Hi, friends! Happy Independence Day!
…Today everyone’s dressed up in their Reds, Whites and Blues and, well… I am not an exception! 🙂 But there’re a few other things about this outfit aside from it being, well, All-American! And those things are: 1. This outfit can be worn long anytime after we’re done celebrating…
…And 2. Despite it being All-American, it does not contain any denim! 🙂 Yes, no denim today, and it isn’t because I don’t like wearing my denim! I’ve been living in these denim cut-offs all summer! It’s because sometimes it’s good to diversify things a bit sometimes! 🙂
So, here’s this outfit’s breakdown: 🙂
The All-American Outfit that isn’t Denim:
- I just love simple, comfy and very American Tee! It’s cotton with a bit of polyester which makes it breathable, yet it also fits well. You can actually see how on a few photos I am wearing it tied in a front knot because I it was soooooo hot here in LA when I was shooting these photos! 🙂
- The red skirt. This is what I gave preference today instead of my favorite denim! But isn’t this skirt pretty? (Also similar here for under $50) And what I love best about it is that it’s one of those classic wardrobe pieces that you can wear over and over again creating different looks and styles depending on how you decide to accessorize it. (Oh, and according to the Fall Fashion Week forecast we’ll be seeing lots of red over the next few seasons, so it looks like it’s worth investing in all your favorite reds these days 🙂 ) . This versatile skirt worn with a nice cami will make a great choice for a date-night or a cocktail party. Yet, worn with a classic blouse you can also wear it to work! And today – it’s all about being casual! 🙂
- I went for a few super-simple summery accessories: this Urban Outfitters Straw Bag (that you’ve already seen in a few of my summertime style posts!) and my favorite straw platforms that I love for their ability to elongate my legs while being super-comfy and summery!
So… what are you doing today? Are you barbecuing? Are you going out or inviting your friends in? 🙂 Well, no matter what it’s going to be, just have fun! And do something extra nice for yourself, OK? Promise? 🙂
…And just for fun… This is my favorite “American Bear”! Isn’t he cute? Oh, and here’s a little confession that I hope will make you smile: I love stuffed animals! …I know, I know: I am a grown up! But come on! It’s OK to be a kid sometimes, especially if it makes you smile! Right? 🙂…Oh, and don’t forget to treat yourself with something sweet today 🙂 such as the Healthy Blue Blondies, for instance!
