The Independence Day holiday is coming up next Monday
for those who live in the United States-
How this unreal spring and summer is flying by!
This year the 4th of July will not be like any other for us, and for many others
We are still mostly sheltering indoors, with only a few exceptions
The irony of celebrating our country's freedom under these circumstances
I am very happy, however, for those of you who will be able to gather
with family and friends for this upcoming long holiday weekend
We still plan to enjoy the outdoors, in a masked and distanced kind of way
For this post, I decided to show a few outfits inspired by the holiday
First, my "Hello Sailor" navy blue and white striped top
paired with a denim skirt
This top is perfect for a summer holiday, even more so for me
because I live on an island near Annapolis, Maryland
This area is a major sailing ⛵️ capitals on the eastern seaboard-
so just about everyone you see is indeed a sailor!
The skirt is from Gap and I have had it for several years
It is a classic cut with details that I love
The skirt is an easy to wear A-line style with lace up waist and an inverted center front pleat
Plus, it has what all of my favorite clothes have-big pockets!
Carrying my bright red fabric ring handle bag
that can also be used as a fold over clutch
Wearing summery accessories and jewelry:
Red neck tie and silver knot bracelet with hoop earrings
Nothing screams summer like espadrilles!
This lace up pair is in navy blue and white stripes
to go with the holiday theme
Another red, white and blue outfit for this patriotic holiday
Red roll tab sleeve top worn with white denim straight leg jeans
Carrying my sixties vintage white wicker and Lucite bag
I love that you can see through to the Psychedelic print fabric lining!
Whimsical camera pendent and silver hoop earrings for jewelry
Some fun and casual accessories:
Red, white and blue striped ribbon belt, polka dot head scarf
and cherries earrings
Tan leather low heel ankle strap sandals
to finish the look
Here's a peek back at a previous 4th of July outfit, from 2017
The graphic tee shirt is Disney's character Tinker Bell spreading fairy dust
over a heart shaped US flag motif
Hey Tink, the whole earth could really use some magic sprinkles now
Picnic food to enjoy on our porch
Some red, white and purple (well, almost blue)
flowers for you to enjoy!
That's for stopping by
and I wish everyone a good week and weekend!
