American Style

Shirt: D.I.Y.  |  Shorts: Mavi  |  Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita  |  Bandeau:  Forever 21 (similar)  |  Bracelets: Alex and Ani  |  Earrings: Nordstrom  |  Sunglasses: Free People

On Monday I showed you how to make this American Flag Tank Top and I promised I would show how to style it too!  I chose to do a casual look that is perfect for low key get togethers like barbecues, watching fireworks, and summer concerts.  The shirt that I painted was really low cut in the back so I wore a simple bandeau bra that showed off the back.  I paired this with my favorite pair of cutoffs, a stack of Alex and Ani bracelets, and my new silver sandals.  If you happen to have a cute dog around they go well with this outfit too!  

I hope that everyone has a happy and safe start to their 4th of July weekend!

  3. Kristen, I'm so glad you stopped by my blog so that I could find you! This is the perfect 4th of July outfit, and so cool that you made it. I'm following you now on a bunch of channels: GFC, Bloglovin, Instagram, and Twitter and hope you decide to follow me too. =)

    I hope you have a great long weekend!


  4. Cute shirt! I just wrote a blog post about 4th of July outfits, actually. I discussed how I was skeptical to rock the 'Merica look for 4th of July but you managed to make your flag tank look patriotic AND chic! Love.

  6. Lovely DIY! I regret not doing something like that...for being one of my favorite holidays I ended up not even dressing patriotic for the 4th :(:( Def. pinning your DIY so I can remember to do it next year.
