Happy Friday gorgeous! I’m really excited about the holiday weekend. We’re spending quality time together as a family and catching up with friends to celebrate Independence Day. Whether you’re heading out to see fireworks or joining friends at a BBQ, it’s easy to show your American pride while maintaining your personal style. The key is to not overdo it. Begin with a simple outfit- jeans and a white tee, blue and white stripe dress, or red sailor shorts and a white tank top. Next, throw on one or two accessories sporting the colors of our flag. It could be a fun red espadrille, sporty sunglasses, or a spirited bag. Get creative and have fun with it. You could even tie a red gingham bandana in your hair or wrap a plaid scarf around your wrist to add the pop of color. Voila, there you have it- a stylish outfit worthy of the most spectacular firework display! Here I’m wearing an indigo linen (looks like denim but much lighter) shirtdress. As you can see, it’s quite simple (and super comfy) on its own. I’ve paired it with candy apple red sandals and a woven tote with patriotic pompom details. Just by adding a couple of red, white, & blue accessories, my favorite summer dress is transformed into a stylish patriotic ensemble that is both casual and chic.
What are your plans for the Fourth of July? How will you style your look to show your American pride? Please share.
