Without a doubt, the 4th of July has always been my favorite holiday. Summer weather, BBQ’s, nautical wardrobes, fireworks – all wrapped into one is so much fun! Plus, July is my birthday month – yippie!
Today, we’ll be boating with friends, so you’ll probably catch me in a nautical swimmy and some comfy cutoffs, but I wanted to share this 4th inspired look with Target that can go anywhere with you for your upcoming festivities!
Let me just start by saying Target is a dangerous (ly amazing) place. Lord knows, you’re not walking out of there without at least two (if not ten) unnecessary items each time. And if you somehow manage to come out alive with only the things on your list, don’t you just feel so accomplished!? [End Target loving rant.]
When it comes to Independence Day attire, I love to find nautical inspired pieces that don’t scream stars and stripes ie; I can wear them past the holiday and mesh into my wardrobe for future occasions. This Floral Print Maxi Dress does the trick. And if you’re looking for comfort that will also keep you cool in this scorching midwest weather, this red, white and blue beauty is yours. Extremely comfortable. Lightweight. Fits TTS.
I paired this look with these White Tassel Earrings and have gotten so much use out of them. They come in 7 colors for only $12! (My biggest complaint with large trendy earrings is they often tend to be heavy and hurt my ears – these bad boys are extremely lightweight and don’t bother at all.)
On the bottom are one of my favorite purchases this Spring/Summer: Sigma Espadrille Bow Sandals Available in both navy and red, they fit TTS but are selling out fast!
Blooper Reel: Tim and I met during the summer and seeing fireworks on the 4th was one of our first dates together. (Fireworks are one of the keys to my heart!) He set us up a picnic by the river and this was our first picture we took together. (We look like babies!)
How are you celebrating the 4th today?!
