How to Keep it Classic on the Fourth of July

Whew! It is only Wednesday and this week has been pretty hectic.

I am cleaning, washing, and packing for my trip to Nashville on Friday, which I still can’t believe is happening.

I also can’t even believe that we are only a few days away from July, I seriously felt like we just got into June.

Once I get back home the 4th of July will be only a couple of days away and I desperately have been trying to not add more clothes back into my closet since I just did a major closet dump.

I believe we plan on staying home since Karma will be by herself dealing with fireworks if we are gone too long and this will be her first year dealing with them without our other dog Diesel [I still miss him].

We have also been tossing around the idea of getting a BBQ grill for our back patio so we can start spending more time outside in the back yard with J. I swear that kid would stay out there all day if I let him.

With everything going on the last thing I wanted to do was worry about what I was going to wear for the 4th of July.

So I went into my closet and found a couple of things that gave me the 4th of July vibe and these are the looks I came up with.

The Outdoorsy Type

This is one of my favorite looks and more than likely what I will throw on this year. If you have to chase a toddler you can definitely switch out the flats for a pair of converse or vans and this will still look amazing. I am in love with the A New Day Shirts from Target because the fit well and hardly wrinkle.

These mom shorts are by far the most comfortable shorts I currently own, no riding up my butt and the length is perfect for my legs.


Let’s get Brunch

I would absolutely love to get brunch with my girls one of these days and if I do I will definitely be wearing this dress you can even switch out the chunky heel for the Target flats above if you aren’t about that extra added height.

I am 5’1, I need all the help I can get. Plus flats are just much more comfortable even when doing brunch. These Target shoes do run small so size up a half size, I wear a 6 1/2 and I need to go get a 7.

The dress I picked up at Boohoo last year I believe and still haven’t found anywhere I’d like to wear it because every where I go I have J with me.


Take me to the movies

I don’t know about you guys but I freeze every single time I go to the movies and I love wearing a sweater.

I know everyone is spending some much needed time grilling in their back yards on this holiday so this is the perfect time to catch a movie you missed. I cannot wait for Lion King to come out!


Since I transitioned my closet to more universal pieces that I could transition into all of the seasons it has been much easier to pull out something pretty classic and wear it for holidays while pairing it with a color that represents that holiday.

If you missed my post on how to build confidence in your wardrobe definitely read it. I feel like it helps a lot with how to keep what will work for you longer and get rid of what just serves a purpose for a short period of time.
