Another day closer to the holiday weekend has me counting down the hours until I get to bust out the red, white and blue and sip watermelon mojitos by the pool. Whose with me? I’m getting ready for July 4th today with a little help from Charming Charlie. I plan on beating the heat the best way I know how- some cut offs, all white, and my favorite sunnies. Ok maybe that watermelon mojito might help cool me down too so now that I think about it, I might need to have 2 of those 🙂
Embroidery is timeless and always will be! As far as trends go, this is one that always catches my eye in any store that I go in. I love mixing old with new when it comes to clothing, colors, and especially trends. White on white might seem like a new trend that you are seeing, but it could not be more timeless. If done properly it is such a flattering look. With all of this Houston heat, I chose to pair this cute embroidered top white my go-to white shorts, but a pair of white jeans would also look great with this ensemble. My favorite pair of white skinnies are these Joes jeans.
White jeans are definitely one piece of clothing that I suggest not skimping on because if someone has to debate if you are wearing white leggings or white skinny jeans, you are probably going to regret not spending those extra dollars. White in general is a color you want to make sure the quality of the clothing is well..high quality. Anything that is too tight or see through, white amplifies. So if you are questioning it in the store, move on to the next piece. If you are scared to go all white, try a top that is predominantly white with small pops of color. It will help you ease into the look instead of diving straight in.
If you still aren’t sure what you will be wearing for July 4th, feel free to check out my other holiday inspired outfit post here. I also rounded up all of my favorite red, white and blue picks here in case you are a gal that likes her options. Whatever your plans may be for the holiday weekend, I hope you have a great one!
