"You look like the Fourth of July!"

Quick! Name that movie! (It's Legally Blonde 2, in case your movie knowledge isn't up to par). Anyways, if you're an American, you know that Independence day is next Monday, and I'm here to give you a little advice on what to wear! Holiday dressing can be tricky. You want to look festive, but not like a flag.  So stick to these tips, and no matter if you're going to a backyard BBQ or a country club, you'll be set for the weekend! 

If your plans are on the more casual side, opt for cute and comfortable, but with a little fashionable flair. Wear a very on-trend chambray shirt (1) for your "blue" and for the "white," these white denim cut-offs (3) are the perfect shorts. Keep it casual with flat sandals (4), and if you're going to be in the sun, protect your skin with a straw hat (2)! Leave the red at home to avoid looking a little too festive! 

If your plans involve something a little fancier, opt for a super cute striped dress (1), but since you've got the stripes covered out of the "stars and stripes" equation, keep the rest of the look a little more neutral. If you still want to have a little bit of fireworks in your outfit, try a glittery belt (2) on for size (I bought one last week and I'm crazy about it). As for shoes, go for comfortable but chic espadrilles in a neutral color (3)

Do you have any plans for the Fourth yet? What do you plan on wearing? 


  1. I'm with you, lady -- I need several outfit options! I'll be bouncing from place to place all weekend. I love that little striped J. Crew dress!

  2. I quote Legally Blonde 1&2 more often than I am willing to admit. Snap Cup for you. = )
    Great post!
