Happy 4th of July weekend! This is one of my favorite holidays, because it’s usually spent on a lake with boating and bonfires in tow. We’re in Michigan for the weekend at Doug’s family cottage, celebrating our niece’s baptism. We’re the Godparents, so it’s an extra special event!
Opposite to my typical over-packing nature, prepping took about two seconds. Why? “Easy” is the theme of laid back weekends like this, and fretting about fashion is far from anyone’s radar. Just pack up the basics and let’s go!
I’ve put together a roundup of weekender staples that bring just the right amount of style to casual getaways. Plus, there are tons of great 4th of July sales going on right now, so before you hit the beach, be sure to stock up first!

Pom Pom Beach Dress – The perfect pop of personality. | Chino Pants – Laid back prep, plus this color is everything for summer months. | Ballerina One-Piece – Classy yet sexy. | Cut-Off Jean Shorts – Will never go out of style. | Classic Striped T – Perfect anytime, anywhere, with pretty much anything | Gold Aviators – Shiny + bright | Easy Button Down – Throw it on and go | Pom Pom Clutch – Seriously obsessed | Nike Sneakers – A little activity is a great thing | Nude Wrap-Up Flats – From dresses to shorts, these complete any outfit.
