Since I didn't post last week, I decided to do a little double-feature on the blog today. It will feature an outfit and an excursion. One of my favorite things to do in summer (and in general) is picking fresh fruits and vegetables. If you've seen a post in late fall about pumpkin picking, then you might remember the farm in this post. But first, I am going to show you a summer outfit that is comfortable, yet simple. It includes layers that'll fit any changing summer weather. Enjoy!
Here is the look. I chose to include all solid colors, but many different materials to keep it from looking flat. A few bracelets and a delicate necklace also give the look a pop. The jean shirt can be used if the weather is colder or windy, but can be tied around the waist when it is hot. Here is where everything is from:

Here is a close up of the look with the jean shirt on. You can roll it up or down depending on your liking. I would have liked to add more bracelets, but I wanted to keep the lightness of the look.
At Alstede Farms today, there was a blueberry festival to celebrate the peak of the blueberry season. It was a perfect excuse to take the drive and do some picking. Once there, I saw the giant center filled with activities for kids, food, and farm animals. The first thing I had to do was take tons of pictures of the cute animals.
Next up was paying admission and then wandering in the fields of fresh raspberries, peaches, and blueberries. Everything was fresh and very quiet, because the farm is gigantic and spread out nicely.
After taking the free hay ride back to the main center and paying for the fresh goodies, I took my place in the long line for ice cream. I ended up sharing a soft serve vanilla blueberry ice cream and a blueberry apple cider slushy. Everything was homemade and delicious. (Also it is National Ice Cream Day -- what a happy coincidence!)
I hope you liked the double-feature post on the blog today! As Hannah Montana would say, it really is the "best of both worlds" with this post ;) Let me known if you want to see more posts like this. Also, do you like berry picking as much as I do? Have a fantastic week!
I can't believe it is already July! It feels like summer started yesterday. With that in mind, the 4th of July is tomorrow, and in the US, we all know what that means. Barbecues, fun, and fireworks are just a few of the amazing activities that take up this weekend. For me, an outfit makes everything better. That is why I'm showing you my look for the 4th this year. I hope it gives you some inspiration for your own outfit.
Here it is! I think it has a nice balance of red white and blue, which can be hard when making an outfit. I really wanted to include jean, because it is America's material in my opinion. I picked my lovely blue jean skirt and a tight fitting red and white top to go with it. My shoes and hat are white to make the look more fitting, but keep the main part of the outfit the focus.
Here is a close up of the front. As you can see, this outfit is meant for mainly warm weather, but you could add a sweater or tights if you live in a colder area. Here is where the base of the outfit is from:
Top: American Eagle
Skirt: PacSun - Bullhead Denim
I chose to wear my very patriotic white converse with the ought. I love these shoes because they have red, white, and blue in them, making them the perfect shoe for the 4th. I also grabbed an small old flag, which can be used as an accessory to wave around at a parade, or just walk around with.
Lastly, here is a quick close up of the top, so that you can see the stripes a bit clearer. Also unseen before, I am wearing a choker necklace. It doesn't match the outfit, but is the only one I own. I think a choker really accents the outfit, and gives it an extra pop.
That concludes my 4th of July post. I hope that this outfit brought you some inspiration of what to wear tomorrow. I typically find it very hard picking the perfect outfit, and sometimes even shop for a shirt or other clothing item that can be used specifically for this holiday. Have a great time on the 4th, along with a fabulous week.
