Happy Thursday everyone! Our Fourth of July festivities kicked off last night at a neighborhood BBQ and firework show (best combo). Naturally, I wanted to wear a patriotic look but I also wanted a laid back vibe and I totally think the baseball cap and converse were the key to achieving this. What are you wearing to celebrate Independence day??

xo, Rach
