The 4th of July is actually the inspiration behind the Jennifer Babydoll Dress. I wanted a cute navy gingham print mini dress that I could wear off the shoulder to a 4th of July party and other summer events so I partnered with Gibsonlook to create the perfect babydoll dress.

Our heart shaped sunglasses are only $8!

The Jennifer Babydoll Dress is fun, flirty and so chic with a smocked bust and statement puff sleeves. I designed it so that the puff sleeves can be worn on or off the shoulder and both ways look so flattering on the arms and neckline. I know this will be a go-to dress for parties, summer trips, date nights, wedding festivities and so much more. It’s especially perfect for the 4th of July weekend coming up next weekend.

Sizing: Be sure to size down! I’m wearing the sz XXS and it fits perfectly. The bust is smocked so it’s super stretchy! No zippers! Full disclosure: I hemmed mine 1.5 inches because I like my mini dresses super short since I’m only 5 ft. See more about the Jennifer Babydoll Dress here–> The Perfect Summer Babydoll Dress

I filled mini tin buckets with bubbles, red, white and blue beach balls, a small American flag and a patriotic pinwheel to entertain the kids. I used chalkboard stickers to label the buckets with all of their names for a personal touch. The bubbles kept them happy and entertained along with the Jump n’ Slide bouncer that we blew for the kids to play on. I also always pull out basketballgolfT-Ball, and corn hole for the kids to play with outdoors.
