I do not wear a whole lot of color – I prefer sticking to my grays, blacks and whites with the occasional olive or wine red item in my closet. Holidays are the few times a year where all bets are off and I sport the colors. Muted, muffled colors, but colors.
I really love this outfit for the 4th because it’s festive, sexy but casual and it has a slight retro feel to it. The pieces can also be easily swapped out to create a few different 4th looks; swap the heels for sandals for a more casual look or swap the denim shorts for white and go more nautical.
A word of caution for the shorts. I ordered the small and the medium to find my best fit and I was not 100% happy with the fit on either but went with the medium. The small fit my butt and my waist, but was so short through the torso they weren’t really high waist anymore and the cuffs cut into my thighs. The medium however, fit really nice around my thighs and they definitely qualified for high rise but the waist is way too big (which is okay for this outfit because the shirt isn’t super tight) and there is a bit too much fabric through my lower abs. I will definitely have these altered in the near future.
We’re headed out for fireworks (and maybe possibly ice cream if I can convince my husband). What are your plans for the 4th?
