Fourth of July Essentials

Over here celebrating our 243rd birthday. NBD! With the Fourth of July around the corner, America will be popping with excitement to celebrate our independence. Many of us will take a 4-day weekend and spend it with our family and friends soaking up the summer sun at the beach or the lake. Some might barbecue and sip on cold drinks. Others might get outdoors and explore a new or familiar place.

Whether you have major plans or plan to have no plans at all and lounge around your house and watch Netflix (no judgment here) I hope you enjoy a little R&R. If you’re not off and hustling at work to support yourself and your family – YOU ARE AMAZING!

I rounded up some of my MUST HAVE Fourth of July essentials for my girls who are planning to be outdoors! Best thing about all these finds? They’re all available with Prime shipping so you can still get them in time for the 4th! What’s one of your major outdoor must-haves?

Okay, if you’re looking to be patriotic and still look cute – I have a few ideas for you, clearly! I have so many flag and patriotic shirts that I grab pretty much year round (#America) so really any of these tops will serve you on more than just 4th of July!

I found shorts to suit really any occasion and body style and so many pretty, soft and flattering dresses! Every one of these pieces can absolutely transition into other seasons and be styled for a dressy or casual outfit. I am always mindful of pieces I purchase nowadays because I want anything I buy to be functional for many kinds of outfits and seasons.

  1. Off the shoulder one-piece swimsuit
  2. Valentino dupes flip flops
  3. White Eyelet Dress
  4. Levis denim Shorts
  5. Grey Heart Patriotic Tee
