What to Wear: Fourth of July Style

With 4th of July only a few days away (can you believe that today is the last day of June already?!) it's time to start thinking about what you will be wearing this weekend to celebrate.  I love patriotic style as much as the next American girl, but I like a more fashiony approach to it then an in your face patriotic look.  I have three outfits here that will make you feel festive without looking kitschy and have you covered for everything from dinner and drinks out to a family bbq.  For more inspiration you can also check out my DIY approach to American flag tops from last year and see how I styled it too!
This look is great for heading out with friends or to an adult bbq.  This dress will be easy and comfortable to wear, which makes it perfect to celebrate in.  If you're not in the mood to wear wedges switch them out for a pair of nude flats or sandals.  The blue accessories make the look more patriotic and very appropriate for the holiday.

I love this look because the white jeans are the best if the temperatures where you are dip a little bit this weekend and if you need to you can even add a light cardigan to up the warmth factor.  I am completely obsessed with this top, stripes are the perfect way to be patriotic without taking it too far; a bonus is that you can wear it all summer long.  If you want to make the look a bit dressier you can swap the flats for heels or wedges to give you some height.  This look works really well for a family bbq, brunch with friends, or watching fireworks at a party.

This look is super cozy, but the jewelry and metallic sandal help to make it less casual.  I think that this is the best look for if you're plans are super relaxed, you can ditch the jewels and switch the sandals for flip flops if that works better for you.  I feel like this is the outfit that works the best for those lazy summer nights that we all love so much, so if you're just hanging out this weekend then this is definitely the look for you.

Have you started thinking about what you're wearing this weekend?  Do you love to look patriotic for the Fourth?
