Giddy off the whimsy, friendship, and Americana of Independence Day, we floated through July in a cloud spun from sno-cones and glitter and summer dreams, and so it seems August has finally snuck up on us. Here it is, guys. Soak in this last month before school starts back up, before the leaves change colors and the air turns crisp. Start kissing the summer (and the flings that have probably come with it) goodbye. But MOST importantly, bust out all your brights and neons out in full-force this month while there's still time to rock them! Take a cue from fash-forward Ashlee Simpson, the lovely Amber Stevens, and designer Cynthia Rowley, and wear the color on your feetses.

To say that last night's season finale of Gossip Girl was juicy would be the understatement of the YEAR. Because our year revolves around GG. Doesn't yours?! First of all, you KNOW the plot is thick when the party extends more than TWO episodes. This final ep, "The Wrong Goodbye," centers around the Constance Billard alumni event where the last left off. It opens with Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr) reluctantly teaming up in hot pursuit of Charlie Rhodes (Kaylee DeFer) who went missing after demanding mid-hookup that Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) call her "Serena" — awkwardddd.

We witness the return of biatch extraordinaire, Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg), who desperately wants inclusion in the Upper East Side scheming she's been missing out on living in Bedford, and OH RIGHT, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) has been missing and is being HELD CAPTIVE by Russell Thorpe (Michael Boatman), though most of the characters seem pretty callous in regards to B's absence. Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) senses in that perpetually furrowed brow that Blair is in danger and elicits the aid of Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) and Raina Thorpe (Tika Sumpter) to find and save her.

Blair STILL struggles to choose between Chuck and Prince Louis Grimaldi, everyone's crazy-meter on Charlie goes through the roof, Georgina seems to be in all the right places at every single right time, Vanessa continues to stick her nose where it doesn't belong, and Gossip Girl author, Cecily von Ziegesar, even makes a cameo! Aaaaand there are PLENTY of twists and turns, but that's all you get! I'm not giving away ANY spoilers because it's the FINALE and so totally worth seeing. I mean, this is your last chance to see these fantastic vestments in movement until the cast of characters comes back from summer vaca after all. Just around 120 days until the next episode! We'll be waiting with bated breath and an unquenchable thirst for drama and sartorial beauty. xoxo

Why are stripes so great for summer? Because they make us think of boats and beaches, of course. Lately, ladies have been hitting up the red carpet in little cotton dresses with skinny horizontal stripes that look so fresh and comfy you could probably go sailing in 'em. Kaley Cuoco wore a cap-sleeved dress with a fluttery skirt in navy and white stripes when she attended Comic Con in San Diego last week, and Katie Holmes went to the New York premiere of The Extra Man in a long-sleeved boatneck navy and red striped dress by Celine. And Stephanie Pratt looked so fresh and cute in her striped French Connection dress at the Lia Sophia jewelry collection party this month. Their dresses are so preppy and classic but also informal enough that they don't look stuffy.

Delicate floral-print dresses are definitely a summer staple. Lately, everyone's resorting to breezy little frocks speckled with tiny flowers, and they couldn't look cooler in this soupy late-July heat. Michelle Trachtenberg and 30 Rock's Katrina Bowden both wore vibrant floral mini-dresses to last night's opening of the new Target in Harlem. Their outfits are both part of the limited-edition Liberty of London collection for Target, and sadly, they're sold out. But you can still find the last few items of the flower-powered collection online, like some cute ruffled halter dresses. On the west coast, Samaire Armstrong showed some flower love when she attended the Lia Sophia jewelry launch last week wearing a dress that looked similar to Michelle's.

Amber Lancaster may have stripped down to lacy skivvies as Jenny Swanson on MTV's The Hard Times Of RJ Berger, but off the set she keeps her style tomboyish and comfortable. We love her look because she's SO REAL. She definitely hasn't gotten too Hollywood, and she reminds us of our friends who dress in casual clothes, yet still manage to look amazing and confident. Here's how to get the look: Read More...

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
