Top: Pins and needles, Shorts: Nasty Gal, Wedges: Steve Madden, Necklace:Forever 21 
Sunnies: Le Specs

Ok, so I know that this moment has passed but I was so wrapped up in "the moment" that I put blogging it on the back burner (and hot dogs on the front). I'm sure you figured out I am talking about July 4th. What gave it away, the red white and blue?

The shorts I am wearing are my DIY embellished shorts. This project couldn't have been any easier. I bought a yard of the cheapest ruffle at Joanne's and simply sewed it on my shorts. Now that's a permanent solutions. I was also tempted with the idea of Velcro, that way you can remove, and even switched with another material if you so please,but I decided I loved this look so much I'd keep if forever!

My forth was FANTASTIC. Full of food and marvelous festivites. 
I hope yours was just as marvelous.

Oh! And, it's FRIDAY!
