This Fourth of July is going to look a little different than in years past. We may not be out on the lake, watching fireworks, and having big bashes, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate. My family is having a backyard BBQ and my friends and I are enjoying a picnic on the river - simple, but fun. If you're doing something similar, but still want to be festive, I've got you covered! Below are nine casual outfits you can easily throw together for a great Fourth of July look.

Shopping: Pretty in Pink

I'm currently in Charleston visiting my sister and brother-in-law, which means I'm surrounded by color. From Rainbow Row to swim trunks - blues, pinks, and yellows are everywhere. Pink is one of my favorites, especially the houses and flowers that helped inspire today's post.

A couple of years ago, I created a post all about shopping the best yellow finds on the web. To date, it's still one of my favorite fashion and home decor round ups. In honor of National Pink Day and my favorite Charleston color, I'm bringing it back. Below, find all the best pink finds online, including those in hot pink, blush, and bubble gum.

Summer has officially arrived in Chicago! Restaurant patios are opening up, the sunshine is out, and the shorts are unpacked. One of my favorite ways to cool down during the summer is with fruity popsicles and classic cocktails. Today - I'm combining them for the best of both worlds.

Month in Photos - May

in , by Lavender Elizabeth, June 08, 2020
This Month in Photos feels different than previous ones. In the past two weeks, our country has been going through something that will go down in history. Living in Chicago, I've seen firsthand the protests that have been occurring and the change that is being demanded. I've also spent the last week reading and educating myself on the Black Lives Matter movement, which has been eye-opening. I truly feel that this generation is the one that's going to change things - this is just the beginning.


May was filled with the first sight of warm weather, a lot of coloring, and finally seeing my friends in person.
