4th of July Outfit Idea

It’s so hard to believe that the 4th of July is next week! This year we don’t have a lot of plans, which is actually so nice and we’ll be staying in Raleigh. When it comes to what to wear on the 4th of July I always like to be very comfortable and casual. I saw this star embroidered top when I was shopping at Macy’s Backstage and I knew it would be perfect for the holiday. I love it paired with these denim shorts, and Soft Comfort sneakers. These sneakers are so lightweight and very comfortable! They have become my go to sneakers for whenever I’m with Charlotte on the weekends. What will you be wearing on the 4th of July?

Tuesday’s Cravings: Summer Staples

Here are the items that I’m currently craving this week, featuring summer staples! I’ve been searching for a new pair of white jeans, and I love this distressed pair from Free People. I really like that they are high waisted, and a good pair of white jeans are definitely so versatile. I love wearing white denim on the weekends when I’m not wearing summer dresses, and I also have a pair of Old Navy white pixie pants for the work week. Which is your favorite, and what are you currently craving?

What to Read This Summer

What to Read This Summer-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic

Lately I’ve been making more of an effort to read at night instead of watching Netflix. I used to absolutely love reading, but between working full-time and being a Mom to a 1 year old life is super hectic these days! I started listening to Bad on Paper Podcast a few months ago (you can read my list of my favorite podcasts here), and they are always talking about what books they are reading which really inspired me. Here’s what I’ve read over the past couple of months and they are the perfect books to pick up and read this summer:

1. Normal People by Sally Rooney

This book takes place in Ireland and it follows the relationship between Connell and Marianne from high school through college. They have a true friendship, and also an on again and off again romantic relationship. It’s really interesting to follow along and see how they have impacted each others lives. I loved this book overall, but it doesn’t have a real ending which definitely bothered me.

Rating: 3/5 stars

2. The Idea of You by Robinne Lee

Solène is a single mother of a teenage daughter and ends up dating Hayes Campbell from the boy band August Moon. It follows their relationship which becomes a lot more than she was expecting, and she finds out a lot about herself along the way. This is a book that I could not put down, and it left me with a book hangover for quite a few days! I highly recommend this one.

Rating: 5/5 stars

3. When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger

I’ve had this book on my nightstand for about a year, but I just never sat down to read it. Karolina Hartwell is the wife of a senator and she is arrested for a DUI. Emily Charlton and their mutual friend Miriam help Karolina get her life back after her arrest. This is a Devil Wears Prada book so I knew it would be a good one, and it was another one that I couldn’t put down!

Rating: 4/5 stars

4. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

This is a book that I’m reading currently, and I am in love with it! Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is ready to tell her life story, and she sits down with writer Monique Grant. She wants Monique to write her biography and publish it once she passes away, and Monique isn’t sure why she has chosen her to write this book. She tells the story of her life and her seven marriages, and it’s definitely an interesting one.

Rating: 5/5 stars

Studded Sandals

I’ve had my eye on these studded sandals by March Fisher for a while now and I finally took the plunge and purchased them! I’ve been wearing them non-stop for weeks now and I love how versatile they are, and they are very comfortable too which is a must. I love them here with this twist front top that I kept from one of my recent Stitch Fix orders for a casual weekend outfit.

I wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago when we went to story time in North Hills (you can see my family friendly North Hills guide here).  When we have a free Saturday morning we’ve been going to story time and Charlotte absolutely loves it. It’s fun for her to be around other kids since she isn’t in daycare, and they read several different new books which is great.
