Red, White & Blue

I cannot believe it's already July and the 4th is just around the corner!  We're planning a fairly laid back get-together, hosting a BBQ at our house with our best friends and then heading downtown to watch the fireworks together as a family.  This dress arrived just in time for the holiday - I love that the colors are perfectly patriotic, but not in an obvious or too-literal way.  (Oh, and did I mention that it's less than $30?!)  Since I'm the hostess this year & comfort is key, I'll be keeping my look casual with a denim jacket, cork wedges & just a few bracelets.

What I'm wearing:
c/o QuestHaven Fashions Dress (on sale), TinselTown Denim Couture jacket (similar here or here), Dana Buchman Wedges (on sale), Pulicati tote (similar), Bracelets: c/o Stella & Dot & J. Crew (similar here or here), ASOS ring (similar here or here)

I want to say that I like that you are wearing sunglasses less in your posts lately. You have such pretty eyes it is nice to see your face more!

Also that is the cutest 4th of July dress.

Kimberly said...


That is so sweet of you to say! Sometimes sunglasses are necessary when my husband/photographer is standing in the direction of the sun (otherwise I'd be squinting in every photo!). But I will always try to keep a good mix of with/without. Thank you for taking the time to comment!!
