Some days are just way to hot to do anything so those are the days when you drop everything + go to a Dairy Queen + take pictures with your BFF. 

We live in Southern California so our summer’s can get h o t; so on the days when we aren’t able to just leave work & go to the beach.. we have to compromise & leave work for a quick ice cream run.

We may be lactose intolerant but that sure didn’t stop us from 1. going to get some ice-cream & 2. taking some cute pictures while eating it!

It’s safe to say that we are big fans of Fourth of July -> especially considering the fact that we’re even doing a whole little mini series on it. (so, be sure to stay up to date with that on the blog!!)

We’re all about quick & easy things that make your outfit without even having to try! Seriously, bandana’s are the cutest + a lifesaver, especially when you’re just trying to pull an outfit together.
They’re totally great for the fourth because you can pair them with anything that’s either white, red, or blue and you automatically look patriotic/stylish!

For the first look:

All we did was add an adorable blue bandana (from Forever 21) w/ our favorite choker from @SHOPLUXCLOTHING with a simple eyelet top. Simply adding the bandana made the outfit & made it seem like we tried so much harder than we actually did!

For the second look:

This is the look if you want to look extra American & patriotic! Once again, this is a quick & easy addition to the outfit by just adding a red bandana to a blue & white plaid shirt.

We hope these bandana looks helped inspire you for the fourth & if you do recreate any of these looks, be sure to show us on our instagram. We love you guys & hope you all have a safe Fourth of July. <3

+ Be sure to keep an eye out for the rest of our “Celebrating the Fourth” blog post series!
