I love summertime and getting to do fun activities with my husband during this time of year. There are lots of fun date ideas during the summer that can still be affordable. I wanted to share a couple of our favorites!

Something new we tried this year that we both had never done, was strawberry picking. We are both huge strawberry fans so it was a great day date for us! Some tips before you go strawberry picking, make sure to wear closed toed shoes and pants if you can as well so you don’t get itchy afterwards. Trust me, I learned the hard way. It was only $1 for the basket and then $6-$7 for all the strawberries. Make sure to fill up your basket when you go too. The strawberries that are fresh are amazing. They taste way better than the store bought ones.

The next affordable summer date is movie under the stars. You will need a couple essentials for this including: A laptop, some popcorn, a couple blankets, and a movie. This date will work really well if you live out where there aren’t very many city lights or you have access to a place that isn’t near city lights. You can snuggle up under the stars and watch your favorite movie together. We have also set up a fort in our house and done this too. It makes it feel special and out of the ordinary.

One of our favorite things to do during the summer is to go on short adventures. We live close to the D.C. and Baltimore area, so we can easily make a trip to either of those places in a day trip. The best place we have visited recently is the D.C. Zoo. It’s free and there are so many animals to see there. Plus there is an amazing frozen yogurt places across the street.

Some other affordable ideas during the summer when it’s not hot out include: bike riding, bonfire, or having a romantic picnic outside.

Also, wanted to share with you all my favorite white eyelet shirt from Francesca’s. I found it for under $40 and I’m wearing an XS. I also love these embroidered denim shorts I found at Target. They are on sale right now for $12 and fit true to size. My turquoise earrings and black sandals are also from Target and I linked them for you.

I would love to know what you all think about my summer date ideas and what are some of your favorite summer date ideas are! Hope you all have a great week!

XOXO,

I hope you all are having an amazing summer so far. It’s hard to believe that we are only a couple weeks away from the 4th. I always love all the fun festivities that come with the holiday. Fireworks, sparklers, ice cream, and cookouts are some of my favorite things about this holiday. I am not sure what our plans are yet, but I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite outfit ideas for it and different ways you can style them.

One of my favorite outfits for the 4th of July is this cute red, white and blue off the shoulder top from Francesca’s. You can wear it with denim shorts or skirt, or even wear it with a white skirt to dress it up. I also love that you can tuck it in or wear it out of shorts or pants. It fits TTS and I am wearing an X-Small in it. You can also go with the classic straw bag for $30 or a dressier look with this cute white clutch for under $40. I am wearing my favorite white tassel earrings from Baublebar’s Sugarfix line at Target for $12. You could also put some cute navy blue earrings with it. I love a good pair of nude wedges with it. I found mine at J. Crew Factory on sale for $40 and they are the comfiest wedges I have ever owned.

My second favorite outfit for this holiday is this cute white eyelet off the shoulder top I also found at Francesca’s for under $40. It goes perfect with denim shorts and or a denim skirt. It fits TTS as well and I am wearing an X-Small. You could go casual with it and throw on some tan flat sandals or white slides or you could dress it up with some nude wedges too.

My last favorite piece for the 4th of July is this adorable red dress from Charlotte Russe. I found it for $30 and it is so comfortable on. It also fits TTS and I am wearing an X-Small. You could throw in a cute blue and white striped hair scarf and some cute white tassel earrings with it. You could go casual or dressy with it too, but I usually go with wedges since I am a shortie.

I hope that this helps give you all some cute 4th of July outfit ideas! I linked all of the products in this post and also linked some of my favorite 4th of July suits too. Hope you all have a great week and thanks for checking out my post!

I hope you all have had a great weekend! I can’t believe how close we are to July 4th already. We had a fun weekend visiting Frederick, Md on Friday. We both have the day off so we usually take some time to go on a fun adventure together. I wanted to share with you all some of our favorite spots in Frederick and also some of my favorite summer accessories.

Frederick has a beautiful downtown with shops and restaurants. It also has a canal that runs right on the inside of the town. You can walk down there and grab a bite to eat or grab a favorite dessert at Cakes to Die For. We always make an effort to go there for a treat, they have amazing vegan/gluten free brownies. We are still trying out restaurants downtown, but a good place is Firestone’s. They make a lot of good food and can make anything gluten free there too. We also did a little bit of shopping for me at Francesca’s in Frederick. I will be sharing some of those looks in the next few weeks from there.

I love summertime and wearing sundresses as you all know! I wanted to share some of my favorite simple accessories that go with several different outfits.

Purses

One of my favorite trends this year is a straw crossbody bag. I love how you can wear it with jean shorts and a tank or with a maxi dress and heels. It’s so versatile for summer outfits. I shared my favorite one above from Amazon for $22 and a couple others I love.

I recently came across a white floral embroidered clutch at Francesca’s and I love it. It’s more of a dressier purse, but goes with any color. I got mine for $38 and linked it above.

Earrings

I am loving all the statement earrings this year. I have probably bought five pairs in different colors. My current favorite place to find statement earrings is at Target. I found my white tassel earrings from there and recently my turquoise tassel earrings as well. They have different earrings and colors to choose from. The brand is called sugarfix by Baublebar. Most of the earrings run around $13-$15.

Shoes

One of my favorite accessories is shoes. I am loving the espadrille wedges this year. I found a nude pair at J.Crew Factory on sale for $40. They normally run around $98, however J. Crew Factory normally runs a lot of sales and discounts. I found my black wedges at Charlotte Russe for $30. They normally have a lot of shoes at an affordable price.

I also love to find shoes that are comfortable and flat. My favorite place currently is Target. I found both my black sandals and my tan slides there for around $20. Both shoes run true to size and I linked both of them here for you.

I’d love to hear from you all what some of your favorite summer accessories are and what you are looking foreword to the most this summer! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Denim Finds and Favorite Summer Trend

I am obsessed with my jeans!! Denim is a must have all year long, especially when you live in the north and it feels like 60 degrees outside in June. It has taken me a long time to find my favorite pair. I wanted to share with you all my favorite jeans and summer trend.

Thank you all for hanging in with me during this busy season of life. We are in the moving process and are super excited about moving into our new house this summer! So I will be sure to write a blog post on our home decor after we get settled. I am obsessed with my jeans!! Denim is a must have all year long, especially when you live in the north and it feels like 60 degrees outside in June. It has taken me a long time to find my favorite pair. I wanted to share with you all my favorite jeans and summer trend.

I have never spent a lot of money on jeans, but with coupons and sales it’s definitely worth it to me to spend a little more. I also struggled with finding jeans that fit me well with being short and curvy. It has taken me several tries to find a really good pair. I recently went into American Eagle Outfitters and found the most amazing pair of jeans though for 50% off. My husband needed a pair of jeans as well and it was buy one get one 50% off on jeans so we went for it. I got the high rise, dark wash, short jeans in a size 2 for $50 and I LOVE them. They are so comfortable and fit my height as well. I linked them above for you all! I normally wear a size 2 in pants and they are true to size.

My new summer obsession is everything Gingham. I own at least 5 items of gingham now and love wearing it. It’s a summer trend and looks so flattering on. This off the shoulder gingham top is one of my new favorites. It goes with denim, white shorts, white pants, and pretty much anything. I can throw on a pair of flats with it for a casual look or wedges/heels for a dressier look. I am wearing a size XS in the shirt.

I am loving all the retro looks for this summer and will definitely be sharing some more of my favorites for this season. Hope you all enjoy the looks as much as I do and you all come back to check out more of my summer favorites.

XOXO,

Autumn
