It was an unusual 4th of July weekend because it was so cool outside. It even rained for part of the weekend, I felt so bad for all of the cookouts and pool parties. It sprinkled a little during our cookout but luckily it didn’t stop it from happening! The cool weather did stop me from swimming.
I wore this outfit on Sunday and still can’t believe I had to wear a jacket and it was July 3rd. Although, I am wearing a denim jacket and a coral maxi I’d like to still consider it festive, there is a subtle red hint with the coral and a blue feel with the denim. Here is a very similar non maternity style dress for under $30!
I have a few regular maxi dresses that still fit me but this one here is from Gap and it is maternity. I got it early last fall when it was super marked down and had my fingers crossed I would be pregnant at some point during the summer. Luckily, it all worked out and I have been living in this dress. Maxi dresses are like heaven right now, I have been feeling so restricted in the majority of my clothes, even the maternity ones.
This bag! What a beautiful birthday gift. My favorite birthday gift was waking up to breakfast in bed made by my other half. He gave me a gift to open later that night which was an extra surprise. This bag is even more gorgeous in person.
Since it was July 4th weekend I wanted to be festive and wear red, white and/or blue but most of my clothes that color don’t fit or if the top fit I’d have to wear jeans. I can only wear jeans for a short period of time before I become extremely uncomfortable! I knew a dress was the way to go and adding the denim jacket was a great touch. I love the color coral in the summer, it is cheery and bright. It could also be because one of my nephews loves it and always picks it out for me to wear. When my sister or I wear the color he gives us extra compliments. He is such a sweetheart. Enough about the clothes, this bag!!! I already mentioned my husband got this bag for me for my birthday. I am sooooo in love with it! I had pictures of it on my phone and every magazine it was in I would fold the corner of the page down so I could go back and look at it. The fringe is to die for and all of the beautiful colors! This is also my first tan bag and I think it will go with just about everything 🙂
