 1. Hello and happy July!!!!! To be honest, I completely forgot about the mood board this month; I will work on that ASAP and hopefully get it up on Tuesday after the holiday! In the meantime, I have quite a busy weekend ahead as it's Fourth of July weekend and I am heading to Dallas tonight to celebrate. 

My best friends, Coco, Elizabeth, and Caroline are coming down as well and we are staying at my dad's house for the weekend! We are seeing Brother's Osborne tomorrow and I just can't wait for all of the yee-haw vibes. Plus, Joe lives in Dallas now, so that will only add to the fun! I've been fully planning my BBQ menu for our pool days on Sunday/Monday and I just can't wait to enjoy some time by the pool, a weekend with my besties, and warm weather.

2. Last night I stayed up until 1 AM finishing The Love Hypothesis, which was truly the most enjoyable book for me! At first, I thought it was going to be cheesy and dumb, but literally, after 5 pages, I was hooked. Unlike most books that require some ramp-up time, or feel slow in the middle, this romance/beach read was so enjoyable the whole way through; I was laughing out loud (like actually, haha) at so many points. It's about a grad student, Olive, who fake dates one of the faculty in another department... it's just really enjoyable, light, and easy to read. Although it's a bit predictable, there were quite a few twists and turns I didn't see coming. I give it 5 stars!!

3. On a similar note, if you're looking for some book recs to carry you through the rest of the summer/year, I rated and reviewed the 15 books I've read so far this year in this blog post earlier this week!

4. I also published a huge round-up of dresses under $200 in this blog post this week - so many good ones for anything you have coming up this summer or early fall! 

(not under $200, but worth mentioning, this dress that I tried on in-store yesterday and can't stop thinking about)

5. Speaking of dresses - I am packing this dress for the concert tomorrow, and I can't wait to wear it. It's a little different for me, but it's so perfect for the occasion. (& it just went on sale for under $100!!)

6. Also: I am packing this dress for the Fourth - it's the perfect little white dress for summer. I love the back, the ruffles, the eyelet details... it's gorgeous and adorable!

7. Last week I arrived at book club with a fresh blowout and received a handful of compliments on my hair! I am not great at doing my hair (it's naturally curly, very.... puffy/fluffy, and slightly chaotic) but ever since getting this blow-dry brush/curler, my hair has looked so much better! T3 is running a Friends & Family Sale (20% off the entire site - no code required) from 7.21 - 7.31, which would be a great time to snag this!

8. On that note! Let's get into the weekend sales! Here are my top ones:

J.Crew // Up to 70% off and 25% off almost everything else using code GOFOURTH.

Shopbop // Additional 25% off sale

Who What Wear // 50% OFF ALL full-price pieces with code JULY4.

Anthropologie // Additional 50% off sale

MANGO // Up to 50% off sitewide (soo many good things at amazing prices, wow)

9. Last but not least, you need to see Nancy Meyers's LA home tour featured in AD this week if you haven't already. I'll leave it at that.

10. I hope you all have a lovely, relaxing, fun, and safe Fourth of July weekend!
