Anyone else still feel like it’s March? I know it’s hard to believe but the Fourth of July is right around the corner! This dress is the perfect red for the fourth and so easy to wear, it can easily take you from an outdoor BBQ to fireworks at the end of the night and you will be comfortable the whole time! For me, it’s so important to have clothes that I can easily chase my girls around in and this dress fits the bill perfectly!
These cupcakes are so fun and festive and would be a great addition to any fourth celebration! I used my Tandy Cake recipe as the base for the cupcakes and Swiss Meringue Buttercream for the frosting. Regular buttercream would be just as good (and easier to make!) but I just really love how light and fluffy this particular buttercream is! If you have the time and patience I highly recommend it! I’ve been experimenting with different piping tips and I still need a lot of practice but at least it’s delicious practice!
A few of my blogger friends and I have gotten together to style this same dress! We are starting a hashtag for #chicineveryshade by following this hashtag you can see the same pieces styled by a variety of women with varying skin tones! I am so proud to be a part of the first month of this initiative and look forward to see how it progresses month to month!Emily from The Mod Mama | Laura from Have Need Want | Emily from One Southern Belle | Archana from Mrs Kapoor | Shreya from Luxury Belle | Vanessa from Vanessa Alyson
