Red, White & Blue

Happy Tuesday!

Can you believe we are almost in July!? Summer is flying by...

What do you have planned for the 4th? We are throwing a college graduation party for my brother on Saturday, but no plans yet on Monday! We will definitely watch fireworks though (my favorite part!). 

Today's outfit is all about RED, WHITE, and BLUE. I love to wear these patriotic colors on the 4th, but without looking like a walking American flag. An easy way to achieve this is to wear a red or blue top with white bottoms (pants, skirt or shorts) and accessorize with the other color (again, red or blue). I went with a blue top and accessorized with red for this look.

My blue off the shoulder top is from LOFT and is on sale for $15!!! It's soft and flowy and the style is really flattering! It comes in blue, black, white, and a floral print. This top is in stores and online, so hurry before the sale ends! :)
For jewelry, I accessorized with Baublebar statement earrings. This top would look cute with a short or long necklace, but I went without one to keep the focus on the earrings. I bought these earrings months ago during a sale and they sold out, but there is similar pair available at Baublebar. I love how unique the geometric style is!
My Le Specs sunnies are from Nordstrom and they are my new favorites! The tortoise/blue frames are so chic and the lenses are dark with 100% UV protection. Protective sunglasses are really important and I've been paying more attention to it lately! These sunnies are $59. If you are looking for a new pair, they are good quality and won't break the bank.

This LOFT top can be worn off the shoulder or on. If you don't like the off the shoulder style, it's just as cute worn pulled up on the shoulders! The length becomes a little shorter in the front and on the sides though, so if you plan to wear it that way, consider sizing up. For reference, I'm wearing a small.
I found these adorable Chinese Laundry wedges over the weekend at the Shoe Dept. in a local mall. The red and white colors are perfect for the 4th of July and complete this outfit! They are available in stores and online for only $19.98
To go with my patriotic theme, I carried my red Coach bag gifted by my mother-in-law. This bag is gorgeous and unlike any other bag I own. It has 3 compartments- 2 large outer compartments and a zipper pocket in the middle. Coach has an almost identical version on sale for $162.50! It comes in several colors and select ones (including the red) are marked down. If you've had your eye on a designer bag, check it out! :)
