The Land of The Free and The Home of the Stylish

Earlier this week I posted a pretty cliche outfit idea for the Fourth of July. But you don’t have to dress in head to toe festive wear including stars and stripes, there are more stylish ways to dress festive and celebrate in style. But if you do the whole cliche #ootd, that’s totally cool and you do you boo; but it’s not for everyone.

If you are wanting to be patriotic and still stylish it’s very simple. Find a color palette of blues, reds or whites. You can actually mix all three in tastefully like adding a red lip to a classic jean shorts and white t-shirt look. Extremely casual, perfect for the holiday activities and still festive AF. Also all the Summer vibes which the 4th of July is all about. I opted for the very classic white tee and denim shorts look paired with funky glasses, classic white chucks and a bold bright red lip. I through on this cocoon light weight jacket that is hand dyed with indigo for another hue of blue and a little more fun for the classic look. Also the weather has been extremely bipolar in the mountains so chilly mountain air will probably make an appearance in the evening of the Fourth.  It makes a fashionable statement for the holiday but it’s also as American as apple pie and baseball.

You can find things in your closet already to wear. Like I said; just look for hues of reds, whites or blues. And put something together to make you feel put together for the holiday.

I originally tucked the white tee in to the shorts for a little more of a fun look. But I also understand it’s not for everyone. And this outfit looks just as fun with the shirt untucked.

I hope all of you have a great long holiday weekend (if you get that) and hope you all have a great time next week celebrating Summer and #Merica!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!! For most of us it means a long weekend, beach vacation, BBQing, sales and pools opening; but while you are doing are your fun things take the time to remember the fallen. Our country, our way of life, our freedoms would not be what they are without these brave men and women. I’m honoring the fallen with a little red, white and blue outfit that is perfect for memorial day, July 4th, or a nautical #ootd. I love this outfit because it is comfortable, patriotic and stylish at the same time. If by any chance you can get a hold of a cotton (stretchy) pencil skirt, I highly suggest you do! What will you be wearing this weekend? How will you be celebrating this weekend? Let me know in the comments because I would love to know your holiday weekend plans or traditions!

Stay tuned for sales and recipes for the weekend! Also you don’t want to miss a fun giveaway that is planned for next week!!.
