Three 4th of July Outfits For Any Party

June 20, 2018


Erin Schrader

T minus 14 days. How the 4th of July is this soon is beyond on me. One minute it’s the new year and the next we’re half way through the year wondering how in the heck we got here? Whether we’re ready for not, the holiday is comin’ for us and if there is any holiday that I like to match my outfit to, it’s the 4th of July. There’s just something about red, white and blue that screams USA in the best way possible and fortunately for us, it looks good in outfit form too 😉

Today I’m bringing you three looks for whatever your 4th of July festivities include – all from Nordstrom which means FREE quick shipping [yes, there’s still time to get these looks in before the holiday kicks off!] and free returns! If you’d rather hop into a store to pick up the looks below, don’t forget about their curbside pickup or the ability to reserve online and then try on in store. Basically they are the unicorn of all stores and provide the best customer experience however possible. While we are on the topic of Nordstrom , don’t forget that the Anniversary Sale is right around the corner and to shop early access all you need is the Nordstrom Rewards card [bonus: you’ll receive a FREE $40 note once you make your first purchase with the card]. You know we’ll be bringing you FULL coverage of the sale so stay tuned for that fun.

Okay, back to the three 4th of July looks – we’ll start with the most classic and traditional 4th of July activity – fireworks! Most all of us partake in watching fireworks light up our sky in some way, shape or form around the 4th and if you’re anything like me you like to keep these three things in mind when doing so 1) comfort 2) layers [mostly to keep the mosquitos off] and 3) red, white and blue of course. Here is an easy look to accomplish all of those items, festive blanket included 😉

Halogen(R) Eyelet Knit Tank [true to size, wearing in XS] // Mavi Jeans ‘Samantha’ Denim Jacket [size up if in between, wearing in small] // Jen7 Release Hem Stretch Skinny Ankle Jeans [true to size and so comfortable!] // Converse Chuck Taylor(R) ‘Shoreline’ Sneaker [true to size] // BaubleBar Moonlight Drop Earrings // Nordstrom Stargaze Woven Sea Grass Tote / Similar Nordstrom Stripe Woven Cornhusk Tote // Nautica Key Haven Quilted Throw

Now, if you’re lucky enough to find yourself at a pool, lake, river, ocean, beach, your dogs kiddy pool, just anywhere with water, you’ll need a festive USA approved coverup and swimsuit. I fell in love with this coverup on first sight and paired with a white swimsuit you can’t get any more red, white or blue than this for your day in the sun.

La Blanca Leaf It Cover-Up Tunic [true to size, wearing in XS] // La Blanca Petal Pusher One-Piece Swimsuit [true to size] // Sam Edelman Bay Cutout Slide Sandal [true to size]

Last but not least, maybe you have a party to attend that requires a little bit of an elevated look, have no fear, this dress is here. Could it get any more perfect for the 4th than this? I love this dress allows you to step it up a notch while remaining comfortable and can easily be dressed up with heels or down with sandals. Depending on the type of event you’re attending, I’ll leave your shoe choice up to you as I trust you’ll look perfectly festive regardless.

Felicity & Coco Becca Faux Wrap Maxi Dress [size down if in between, wearing in XS petite for 5’4] // Nordstrom Stargaze Woven Sea Grass Tote / Similar Nordstrom Stripe Woven Cornhusk Tote // BaubleBar Moonlight Drop Earrings // Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra [true to size] //
Sam Edelman Bay Cutout Slide Sandal [true to size]
