This New Year it’s all about keeping it fresh and organized! My biggest resolution is to be as organized as possible and buying a planner was the first thing on my to-do list. My best friend has been bragging about her new Lilly Pulitzer planner from the moment she got it and finally I gave in and purchased my very own. Organizing should always be fun and this adorable planner will give you the urge to pencil in every detail and event happening this year!
So this past week I have been at numerous outdoor parties and it really got me thinking about good ideas and tips that will have ALL the aunties raving at your next BBQ.
In this day and age recycling in my opinion is very crucial but also beneficial. Glass jars can be a great accessory to your outdoor party whether your using them as glass lanterns, glasses or whatever brilliant idea comes your way. Bottom line is to ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS recycle your glass jars you never know when you’ll need them. (spaghetti sauce jars, pickle jars, fruit jam jars, etc.)
The rest of these ideas I discovered off of pinterest and had to share!
the key to throwing a great BBQ or outdoor event is in the way you display your food! Appearance is key to throwing a great party.

Whenever I’m going out, I try to be as Boho as I can whether I’m at the beach or running errand. I love to spend my summer nights relaxing with my family or friends and I feel like this look really relates to the vibe. The boho look is probably the most comfortable, summer friendly look you can go for. I love how this look can be loose yet perfectly fitted. I’m nowhere near close to being hippie or alternative but for some reason I love tribal prints and vintage looks.
I love headbands especially at the beach. They’re a great tool to prevent your hair from blowing in your face! This accessory can look good anywhere and being brown it makes us look extra chic because I’m pretty sure we invented the whole head piece look.
Maxi dresses are great for summer boho looks and are very modest. A lot of people feel like they can’t pull off maxi dresses due to the misconception that you have to be tall to pull off the look. I’m here to put an end to the rumors. Nicole Richie, aka queen of Boho is only 5’0 and if you ask me she looks pretty chic in her white maxi; not only are maxi dresses cute but also they’re very comfy and perfect for any summer event.

I’ve been looking for easy fashion do it yourself looks and I couldn’t think of something more easy yet summer chic at the same time! This look can be dressed up with a pencil skirt or slacks or even a cute and quick look for the gym or running errands. The best part about this trend is that everyone can have it! The front tie look is easy, all you need to do is cut a small slit through the front of a big T-shirt or tank. I love this trend mainly because I’m a petite and finding an XS or S is the hardest thing right next to opening a glass jar of tomato pickle. So buying a size medium or large tank is no problemo in my case.

I think by far my favorite color blocking combo is yellow and teal. They’re both beautiful colors as it is and together they look unstoppable. I love seeing people pair the colors together whether it be a yellow top or dress and big teal statement necklace. Never be to matchy, matchy always be bold and fashion forward!

Xoxo JHM ps sorry for the gap! Expect your fashion updates every day:)
I’ve been loving the color white mainly because it gives off a classy yet relaxed vibe. I’d also like to say that the White Hot Miami Heat’s victory inspired me…but lets be real. I think that white instills images of relaxation and peace. Whatever my reasoning, here are some “must have” white essentials that can be dressed up and dressed down.
