I hope you all had a wonderful July 4th week celebration. We just returned from summer vacation in Wisconsin.  Lakeside vacations are quickly becoming one of my favorite American summer traditions! They consist of hanging out on the lake during the day and chillin’ by the firepit at night. Of course with the week that was in it we had TONS of fireworks displays also!

The idea of vacation and holiday (as we say in Ireland) means dressing up every night after a fun filled day in the sun! So I figured, why not dress up at the lake?! One of my favorite picks was this STRIPED SKIRT – perfect for the week of July Fourth celebrations. I do love a fun skirt to mix and match with different tops . The outfit options are endless. I spotted this skirt during a quick visit to Forever 21 and couldn’t resist it as it reminds me of something you could wear dressed up  down here or in Europe for your #summerstyle2017 (you can check out my Forever 21 Summer Haul VIDEO!).

Anyone else with a small head have a really tough time finding hats to fit?! I found this sunhat recently at a hotel gift shop I couldn’t leave it on the shelf because I knew I probably would never find one the same size again (well that was my justification for the impulse purchase!). I now have to get used to wearing hats!

Of course I had to style this outfit with the Gita Tassel Earrings! They are the perfect addition to every summer wardrobe.

When I first got this ASOS top I thought that it was way too short and I wouldn’t be able to wear it with anything. I have decided it’s the perfect top to wear with high-waisted skirts, jeans or pants. I love the one-shoulder look too!

Can we talk about the Straw Bag?! You know when you buy something you have been wanting for ages are you finally find it for a steal of a deal?! Yes this is the STRAW BAG! I have always wanted one but didn’t want to look old fashioned. I needed the classy meets current vibe for this and I finally found it also at FOREVER 21 last week!
