Fourth of July Outfit Ideas

Fourth of July Outfit Ideas

It is hard to believe that Independence Day is only a week away. While the holiday will certainly look different this year, there are still some traditions that may be able to remain. I love hunting for the perfect Fourth of July outfit each year. Figuring out what best portrays my style, shows some patriotism, but isn’t too cheesy. I inevitably google and search Pinterest for inspiration, but will ultimately go with what feels right. I thought I would put together some ideas for outfits I think would be just perfect for the holiday!

Capsule Wardrobe | Summer Additions

Capsule Wardrobe | Summer Additions

I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe. I loved putting one together and posting about it a couple of weeks ago. The one thing I have I have always struggled with in relation to the capsule wardrobe, is that I love seasonal clothes that really exemplify that season. The fun earrings in summer or sturdy boots in winter. But there are items that I wouldn’t necessarily put in a true capsule wardrobe because they can’t be used year round.

I also want to make sure the pieces can be used in a casual outfits, work outfits, as well as more dressy outfits.

These are a Few of my Favorite… Places to Shop

These are a Few of my Favorite… Places to Shop

One of the biggest transitions for me when I started my new job was getting dressed every day. Now I know that probably sounds silly, but I am being 110% serious. In college my uniform was leggings, a tee-shirt and a ball cap. Then I got my first post-grad job on a college campus and mastered what I call casual-cute (basically I could still wear jeans every day).  So I went from that, to having to dress business-casual (a.k.a. no jeans and a tee-shirt) every day. Big change.
