How was everyone's 4th of July? We enjoyed taking Claire to the beach for her first time seeing fireworks! She really enjoyed herself and so did we. It was fun to see people light fireworks off up and down the beach. The breeze off the water kept the temperature down and hearing the waves at the same time was so relaxing!

On a completely different note, I am wearing my new lemon print skirt from Sammydress today. I received quite a few comments on it on my June budget post and I can see why. The lemon print is very fresh and summery and pairs well with stripes for pattern mixing!  I ended up getting a large and it fits perfectly so size up when you purchase. It's fully lined and the material is silky feeling, not stiff at all, so it has great movement when you walk. I have my closet inventory coming up and I noticed when I was counting how I am such a sucker for a cute skirt! A fun print or colored skirt makes me feel confident. After getting back into running I love showing off a little leg!

  9. That is a fun print skirt, I love it, especially with the stripes! Fireworks on the beach sounds like such a fun time! I think by next year my son will enjoy fireworks--this year he was still pretty scared of the loud noise, poor guy!

  13. Wow...I really like this print mixing---and there aren't even the same colors in both (well, except the white). It must be the stripe thing---this is why stripes are so popular, huh?

  17. There is that pretty skirt again.
    Lemon prints always remind me of the Stella McCartney collection from a few years back.
    I guess it has to do with the fact that I loved it so much and I never got something similar to it, which is what I tend to do when the prices are out of my reach.

  27. I bet y'all had a great time watching her reactions to seeing fireworks for the fist time - so special! I'm glad y'all had a great 4th. My family did as well :). I LOVE the sweet print on this skirt. It's so charming! I wouldn't have thought to pair it with stripes, but the combination works beautifully.
