Fun & Flowy

Whatever your plans, this $25 wrap dress from Target is a winner! It is HOT in Texas and flowy dresses are a must-have for staying cool. The patriotic color scheme makes it a perfect choice for your 4th of July outings. Pair it with some wedges or sandals, a straw bag for some texture, a fun earring and your favorite sunnies and you’re ready to snap, crackle & POP!!

Beachy Keen

Stop everything and look at this white embroidered Knox & Rose kimono! I absolutely love the fabric and shape. Throw it over your swimsuit and you’ve got yourself a classy cover up!

I love the sporty vibes from this swimsuit! It’s very flattering and fits really well. The bottoms are high-waisted and have great booty coverage. I’ve had these flip flops for 2 summer’s now and they are still SO popular and such good quality. BOTH the swim and sandals are under $20!

I have fair skin and ALWAYS use sunscreen because I’ll crisp up in just a few minutes out in the sun and the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen line has been my go-to for several years. I like that it doesn’t smell like sunblock and doesn’t leave a greasy or sticky film. I keep one of these sticks in my bag and in my car for quick access.

Patriotic Vibes

Casual might as well be my middle name because I am all about rocking the t-shirt and shorts for Fourth of July! I don’t like to buy tops that I can ONLY wear for one thing. We all have a budget and we need our clothing to pull double or even triple duty, right? Check out these tee and shorts combos that give all the patriotic vibes but work for other outfits too!

A Nod To Fourth of July

For those of you who want a less overt patriotic look, I love a good camo shirt! Grab your favorite white denim, a great sandal, a jean jacket and you’ve got yourself a cute Independence day look! I love these Articles of Society white jeans. They fit great and are thin and breezy. You do need to wear nude undies with these pants. The only downside to this pair is that the front pockets are faux – which is a reason they look so flattering but if you need the pockets – these are not for you.

Easy Casual

Nothing says summer or Fourth of July more than white shorts! Whatever you do, do not let the summer pass without you getting a great pair of white shorts. Old Navy is my go-to store for shorts. I want cute styles and patterns for less. Style them with your favorite patriotic tee + hat and head out the door! Easy casual looks like this are my jam. I want to look put together without all the fuss of putting things together, yes?! YES!
