A Sparkling Fourth!

The quiet roads outside the store suggest one thing-- its July Fourth time! People have left work, sports, and chores behind for the week.  July the Fourth is one of the happiest holidays, is it not? What other holiday insists upon sparklers, bright colors, sun, and summer yummies? It is a holiday of fun.  And even more importantly, it is a time to celebrate our freedom as a people and as a country.  So bon voyage to all our readers.  May this be the "sparkliest" July Fourth yet! 

Here are some images (some from our very own shop!) to prepare you for the week ahead! THINK: watermelon, lemonade, bathing suits, floating rafts, and big smiles.

A Flag is a great accessory :) 

Sparklers are of the upmost importance. 

We are loving this versatile dress! Wear it anywhere and everywhere.

Pack for your vacation in this classic bag.

This is an example of a head-to-toe look done right :)
We love gathering inspiration from Blair of Atlantic-Pacific.

Practical, cute, and festive.. J CREW always knows whats best!

Simple earrings to add a splash of color to your look!


THE Fourth of July Cake from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten.  This is a MUST for any Fourth of July celebration.

Buy up the local Summer produce at your nearest Farmer's Market.
We love the market at the Dr. Pepper Place in Downtown Birmingham and the market in Alexander City near  Lake Martin.  Both are held on Saturday mornings. 

Nothing says Fourth of July like a good ole' fashion hotdog.  Check out Food Network's suggestions for some good eats.

AND... if you get tired of cooking. Find a great restaurant to do the hard part for you.  Sit down, relax, and eat up!


An American Classic

See you next week!
