Celebrating the 4th of July | Fashion, Food & Fitness

While I know that Summer has already officially started, most years celebrating the 4th of July weekend usually feels like the first true weekend of Summer.

So how will I be celebrating? The same way as last year – Getting out of the city and enjoying sunshine, water, great food, and friends.


Check out everything that I’m taking away with me this weekend here. Lots of maxi dresses, swimsuits, and even some fun straw hats.

This weekend is all about BBQ and giant, colorful veggie dishes. With farmers markets and roadside fruit stands on the way out-of-town, we’ll be all stocked up on fresh produce for healthy, satiating meals.

I also brought protein bars and hearty oats to supplement my main whole food-based meals. Plus I love packing my protein powder in little BlenderBottle GoStak Jars.


I love getting out of the city to take advantage of clean air and trails. This is especially important during this trip since I’m finally starting to think about the San Francisco Half Marathon that I’m signed up to run in late July.

You can find all of my favorite Summer running tips here and all of my go-to running gear here. And don’t forget the sunscreen!

How are YOU celebrating the 4th of July this year?

4th of July Weekend: Summer Travel

There’s a lot to look forward to when it comes to Summer – From vacations and long weekends away to picnics, BBQs, and fun warm weather outings.

One of my favorites? The long 4th of July weekend!

This year I’ll be lake-side with great company, delicious food, water sports, and probably too much wine.

Continuing with the fun travel tips and vacation packing posts I’ve published lately, I thought I’d share some of my essentials while I’m getting ready to hit the road for the 4th of July.



A little red, white, and blue is always a hit on a weekend celebrating all things Americana. Whether for you that means a head-to-toe patriotic outfit, some subtle & sweet accessories, or bold, eye-catching swimwear.

Some favorites this season are Fabletic’s The New Americana collection, Chubbies’s Miss ‘Mericas shorts, Studio 15’s backless blue maxi, and you can never go wrong with some chic denim for your blue.


Hats, sunglasses, and headscarves are great options for the 4th of July weekend – Your face shouldn’t be the red part of red, white & blue!

Wide brimmed fedoras, bohemian-inspired floppy hats, oversized sunnies, and chic printed headscarves are just the way to finish off your Summer look.


Sunscreen, moisturizer, and hair oil are musts for a weekend of fun in the sun. Water and sunshine are hard on both your skin AND your hair. Be sure to be good to your body after a day of facing off againt the elements.

My go-to travel beauty products are Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense SPF 50, Jose Maran Bare Naked Wipes, and Macadamia Moisturizing Mask. Seriously, this sunscreen has zero grease – It’s without a doubt the BEST facial sunscreen I’ve ever tried!


I never head out of town for a weekend without planning a thank you or host/hostess gift. Some of the ideas I’ve lined up for this Summer are:

And my number one tip for a fun 4th of July weekend? BE SAFE. Don’t drink and drive, and be sure to keep an eye on your surroundings!

Celebrating Americana

This Fourth of July is especially exciting this year with recent legislation in the United States making me even more thrilled to celebrate this amazing country.

When I hear the word “Americana” I envision red, white, and blue pieces, I picture flags and stripes, and I think of looks that are a little bit cowboy with a touch of hippie chic.
