Five on the Fourth

Happy Independence Day!! This is one of my favorite holidays, and I always get swept up with pride for my country, and overwhelming gratefulness for those that fought, and continue to fight, for this great nation. And you can bet your boots I’ll cry if they play that darn Lee Greenwood song at the fireworks tonight! #proudtobeanamerican

I’ve been sporting the red, white and blue all weekend, and thought I’d share a few outfit inspirations with you…in case you’re staring at your closet wondering what to wear today.

You could go with the obvious…a shirt with red and blue in it, and a flag cap! But seriously, have you seen a cuter cap?!

You could create a red, white and blue combo of your own.

Or if duplicating the colors of the flag isn’t your thing…stick with just two of the three colors.

You could take any blue or white dress, and make it holiday-perfect with a pop of red accessory.

Feeling a little more girly than sporty? Swap tennies and a ball cap, for sandals and a straw hat. #teaanyone?

And so what if you don’t own any red (I don’t own much!!)…pink will do just fine! It’s not like the patriotic police will be out to fine you.

Statement Necklace (20% off with code AMERICA) | Wedge Espadrilles (on sale!) (also here)

Okay, so that was six…but once I get started creating outfits, I just can’t stop. And the alliteration-lover in me liked the sound of Five on the Fourth better than Six. 😉 I hope you’re feeling festively inspired….enjoy the day, lovebugs!

    Hi, I just ordered the sneakers and plan to wear them on an upcoming trip to NYC. Yours still look really clean! Did you treat them, or have you been washing them to keep them so white?

    • I thought for sure they'd be so dingy by now…I wore them all over Europe, and almost daily since…but they're still brand-new looking! I haven't Scotch Guarded them yet, but I probably will soon! xo

      Awesome, thanks! I received mine yesterday and love them!! You were right on the sizing – I normally wear a 7.5 and the size 7 fit me perfectly. Happy, happy xo

    Those are all really cute outfits. I didn't have any red, so I wore a blue striped shirt and blue shorts. I often cry when I hear that song also.
