What Are You Wearing for the 4th of July?

Are you ready for the 4th? ??The big question is, do you have an idea of what you’re going to be wearing? Depending on what your plans are, will likely influence your outfit(s). When our kids were young and we lived in Richmond, VA, we’d typically participate in a cookout with friends somewhere and then go to the Science Museum parking lot (because it was next to the ballpark) and watch fireworks. Of course we didn’t just go watch fireworks. We’d go early to get a good spot and then someone would make a run to Krispy Kreme for hot donuts. I’m not sure which part the kids looked forward to the most, the fireworks or donuts.

If I’m being totally honest here, and why wouldn’t I, I’m not really big on wearing red, white & blue {together} except for on the 4th. Actually,  I just don’t wear a lot of red in general. With that being said, I don’t want to spend a lot for an item or two that aren’t going to be worn on the regular. I’ll save my money to buy something I know I’ll get a lot of use out of or reeeaaallly love and just get something trendy and on the cheaper side for fire-cracker day.

Here are a couple of dresses I’ve worn in the last couple of years. Little swing type dresses are a great choice for looking cute and put together all while being able to stay cool.

 I also took a look around some of our favorite sites and rounded up a pretty good selection of red, white and blue items in all different price points and styles. There’s probably just enough time to place and order and get it in, in the nick of time for the big day.

WOW, that’s A LOT!!! Hope you find something you like!??

    Wow, loving all of this fabulous red white and blue inspo! So many cute pieces. Like you I don’t really wear a lot of red clothes unless it’s holiday related so I mainly stick to red accessories and a red top here and there. But all of these cute clothes are making me want to wear red white and blue all summer long! .

      Thanks Gina! I know, I love them when I look at them, and then I buy them and they just hang there. What’s wrong with me? LOL

    Lovely looks, Lisa. Our American family are arriving on 4th and only today I thought perhaps they expect some flag waving or something. Thinking-cap-on time!
    Hugs, x.

    I’m with you, no red/white/blue for me unless it is the 4th but I do like a cute outfit but I do like it then. We are going to a patriotic event tomorrow evening and I’m wearing some navy girlfriend chinos, a white collared sleeves shirt with a red denim jacket. And, I can wear all of those pieces a lot of different ways. I love your red striped dress. Real cute!

    Hi Lisa!
    I saw this outfit on IG on you and wanted to pop by and say it looks great! Red is your color! I love the ease of dresses like these and how fun with the converse. I finally bought a pair in white leather! I am with you on the red white and blue- I prefer red and white, or blue and white.. Love the pic with your daughter.
    Have a great day!

    Such a cute striped dress! It looks marvelous on you! I getcha too. My favorite color is red but believe it or not, I don’t own a lot of red. Just a hoodie and a dress that I got earlier in the year when I collaborated with Ada for Heart Disease Awareness. It’s not that I don’t want to wear red, it’s I haven’t found things or items that are red that I want to buy or wear. Happy Thursday and I hope your week is going well.

    I usually mix and match different pieces in my wardrobe to get a 4th of july look. I tend to go with denim shorts and a red striped top. I’m not a huge fan of the flag shirts or making it really obvious I’m dressing for the 4th.

    I love all your picks! I don’t normally choose a specific item for the 4th, but like to use things I already own. I like to save my money for things I will wear more regularly too!

    I don’t wear much red either. I do have the same red striped dress though and love it! I’m also loving all of your picks! So many cute pieces!

    I really like some of those red tops! I like red but don’t own a ton of it. Crazy because that was one of the boys’ high school’s colors. We usually have friends over and swim so there isn’t too much outfit planning. All the places with fireworks are so crowded we typically stay home and set off some small ones. Do we know how to have fun or what? Lol!!
    Love ya friend!

      It’s kinda sad when I look in my closet and don’t really see any red. I guess I should get at least a little.
