Fourth of July

Fourth of July

I thought it would be fun to do a 4th of July outfit inspiration post. These were all items from my closet, and hopefully you have some similar items in your’s! Mix and match any of your nautical stripe shirts, blue oxfords or novelty red-white-and-blue tops with either white or denim shorts. If you’re missing  a pop of red, add your favorite red nail polish or lipstick. And for those of you who will be spending time by the pool, don’t forget your red-white-and-blue sundresses for your cover-up!  Depending on your activity, throw on sandals or sneakers and a denim cap and sunglasses for sun protection… boom! Your done! 😀

All of these items just so happen to be staples in my wardrobe that are on major repeat year round… you probably already know this -ha! After all, I am very proud to be an American. Happy Fourth of July everyone!

The Mesh Top Dilemma

Gap Mesh Sweater Top

I’ve been seeing mesh tops everywhere this summer! Am I the only one? I came across this one at the Gap, and I had to have it! However, they are kinda tricky since they are so obviously see through -ha!Gap Mesh Sweater Top

I’ve been having fun wearing this top in a couple different ways. I’ve worn it casually (like in this picture) with my favorite racerback pullover bra (that I seem to wear all the time during the summer).Gap Mesh Sweater Top

I’ve also worn it on a girls night out with my black pants from the Gap and black sandals , again with my racerback bra. And, can I just say, I felt kinda cool in this outfit- just enough edge without going over board. Anyway, the racerback bra has been essential in making the top a little less tricky, but I’ve also worn it with a camisole (black, white or nude). I’ve even worn it with my jean shorts as a cover up! Just in case you want to have fun with a mesh top too, I also like these mesh tops- here, here, here and here.
