Friday Five :: 4th of July Edition

LaurenComment

Happy Friday! Can you believe that it is almost the Fourth of July?!

It's time to start outfit planning for your holiday festivities! I am dedicating today's "Friday Five" to comfortable, easy-to-wear outfit ideas. I am hoping that this post gives you inspiration to recreate similar looks out of what's already in your closet or simply purchase a piece or two to complete a look!

1. Striped tee + red shorts. A navy/white striped tee is my go-to top for any patriotic holiday. You can wear a striped tee with white shorts, denim shorts or these red shorts for a classic 4th look. If you don't yet own a striped tee you love, this is an essential piece you NEED in your summer wardrobe pronto! You'll wear it constantly, I promise.

Here are my favorite striped tees to shop ::

2. Blue and white stripes + denim shorts. If you follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love this little off-the-shoulder pom-pom top. It's such a great little affordable top {only $35}, that I own it in three colors! This blue/white version is perfect for the Fourth of July! It can also be worn with white bottoms. Just add a red accessory like these tassel earrings to finish the look!

3. White top + red shorts. You can't go wrong with a plain or lace white top with red shorts. Pair with sandals or sneaks and you are sure to look patriotic and festive without much effort! These $38 blue sunnies are the perfect accessory!

4. Red top + white or blue denim. You can't go wrong with wearing a classic red top for the Fourth! Bright orangey-reds are trending this season and are on the most flattering shades of red on all skin tones. This is a great purchase to wear now through Fall. The floral one I am wearing here is currently 60% off and this one is another favorite and just $35!

5. Anything blue and white gingham! Gingham is always a classic choice for the Fourth and really any summer occasion! Gingham is a trending pattern and seemingly everywhere this season...and a print to adopt if you haven't already!

Last but not least, if you are like me and your Summer sunscreen supply is ALREADY running out...I am replenishing my sunscreen with BeautyCounter's sunscreen sticks. Why? Well, first and most importantly because these are SAFE! {I am sure most of you have read all about the scary chemicals in most sunscreens.} And, two, because my kids can apply the BeautyCounter Protect Sticks themselves and actually don't whine and complain about putting on sunscreen. {Can I get an amen from all you mama's?!}

I personally love this sunscreen because it is SO easy for touchups on my chest and shoulders while at the pool, lake or beach, and doesn't leave any greasy white residue! Purchase here under "Lauren's Summer Skin Social" and I'll send you a $20 Lip Conditioner in your choice of either Peppermint or Calendula with any $50 or more purchase!

Have a fabulous weekend!

One of my favorite accessory companies, BaubleBar, is having a FLASH SALE on select summer earrings today! BaubleBar is my go-to source for fun, colorful and affordable statement jewelry, and I wear their earrings constantly!

You all know how much I wear pink tassel earrings! Once you own a pair, you'll be surprised by how much they go with. I wear mine year-round, and this fab BaubleBar pair is on the sale for $26!

I also love the versatility of a chic black and white statement earring. They are perfect paired with a bright colored outfit or just plain black and/or white for a monochromic look. This pair is just $24 on the sale! I also love this black and white pair, also on sale!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me in this top in white. It's such a breathable, easy-to-wear piece for hot summer days. Since it's been a piece I am wearing so often, I picked up the pink, too! I'm excited to share that this favorite little top has just been marked down by 40% and is now only $23!

If you don't own a pair of white denim shorts, you need a pair. Think of them as a summer essential like white jeans, but more appropriate for sweltering summer days! As with white jeans, I recommend sizing up in most cases.

Here are some white denim shorts in a variety of lengths to shop ::

This tote by Live Fashionable is the perfect Summer carryall. I love this gray leather since it's super durable and a color that goes with anything, and the size holds everything you need without feeling like you are lugging around a tote bag!

If you live in the Atlanta area, I am teaming up with two of my favorite local bloggers, who also close friends and work with me as Partner Stylists for my wardrobe styling company, for a HUGE CLOSET SALE TOMORROW NIGHT! Details are below, but stop in between 4-8pm to shop all three of our closets, including clothes, shoes and accessories. We will have lots of designer and boutique clothes, at a wide variety of sizes, styles and price points...lots of deals, too! Feel free to invite friends and stop by for any amount of time. Email me at lauren@editbylauren. com for more info.

Stylishly yours,
