4th of July Style Guide...

Happy 4th of July!!  A special day in American history- meant to be cherished & appreciated with good friends & family!  As your many outdoor activities approach today, come prepared looking stylish & chic with my guide below!

Of course it would be fabulous to be able to look this chic while wearing an American flag...

... but let's be honest, there is a fine line to walk without it looking tacky...


DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT be caught wearing the American flag to your outdoor party today!  Let's leave this style to Katy Perry & children under 8...



Instead, incorporate our loyal American colors!  Think bold patterns & simple features.  You will always want disproportionate red-white-blue, because evened out looks entirely too matchy-matchy.  This would be a great morning look (parade, brunch, stroll through town)...


Keep the look rolling into the afternoon, but switch to a flirty sundress & throw on some espadrilles.  This would be a great mid-day look (picnic, boating, cocktails)...


And here is a very simple, very festive, very summery look for evening (fireworks, dinner parties, outdoor mingling)...


Below are a few of my favorite things, abiding by our American Flag color palette...




Whatever it is that you choose to do today, do it stylishly & safely!!
