july 4th favorites


Literally this summer is flying by, I cannot believe that July 4th is only a couple weeks away! July 4th is one of my favorite holidays, not only because we get to celebrate our freedom and the amazing blessing it is to be a part of this country, but also because it’s a day where I get to spend time with friends and family.


Usually on this holiday we spend the day by the pool or the lake, have a cookout with burgers and yummy sides, make some drinks and just relax and enjoy the summer heat. You can’t beat it!


Today I wanted to show ya’ll some of my festive favorites for the July 4th holiday! Backcountry is my go-to spot to find outdoor gear, poolside essentials, bikinis, cover-ups and more, and they helped me stock my cart for the holiday weekend. They are literally a one-stop-shop for everything you need AND they are having a big July 4th sale right now where you can save up to 40% off top outdoor gear & apparel from June 21st through July 5th! You can use my code LAURENKS15 to get 15% your purchase for first time shoppers! (exclusions do apply)

I know that over July 4th weekend I will be rotating through all of the pieces you see below as we jump in and out of the lake and change throughout the day. I love how all of these items give you a classic “Americana” vibe without being too blatantly red, white and blue. You can click any image in the collage to shop!

Wait there’s more – keep reading to find out the 5 items that I will definitely have with me over July 4th weekend! The five products listed below are lake trip / beach trip / pool day essentials that will totally simplify your holiday weekend.
