Fourth Style

I have been trying for two days now to take pictures wearing my top two outfit choices for this coming 4th of July and every time I have someone available to snap my pictures it's raining!!  So I went for plan B ~ I styled the outfits and shot them inside ~ on the floor.  A blogger's gotta do what a blogger's gotta do...


If its' hot this Saturday ~ which I am pretty darn sure it will be because I live in Georgia and it's stinkin' hot here all summer ~ this will be my OOTD (outfit of the day).  This adorable tank was sent to me by Tipsy Elves a few weeks ago and I've been really looking forward to wearing it for our family Fourth festivities!  It's super soft and I love a tank with a v-neck!  These denim cutoffs are from a few years back and I seem to pull them out every Independence Day ~ the subtle star print is spot-on for the holiday!  I've found a few cute pair with flag pocket detail HERE and HERE.  Of course a red cross-body bag and red t-strap sandals area must.  I've found a current red Coach cross-body HERE (mine is vintage) and just about identical sandals HERE.  Jewelry is all Stella & Dot ~ Bianca LariatAlexia NecklaceRenegade Cluster BraceletArrow Bracelet, and Pave Arrow Cuff.


If it cools off in time for the baseball game and fireworks we're attending in the evening then this will be my OOTN (outfit of the night).  This American Flag long sleeve shirt was also gifted to me by the folks at Tipsy Elves.  I'm planning on bringing it with me on our vacation to the beach too because it will be perfect for cooler breezy beach nights!  These white slightly distressed skinny jeans are my summer go-to's.  I actually chopped them off at the bottom to give them more of a cropped/distressed look.  These studded denim gladiators are from last year and are sold out but I found a similar pair HERE.  The necklace is the Zuni Layering Necklace from Stella & Dot, and the bracelets are Stella & Dot as well ~ Remi WrapEnlighten Bracelet and the sold out Pyramid Cuff.

Have I mentioned that I love the 4th of July?!?!  Family (my entire family will be here!!), fitness (I'm running the Peachtree Road Race - which is the largest 10k in the world!), food, fun, fireworks, baseball and, of course, cute fashion ~ what's not to love?!?  What are you doing for the holiday? Whatever it is, have fun and be safe!!

Baby, You're A Firework

As I've mentioned in my last few Flashback Friday posts I love dressing for the holidays ~ whatever the holiday is ~ and the Fourth of July is one of my favorites!  There are so many cute outfit ideas for any way you celebrate Independence Day ~ from backyard picnics, to a boat cruise on the lake, fireworks with friends, a baseball game with the family or just relaxing at home.  I'm loving this Flower Burst Top from The Loft Boutique.  The flower design looks like fireworks!  I paired it with navy relaxed pants (SOOOO comfy!!) but it would be equally cute with jeans (even distressed denim like this pair to dress it down a bit) or shorts (make'em red!).

Savvy Style Tip ~ Theme or holiday dressing can be fun but don't overdo it!  Pick one or two pieces, like a flag tank and red and white striped shoes for The Fourth or sequined pants and glitzy earrings for New Years, and keep the rest simple/neutral.  You want to look like your are ready for the holiday but not crazy!







~ What I'm Wearing ~
Flower Burst Top: The Loft Boutique
Navy Relaxed Pants: The Loft Boutique
Tote: The one featured is sold out (I bought it!) but I found THIS ONE that's reversible, comes in several colors and is under $50!  Every girl needs a great tote!
White Wedge Sandals: I'm loving THESE with the cork wedge!
Sunnies: SIMILAR

These earrings are sold out.  I found a similar pair HERE and THIS PAIR would be perfect for The Fourth!  Both pairs can be worn multiple ways.





If you haven't already, make sure to check out my last two Flashback Friday posts that feature more fun Independence Day style ~ HERE and HERE.

Closet Staple ~ Nude Heels

What lengthens legs and goes with everything?  Nude heels!  Nude heels are a no-brainer for  just about every outfit from dressing up denim, completing an evening look as well as just about any day ensemble.  They are seasonless, go with everything, and lengthen legs.  When I work with a client the first pair of shoes we go shopping for, if they don't already own a pair, are nude heels.  The heels don't have to be super high either.  Kitten heels or even a great pair of pointy toe skimmers will give the same effect if you aren't a high-heel girl.  

Savvy Style Tip ~ nude sandals and wedges are great for warmer months when you want to show off that pretty summer pedi ~ and they look great with shorts!

1 ~ Steve Madden / 2 ~ Ted Baker / 3 ~ Kurt Geiger / 4 ~ TOPSHOP / 5 ~ Valentino /
6 ~ Unique Vintage / 7 ~ BCBGeneration / 8 ~ Dee Keller / 9 ~ Charles by Charles David /
10 ~ Charles by Charles David / 11 ~ Madden Girl

Below are some nude perfect-for-summer styles:
