Your July 4th Weekend Wardrobe Is Here!

The long July 4th weekend is fast approaching, but don’t worry because I’ve got you covered! I’ll be heading out of town with 3 girlfriends for a low-key, relaxing getaway. We’ll be inland but our focus is on relaxation, pampering ourselves, and good eats! My personal suitcase will have a mixture of simple, casual classics like my favorite BKE cutoffs and comfortable Soludos flats, but I’ll amp it up for our night on the town with a cute Eight Sixty romper or French Connection bodycon dress.  And of course…swimsuits and coverups!

Whether you’re keeping it low key for a neighborhood cookout, heading out of town, or hitting the town dressed to the nines you can find your perfect patriotic wardrobe staple here. I’ve scoured the internet and hand-picked my favorite mix of trends and classics. Come shop with me!

This picture is from this past weekend from my best friend’s wedding.  My bridesmaid dress was gorgeous in navy lace and tulle by designer Bill Levkoff, tailored perfectly by the only tailor I trust, Krystyna’s Tailor Shop.  Amos was the ringbearer and we outfitted him in these adorable navy Converse Chuck Taylors, Old Navy grey khakis (on sales for $14), navy suspenders from Belk, and Gap’s Oxford Button-Up Bodysuit.
