The whole weekend I’ve been shopping picks for 4th of July (order by Monday and they will arrive in time for the Holiday). I’ve covered dresses and shoes (my favorite) so today is everything else. Tops, shorts and accessories. Did I miss anything?!? #maybehats #ilovehats

4th of July Tops

Starting at the top … literally. Because I’m not a shorts gal and D.C. is way too hot for jeans-you will mostly see me wear these tops with a denim skirt. I snagged a great one at target a month or so ago (similar) and I’ve been tossing it on every weekend since. 

Because it’s July 4th and you should wear Stars. I think I’m partial to the white with blue but they are both cute. Lucky T’s are incredible soft and fit TTS. This one also has a tie in the back making it very unique.  #nothingboringhere

Why wear stripes when your shirt can just talk about them instead. A perfect slogan T in a great color. If between – size up.

If you need to take it up a notch then this silk equipment Shirt is perfect. I love how the Stars form wavy stripes. It also comes in a sleeveless button down. I often size up in this brand to make the shirt feel looser. #personalpreference

4th of July Shorts

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a shorts gal but I did include a few I thought were adorable as well as the four pairs I actually own. 

These two were just too cute. If cut-off denim is your jam then you should buy these immediately (and send me a pic). Star shorts by Hudson (love this brand) and Stars and Stripes shorts by SP Black #screamsholiday

These are the denim shorts I actually own. I wore them long like this for 3? years and then this summer, I hacked off 5 inches and folded them over. Size down if between. I wear a 4 (normally a 28 in denim). 

These are the Boden shorts I actually own (Richmond). I have coral and pink both in the 4 inch leg (although there are many a days I think I would prefer the 6 inch).  For the holiday I would pick red or navy.  Pair these red shorts with the silk shirt above, add the tassel earrings below and you have the perfect festive look.

This is the pair of shorts I added to my collection this summer (and the pair I am wearing in the featured image). They are Merona Shorts from Target. Currently on sale for $12. The Navy stripe is really almost grey.  The USA T-shirt in the featured image is also from Target and bargain priced. #bargainaddition

4th of July Accessories

Because it’s 4th of July you should include a few fireworks … I mean accessories.  Tassel earrings do the trick!! And for purses you are either carrying tons of stuff (think tote) or you want to be hands free (think back pack).  These are some of my favorites!

It’s 4th of July so why not put something a little fun and unexpected in your ears?  The beauty of these Baublebar earrings is that they are lightweight so they won’t kill your ears after a few hours of wearing them.

If I only bought one backpack for the rest of my life it would be from Herschel Supply Co.  They are made to last.  I love the leather strap detail on this one and the full cover … no one is getting in there without your knowledge.

Totes are they way to go when you need to carry … um, everything.  I like the stripes on this one and the fact you can reverse it when you tire of the stripes.  #twoforone

This Sole Society tote has a sturdy bottom for resting on the ground which makes it very usable. Holds tons of stuff!!  #importantfeature

That’s the end of the July 4th round up. If you missed the other two 4th of July Edits, you can find the Dress Edit here and the Shoe Edit here!

Next week I will be talking travel style (because I’m traveling again …). If anyone has any good recommendations in Yuba City … anyone?!?  Anyone?!? 

Enjoy the last bit of the weekend!
