Woo Hoo! It's Red, White & Blue: Tank + Cutoffs + Espadrille Flats {& an Independence Day Giveaway!}

Monday, June 30, 2014


It's nearly the Fourth of July, party people! It's going to be a HOT one here in Phoenix (per usual). I plan on wearing the same type of outfit I wear every year: extremely casual and partially patriotic, much like today's post. Do you wear a themed outfit for the 4th or is that not cool anymore? I never know with you kids these days.

Speaking of you kids, I think that you all deserve a giveaway to celebrate July! Luckily for you, the kind folks over at Skip N' Whistle agree, and they are generously giving away one of their adorable printed tanks to a LunaVida reader. Enter at the end of this post for your chance to win!

Hey there!  There are so many fun puns to make when it comes to trendy midriff-baring t-shirts (AKA "crop tops").  I was going over possible titles for this blog post, and there were just so many solid options that came to mind.  For example: "Lean With It, Crop With It" or perhaps "Croppin' and Rollin'" ooor even "Crop Circles" ... No?  Okay.  No more puns for me.  (Just kidding.  That will never happen, because nothing makes me laugh harder than a terrible pun.  So they're staying!)

Remember me?  Yeah, it's me, Allie.  I write this here blog that you're currently reading.  You wouldn't know it though since I've been seriously M.I.A. -- and for that, I am sincerely sorry!  Things have just been so adult-like busy, which is a lame excuse, but it's the truth.  The good news though?  One of those things that's been keeping me away from LunaVida is something that Matt & I have been dreaming of for many years.  Want to know what it is?  Oh, ya know... we've just been planning a glorious 11 day European vacation for the end of this summer!!!  That's all, so NBD... ;)  JK, I AM SO PSYCHED!!!!!

Matt & I have always wanted to plan a grand trip to Europe together, but it just hasn't ever worked out due to a variety of things, ranging from school/work schedules to money to everyday obligations to everything else in between.  Until now, of course.  We finally have the funds saved, the PTO scheduled, and (most importantly) the flights booked!  Come this September, we will be traveling around Italy for a few days before heading over to Mykonos, Santorini, and ending in Athens, Greece.  We are beyond excited, because this is literally our DREAM VACATION.  I.  Cannot.  Wait.

Will you forgive me for being so neglectful lately?  Pretty please?  I apologize!  Life just gets so darn crazy sometimes, right?  But that's what vacations are for -- to keep you sane :)  Where are you headed this summer?

Hello there! Summertime is so close you can taste it, people.  Out here in the desert, the temps have been a-climbin' and a-climbin' -- big time.  It's already to the point that it is consistently over 100 degrees in Phoenix (and I mean, seriously, on the reg)... Why did I move here again?  [I kid, I kid!]
