Red wine...and blue

It's almost time to get all patriotic and rock some bold primaries in honor of America. The 4th is one of my favorite holidays - maybe it's the late summer nights with good food and lots of light or maybe it's fond memories of throwing our annual 4th of July bash and lighting off fireworks growing up, either way I'm excited as always.

Today I'm bringing you my 4th of July look alongside some of my favorite wine accessories since drinking ice cold white wine while watching fireworks is my other favorite part of the 4th. You guys know I'm a huge wino - especially if you've watched my Instagram stories - so here are some of my wine faves then I'll tell you all about this outfit (or your can SHOP IT now if that's all you're here for).

Wine-sipping outdoors is probably my favorite summer activity, so you bet I'll have an ice cold glass of white wine in hand when the fireworks begin. I love all things wine, so I have a fairly extensive collection of wine accessories but here are a few of my wine glass and accessory essentials when it comes to being a wino in the summer.

Wine Glasses

My go-to for summertime glassware has to be a wine tumbler. It keeps it perfectly cold and with a lid it's safe from bugs and spilling - especially since I'm usually juggling a toddler on any outdoor adventure.

I first fell in love with tumblers last year when I snagged a couple stainless steel glasses from Target. I used them all summer, the only downside being that they don't have lids and they're no longer in stock. This year I'm really into this pearly white version from Corkcicle. You can shop some more of my favorite picks here - including a custom monogramed version:

 

 

Wine Accessories

W like my white wine super cold, and in the summer my pick is usually white or rose - I leave red for snuggling up under a blanket in the winter. My first essential for keeping my wine super cold is the Corkcicle. It looks just like an icicle and fits right into your bottle of wine to chill it from the inside out. When it's time to pour, the little cork lid comes off to let it flow.

My next trick for ice cold wine is, well...ice. I use whisky rocks in my wine to keep it super chilled. They are basically large ice cubes which means they dont melt as fast and if you want to make some you can snag this tray set. If ice in your wine is a new concept to you, I promise you won't be disappointed. Some might say it waters it down, but I suppose I'm drinking it fast enough where that hasn't been an issue. 🙂 If you want a similar effect without the actual ice, you can also snag these stainless steel whiskey stones which are amazing for chilling without diluting.

When it comes to an everyday essential, I love this rabbit wine opener - it's super simple to use. If you need something that makes it even easier, this electronic corkscrew is also a hit. Finally for on-the-go sipping, you can snag this adorable wine picnic bag which serves 4. If you need a simpler option, go with this canteen which can hold up to two bottles of wine.

There are oh-so-many wine accessories out there for the vino lover, but here are just a few go-to's. Some are everyday staples and others are just perfect for summer sipping:

4th of July Look

Because I'm a huge fan of pattern mixing rocking a red white and blue floral top (similar one here) with some super fun & light stripped pants (similar here and here). Luckily Denver isn't super hot and summer evenings can even get breezy so pants are my pick. If you're in a place that really heats up and for sure need a shorts option, try these or these. I paired these with a flowy white kimono that has super cute crochet trim - it's under $25 an a perfect summer snag.

I'm rocking gold & cork wedges which are my go-to from last year - basically this style but with gold like these. Accessory-wise, I've got my tassel earrings (similar here) which are a summer statement staple, but these are giving me all the firework inspo. You can scroll down for a few more outfit picks, or hop down to shop this look + all the similar styles I've linked.
