This weekend I’m channeling my festive holiday spirit and paying tribute to the American flag by wearing red, white and blue. We have close college friends in town from L.A. with no real agenda other than to relax, picnic in the backyard and enjoy some good food. Last year I shared a 4th of July inspired tablescape on the blog, seen here, which will come in handy for this year’s celebration as well. But given that I’m 37 weeks pregnant, I’m trying to take it easy—so this July 4th will be pretty low key. Thankfully our friends are super laid back and I don’t feel the need to “entertain.” In fact, tonight we grilled burgers, ate off paper plates, and nibbled on potato chips straight out of the bag. Nothing fancy here, but we’re happy campers in good company.
To kick of the holiday weekend, I went with a casual look to mimic our relaxed and carefree itinerary. These slouchy-fit overalls paired with a red and white stripped tee, make for a festive (and comfortable) ensemble. For an extra pop of color, I wore red sunglasses and lipstick—I just love a bright lip color, especially in summer! In case you’re looking for patriotic outfit inspiration, below I link to these Free People overalls and other similar styles.
Hope you have a fun, long weekend with family and friends! Happy 4th of July!
