Another year, yet another Fourth of July passes while I’m out of the country. Don’t get me wrong, South America is gorgeous and I’m so happy and lucky that I’m able to visit so often. However, I love the Fourth! I’ve always had such a great time dressing up in my (often obnoxious) reds, whites, and blues and checking out the yearly fireworks, spending the day swimming, and eating way more than I ever intend to.
So, to live vicariously through you all, here are my favorite patriotic picks for the holiday this year!
Keep it classy this year with a polished top like this silk blouse from Everlane.
I’m not known for wearing shorts, in fact, I only have about four pairs. However, these red chinos from Uniqlo just might make my list this year.
Yet another item of clothing that I’m not known for wearing: hats! I just look so funny in all hats. I’m not sure if it’s the shape or size of my head, but I just can’t pull them off. Though, for you hat wearers out there, this one from J.Crew is a beaut.
Loafers! These are, of course, a staple for the Fourth of July. And striped ones by J.Crew at that? Count me in!
Last, but surely not least: pearls. I don’t travel anywhere without pearls, so I can definitely be spotted sporting my favorite pearls on the Fourth.
Are you dressing up or dressing down this time around?
