Fourth of July Summer Fashion!

Wow, does anyone else feel like you blinked and suddenly you’re standing in the middle of summer?  It seems we were just talking about the Colors of the Year back in February, and now it’s time to talk summer fashion!  The Fourth of July is just around the corner, so if you’re looking for some patriotic apparel to celebrate the land of the free, check out our top picks from our latest arrivals!

It’s always fun to mix and match, but what could be more fun than sporting a matched set playsuit?  The light chambray fabric has a weathered look with frayed seam detail and delicate white embroidery with a Native American-inspired tribal pattern.  We love the sporty and laid-back appeal to this feminine ensemble, and it’s the perfect answer to “What am I going to wear?” to celebrate the 4th!

Maybe it’s just because I’m an ’80s baby, but nothing says “summer” to me like tie dye!  This cut-out shoulder top is very on-trend for 2016, and the soft, oversized fabric will keep you breezy at those outdoor celebrations.  The Shibori tie dye pattern is reminiscent of our grand ol’ flag with horizontal blocks of red, white, and blue.  Pair with your favorite white jeans or shorts for some funky summer fun!

If you want to sport your patriotic colors with a more creative expression, this gorgeous top will give you a little splash of variety!  The mint background beautifully features red ranunculus and blue cornflowers in an elegant pattern.  If you’re looking for a slightly more formal look for your holiday, check out this print in a lovely and simple sleeveless dress!

You just can’t get better than simple, clean, classic white.  A thin white cotton dress is the South’s LBD – versatile, classic, and COMFORTABLE!  Let’s face it, in this humid heat, you’ve gotta have some comfort.  The Gracee dress may be my favorite item of our summer collection with it’s off-the-shoulder neckline and eyelet detail on the ruffled sleeves and scalloped hem.  It’s the perfect combination of elegance and casual comfort for an outdoor celebration!

Well, we kept it short and sweet today, y’all, but those are my favorite Walker picks for the summer holiday.  Tell us your July  4th celebration plans in the comments below!  

~ A note from the author, Sydney: Some of the most unforgettable summer memories are made over this special holiday.  The hallmarks of my July usually involve watermelon, fireworks, boiled peanuts, and Coca-Cola.  Sometimes it’s easy to just focus on the dead heat and scent of bug spray (let’s be honest), but I hope your holiday is special this year with memories made with family and friends, and a sacred moment to recognize the sacrifices men and women have made for our 240 years of precious freedom.  Don’t let the day go by without thanking someone who has sacrificed their normalcy, their finances, their time with family, or that last full measure of devotion, their lives.  Semper Fi.

Finding the perfect gift is as much a challenge as it was the years before, and it seems that the hunt for it has become as much of a holiday tradition as decorating the Christmas tree and watching our favorite holiday movies.  Why is it that the most difficult people to shop for are those we know best?  It’s easy to put in $10 and 10 minutes of thought for that office Christmas party present.  But selecting the perfect gift for your mom?  Sister?  Or wife?  Fuhgedaboudit.  And when you really want to give something thoughtful and personal to the woman you love that represents her personality, there stretches before you a vast and mysterious ocean of possibilities!

How To Show Generosity This Christmas

What words come to mind when you try to describe the Christmas spirit?  For me, hope and generosity are two of the hallmarks of everything we feel during the season that inspires us to feel grateful and share our joy.  Without hope, we dare not dream for the future; and without a reason to hope, we shrink into a small world that only revolves around ourselves.  But more than any other time of year, Christmas reminds us of the hope that was given to us in a little town called Bethlehem, and the generosity of grace that was poured out in a place called Calvary.  This Christmas, we hope to inspire you with some ideas on how to let your generosity flow out onto strangers who need a little hope this Christmas… if you’re looking for ways to donate and bless others in your community, here are our top three ideas for December!
