Happy Independence Day to my American friends and family. Let's get this party started!!
I welcome any reason to celebrate and share positivity, and there is nothing more dynamic and exhilarating than a fireworks show. I wasn't born an American but it's been a second home and love for the majority of my life. It's partly responsible for my passion for fashion and creative expression. Living in NYC inspires me, pushes me, and molds me everyday. We are all products of our experiences, and I'm happy to have the US be a apart of my journey of self-discovery and development.
I know many of us refrain from the cliche color code of national holidays and celebrations, but the trick is knowing how to coordinate an outfit that's wearable without looking like a billboard for patriotism. Think waving the flag versus wearing it!
I found this chambray overall on the sale rack at H&M for $20 last week (score), and given my obsession with jumpsuits I had to have it. It's perfect for the summer - light, cool and easy to wear - and a great alternative to denim because it's more flexible. It's also blue, so fitting for a 4th of July inspired look.
I have been coveting a Mansur Gavriel bag for over a year and last week that dream came through. My lovely friend and FIT alum, recently started working with the company and was sweet enough to hook a girl up...thanks Ali!
If you don't know by now, these gorgeous, utilitarian, Italian made bags are on the "must-have" list of every fashionista and style influencer. They are constantly sold out and have garnered Birkin-esque waiting lists, so getting your hands on one is major. Suffice to say, I was very happy to snatch this red bucket bag and just in time for the holiday weekend.
Now for the white! Wedges are a summer stable and this season is no different. I've had these Charlotte Russe espadrille style wedges for a few years and I hope they give me a few more. They are super high but super comfy - a rare combo and heaven sent for a woman who loves heels as much as I do.
This is a very relaxed outfit that's perfect for a barbecue or a casual day out, but can easily transition to a rooftop fireworks viewing party. I kept the accessories minimal with a pair of RayBan wayfarer, a Bulova watch and a few rings.
So, there you have - my red, blue and white - 4th of July inspired outfit. It's chic, effortless, wearable and still says "Happy Birthday America!" (click images to enlarge)
