It's mind blowing to believe that Thursday is already Independence Day. I always think of it as the un-official "middle" of the summer (even though it's a little earlier than the exact middle). But July always seems to fly so it almost doesn't even count as a full month in my book. I feel like July 4 is like saying, "oh, hello August". I have a weird way with calendars and math, it seems.
July is my birthday month (what, you don't celebrate yours for a full month?) and my daughters too, so there are big things in store for this month. Yep, that's right, August, I see you.
Take a day or two this week to pull out the classic red, white and blue - you'll be glad you did!
Sunglasses, Ray Ban
Top, Gap (similar)
Clutch, Gap - on sale!
Shorts, Old Navy (c/o)
Necklace, Stella & Dot (c/o)
Sandals, Nine West - on sale!
p.s. remember how at the end of May I said I was going to try to avoid shopping for the month of June?! Boo yeah! I totally did it!!! So I am happy to report that there will be no "June... the damage" post this month! It seems like I just wrote that post yesterday, so in all honesty it wasn't a hard challenge. You know that thing I was mentioning about quick summer months? Yeah, that's what happened.
(one caveat: I did buy this hat, but it was for sun protection and it was only $10, so I am not counting it)
