it’s stars and stripes week in honor of the fourth of july. and since we all love stripes i thought i would dig into my stripes arsenal and share a few of my favorites. we’re sprucing up the house this week too with stars and stripes pillows (don’t tell mr. style. he doesn’t quite understand my obsession with pillows) and setting the table for company.
first up is this gorgeous skirt and top from Lafayette 148. for those of you not familiar with this brand Lafayette 148 New York is a women’s fashion brand based in NYC but available in luxury retailers Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s. the brand was created in 1996 and is now headquartered in the Brooklyn Navy Yard with their own workshop and production facility. it’s a rarity in the fashion world to find a brand that combines concept, design, and production under one roof. and i applaud them for that feat. it’s exciting to see a company invested in keeping things stateside.
since a young girl i’ve always looked forward to the fourth of july and sparklers! the fourth is a laid back holiday filled with hamburgers, potato salad, ice cream and of course a spectacular fireworks show.
pockets, ladies, who can resist a skirt with pockets? this skirt has an A-line silhouette, side slit pockets and a high rise adjustable belt.
bing cherries are plentiful this time of year and soooo delicious. it’s an easy dessert to dish up to a crowd.
small touches like patriotic pillows set the holiday mood.
this ankle strap shoe is stylish and has a mid-heel height.
all right, gang, the countdown for the fourth is on! tomorrow is another day and another stripe. and another dessert. what are your plans for this coming holiday?
