Fourth of July Style

Hey, hey party people! I hope you had a safe and wonderful Fourth of July! Our country isn’t perfect, but I love it SO much. I have to admit…during those fireworks, I teared up just a little bit. No matter what, I am proud to be an American. I will always love my country. Today’s post is my #OOTD from yesterday (I know I’m a little late but I like to think I’m just really early for next year) + a little bit of a recap from my BBQ. Let’s dive into this Fourth of July Style.

Fourth of July Style

I have a formula I always follow when it comes to Fourth of July. Blue top, White Pants, Red Shoes. I’m serious. If I posted my outfits from the last five (at least) Forth of July’s, I’m fairly certain that is what I would come up with. So, it probably isn’t any surprise that I stuck to what I know and pulled that out again. 

Fourth of July Style

My Outfit:

I wore a blue chambray top, white jeans and red toms. I am a big believer in going all out for the Fourth of July. I lovelovelove this holiday because I lovelovelove my country. I wanted to wear a dress, but couldn’t find one I felt stoked about this season. I chose a red necklace to pull in the red from my shoes so that it looked cohesive and put together. 

Fourth of July Style

Chambray tops are the BEST to style for the Fourth of July. I have worn them with white jeans (as pictured), I have worn them with red dresses tied up at the front (and cowboy boots), I have worn them tucked into red and white gingham skirts, the options are literally endless. When choosing what top to pull out for the Fourth, I love choosing chambray.

White jeans / white shorts are good. I have even debated white overalls (I love them so much). They are bright, look good on everyone, but unfortunately they don’t lend themselves to eating burgers / hot dogs / red punch very well. While I think white denim is the bomb, make sure you aren’t someone who likes to spill on themselves before pulling them out on one of the messiest food days of the year.

I know Toms were like super popular there for a while, and then they kind of fell off the wagon a tiny bit, but I’ve gotta say, I still really like them. They’re comfortable to walk in (which is important during a festival), they look bright and fun, and the red version they have is the PERFECT America red. 

 

My Hair & Makeup:

I chose to go crazy, as always. I did an amped up version of the tutorial I did on Monday (watch it here). I did a blue – black winged eyeliner gradient, a silver glitter halo eyeshadow, glitter in my corner, and fake lashes. I didn’t think I was going to pull out my falsies, butttttt. I did because I was feeling a little bit #extra. 

Fourth of July Style

For my hair, I did a double dutch braid half up half down beach wave look. Holy crap I need a new name for that. It is actually so much easier than it looks. You just part your hair down the center, curl half way up your head, braid the uncurled hair at the top in two sections and put the pony tails in little space buns! All in all, it look me less than 15 minutes to complete start to finish. If you guys want to see a tutorial on this hair look, drop me a comment below.

Adam’s Outfit:

If you know my husband at all, you know he is the world’s most patriotic man. He LOVES America. He has a lot of country pride and I love that about him. He wears red white and blue somewhere on his body every single day. I’m not joking, other than our wedding day, every single day I’ve known him, he’s worn red white and blue. #dedication

Fourth of July Style

He opted for his favorite comfortable tee that encompassed all the colors of the flag. He loves this shirt. It paired well with his grey shorts (because he refused to wear jeans, which is totally fine. It was SO hot & humid). His favorite part of the outfit, though, was his American flag socks. This guys been wearing American flag socks all week in preparation for yesterday. Way to go, buddy. LOL

Our BBQ + The Festival

We had a blast cooking out and setting up our beautiful red white and blue table. I spent days getting everything together, and planning out the food, drinks and dessert. We had burgers (naturally), fruit punch (Hawaiian punch + sprite), blue + white chips with red salsa, and an American Flag fruit pizza.

We went to watch the fireworks and hear Creedence Clearwater play downtown, which was super fun. I got kettle corn, italian ice and pretzels. I lovelovelove fair food more than anything else and do NOT believe calories count on the Fourth of July. SO there’s that. The fireworks were beautiful and it made me appreciate the beautiful country I live in.

I hope you all had a beautiful and safe Fourth of July. I can’t believe we are already over halfway done with 2017. It feels like we just started this year.
