Stars & Stripes Style

Is it really (almost) the Fourth of July already? It feels like just yesterday my mom was here over Memorial Day weekend, and somehow we're halfway through the summer! Luckily, I have a Betsey Johnson knit dress already prepped for the holiday complete with a solid blue skirt and red & white striped top, but I was feeling the need to bring some new red, white & blue into my holiday this year. How incredible are those flag print shoes? I already own this white dress from Express (and wear it frequently, sans belt-it's lined and both flattering & comfortable!), but I'm crushing hard on this star print bib necklace (bonus: it's on sale). Usually, my Fourth of July holidays in Iowa were spent at the pool during the day & shooting off fireworks (acquired from a 1.5 hour drive down to Missouri) at night, but this year I'm looking forward to a quiet four days off in the city while most of my friends work or travel. I haven't decided whether I'm going to hit the beach tomorrow, or attempt a few things around the city I don't normally have time to make it to (like the rain room at MoMA). Follow me on instagram to see what I decide!

P.S. if those mirrored Ray-Bans look familiar, that's because you've seen them here, here, here & here!

  1. Loving these finds, especially that star print necklace. I think it's a July 4th must. I was lusting over those Ray Ban aviators, so I finally took the plunge a few weeks ago. They are sooo amazing in person. LOVE.

  2. The Fourth is the best excuse to wear these colors. I love it!

  3. Kind of weird comment, but I love this entire layout! Nice work!
