I really thought we had another week before the 4th of July, but I just realized it’s next week. Summer always flies by so quickly and I don’t know why that surprises me year after year. We’re heading to Newport for the holiday week, and I just picked up a few things for the trip including these amazing striped sailor shorts and the Sail to Sable USA sweater.
Dressing in Americana is fun all season long, but why not go all out to celebrate on the 4th? Every year my aunt has a big all-day party at her lake house which involves swimming, tubing, water skiing, and lots of eating and drinking. I bought this star bikini top for the swimming portion of the day, but the bottom was sold out in my size, so I’m pairing it with a red high-waisted bottom for the perfect 4th of July swim look. For a change-into-dinner outfit as the sun goes down, I plan to wear my USA sweater with red earrings and these white jeans, a new purchase after borrowing a pair from a girlfriend. For the daytime portion of the party, I’m praying it’s warm enough out to wear these sailor shorts with a striped tee or red tank depending on the temps. And you better believe I’m bringing along my trusty American flag cap!
