What To Wear This July 4th

Happy Friday everyone!!! The weekend is finally here and it's time to cut loose and have some fun. This is also a very special weekend for those of us in the's Independence Day weekend! Monday is officially “the day” but I'll be doing all my celebrating during the weekend since I have to return to work Monday afternoon. But, I still have a 3 day weekend and I'm super excited about that. So, what are your plans for the 4th? Have you decided what you're going to wear yet? To help you with this obviously important decision I have picked out 5 outfits that would be perfect for your weekend celebrations based on what you decide to do...

#1: Lakeside BBQ
I'm not sure how everyone does it in the north but here in the south we celebrate most national holidays with a BBQ. The fact that this particular holiday falls in the summer makes it so much more awesome because we can take our grilling to the lake and throw in some swimming. If you have a pool and would rather have a nice pool party at your house the outfit I have picked out will work for that as well. Since you're going to be outside and in and out of the pool you obviously want to wear a swimsuit so I picked two cute ones that stick with the red, white, and blue color scheme for the holiday. I also threw in the cutest American flag shorts for when you're out of the lake or pool and want to cover up just a bit. The flip flops are perfect for this weekend and will be needed to walk around when not swimming and no one leaves home without their cell phone so why not use a decorative case. Also ladies, you can store all your feminine essentials in this super cute flag fringe bag. To snag any of the items in this pic click on the link above.

#2: Outdoor Concert
What better way to celebrate this country's freedom than by going to an awesome outdoor concert and rocking out to some great music on the lawn. Everyone has their own music preference but I'm a metal chick so whatever metal band is playing I'm there :) No matter who you're going to see you want to look stylish and patriotic so I have found the perfect outfit for you. Since you're going to be outside you probably want to wear a pair of shorts but instead of that tank top throw on a cute graphic tee and some patriotic sneakers for the ultimate concert look. Why sneakers and not sandals? Well this one really depends on the type of concert you go to. At a metal concert I'd never wear sandals or my toes would be so squished by the time it was over. Besides sneakers will provide more cushion since you'll be walking or standing a lot. Top this look off with a cute star phone case and an awesome fringe bag and you're good to go.

#3: Watching Fireworks
I'm sure many of you conclude your weekend festivities by either popping off some fireworks yourself or going to a park or somewhere in town where a company is having a fireworks show. Either way you want to look your best and since it will be night time definitely throw on some jeans instead of the shorts especially if you're popping the fireworks yourself. No one needs to get burned and the sparks coming off the fuse can sometimes get you when you least expect it or even the ashes falling from the sky can cause burns so it's better to be safe and wear those jeans. I picked out the cutest distressed skinny jeans and of course paired it with a patriotic tee and some red closed toe flats. This is a cute stylish outfit that is also comfortable and practical. Throw in a cute red purse to carry all your unmentionables and some glittery American flag earrings and it's time to go have some fun. You can get all these items by clicking on the above link.

#4: Girls Day
Sometimes you just want to celebrate your holiday hanging out with your girlfriends. You girls can do some shopping and grab some lunch but no matter what you can still show off your patriotic pride by wearing one or all of the colors in our wonderful flag. For this outfit I kept the style simple yet classy and of course cool since it's summertime. This cute red, white, and blue maxi dress is the perfect dress for your outing and a great dress for this summer season. Wear some cute white sandals to keep your feet cool and to show off your awesome pedicure and of course to be super comfortable and stylish. Grab this cute white floppy hat for that feminine touch and top it off with a white bag and of course some American flag thought I forgot to add that didn't you.

#5: Date Night
If you're like me then all you want to do is celebrate our country's freedom by having a date night with your sweetie. Nothing makes me happier than spending time with him and I also get to dress up since of course I want to always look my best when we are together. You can still look patriotic even on your date as long as you stick with the color scheme of our flag. For this outfit I went with a cute pair of white distressed skinny jeans since white jeans are so great for the summertime and I paired them with a beautiful red off-the-shoulder blouse. This style has been super popular this season so I'd be remiss not to include it in at least one of the outfit ideas...haha These adorable red bow sandals make this whole outfit super stylish yet comfortable in case you guys decide to go somewhere where you'll be doing a lot of walking. You can always dress it up even more by wearing a cute pair of red heels or wedges. Top off this great date night outfit with a red and white striped phone case and an American flag purse.
