Patriotic & Proud
Yes, I know it's still June, but it's time to start planning out your July 4th outfit because it will be here before you know it! The fourth is one of my favorite holidays because it's summer time, everyone is happy, life is good, time is spent with family eating good food and enjoying each other's presence. Isn't that what being an American is all about?! But what to wear?! Some just throw on a swim suit and stay in that all day- some like to look cute... that would be me!
In the above photos, I'm wearing an easy (and affordable) outfit for a chic Independence Day 2018. This darling denim romper is on the casual side, but not too dressy. Rompers in general are my go-to because they are so comfortable, which is perfect to sit on a blanket and watch fireworks! Y'all are probably dying to know where I got it... It's from Pink Lily. Pink Lily is featuring a Star Spangled collection this season for the Fourth of July. There's so many darling pieces y'all NEED to have for America's birthday. Shop it here!
Now on to how I styled this denim romper... I styled this romper with these white statement earrings and a straw bag with a red bandana tied to it for a little pop of something extra! I actually found these sandals at Nordstrom Rack on super sale! I'm all about the sale. This look is super cute and are perfect for however y'all celebrate the best holiday of the summer.
This July Fourth I'll be in my hometown, Carlsbad, CA where I grew up (just 30 minutes north of San Diego) The other day I was thinking, I haven't been home for the fourth of July in 7 years!! Y'all to my family the 4th is a big deal... we go BIG! Our family always throws the best Fourth of July parties. We take the boat out, watch the firework show from Legoland in our back yard, dad bbqs a ton of yummy food, we swim in the pool all day, and stay up late in the night making smores. The Fourth of July is like Christmas to my dad. So this year will be a BIG deal because I'll be home. Gosh that feels good!! Y'all may or may not know, I'm super close to my family. So being away is hard. But on the contrary, it's probably better that way, so my husband and I can make our mark together and our future family.
Be sure to shop Pink Lily's darling Star Spangled collection! It's the cutest ever!!
