Fourth of July Faves

In honor of one of my favorite holidays, this week’s favorites are a day early and appropriately themed.  To me, the Fourth of July really symbolizes the beginning of summer.  I have so many wonderful memories of celebrating our nation’s independence – decorating our bikes to ride in the neighborhood parade, watching the biggest fireworks show west of the Mississippi (at least it used to be!), and of course making as many red, white, and blue treats as I could think of for backyard barbeques or picnics on the beach.

{healthy treat: coconut water blended with frozen strawberries and a blueberry swizzle stick}

{my summer obsession: striped straws}

{new red and white striped skirt from the Banana sale + navy C bracelet}

{classic Fourth of July dessert: flag cake }

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, and hopefully a four day weekend! Happy Birthday, America!
