Red, White and Blue – 4 Looks For The 4th of July!

June 20, 2017


Erin Schrader

It’s no denying that summer is flying by and before we know it June is going to be another month crossed off the list and we will be head first into July. If you are anything like me, July is the best month of the year [mostly because it’s when my birthday falls but also because of things like sunshine, warmth, concerts, boat rides, beers and of course – 4th of July]. When it comes to dressing for July, three colors shine above all else – red, white and blue. To ensure we are all properly equipped for the holiday I have rounded up four different looks for your 4th of July festivities, all from Macy’s, all at a great price. Whether you are attending a pool party, an outdoor cookout or a casual evening gathering, there are looks for all occasions. If you haven’t shopped recently at Macy’s, my team and I have been going hog wild there lately — SO many adorable items at affordable prices. I love that they offer free shipping + free returns over $25! Alright, let’s get started…

Look One // Seaside Soiree 
I think there is a reason why it is called seersucker – because I am an absolute sucker for it. This dress is absolute perfection when it comes to all things white and blue. Add a fun pop of red with your shoes and you are ready for any waterside party.
Look Two // Casual Cookout 
 Similar Shorts  [true to size] // Vince Camuto Seanna Flat Sandals [true to size]
For those hot summer days, you need something cool to wear as you beat the heat. My go-to is a pair of shorts, lightweight summer top, and comfortable sandals. This bright blue pom top is less than $25 and these Vince Camuto sandals are so fun for summer! Add in a pair of white shorts and you are all set and ready to roll!

Look Three // Poolside Party 
Dotti Tulum Striped Cover-Up Shirt [size down, wearing in small – needing it in XS]
If you are headed to a pool or lake to celebrate the holiday, a festive cover-up should most definitely be on your list. This shirt is perfect for staying covered up while remaining relaxed. Add in some strappy sandals and you’ll be set! The only thing you need is a drink in your hand and you are good to go.

Look Four // Firework Festivities 

INC International Concepts Crocheted Lace Top [true to size, wearing in small] // Maison Jules Cotton Scallop-Hem Shorts [true to size] // Vince Camuto Retana Lace-Up Demi-Wedge Sandals [true to size]

There’s just something about a classic lace top and scalloped shorts that make any outfit look polished and a little bit preppy. As you head out to your evening firework festivities, you want to look the part while wearing something that suitable for blanket sitting.
And there we have it – four 4th of July looks for you to rock in just a few short weeks! Which one are you loving most? Be sure to check out Macy’s for your summer fashion needs!

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
