Guest post - {av} of {long distance loving}

Hi! My name is {av}--and on most days, you can find me blogging at {long distance loving}!
I'm so excited to be guest posting here at Mo-Pie, Please! Not only is the beautiful lady behind it a Friday's Fancies faithful, she's also a Midwesterner with a gorgeous kitty named Gus. Why does that matter? Because I'm a born-and-raised Midwesterner {now on the East Coast} with a pretty kitty of my own also named Gus. The best part? They look eerily similar! All of these funny coincidences behind, I've always admired Meagan's style and am so honored to appear on the pages of her stunning blog!

Since the holiday weekend is upon us, I wanted to incorporate the red+white+blue theme subtly into an outfit I think Meagan could totally rock as she moves to one of my favorite cities :) It's an outfit I'd like to deem "All-American Moving Day" chic! I hope you like it!

1) In the heat of a Midwestern summer, a cotton top like this Chambray Stripe Top from Splendid is absolutely necessary. I liked the fact the stripes were a bit more subtle too!
2) Kate Spade never ceases to bring a smile to my face and this Pocomo Gwen Bag didn't disappoint. It's the perfect size for throwing in the moving truck--and you wouldn't want to lose track of it because it is so stinkin' cute.
3) The length and the cuff of these Textile Elizabeth and James Nell Mid-Rise Stretch-Denim Shorts made them an appropriate choice for this get-up. Most moving day attire isn't fashionable, but these shorts would still keep you from the "what not to wear" column.
4) With the humidity, this Tasha Studded Suede Headband would work wonders at keeping the frizz under control. It's far from boring and works splendidly with the bag and the sandals too!
5) Though they may not be the most functional for moving, these Sam Edelman Gigi Saddle Leather Sandals were too hard to pass up. Sweet and simple, they look great without much effort.
6) To top off the All-American vibe, I had to throw an ounce of red in the outfit via this Nikon Time Teller P Watch. It's bright and bold and creates a killer contrast from the leather.

How are you celebrating the Fourth of July?
Do you like to rock the red+white+blue at other times too?

Thanks again to Meagan for having me today! 
I'm crossing fingers the move goes off without a hitch :)
I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend... xoxo {av}
