Hooray for the red, white and blue! Here’s wishing you all a happy 4th of July. If you don’t live in the States, I imagine you occasionally dress in red, white and blue as it’s such a fun nautical combination! Today I am sharing a very casual version of this combination in my Fourth of July outfit.
Our friends in Canada just celebrated their annual holiday and I hope you all had a lovely Canada Day. My mom was a Canadian from Ontario, so I feel a special affiliation with our Canadian neighbors. Yay, Maple Leaf!
My Fourth of July outfit is very casual as we will be having family over for a BBQ and pool party. And our weather has been glorious despite a bit of coastal overcast in the morning. On past 4th of July celebrations, we have sat on the beach in a cloud of smoke from the fireworks show. Here in San Clemente, the fireworks are shot off the end of our city pier, which is pretty cool. We can see the fireworks from our balcony from both the pier and from a show up the coast in Dana Point. Where will you be celebrating the holiday?
The Fourth of July Outfit
For the holiday, my outfit will be pretty basic: shorts and a top with sandals! Lol! Not much more basic than that! But I did want to share these finds as they are great pieces that you can wear all summer long. First off, the red top.
This is another cute top from Target. Can you ever get enough of the selection at Target? This is another item from A New Day. Such value for the money and all stylish!
Many of my recent posts have featured my favorite chino shorts, all from Target. (Here are a few posts where I feature them: here, here, and here.) I have them in several colors. For this post, I’m styling my favorite denim shorts. These are a longer length at 9″, more of a Bermuda fit, but not too long on my short legs! They have just the right amount of stretch and fit perfectly as a result. They come in a couple of colors, including this white and a regular blue denim. If you prefer a true Bermuda, here is a link to a 13″ pair that is on sale!
Your Fourth of July outfit simply must include denim, right? It’s just such a natural for this holiday and looks great with red and white, so why not? And these denim espadrilles go with everything in my summer wardrobe! I styled them here with a skirt in an earlier post. They are padded on the bottom so are very comfortable for a flat shoe. And they complete the end of red, white, and …
Of course, the adorable red, white and blue striped rug and the “Welcome” plaque are also from Target. Lots of cute decorations for the 4th!
I’m keeping this post short as I know you are all about celebrating this wonderful holiday where we celebrate and honor the birth of our nation. Have a wonderful Fourth of July. And don’t forget your red, white and blue!
