Happy July my friends!
Today has me wondering what I will be
wearing on July 4th
One of the beauties of blogging
is that I have a vivid record of outfits worn
so today I went back to search for some
4th of July options and thought I would share
just in case you too were looking for 4th wardrobe inspiration!
Even though the Fourth is only days away
I still have no idea what we will be doing
so I have pulled many different looks
hoping that maybe I would be inspired me for the day!
This outfit here is about as classic Fourth color and piece choices
as you can get.
Especially with my 4th of July vintage necklace
it seems almost a shame not to pull this beauty out!
A classic Breton stripe will always work
for the 4th
whether it is styled up or down!
This Saint James is still one of my favorite pieces I picked up in Paris
but many versions are readily available here as well.
Plain or layered over denim
bold accessories or none …
it's a fabulous piece for not only the 4th
but a classic wardrobe staple besides.
If I am feeling particularly bold that day
stripe on stripe on stripe
is always an option!
Clean red, white and blue pairings
with a pop of a huge red floral brooch
is a classic approach with flair!
It's supposed to warm here
so a shorts suit with stripes and fedora are an option.
Blues with white pops are always an option.
Printed pants with denim and turquoise
popped with gold glitter shoes says casual fun.
In case an invite for a formal affair on a yacht comes in
this would be perfect for fireworks and cocktails
sailing into the night!
Turbans and berets are always
perfect sailing choices
as they prevent being battered by your own hair
always look polished.
I could do the 4th
avant gaude style and pot for only white choices.
Or maybe go entirely the other way
with bold color and pattern mixing
with even adding a little yellow to the color pallet
and give it a fresh 4th interpretation.
I am liking the idea this year of mixing in
some ethnic pieces to my 4th of July ensemble choices
like this red Chines jacket mixed with nautical stripes and fedora.
This long red kimono could also be a choice
depending on our destination for the day.
I am thinking the Getty Museum in LA might be a choice …
if they are even open?
I could go for an easy retro vibe …
But today my favorite is this mix of nautical, leopard and bold tassel earrings!
This is an easy outfit if sight seeing is on the agenda.
My beautiful red cape would be a perfect choice
if the weather permitted
wool for the 4th hasn't been an option.
Open though it could ward of a summer night chill.
Staying home a nautical stripe tunic would be a choice!
A denim trench could be an option for dinner out.
Even one of my favorite pairings
a sweatshirt and ball skirt could work
depending on the occasion.
If we opt to stay home in the backyard
I do know what I will be wearing.
Or maybe this option
because it's absolutely comfortable
and still can sing 4th of July with ease!
I hope this post has inspired you to shop your own closet for some 4th of July options!
What do you have planned to Celebrate the Day?
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
