Independence day is nearing soon, so what better way to celebrate than by dressing up in full assemble of red, white and navy. With a weekend complete of barbeque gatherings, fireworks and endless festivities, you'll need an outfit that will keep you feeling fresh in the hot weather as well as cute and comfortable throughout the whole day.
Hopefully this post will give you some ideas, so you're full blast ready for July 4th. You can have so much fun picking out or even adding some DIY touches that are unique and all so fitting for the holiday. The options are endless. From hair accessories to various nail art designs, you can go all out for this national holiday. I find it very exciting picking out what to wear each year, usually not being able to decide until the morning of Fourth of July, but you know that's what we girls go through almost everyday. (I guess it's part of our DNA) Once that's taken care of, in the last few years it's become a tradition for my sister and I to go to the Summerlin patriotic parade which is really fun and there's always this wonderful feeling of a community coming together to celebrate. And at night, we always end by watching the fireworks show across Las Vegas which is always spectacular. Seeing the whole strip light up in front of your eyes really is a sight that must be seen and admired. What about you? What are some of your family traditions on the Fourth of July that each year get you excited for this day?
Moving on to the threads I'm wearing. On an occasion like this one, a maxi dress in navy is exactly what I would suggest. This one is from Target by the brand xhilaration. Not only are maxi dresses loose and meant for wearing all summer long, but also look at the ruffle detail on this one. I love it because it adds a dash of flair to this rather simple dress. Isn't it lovely? If it wasn't for that one detail I don't think I would have bought it because I tend to lean toward items that are more fun and outgoing just like my personality.
Now that we've got the top covered, let's move on the the soles of our feet. I would suggest some nice flip-flops because you'll probably be moving around all day and the last thing you want is for your feet to be in blisters at the end of the day. I know it can be hard for all of the heel lovers out there, but try to stay away from them on the Fourth of July. I've got on these silver jem flip-flops by the same brand as the dress. They're very cute and might I just add really comfortable. I can celebrate all weekend long, not only in comfort but style as well.
All that's left is a touch of red, so why not add a nice vibrant scarf around my neck, right? It's no surprise that this accessory just makes this outfit complete. Plus, adding a long necklace with the scarf is the perfect combination and one of my favorites. Don't you agree, it just looks good? For an extra feel of summer, I added these gorgeous white plumeria flower hair pieces that completely go along with this red, white and navy theme.
Style wise, I'm ready for the Fourth of July! I can't wait for this weekend's festivities. I'm so excited for the annual parade, spending time with my family and of course seeing lots of fireworks shoot into the sky. It's going to be a blast!
I hope you have a wonderful Independence day celebration. If you would like send me photos on my twitter @RAFashionDI of your red, white and navy attire. I would love to see your looks and I'm sure all of you will look amazing. Happy Fourth of July from me to you!
