Happy Friday!  Something about this sweet time of year always has me feeling nostalgic about all things Americana.  I'm not sure if it's from all those summers of childhood when days were filled with backyard sunbathing, townwide parades, bike rides and barbecues and all things 80s or what, but come July the colors red, white and blue always show up in my daily rotation.  Today's post is dedicated to those fond memories and is my grown-up take on the American Beauty.  This swimsuit is the perfect example of the classic and elegant choice of 'what to wear' poolside.  I love the scalloped detail and halter neckline.   And the touch of ruching at the bustline allow it to be just alluring enough while still being a one piece.  You know me and cute dresses and these two (here and here) are some welcome new additions to my summer must-have list.  Can you find a pair of slides more glamorous than these? I saw them once and instantly fell in love, haha.  A wear-them-everywhere pair of cotton wide leg pants and a great pair of sunnies are all that's left to round out this summer holiday look.  I love how it's a lot of elegance and a bit of Americana all rolled into one.  

What are you all wanting to wear lately?  I'd love to hear all about your must-haves too!  Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend...I can't wait to enjoy more of those summer sunsets that have been sooooo incredibly gorgeous lately.  Have fun everyone!!
