By now you’re likely sipping on a red, white and blue bevy while soaking up the sun, just waiting for those fireworks to begin. But we couldn’t let this day pass us by without a little nod to the 4th! And if you’ve yet to pick out your festive outfit, let’s take a cue from BrittanyAlyciaJackie  and Katie. With photos from Ivy & Stone, there’s more right here! From all of us at SMP, wishing you a safe and happy holiday.


From Jen of Ivy & Stone… We collaborated with 4 fashion bloggers to do an inspirational fourth of July. A what to wear – idea shoot! All four of my lovely ladies are fashion bloggers here in Utah and of course they dressed the part to a tee! We wanted to have a girls picnic, centered on all things 4th of July! We had old bottle coca-colas, big straw hats, bright red lipstick, blueberries, cherries, flags, and to top it off– a fourth of July berry cake! We all couldn’t wait until we were done shooting so we could really finish it off! I feel like this could be a good inspiration to all those girls out there needing ideas on what to wear for the 4th! I hope you enjoy!
