July 4th Weekend // Outfit #1

July 4th Weekend // Outfit #1

I cannot believe it’s almost July 4th. This summer has really flown by! I feel like I’m going to blink and it’s Labor Day weekend.

This time of year is always so much fun. It’s an excuse to take a few extra days off of work, be outside and have a relaxing weekend with friends. I’ll be spending my weekend in the city this year! It seems to be pretty popular to leave the city during a weekend like this and find a beach somewhere. I’m excited to spend my time here while it’s not as busy!

I have 2 great outfit ideas for your Fourth of July weekend. (I’ll be sharing my next one in a few days!) I hate it when people go TOO over the top with their Red, White & Blue so I went with mostly red and a little jean. I really wanted to highlight these Studded Cut Heel Sandals from Boohoo (only $30!) to bring in jean as a substitution for blue. Since my dress is definitely full on red, I’m also bringing a jean jacket with me to pull in the color of my shoes. Don’t worry, I’ll only bring the jacket if it’s over 80 degrees 😉

Also, swing dresses are really in style right now. They’re so easy to throw on for a hot summer day and are incredibly comfortable. I’m trying to put more color in my wardrobe for this time of year which is why I purchased this bright red swing dress. Mine is a little older but here is a similar one from Roxy and it’s under $40. I actually like it a little more because of the small straps.

I hope this inspires your grilling outfit for the 4th! Check back later this week for my next outfit idea.
