Last week was America’s birthday and I celebrated my July 4th in style. What did you wear to celebrate? I love embracing festive holiday attire, so this red, white, and blue outfit was just the ticket. I bought these overalls over a year ago, feeling a bit unique as I saw no one else wearing this trend. 12 months later, this trend has blown up! If you’d like to take this trend for a spin, pair the overalls with very simple basics to keep it timeless (which I did not do here). I usually throw on a crewneck white tee with these overalls, but I decided to wear this new graphic tank I bought from Target at the beginning of this summer. It has a Spanish phrase on it( Qué Bonita Senorita) and people love to comment on it. I feel sassy in it and the font feels so whimsical.
Earlier in the day, my husband and I went on a 2 mile hike with friends at Percy Warner Park in Nashville. Since I injured my neck from a little too much intensity at Soar Adventure Tower out in Cool Springs a few days beforehand (I went ham on the monkey bars), I took my sweet time on the hiking trail and brought up the rear. Nevertheless, I enjoyed being outside and soaking in the national holiday with my husband. How did you spend your 4th?
Since I was a bit worn out from the hike earlier that day, I slipped on these comfortable, sparkly, silver block heels to complete my festive outfit. Do you dress thematically for holidays? If not now, when will I ever wear these colors together? I love holidays because of the community and the creativity it sparks from within me and my outfits! I don’t believe in buying July 4th-themed t-shirts. Why buy something that you’ll only wear on one day out of the year?
As for makeup, I went with a classic red lipgloss to feel patriotic. I swiped on Hikari Lip Gloss in “Salsa,” which I received in my June Lip Monthly (you can read my review here). I am very much a minimalist when it comes to accessories because I don’t want them to compete with my lipstick, but this red bandana headband felt seasonally appropriate. I also love wearing it at the pool or beach to keep my hair out of my face.
What do you think of this look? How would you style these overalls?
