Today is our second collaboration post for Dress Code (in case you missed it, check out the first one here) and this time we are putting together looks for 4th of July. Most people are heading to a party, BBQ or a casual get-together with friends. I think the most important thing to remember when going to a more laid-back function like this is that you want to be comfortable - whatever that means for you. I'm definitely my most comfortable in a skirt or dress, but if you're more of a jeans/shorts gal, then go with that.
Since it is usually pretty hot here in July, I chose a lightweight jersey tank dress & kept accessories to a minimum...because you don't want to overdo it and look like you're trying too hard. If you're planning on staying late into the evening for fireworks, just bring along a cardigan, denim jacket or cropped sweater to layer on top of the dress, so you don't get too cold once the sun goes down.
