If you came to get a Carrie Underwood song stuck in your head (or to miss your beloved childhood Samantha doll), read my blog post title. If you just came for the 4th of July weekend sales – hey, I respect that – scroll to the bottom. For outfit deets on this festive 4th of July look, read on!
Whether you’re going out on the boat, hanging at a backyard barbecue, or just watching fireworks with your boo, this romper can do it all. Seeing as I like to procrastinate plan-making until the very last second, I scooped up this versatile piece at Tres Carmen right when I saw it. With its ruffle hem, flattering vertical stripes, and sweet tie detail, my wallet and I didn’t stand a chance.
To accessorize, I went with simple wedges, tortoise shell sunglasses, dainty gold jewels, and even threw some more stripes into the mix with this fun Mar Y Sol tote. Because hey, on the 4th (/always?), the stripe limit does not exist. To finish off the look, I opted for a pop of red in the form of one of my favorite NYX matte lipsticks. Just like our founding fathers intended.
