How is it already almost July?! I feel like it was just May and I was graduating from college. Time really does fly! And The Fourth of July is already next week? Craziness. I put together some of my favorite looks for the holiday, from dresses to swimwear, that will be sure to fit the occasion no matter how you choose to celebrate. How cute is this tassle OTS dress that I found? It’s less than $40 too. Be prepared for a red, white, and blue overload coming your way at the end of this post!

My plans include going home to PA for the first time since I’ve moved to NYC, and spending the weekend with my family and boyfriend. I am so excited to see everyone and just relax by the pool! Hopefully the weather will be nice and sunny (I could really use a tan, ha). My sister got me this swan float for graduation, so I definitely plan to lounge on it all weekend long. We will probably have a cookout by the pool and sip on frosé.

I actually have to fly back to the city on the 4th because we have work on Wednesday. But, I’m thinking I might be able to see the city’s fireworks from the air. How cool would that be?! True story.. my boyfriend and I went to East River Park last summer to get a spot and watch the fireworks, but then it started raining and we left 🙁 Maybe one year I will finally make it to the huge display!

Also, while I’m planning out my summer I want to take a few weekend trips to areas around the city. Obviously, The Hamptons or Montauk are on my list. But I’d love to hear other recommendations for quick weekend trips around the city! Let me know by commenting below 🙂

    This is so your color! I love how vibrant it is – I always wear navy blue and red on the 4th but I may just wear cobalt blue this year. The tassels make it super adorable! I need this dress in my wardrobe 🙂

    I’m loving this color of blue on you – and those tassel earrings are way too cute! How cool would it be to see the fireworks from the plane!? My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost two years now and have yet to see fireworks together, so hopefully that will change this year!

    Love this dress and the tassel detail. Blue is gorgeous on you! I hope you get to see the fireworks this year! My favorite part is setting off the fireworks at our annual family BBQ!

    Such a great round up of pieces, no matter the occasion! I really wish I was going to the lake, so I could wear one of those swim suits. So stinkin cute! I love how you correlated the tassels in your dress to the tassels in your earrings. Such a cute touch!
