 Happy 4th of July, y'all! 
I've put together a mood board that includes a few of my favorite red white and blue fashion related things. (Can we just take a moment for that picture of Karlie?!) I'll be spending the holiday with my family and a few close friends. Hope ya'll have a great weekend!

 A couple of weeks back I attended the wrap party for Art + Design Magazine's release of their 'Beauty'  issue. The all-white event was held at Desi Vega's Steakhouse in New Orleans. I loved the laid back and classy atmosphere as well as each guest's take on the dress code. The even featured trunk shows for two local brands, NOLA Ware- a men's wear line of formal wear and accessories and Root, an eco friendly line of wooden sunglasses.

There were so many great things about this issue, but one of my absolute favorites was an editorial that was shot in Portland. The colorful images of models draped in fur coats and printed pants were breathtaking and being a huge advocate for anything that even remotely channels the 70's - I was immediately obsessed. You can see some of the images here.

For my outfit I kept it simple with distressed denim and a blazer. Other attendees donned crocheted tunics, lace coachella-esque dresses, off white linen suits, and some simply added pops of white to their look. The last three images include my favorite outfits from the party. Who says all-white has to be boring?

 I've pretty much been living in this look. Sometimes I'll switch it up with a black tee shirt, long charcoal tank top, or oversized button down. These ripped shorts have also been on repeat. I love how minimalistic and simple this look is. My motto is, essentially- less is more and basics are best.

Happy Monday, y'all!
