Getting to dress up in a theme is one of my favorite things to do, and the 4th of July is one of the best holidays for that. In DC, it’s already heating up and I’m trying to figure out how to wear as little as possible while still representing that red, white, and blue. I’m especially excited that I get to celebrate with my army guy since he’ll have returned to me. (EEK! He’ll be home Friday/ Saturday and I CANNOT WAIT!)

While his outfit is probably consisting of either this shirt or these shorts I picked up for him the last time he was away, I haven’t figured mine out. I kind of want to wear this dress or this one, but I can’t find either. I’m starting to think there’s a troll in my closet eating my clothes- either that or there’s a purple bin I haven’t touched since I moved in. REGARDLESS- what is this patriotic princess to do?

If you’re trying to figure out an insta-worthy outfit on a budget, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite pieces under $50 to help get you started. I can’t wait to see all that red, white, and blue!

We’re all familiar with that one line from Devil Wears Prada:

Yes- florals are all over for spring and yes this isn’t exactly new news, but I can’t help but love a good flower print this time of year. It doesn’t even have to be a print, tbh. Anything flowery to celebrate that small amount of time we get between too cold and too hot is a good thing.

Besides that, it’s be relatively dreary out. April showers are supposed to bring May flowers… but showers it is. And has been for what seems like an eternity. Even this past weekend, DC was treated to mostly showers and cool weather, keeping this salty biotch out of the pool and shopping instead. I guess that’s a sign that it’s time for me to start making my own sunshine, or flowers as the case may be.

Sometimes it’s important to shut that fashion magazine full of skinny models – you know, the one that you enjoy reading while having a sip of your favorite coffee – and to embrace the reality of who you are. First of all, you are beautiful, don’t trust what fashion magazines tell you. You don’t need to be a size zero to look and feel amazing. And unless you are morbidly obese, you don’t need to go on a diet to love yourself. Now if losing weight is what you want, nobody is stopping you. But if the only reason to lose weight is to feel good about yourself, and especially if there is no medical reasoning behind your diet, then you need to look for other solutions.

Embrace The Fitness Appeal

As odd as it might sound, exercising actually releases endorphin, which is the happiness hormone. It’s not about sweating the excess fat off, but about getting a fit and strong body – which is not the same thing than a skinny body –, and genuinely being happy in your skin. This might need a bit of practice at first, but all you need is to pick fitness gear that motivates you. If you’re one for the pink fashion, embrace the fitness girl power with sparkles, colorful tops, and fancy kicks. You will find that the motivation of wearing fashion fitness clothes will keep you coming back and discovering the key to your inner balance. You can find plenty of activities that are guaranteed to boost your mood, from yoga to Zumba, via power walking. No need to sweat at the gym and to compare your body to those of regular members anymore: Good mood guaranteed.

Clever Non-Invasive Treatments

Feeling good is not only about endorphin hormone. Sometimes, it’s about actually seeing a difference and finding a body that you can love again. When dieting and heavy fitness programs don’t work, you have one more solution before considering an invasive surgical operation: You can find effective body contouring treatments at a dermatologist. From a freezing approach that targets the fat cells with cooling treatments to an ultrasound device that stimulates collagen growth in your face, there are many techniques to address the problems you might be struggling with. But the results are real, and you can begin to notice the differences within a few weeks.

Dress Your Shape

It’s not your weight that matters; it’s your shape. And you’d be surprised to know that most women can’t dress for their shape. Dressing for your shape requires you to understand whether your body is pear, apple, hourglass shaped, and how to maximize your sexy features and to hide the bits and bobs that you dislike. This might need some body measurements, but it’s only to help you feel and look good in your clothes.

Be Loved And Love Back

There’s nothing like love to make you feel beautiful. Whether it’s a partner, a spouse, or a trusted group of friends, surrounding yourself with positive statements and emotions, is the best way to be good in your skin.

Last year, on Little Bitty City One, I did a guift guide for the Rose Quartz + Serenity, the Pantone color(s) of the year for 2016. This was by far my most popular gift guide last year  and the pink/ blue is one of my favorite color combos of all time. I was so psyched waiting for this year’s color to be announced. Then greenery happened, and I was not so psyched. While I love myself a good hunter or olive, greenery is a little yellow for my complexion and certainly not as easy to wear as last year’s dreamy pastel combo. I wasn’t excited about greenery at all and was debating on creating the last gift guide I’d had scheduled for months. But then I did a little bit of research and I guess Pantone knew what we all needed…

A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

I am a firm believer in the power of objects + symbolism to impact your day to day life. My biggest goal in 2017 is to become more fiscally responsible, so feel like maybe the color of the year being about the color of money is a good sign for me. This could all be nonsense, but why not, right? So I decided to give greenery a go and create a gift guide. On the subject of being fiscally responsible, all of my greenery picks are under $50. So here we are to close out the year with a new color- what do you think of greenery?
