Red, White and BOOM!

I truly cannot believe how quickly time flies... next week is the 4th of July! How will you be celebrating? I am planning on visiting my "big" (big sister in my sorority) in Annapolis! I am so excited because I have not seen her in a year which is entirely too long to be apart.

I am big on dressing for the occasion. Meaning, you can usually find me decked out in red, white and blue. This year I happened to pop into Old Navy and find a great dress in the kid's section (you know how I love shopping in the children's sections). This dress isn't really great quality but is fun enough for a one time wear.

The price was under $20 which made it an absolute steal. I am usually a 2/4 in dresses and the largest size (16) fit perfectly. It is a little bit obnoxious/ridiculous but I think that's what I love about it. I plan on adding some red accessories to complete the American look.

This is my back up dress... It is the J. Crew Stripe Button Front Dress. It's simple and comfortable (and a little more grown up ha!).
If you are unsure what you are going to wear for the fourth, here is some red, white and blue inspiration:

What are you wearing for the fourth or are you a last minute kind of gal? Have a fabulous day!

This post made me realize that I have absolutely no clue what I'm wearing! There is a big concert in Lexington called Red, White, and Boom, so your title made me laugh! I need to figure out something cute to wear to it!

Just bought that J Crew dress last week and had so much fun styling it in the store. Ended up with a skinny yellow rope belt, but red, hot pink, gold, silver, green etc would all look adorable. I also did it with a white ribbed tank underneath unbuttoned to the waist, great with a big necklace. I love me so RW&B for the fourth - I will be celebrating on the Outer Banks.

This post makes me so excited for the 4th! I'm not sure what I'm doing yet for that day, but I'm sure I'll celebrate in an awesome outfit.

My dress for the 4th is navy blue as well! I found it at the ralph lauren store and the ruffles are so cute! I can't wait to wear it! Hope you have a wonderful 4th of july!

I love July 4th but so far I haven't figured out an outfit yet!

That Old Navy dress is super cute! I might have to splurge on the Lilly one, though!
