Each summer I feel like the Fourth of July always sneaks up on me and this year is no exception. (How is it already July on Saturday?!) Independence Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. Beyond the patriotism, it’s a nice pause in the midst of a crazy and busy summer and is filled with time with family and friends, dining al fresco and crackling fireworks. I’ve been planning some outfit options for backyard barbeques. You can never go wrong with the classic colors or a hint of stripes.
I’ve been on a white blouse kick this summer and this eyelet top is just perfect for the holiday weekend. If you’re looking for an easy sundress, I love this v-neck striped number from Madewell paired with simple slides. And you can never go wrong with a little preppy American flag sweater, denim shorts and sneakers.
