Now that the blog is all refreshed, I’m excited to start giving you more fun content! At the start of each season you can expect a Seasonal Style post from yours truly that inspires you in decorating your home and in your personal style. I believe that style translates not only into what you wear but also into how you “dress” your home. I often feel my decor style is a reflection of my personal style and overall aesthetic.
Today I’m sharing my favorite Red, White and Blue- Patriotic items with you because it’s finally that time of year again! The time when the days are long and warm, drenched in sun and quenched by lemonade. The dog days of summer are finally approaching! You won’t hear my complain about the heat. It feels so good to feel warm for a change. It was a long winter and I know if you’re like me (AKA not a fan of cold and snow) you’re just as excited to celebrate the start of summer! When summer does finally roll around, I love to get in the spirit of all the Patriotic holidays from Memorial Day, Flag Day and July 4th!
In the summer I love adding a few navy & red touches through out my home and in my wardrobe as well. I’m a huge fan of patterns like stripes, stars, plaids, gingham and all things classic preppy that come along with summer!
For my home I like to add a few flags of course. I stick them in planters or vases on the table top. A couple fun wreaths also add those patriotic vibes. I have two entrance doors that I like using two different style wreaths so it isn’t overly match-y match-y. I made this grapevine wreath with materials from Michaels. They are so easy to make! All you need is:
a white, red and blue hydrangea, a pretty patriotic ribbon, a flag, glue gun and floral wire.
I’m also a sucker for seasonal pillows! You guys know I go crazy for the Target dollar spot ones. Here is a seasonal decorating trick, sometimes you can re-use decor from different holidays. For example pillows from other seasons can be repurposed as long as the colors tie in! You may remember these grain sack stripe pillows from Christmas, yup they’re back! The red ties in perfectly for this time of year with navy and white!
The Pillows in the above photo are all fro Target dollar spot. However I’m going to link some that I’m loving this season. The farmhouse jugs/planters are from Lowes in the garden section. I planted some beautiful smelling lavender. I move these around all over my patio. Here I used them to add some green to the photo and bench.

You guys know I LOVE decorating my front door for every season. This year I’m testing out a wood curl wreath (pictured behind me) I love the texture it adds! I’m going to link some similar ones below as I wasn’t able to find this exact one online. My ferns are so easy to take care of and do well in our climate. I always have my black iron lanterns out because they tie in so nicely with my antique black door hardware and I just love the shape/scale of them. Click here for my exact lanterns.
So maybe you are wondering more about the cute dress? I found this perfect affordable summer dress I had to pass on to you. I like that it’s super comfy and light weight for the hot summer days ahead.
I’m loving the layered door mat look as I shared with you on Instagram stories awhile back. I haven’t got around to purchasing a “patriotic” version. See friends I’m not always a step ahead, as hard as I try to be! I really hope you liked this Seasonal Style post. Let me know if it inspires you to get any red, white or blue going in your wardrobe or home decor this summer? Keep in mind if you are ever stumped as to how to decorate for your home take a cue from you closet, is there a color you always gravitate towards of a pattern you love? Start with that as a jumping off point. If you don’t see a common theme look to the current season for inspiration to dress up your home and your wardrobe too!
