Thanks Albion Fit for sending me this stunning swimsuit! The stripes are so flattering, I love the retro high neck halter, and I could NOT be more obsessed with the lace up back. Perfect paired with a deep part and mini side braid. A simple silver necklace, and serious sunglasses. (Also beauty wise; serious highlighter and mirror chrome nails).

One Set Three Ways

I love a good set- so versatile! They can be worn together or as separates. This one from Free People is too good- whimsical with a slight sophistication. It has a blue and black design peppered with white beads. The key to making the set work as separates is focusing on a detail or color in the pattern and accentuating that detail up. I chose silver to be the metal I carried throughout all three looks. Pairing perfectly with my mirrored chrome nails- I am obsessed!

The top has these amazing cape sleeves that almost act like a kimono. Paired with matching soft shorts.  Together they appear like a romper. For my first look I wore them together. The neckline was perfect for a pop of lace and a lariat from my own line, @jaelledesigns. Minimal styling, the set speaks for itself.

For the second look, I pulled out the black undertones of the embellishment. Pairing the set's top with a black choker from my own line, a black watch, and added silver with mirrored sunnies (that match my chrome nails as well as the black) and a bangle from my own line. Popped the white beading with a white lace bra.

Americana Inspired Fourth of July Summer Fruit and Cheese Board + Rose Sangria Popsicles

Fruit and Cheese Plate DIY Tutorial on juliettelaura.blogspot.com

As you all know by now; I could live off of fruit and cheese plates. They are the perfect addition to any summer gathering, picnics, cookouts, beach trips, you name it. I assembled this fruit and cheese board for a Fourth of July Cookout I went to. Read on for the how to plus bonus recipe; Rose Sangria Popsicles!

Cheese;
-I included a hard cheese, a semi soft, and a soft cheese.
-I cut the a block of cheddar length wise to make two skinnier blocks,
then I cut stars into the cheddar (saved the excess for weekday snacks).
-For semi soft I used Saint Andre, similar to Brie but with a slightly firmer texture.
-And for soft I used goat cheese.

Fruit;
-Fresh, Dried, and since this was a cookout, Grilled.
-For Fresh I picked Strawberries and Blueberries. Patriotic AF and seasonal.
-For dried I sprinkled dried cranberries over the goat cheese. (so yum!)
-For grilled I used pineapples cut into stars;
I cut the top and bottom off of a pineapple. Sliced off the sides,
then cut into slices. Then cut each into stars. Which I then grilled.
I served some on the board, and extras on skewers.

I served on my stunning stone slab. I purchased it from Boston Public Market from American Stone Craft, they use locally sourced stones. Seriously one-of-a-kind beautiful pieces.
