summer style flashback: fourth of july!

Hey, everybody! Now, I know that the weather is varying greatly all over the United States (scorching hot in the Southwest, chilly in the Northeast, and ??? everywhere else!), but here in NC, the weather is still in the 70's, 80's, and even occasionally 90's, so this look is still wearable! I wore this outfit back during the summer for the Fourth of July, and loved that I got to incorporate some of my favorite pieces to make a very comfy and patriotic look! 

The dual texture of the white lace top and the thick, linen striped shorts provided a nice visual contrast that dresses the look up a bit from your usual navy and white garb. The pop of red from this Southern Proper hat finishes it off nicely. Plus, I can't help but smile every time I see that adorable black and white embroidered dog! :)

I wore this outfit out to a cookout with family and friends, as well as an elaborate fireworks display, courtesy of my dad, brother, and friends. I can't say that we didn't end up with a firework or two on the roof, as they were having a few "test runs" before the show ;)! Regardless, we all ended up having a great time (and lots of food too!).  

Top: Abercrombie and Fitch (old, but love this one!)
Shorts: J.Crew
Hat: Southern Proper (also available here!)
Watch: Michael Kors
Sandals: Target
Sunglasses: Toms

I'm finding myself wanting to break out this outfit again now! Let me know in the comments what look you rocked for the Fourth of July, as well as what you and your family did to celebrate our country's independence. Thank you so much for taking time to read over my latest blog post, and I hope you all have a fabulous day!

love, p&p
