Happy Independence Day 'Merica!

I thought it was about time to get out and start taking a few outfit photos again. I know it's only been a week, but when you are pretty much stuck in the house even playing dress up and taking pictures in the driveway is a nice change.

So even though I am late to the 4th of July 'party' here are some outfits I put together for the festivities. I tried to include a casual look, work look (that could easily have a blazer added for more of a business feel), and a picnic look. We are hoping to catch the local parade and depending on the day, maybe go see fireworks. Which do you think I'll end up wearing?

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

  11. I love the white top and print pants!! So classy!

  12. Love all of these looks but my favorite is the #3! Hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend!


  13. These are all great looks, but I love the third for a 4th of July look. I think I'd feel out of place wearing it any other day of the year, but I generally can't bring myself to wear r/w/b together.

  14. These are all such cute looks! Is there anything more American than converse? And I love the print on those pants and that skirt. Glad to hear you felt up to some outfit photos. :)

  15. Neither can I! I like the colors, but don't want to risk looking like a walking flag! ;)

  16. It's been going really well! Hopefully I'll be running in 5 weeks! After 2 years of dealing with this, 5 weeks is nothing!

  17. Love the third outfit, the stripes are so nice together! Hope you had a great 4th July, whatever you chose to wear :)

  18. All such fab looks! I think you chose to wear the shorts, because why wouldn't you show off those gorgeous gams!?
