Today marks the beginning of a long weekend and one of my favorite American holidays. I love celebrating 4th of July with style and class. This year I decided to collaborate with the amazing Colombian sisters from Tinseldot and create an amazing DIY project. I am sure you all have noticed those amazing floppy hats with cursive letter messages in Instagram. We decided to create our own version of the popular hat with an Independence day theme. The summer hat is the perfect statement for any outfit. This fourth of July make a statement and create a stylish hat that screams red, white & blue.

Be creative as you wish and mix/match fabrics to create a summer hat of your choice. Each of us chose a message that spoke to us. I went for the American Dreamer quote because I am a dreamer at heart. I am day dreaming all the time and take my dreams very seriously. Cat and Jules from Tinseldot helped me create the perfect summer hat using materials from Joann’s Fabric.

On the left Cat is wearing a beautiful dress from Zara featuring the off the shoulder trend. I love styling this dress with a choker or scarf to make the shoulders more pronounced and noticeable. On the right we see Jules rocking a one shoulder denim dress. Denim is on trend for this season and stronger than ever. I decided to wear a classic romper with stripes and detailed slits on the sides. I love black and white for the summer and this look is perfect for brunch and your endless summer activities. 6N5A95786N5A94306N5A9479IMG_8245Tinseldot create fun and classy DIY projects for the modern and urban woman.

    What a festive post – those hats are terrific and I love those summery dresses! But seriously, how do you stay “sweat-free” on a South Florida July afternoon? I’m missing that magic gene!
