thin!

  6. I feel extra patriotic now...I want to get all things red, white, and blue and stars and stripes! I really love your check shirt and shorts, the tank with the aviators, and honey cherries and cream cheese always sing to my heart. Growing up the 4th was a cook out and then sitting in the grocery store parking lot watching fireworks. xoxoxox Amanda

  7. I love dressing for the Fourth...your choices are so perfect and I love that lightweight sweater. We got a flag kimono at work and I'm debating on buying it...I think I may need it. Hope your week is off to a great start beautiful!

  13. You have the BEST 4th of July fashion! I will unfortunately be in a car for 10 hours for 4th of July this year...but I will do my best to be fashionably red, white and blue (and comfy) anyways!! Are you and your family making it into Michigan any time this summer??

  14. OOO I forgot about bomb pops! I'm going to have to go get some for the weekend just because. I really want that made in the USA top! The sweater is super cute too.

  26. Ahhhhh look at all your fun outfits!!!! Love that off the shoulder red dress and that blue gingham! So fun and festive. The 4th always brings back fond memories for me too. The magic of fireworks when I was younger...and now we spend every 4th at the beach with my SIL nad her family. Getting to see my nephew get excited for the same things I used too. And you know...beaching!

  27. I am so into red, white, and blue outfits all summer long! You have really adorable options going for you here! That flag sweater is so amazing... I understand why you can't stop admiring it.


  28. I love all of your 4th of July outfits! They're so pretty and patriotic! My favorite part about the 4th is always spending time with family! It never gets old!

  29. Your trifle looks just like my Mama's! Yummy!

  30. Family, food, fashion and fireworks sounds like the perfect way to sum up the holiday weekend. I adore your red off-the-shoulder dress and all of your previous patriotic yet amazingly stylish outfits. Your sense of fashion continues to amaze me week after week!!! I need your style secrets LOL

  31. I need to put some flags in my planters. I love that top with the red/white ties and also your red off the shoulder dress! Cute, cute, cute!


  32. Love your style for the 4th! Looking forward to my husband's brass quintet playing next to a lake for the 4th!

  33. Now I can't wait to see the kimono! We are taking it easy this year for the 4th. The fireworks are past Jax's bedtime and he isn't big on loud noises or crowds, but I imagine that will all change in the next year or two!

  34. Super cute outfit options for the 4th! I love the flag sweater! Can't wait to see it on you!

  47. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.

  48. What great patriotic outfits without wearing the flag exactly. My PC is kind of funny about people wearing a version of the American flag...goes back to his days of soldiering, I think. So glad to see some inspiration for outfits I can do without wearing the stars and stripes.

  49. I love all of your patriotic outfits - I can't choose my favorite! I'm going to feature this post tonight as part of Thursday Favorite Things! Thanks for linking up every week!

  50. Love all of your 4th outfits and hope you had a great holiday!
