What to Wear: Fourth of July

Fourth of July is quickly coming up. The forecast is finally looking hot and sunny, and I'm excited. I have no idea what exactly I'm doing yet, but I'm sure it'll be a good time. If you have your plans set, but don't have an outfit picked out just yet, I've got some ideas.

Parade and Fireworks

At night, I'll be standing overlooking the Hudson watching the Macy's fireworks show. If you're in for some patriotic activies such as a parade or watching fireworks, casual is the way to go. Sometimes it's hard to find the balance between corny and cute, but this look is relaxed and patriotic without screaming "AMERICA" in your face.

Beach and Poolside Fun

If you're heading to the beach or a friend's pool, slip into your favorite swimsuit and pair it with these great bright blue denim shorts, a simple white tank, and some comfy Havaianas. The beaded necklace adds some color and fun without being too overbearing.

Summer Barbeque and Party

I love this AE Belted Party Dress. Its elegant style is refreshing and flattering on any figure. Keep it simple with minimal jewelry such as these scallop studs and bangles. The dress would be great with wedges but for a Fourth of July barbeque or relaxed party these sandals by Steve Madden have the right amount of detail to complete the look.

What do you think about these Fourth of July looks? What are your plans?
