Red, White, & Blue. Independence Day Dressing.

A Few Outtakes on Patriotic Outfitting.

Jacket: Zara . Tank: Vince . Shorts: Milly (similar here and here) . Bag: Tory Burch . Heels: Christian Louboutin . Sunnies: Ray-ban . Necklace: J.Crew

I love any excuse for “theme” dressing. Pastels on Easter… Reds, Greens, Blues, and Whites around Chanukka and Christmas, and of course; Red, White & Blue on the 4th of July. The key to not looking like a holiday mascot though is embracing the colors without going overboard. I really love everything about this outfit, the blazer is an amazing find from Zara (now on sale!) and it has studs around the shoulders (so on trend) that add a little edge to the classic material, I also added a starburst rhinestone pin (borrowed from an Alice & Olivia dress) for a little pop that mimics the evening’s fireworks. The shorts are some of my absolute fave shorts that I own . The sailor-style Milly shorts are so versatile and I love the greek key pattern, and nautical button-up front, You will def be seeing these on repeat all summer. The shoes are some of my most comfortable Louby’s from a few seasons ago. They are a tad more simple than some of the other designs I own, but those red bottoms add the perfect pop for the Holiday.

Though I adore the outfit, after my Independance Day Brunch.. it was time for a more casual (and cooler) look for the beach [via instagram].
