Pop Fizz Chat: 4th of July Weekend | 6.30

A weekly series dedicated to everything from life, travel and fashion Q&A, sale finds, weekend updates, sneak peeks and more!

Pop Fizz Chat Fashion Q&A


A little travel, life and fashion Q&A. I want to answer them ALL.

I’m thinking about filing to be an LLC. Do you have a separate bank account for your business?
Congrats! That’s a really exciting step — and a huge one too! As of right now, I do not have a separate bank account, but I’m in the process of opening one. I need to apply for an extra documentation that allows me to do business in New York, so I’m waiting for that to process. I figured it would be beneficial for me to really separate my personal income and spending from my business income and spending. It’ll hold myself accountable when it comes to being a responsible adult. Maybe.

I’m going to NYC with my family at the end of July and looking for some inexpensive things to wear. What are your recommendations?
Definitely lightweight clothes. It’s going to be pretty hot here, so I’d highly recommend shorts with tanks (love this striped one). Oh and obviously easy, breezy dresses like this one! Comfortable flats are a must – and they can still be fashionable like this pair (which are 50% off).


Here’s what I’m loving, buying and eyeing!

As always, a big part of my days are spent browsing online. With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coming up (check out the catalog here), I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for the amount of Fall shopping that’s about to happen. That’s another story for another day, because I definitely am already so overwhelmed by the Nordstrom sale. And I’m sure you all are too (especially if you’re a blogger). Basically, SOS. Anyway, until then, I’m going to continue buying perfect summer dresses (like the ones below) and hats. OMG, ALL OF THE HATS. I honestly cannot stop buying hats. Even when I think I don’t need one, something inside my brain tells me to buy it anyway…because ya know, they’re all so different.

Also, Ann Taylor is having a huge 50% off sale for the holiday weekend, and I went a little overboard last night. I couldn’t resist. 50% off?! That’s basically free!


A little recap on readers’ favorite posts from the past few days and weeks.

Still getting an AMAZING response from my post about drama in the blogging community. Your support really doesn’t go unnoticed!

Weekend plans, anyone?

This weekend is not going to be the typical 4th of July weekend for me. Tomorrow AM, Allie and I are waking up SUPER early to go shoot somewhere (Hint: It’s ALWAYS crowded). I actually am not super positive about the rest of our weekend plans. Matt and I will probably go up to Westchester for a day or so or even go up to Rhode Island to his aunt’s summer house. YEP, BACK TO RHODE ISLAND. I actually LOVE it there. Our weekend in Newport travel guide should be up either next Monday or Tuesday…so stay tuned!

I want to know YOUR 4th of July weekend plans though, I know they’ve gotta be fun!


Ah, the jet set life…where to next?

Nashville is OFFICIALLY booked. We just booked our Airbnb and July will be here before we know it…tomorrow. I can’t believe I’m turning 25 in July, and I’m actually kind of excited about it! 24 was so good to me, but I have a feeling 25 will be even better. I’m definitely looking forward to going to Nashville with my girlfriends for a fun weekend of honky tonks, good food, and Southern charm! Now, I’ll be impatiently counting down the days. WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR?!


A few of my favorite blog posts (and articles) from this week!

I hope you enjoy this Pop! Fizz! Chat! fashion Q&A series as much I enjoy writing and researching for it. If you ever have a question you’d like me to answer, feel free to shoot me an email, tweet me, send me a DM on Instagram, or ask it anonymously here!

    Yay for being an LLC!! I have a separate bank account and love it. Definitely helps a lot. Also, obsessed with Liz’s maxi dress + adorable sunnies. Have a great weekend lady!
