Red, White, and Blue

The Fourth of July is my all time favorite holiday – and it’s coming up!    What’s not to love?  Time to barbecue, relax, and just chill with friends and family!  My favorite part, of course, is the the super cute fashion šŸ™‚

You bet I (and my girls) will be all decked out in our red white and blue!  I get them new dresses and accessories every year, and they love it as much as I do.

Here are some of my favorite things to wear.


A patriotic bag and sunnies are a definite must.  I bought this bag a few years back from Nordstrom and it is still one of my favorite bags.  It is small and crossbody, but it fits a ton!  Can we talk about this distressed fringe?  Sooo cool, and gives that 70’s boho feel.  I love this bag.  It’s not available anymore, but I found a few on poshmark here.  


Also, these flag sunglasses are very cool, and perfect for an outside barbecue.  Similar ones here.

We’re gonna need an outfit.



I’m keeping it casual this year- I have a ton of Fourth of July themed tops, dresses, and skirts, but this is what I picked this year.  A simple off the shoulder tee that reads LOVE, and some distressed denim shorts with stars and stripes detailing on the inside pockets.  I love the shirt kind of messily tucked into the front of the shorts.  Very cool.

Here is the top on me, so you can see the shoulder detail.



If you don’t have anything like this- white shorts with a red or blue striped tee would be cute, or just anything red white and blue!  I would love a pair of red shorts for next year.

Some fun nails are definitely necessary- and you don’t have to be a nail art expert drawing on stars and stripes.  I like to just paint my nails different colors and I think it looks really cute and patriotic.



The blue I love is Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, which is the prettiest bright royal creamy blue.  For the red, I love Essie Gel Couture in Rock the Runway, because it’s bright and the perfect red (it’s on my toes too).  I like to do a silver to give it some sparkle, and Julep Missy is my favorite opaque metallic silver.  For the white, I chose Essie Sweet Souffle because it’s got a little bit of gold iridescence to it that is gorgeous.

Also- a red lip like MAC’s Ruby Woo is so pretty and dresses up the look.  This is the perfect matte red.

Our doggie groomer even put red white and blue bows on Maggie and Mollie.  We were thrilled!



Happy 4th everyone!
