I hope you're all excited for the long weekend festivities! What I love most about this holiday is that at this point summer is in full swing and there are so many fun options whether it's a backyard BBQ, a beach day or catching up with friends/family during a weekend away to celebrate this country's Independence. It's also a great excuse to looking cute wearing some red, white and blue!
I'm a huge fan of white denim for summer, it's so chic and pairs well with many tops to be dressed up or down. As a lover of blazers, I can tell you that a classic one in navy is so versatile adds such a polished look. This White House Black Market-inspired ensemble is the epitome of a classy July.4th outfit in my opinion. It may be a bit too dressy for a very casual bbq or family outing, in which case this navy tee along with a comfy red flat sandals OR strappy espadrille wedges would be the perfect complements to dress it down and still maintain the same color theme. In some cases, it can also be the ideal casual Friday look if your workplace allows that and I'm loving this red tassel necklace.
Living in Florida, it's not so practical for me anymore to wear pants during the daytime in July (I was used to 70-85 degree summer days in Toronto) and by May and June here the thermometer has already shot up well past 100 for weeks at a time, so denim and pants in general are not necessarily in my own future this weekend but are thankfully still an option in the evening. With so many of my readers living in other states that aren't quite so hot, I wanted to share as it's a great option. By changing out or eliminating the scarf and belt it can be worn over and over again with other great colors too such as a yellow or Kelly green tee or even a blush or hot blouse. It's a nod to nautical style, which will of course never go out of fashion.
If you follow along on Facebook then you saw me share 'the one + only hairstyle you'll need this 4th of July weekend'! It's a perfect fuss-free solution for beating the heat and still looking stylish. If you haven't seen it, you'll want to take a peek here as I linked to the step-by-step guide to re-create the look which can be worn with any outfit. Don't you just love it?
With my husband still in Texas for work, it's just us girls so we're going to head to our favorite park for a picnic and watch some fireworks locally in the evening. I'll definitely be doing a little online shopping later today while my babe naps as Ann Taylor is running a sale for an extra 50% OFF their already marked down sale styles through 07/04 with code: HAPPY50 and White House/ Black Market has a sale up to 70% OFF right now also. What are you up to this weekend? Wishing you all a safe & enjoyable holiday.
Thanks for stopping by!
