Independence Day


So my days have become increasingly full of day dreaming and creative planning as of late. This is because whenever I read about a designer or see a show that I love, I get really excited and start thinking of 1) how I can obtain whatever it is I love or 2) what I can afford that looks similar to the style.
On that note, here are a few things I am currently coveting, and would totally wear to celebrate Independence Day. 

You can use these as inspiration or pick them up for yourself-  if so, lucky you! 

(Some items are on serious sale):


1.
Floral dress by J.Crew


2.
Shoes by Burberry 




3.
 Crossbody bag by 3.1 Philip Lim

4. 
Lunar Phase Ring by Pamela Love 


5. 

 Jacket by Rebecca Minkoff


I’m dreaming of being out at a restaurant that has a drive up boat parking lot right about now, with little or no access to wifi. We are going to our family lake house in Wisconsin to celebrate the holiday and I can’t wait. I’m looking forward to unplugging for a few days and catching up on some reading and quality time with the family unit. Follow me on IG @zahra_sandberg for some of our travel diaries!

When I started blogging, and even now still, I feel a bit overwhelmed trying to keep up with all of the designers and fashion shows going on. Once you think you know a little, the season is over and everyone is talking about the next season or pre-season. This could be seen as a negative to some, as though you will never be able to keep up with what is actually in style because everything is in constant flux, but I see it as a sort of relief because you know that nothing is going to be a trend forever and everything, (well, almost everything – ahem- overalls with one strap down) will come back in style some time. 

So if you love and are the only one wearing, say a gold lame’ leotard, you shouldn’t worry because you might just be a trend-setter! I honestly think that is the secret of all the big trend-setting bloggers out there. Another reason to just wear what you love and what looks good on you.

Here are all the items for my Fourth of July look again:


1. Floral dress by J.Crew

2. Shoes by Burberry 

3. Crossbody bag by 3.1 Philip Lim
