The Inspiration:

{fresh cherries from Union Square Greenmarket}

To me, July is a month-long celebration. It kicks off with exciting Fourth of July fireworks and cookouts, and the party doesn’t just end there. The celebration of a hot American summer continues throughout the entire month with beach trips, bonfires, and adventures to the Farmer’s Market. The weather chimes in with this celebration, and unleashes its most humid, sunny temperatures that make it almost impossible not to eat at least 5 popsicles per day (mango + strawberry, please.)

On one particular trip to the Farmer’s Market, I was inspired by these delicious looking cherries against a navy blue gingham tablecloth, and the image stuck with me. My outfits this month definitely paid homage to the classic American summer embodied in this photograph, and seemed to mostly consist of breezy dresses paired with simple accessories. In the heart of Sundress Season, I chose to showcase the three dresses I wore the most throughout July, whether it was out to dinner or to the beach.

Enjoy the sunshine today (and a glass of sweet tea!)

xx, Laina
