As I am writing this post, I am also painting my nails a bright candy apple red color and planning what to wear on Wednesday—for the Fourth of July! I’m excited for the 4th this year because I will get to spend it with my sister, her husband and my adorable niece and nephew, watching fireworks and making yummy cocktails. Its also fun to experience the holidays through the eyes of a child again. I’m also super excited that the BF will be there to snuggle with while the fireworks go off. So, with all the excitement, I am already in planning mode – food, drinks, and of course, the outfit. I am definitely not above wearing red, white and blue from head to toe. Why not? It doesn’t have to look tacky or over-the-top. Check out how chic it can be…
These stylish (and patriotic!) options are making me think I don’t need to limit the red, white and blue combination to just one day a year – or to a yachting party. Red and white jeans are a great way to go, and a simply striped top gives it a preppy, nautical-vibe. Definitely all-American.
These are some great items to bring out your patriotic spirit on Wednesday – my personal favorites are the bright red Superga sneakers (SO getting a pair), the adorable bikini by Lisa Marie Fernandez and the Julep nail polish in “American the Beautiful” – I have already checked into the salon near me twice to see if its in yet – that’s how badly I want to paint my nails with that color. The red I just put on is only a back-up!
How are you spending the 4th of July this year?
