FOURTH OF JULY

So this is a pretty patriotic month – World Cup and the Fourth of July – which means there are a lot of red, white & blue moments.  Here are some fun outfits to wear during your World Cup parties and Fourth of July bbq.

There is pretty much no outfit more American than jeans and a white top.  It’s true, you can’t question this. Add a couple of your own unique touches, like layering gold necklaces and some bright red shoes, and are now “put-together”

Because fireworks are at night, bring a patriotic scarf along!

Cowgirl boots are also quite American, in fact – go ahead and feel free to substitute out one of the three colors for cowgirl boots if you feel led to do so. I don’t need any red here, I have boots!!

If in doubt, wear simple jewelry like this tiny gold triple heart pendant necklace or tiny star post earrings to be more patriotic!

Of course I support wearing a dress on the Fourth as well. Here are 3 different looks with the color of your choosing:

First up, the red dress:

Put it with a white statement necklace and some cobalt shoes (or vice versa) and you have the perfect Fourth of July get up.  (Of course have a jean jacket on hand if it gets chilly)

Navy Blue dress: I love these because they are like the casual little black dress. (And if you spill salsa on it you can see it as much)

Just chilling and “swooshing” my hair around.

White Dress: The classic summer staple.  Of course it works well for Fourth of July, it is part of the color trio AND it is super feminine.  I put it with the Blue and Red Rayon Polka Dot scarf and bright red sandals.  And again, have a jean jacket handy in case it gets cold at night!

Need a more fashionista approach?

Try a black skirt with a sleeveless chambray shirt (patterned or not), red sandals, and a statement necklace.

OR a similar look but with a bright red skirt. Also I must point out how awesome these taupe summer booties are…. I just got them at Nordstrom Rack a couple weeks ago for a very good deal – go check it out!

This white necklace really is perfect for your summery outfits!

You could also take a statement skirt and put it with a tied up t-shirt:

AND a cat– he’s wearing red too!

How about a navy eyelet lace skirt with a white cotton tank top, red sandals, and a red patterned scarf? Why yes, I believe this works too!

Or let the skirt do all the work for you and put a simple top (and belt if needed) with it.

Here is another fun outfit my great photographer picked out for me, thank you Lyssa!
