Need last minute food, drink, and outfit inspiration for the holiday weekend? Here's a link roundup of every 4th of July post:
The holiday weekend has begun! Hopefully all of you have the day off and are reading this from a comfortable chair with a cool drink in your hand. Today's outfit inspiration gives you an option if the temperatures drop. A striped moto jacket makes a big statement while keeping the cool air off your arms. Pair it with cropped denim, a red tee, and comfortable sandals for a layered look in a patriotic color palette.
The week of 4th of July outfits continues! A patterned skirt is a summer must-wear and an easy way to make a skirt appropriate for a casual event is to pair it with a chambray shirt. Depending on your mood, you can wear the chambray shirt tucked into the skirt and accented with a belt or you can tie the ends of the shirt for a more laid-back feel. An optional necklace can add an extra pop of color or sparkle if you want to take your look up a notch.

It is now July and that means Independence Day is approaching faster than I can check things off my to-do list!

Head over to bread and flowers for a cocktail recipe that is more American than apple pie and check back later in the week for more food inspiration!
My absolute favorite color is red and I am a sucker for seersucker, so these red seersucker shorts are right up my alley. I also love that they can transform from casual to preppy polished with minimal effort which means that they are a go-to summer piece. For a casual look I paired the shorts with a printed tee featuring sailboats and palm trees on an island. This is perfect for hanging out on a picnic blanket and watching the fireworks. For a more polished look, I tucked in a navy tank and accessorized with a neutral skinny belt and sparkly necklace. This is a comfortable, but camera-ready look if your day includes lawn chairs instead of grass stains.

A maxi dress is an easy outfit choice for the summer. It is a hassle-free, single-item outfit that keeps you cool and keeps the mosquitos off your legs. Choose a two-tone printed dress (such as navy and white) and add a bright necklace (like the red necklace shown in the photo) for a patriotic color palette that doesn't make you look like you are wearing an American flag. If you like this look, here are similar pieces you can buy now: maxi dress / red necklace / birkenstocks
