Hey fabulous readers! Today I bring you a couple of my 4th of July outfits, featuring the typecasted, yet lovely maxi skirt by LuLaRoe. Also, scroll down to find a quick, easy fruit topping that will save cash monies in maple syrup!
Red, white & blue. Does it get any easier? I've styled this maxi about 5 different ways already, but I can't get USA out of my head when I look at this skirt hanging freely in my closet. Hence, it landed one of the biggest roles on the calendar year. 4th of July. Ok, it also landed a big part for Memorial day. Maybe I'll cast it for Veteran's Day as well. Deliberations haven't begun just yet. (Side note: I'd be proud to be type-casted. That would mean I'm working!)

It can be styled in over 30 different ways! Just to give you an idea...
Skirt: Maxi by LuLaRoe (Megan Cook)
Shoes: WHBM (warehouse sale $3.00 - do you know any Chicos or WHBM employees?? They might be able to hook you up!)
Necklace: Best Friend (Premier Designs)
Anyway, with the oppressive heat down in Georgia I couldn't wear the necklace like that combined with a sweater all day! So I began trying some different ideas...
When inspiration is lost, I look on Pinterest and Instagram. There's always something...this time I saw a post featuring a maxi, knotted on the side...hmmmm.
The final outcome...all out patriotic.

The necklace reminded me of a firework. What? I'm serious. After a few hours outside in the sun, it felt like one too.
Well, I hope you had a wonderful 4th weekend. Before I go, I leave you with pancakes, our 4th of July breakfast, and a berry topping recipe.
|fresh milled flour, banana and applesauce are the main ingredients in this breakfast drama, topped by fruit|
Quick and Easy Fruit Topping:
1 to 2 cups of Frozen Mixed Berries (according to mouths to feed)
Drizzle of Vanilla Extract
Water to desired consistency (I started with 1/2 a cup)
1 to 2 teaspoons of maple syrup (or desired sweetener)
Pulse in blender to combine and chop up fruit
Heat on stove
