Oh cobalt blue, you never do me wrong.  It was Mawmaw’s favorite color, my mom’s favorite color and it’s also mine.  I’ve said it about 100 times before in different blog posts, but I love it because it’s so flattering on basically every skin tone.  Cobalt blue makes you look so tan and healthy.

This dress is such a great find.  It’s a great price ($52) and it’s a shift style, so it’s a super forgiving cut.  If you want to hide your midsection, this style is perfect.  The cutout shoulder detail is really fun, but you do need to wear a strapless bra.  Bra straps aren’t a cute look, girl.

These photos were taken in Rosemary Beach, Florida during our vacation.  We snapped these on our way to grab dinner.  We had such an awesome week in 30A.  I plan on putting together a full recap post of our vacation with all details soon.  For now, we’re driving up the West Coast, so be sure to follow along on our journey on my Snapchat: @Angelalanter.

Man, have I missed y’all!  In case you didn’t see, we were in Ohio for 13 days and now we’re in Florida vacationing.  It was a very long past two weeks and our vacation was much needed with the changes we have coming up.  I’ll do a post soon about everything we’ve gone through and the journey we’re about to embark on.  For now, let’s keep things light since it’s the Fourth of July!

We’re staying on 30A which is on the Florida Panhandle.  It’s easily my favorite beach town(s) in the world.  I’m planning on doing a full vacation recap and review of the different restaurants, our accomodations and things to do, so stay tuned for that.

Today’s look is a swim coverup that is totally on trend with the whole palm leaf (or banana leaf) print trend.  It’s not a maxi dress (the slit is sky high!) but could be worn as a dress if you pair it with something underneath so you’re not telling everyone your story when the wind blows the skirt up over your head, or when you sit down.  It’s currently ON SALE for 50% off, which makes it only $23, so grab one before it sells out!

Fourth of July has always been a fun holiday in my family because it’s summertime!  In Ohio, the colder month holidays were great, but the summer holidays couldn’t be beat.  You get such a short few months of good weather, so we fully lived every moment of summer.  We would usually spend the 4th swimming at my Uncle’s house and watch him set off fireworks.  It was the best because he would laugh and laugh the whole time he set them off, he got such a kick out of it…  And you couldn’t help but crack up laughing at him laughing, LOL!

Last year we were living in Mobile, AL for Matt’s new movie USS Indianapolis Men of Courage, so we drove down to Seaside, FL for the day and that’s where I got my first taste of 30A…  I’ll never look back!  So here we are, one year later and back on 30A and loving it!

Let’s be sure to take a minute to remember what the 4th of July is all about…  It’s our great country’s birthday.  We are so blessed with opportunities that others in the world will never know.  Never take for granted the greatest gift our ancestors passed along through the generations, the gift of freedom.  We’re living in the land of free and the home of the brave.

I want to kick off this post with a sincere thank you for all the sweet comments, emails and Snapchats about my last blog post talking about my current skin issues due to hormonal problems.  Clearly I’m not the first woman to have this problem, so I really appreciate each of you taking the time to give me suggestions and tips from your own experiences.  Y’all are seriously the best, Gorgeous Fam!

The past two Sundays, Matt & I have made the drive out to Malibu to spend the day with friends.  There’s just something about a day spent at the beach.  There’s one major difference about East and West Coast beaches that you don’t realize until you’ve experienced both…  The temperature.  It just seems to always feel chilly in Malibu to me, especially at night.  Actually at night, it’s just downright cold!  So if you opened this post and thought, “Why the heck is she wearing so many layers at the beach?!”  It’s because you really do need at least a sweater this time of year in Malibu.

On the past two Sundays, we saw a school of dolphins swim right past us both days.  I’ve always dreamed of swimming with dolphins, so seeing them in the ocean is always super exciting for me.  🙂

I’m loving this fringe cardigan for cool summer nights because it has an oversized fit, which I love.  The fringing detail goes all the way across the back, which is a really cute touch.  This sweater is under $50 and is fab quality, so I highly suggest grabbing one because it will transition perfectly for Fall.

I know I’ve talked about these moccasins several times, but y’all…  I’m obsessed.  These are seriously the most comfy pair of flats I’ve ever owned.  The quality is incredible, they’re so soft and they come in a ton of different color options.  If you haven’t checked them out, please do so.  They’re honestly worth every penny.
