Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays! I grew up going to our cabin every year and I am so excited to continue that tradition with the kids. Beckam and I arrived in Montana Tuesday night and Cody, Mara and Wes are coming up today! I love coming home to Montana and spending time with my family. I feel like it’s one of the few places I can really unwind and relax.

I got this USA sweatshirt for the festivities this week. I’ve worn it two days in a row. It’s super soft, and I love having a light weight sweater at night especially for fireworks. What are your plans for the fourth? You can follow along on Snapchat (@hellofashblog) and Instagram (@hellofashionblog) to see more of our weekend in Montana :)

If you missed it yesterday I curated a collection with the Daily Vice (see post here). The Daniel Wellington watch and bared ring from today’s post are two of the items and they are over 60% off retail value. They are only available until 12pm PST today. You can shop collection here. Can’t get enough of this watch!

When it comes to accessorizing in summer I always gravitate towards simple, lightweight, and functional pieces. Whether traveling, soaking up the sun, or just gearing up for a full day’s work, a little bit goes a long way. I always have a few small, versatile pieces of jewelry floating around my car to grab and go. It’s an easy detail and doesn’t require any thought. Below are three of my top accessories to grab and go this summer. I have collaborated with the Daily Vice to create a limited edition capsule collection. See more below :)

1. Colorful, canvas watch: A watch is as functional as it is beautiful. I love a canvas band for a more casual watch option. This red, white, and blue band is a great way to add color and a casual vibe to your look, whatever it is.

2. Dainty necklace: I love a thin, feminine chain necklace for summer. It’s a great addition to any neckline without overwhelming your ensemble.

3. Simple statement ring: It might sound like an oxymoron, but the truth is an edgy design in an understated, unembellished material is a summer staple that you’ll end up wearing it with everything.

I’m excited to share my curated collection that will be featured on the Daily Vice. It is only available for 24 hours! If you download the free app you can purchase the full set including this gold ring, lariat necklace, and watch (all featured in todays post) for $250 (original price $400). The first 50 purchases get an extra 50% off too with promo code: hellofashion50 (valid for 48 hours) so you can get the whole set for $125. I’m literally obsessed with this watch. I’ve been wanting it for years, and so glad to have it a part of my collection.
Also in case you missed it there is a new post on Hello His with an easy 4th of July look for your weekend festivities.

The question on what to wear to weddings is one I get a lot. I shared some general tips a few weeks ago here in case you missed it and wanted to share another approach. From beaches to cathedrals, weddings can be all over the place and so can the dress code. For a day wedding you can usually get away with more casual attire.

For her, it’s the perfect opportunity to wear a maxi sun dress in a bright color or bold pattern (the dress I’m wearing today is under a $100). I love the simple pleating detail on this maxi dress which adds a perfect amount of elegance for a day wedding and the lightweight material makes it ideal for a warm summer day. A crochet lace dress is another great option for a day wedding – the material is a casual take on a more black-tie appropriate lace but still has the same feminine effect. A nude heeled sandal, fun print clutch, and feminine accessories finish it off perfectly.

For him, a day wedding is a great excuse to trade in his slacks for dark-wash denim and focus on other details like a sharp, slim fitting blazer (this one is perfect for summer) and dress shoes (this pair under $50) that make a statement on their own. Another way to balance out the casual effect of denim for a day wedding is with a printed pocket square (love this print). You can find more of Cody’s tips for wearing a pocket square on Hello His.

Check out a few more of my favorite picks for a day wedding below.
