Festive 4th!

I thought I would show you some of my favorite looks for 4th of July parties this weekend. Here in Texas it is a struggle to feel cute while looking like a hot sweaty mess! I personally like to keep my style pretty simple when I know I am going to be outside chasing my kiddos around. When going to a celebration for the 4th, I like to be festive without looking like I am wearing an American flag. I think the key to this is wearing one or two instead of all three (Red, White, Blue) colors.

I found this adorable tank at Target this week (opposite pattern here) and thought it would be so perfect for our casual outdoor BBQ that we will be going to.  I love these cut offs from a boutique in Houston, similar  here and here.


If dresses are more of your style here are a few suggestions. I also love this dress in red!!


If you are going to a pool party buy a fun tunic or kimono  as a cover up! Feels like a dress but functions as a swim suit cover up.Add some simple gold hoops and a colorful necklace and you have an "outfit".  Side note: every summer I buy some cheap jewelry that I can wear to the pool and the beach and I don't care if it gets wet or ruined.  here are some cute inexpensive options. 

No matter what you do or where you go, I hope you have a fun holiday weekend celebrating our amazing nation!
