Happy Birthday America! We’re spending the holiday weekend at the lake and until the rain has passed today I figured I’d share a quick round-up. So take a 5 minute escape.. then get back out there and celebrate with burgers/beers/beach/friends/family orĀ any other way you want! Enjoy your Fourth of July friends and thanks for stopping by šŸ™‚

– I shared a few ideas for Fourth of July style and I think this look (in almost head to toe ASOS) is by far my favorite. There’s a few sizes left in the stripedĀ off-the-shoulder top I’m wearing, but hurry because it’s now on sale!

– Need help packing the next time you take a weekend getaway? I’ve got beach and city carry-ons covered.

– Speaking of packing things up, I’ve been carrying this striped raffia tote everywhere since Spring and this weekend only, you can get one free if you spend over $350 at Elaine Turner!

– If you really want to make your red, white and blues pop – I tried Stila All-Day Lipstick in Beso for the first time (via an exclusive Birchbox set) and it’s the most perfect red lipstick I’ve ever tried. And trust me, I’ve tried a lot.

– By this point you know how much I loveĀ Sole SocietyĀ (my shoes & accessories go-to) and their Fourth of July sale includes lots of my current faves, like this oversized hat and these perfect ankle booties.

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale (that magic time of year when they put new FALL goods on sale for a limited time) starts in less than 2 weeks, but FYI if you’re a Rewards card member you can get first access starting this Thursday!

Pinterest Inspiration: Bedroom Decor Makeover

One of the things that I’ve been meaning to get around to this year is re-decorating our bedroom. With the lease signed for another year, the space has been begging for a bit of a fresh update. If you follow me on snapchat (thesteelemaiden) than you already know I picked up a light sage-y green paint for a statement wall, but for the rest I’ve been pulling from my Pinterest to get an idea of what I’d like to keep and what I’d like to update. Below, my current plans, and stay tuned as I share the results!

The Steele Maiden: Tips for working out on vacation with Lucy activewear

As we head into the Summer months (and ahem.. bathing suit season), I find myself traveling more and more. And it’s easy to let vacations or long weekends away throw you off your fitness game. Which is precisely why I never travel without my sneakers and a few key pieces of activewear.

The Steele Maiden: 5 Minute Escape to Veneto, Italy

I’m off on a little adventure this weekend – and while not as colorful as this pretty little strip in Veneto, Italy – it is on the water and that’s enough for me. A few other things on my radar right now… (more…)
