I came across this patriotic ice cream cone button-down in the men’s section of Urban Outfitter’s website, and of course I had to add this baby to my cart immediately.

Compartes “American Dream” Rice Krispy Treats, $9.95

If you know me, you know I have a soft spot for pretty packaging and sweet treats. So it’s no surprise that I’m obsessed with LA-based chocolate company, Compartes. Their “American Dream” bar is made with dark chocolate and crispy puffed rice. Basically a fancy-ass rice crispy treat. Look, anytime I can eat a rice crispy treat and feel highbrow, I’M IN.

HVN Firework Print Dress, $604.95

Matches Fashion
This firework print sundress is probably the classiest 4th of July-themed outfit I’ve ever seen. The price is a bit out of my BBQ budget, so in the meantime owning this dress will just have to be my American dream.

Anna Buckley/HelloGiggles
Nothing says summertime like a pair of denim espadrilles with a bottle of mustard and a hotdog on ‘em.

BC Footwear Slides, $70


I am in love with everything tasseled (tassels are the new pom poms). These sandals are perfect for that 4th of July party you’re going to this week, or really any other day of the week. They’re adorable, they’re comfy, and they’re a cool price of $70.

American Eagle

The cutouts in this red one-piece are divine — just don’t forget sunscreen.

bareMinerals Gen Nude Liquid Lipstick in “Swank,” $18


Bare Minerals has a collection of liquid lipsticks that are straight up gorgeous. My fave right now, courtesy of Beauty Editor Marie Lodi, is “Swank,” a deep plum color you’ll love if you’re over plain reds.
