I can’t believe that we are already in the middle of June. Huh? What? That means July 4th is just around the corner. And that means that summer will have come and gone in the blink of an eye. I might begin to panic and start binge eating hot dogs and slamming popsicles just to make sure I soak up every single bit of summer. 😉
So with the 4th coming up, I wanted to give y’all some RED, WHITE, and BLUE inspiration in plenty of time to plan your outfits for your days at the lake, your barbecues, and your fireworks shows. I showed you ladies THIS top a couple of weeks ago with distressed cut-offs, navy lace-up sandals (more sizes available at Nordstrom HERE), and a beaded clutch (see that post HERE). Today I thought I would show you the same top with jeans, a red tote and chambray striped wedges!
Doesn’t this outfit make you want to grill something, eat strawberry shortcake, and swirl some sparklers around?
Here I am feeling all sorts of festive. 😉
I had no idea how much I would wear this top, but I love how delicate and gauzy it is (it definitely needs a cami)…..and I’ve found myself reaching for it frequently. And now it’s ON SALE! And y’all! A reader (thank you Reesey!) found the exact same tote for 40% OFF at Nordstrom (also comes in black and white)!!!!
And y’all. THE WEDGES had me at chambray. And then they doubled down with stripes. And the cork! And the rope detailing! And the ankle ties! Yep, they’re all good. I found them to be true to size. They are quite high, but they are also quite comfy!
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
And here’s a close up of the bracelets c/o Accessory Concierge! I forgot to get a close up with the outfit above, but I wore them with my $34 dress and MUST HAVE denim jacket a couple of weeks ago! Use the code turq20 for 20% OFF the bracelet stack!!!
Here’s the entire outfit, just in case you want to see it again.
$34 dress / MUST HAVE jacket / multi-color horn necklace (sorry, no code)/ multi-layer turquoise beads / bracelet trio (20% OFF with code turq20)/ scalloped tote/ similar sandals from same maker ON SALE
Now, back to red, white, and blue inspiration! I realize that jeans and a long sleeve blouse isn’t exactly weather appropriate for many of us out there in the throws of summer…so here are some other options for tops at various price points!
And check out THESE white shorts that would be perfect for many of the above tops! These are women’s sizing, not junior’s.
Or check out THESE navy shorts! Who doesn’t love a drawstring. #nobody #thatswho
You could of course also go with roll cuff denim shorts like, and you can find lots to choose from in various washes and lengths HERE.
And check out THIS dress. ON SALE! Somebody point me towards a parade!
My maxi from a couple of weeks ago could also be great for the 4th! For size reference, I’m wearing a petite small in the dress. It’s a racerback, and would be so cute without a jacket and white shoreline converse for a much more casual look.
maxi dress / BEST STRAPLESS BRA EVER (bra for smaller cup sizes HERE)/ MUST HAVE denim jacket / cross body / cork wedges ON SALE / sunglasses / open hoop charm earrings / gold bangle / abalone bangle / $18 necklace
AND NOW SOME SALE ITEMS!
Do you remember these frayed hem jeans I showed you awhile ago? Well, now they are 40% OFF, making them UNDER $40! FOR JEANS! I didn’t keep them because I was looking for a lighter wash, but now I’m considering getting them for fall because the frayed hem will be so cute with booties! And at $38, it makes it easy to buy something for fall! I’m wearing my regular 27 in this picture, but I think I might size down so they’ll be more fitted (since they are so stretchy).
Click HERE for the jeans!
And if you are still on the hunt for the perfect white jean, I’ve got several options! You know I love THESE (but apparently people either love or hate them), and THESE have caught my eye recently. They are woman’s sizing, a more relaxed fit, and they can be cuffed. I thought some of you might be interested in them, especially now that they are ON SALE!

Have a wonderful Wednesday ladies! See you back here on Friday with some swimsuit and cover-up picks from me, some pics from my life, and possibly even a dip recipe!
