This 4th of July let’s have fun, celebrate in style, spend time with those we love, and set off a firework or two. Sam and I got lucky to get outfitted by Tipsy Elves this year. Their 4th of July styles and clothes are incredibly comfortable and easy to wear on any other day, and in any weather! Tops and Tees are so vivid and bright, we can’t wait for next weekend!

What can be better than having one of the founding fathers on your shirt? Party like a Patriot tank is my favorite for this year, but you will see me in my Honestly Hungover tank on campus in the fall. Sam really liked his I want you to Beer Me and Drunk off my Ass Tees, and as far as the windbreaker goes, we sail, so it’s going to come in handy on lake Minnetonka!

We’ll be at the Edina parade this 4th of July, so if you find us in the crowd, come say hi!

4th of July DIY Ideas!

Happy 4th of July, you are all my fireworks, each and everyone of you! So don’t you forget to shine and show some color! Today’s post is about 4th of July DIY projects and crafts! I picked my favorites from all over the place – different blogs and even YouTube channels that I follow!

1. DIY Flag shorts.

This is an amazing piece of apparel to wear if you want to really show your patriotic spirit off! Done by two sisters – Steph and Melissa. I actually won their channel giveaway a few months ago! Love all the pieces!

2. DIY sexy photographs for your man! 

It really doesn’t take much to take one sexy photo to cheer up your man’s 4th of July celebration. All you really need – is a FLAG 🙂 And some shoes too (but shoes are optional). Check out this one with Grace Potter

3. DIY make-up/dress-up Kandee Johnson style

She is fun, she is fearless, she is fabulous, she is – Kandee! Check out her 4th of July DIY make up and dress up pictures/tutorial here

Who said cooking isn’t DIYing? You are not buying the cake, so that’s official hand- making/baking/stirring/mixing

Get the recipe to make this easy cheesecake from the kraft foods website!
