Fourth of July Style

Today I am excited to be joining up with Tara of Mix and Match Fashion and Marion of Marionberry Style to show off our 4th of July party and picnic looks.

I love how Tara glammed up her gingham dress with a sequined clutch and Marion was bold enough to style a jumpsuit.

Of course I love wearing red, white and blue since they so easily become nautical...a trend I insist on incorporating into my style year round, but especially during the summer!

Hope you've found some fun inspiration for the 4th this year, do you have any fun plans? I'm just hoping to catch some fireworks, and maybe have a s'more or two!

  2. Love this outfit so perfect for the 4th of July. You found the perfect backdrop for these pics. :) I have similar shorts but can't seem to locate them. I hate when that happens.

  15. I have been looking for shorts exactly like that! I wish Old Navy still had them! I really like them paired with the anchor print tee! This is one of my favorite outfits from you!

  16. I don't know how you could resist going with a nautical outfit for the fourth of July - the colours absolutely call for it and justify it! I love that you kept your outfit mostly blue and white, adding in just the tiniest touch of red with your clutch. It's a different take on the nautical look than I'm used to seeing and I love the result. Happy (almost) Fourth of July!

  17. These are some really cute looks for the 4th! I always enjoy dressing up. I'm doing red & white this year.

  18. I just love this whole look but I love your setting for the pictures even more. And you took the pics at the perfect time of day.

  19. Very patriotic, what a great setting for pictures.
    I adore the stripe mix and hope you have a nice long weekend.

  20. Oh Lydia. You ladies all did a great job. Your photos, as usual, are stunning. I love this tee so much and it goes perfectly with your shorts and clutch.

  21. Everyone's looks are great! I really like your t-shirt! The marina makes a beautiful backdrop for pictures!
