fourth of july ootd

Happy Fourth of July to all my fellow Americans! I am so proud of the country I live in and to be able to celebrate 241 years of the great USA. As I scrolled through instagram this past week, I saw countless Americana outfits and started to realize that I never did a post for the Fourth. So, better late than never, here is my Independence Day ootd. Sadly I won't get to wear this on the fourth because I am lifeguarding most of the day, but if I was watching fireworks this would be the choice! 

This lovely ruffle blouse has been featured on the blog before, but since I am trying to cut down on spending for the month of July, I thought I could outfit repeat just a couple of times. I love the way the ruffles drape down the front, and the crisp white of the top reminds me of American summers. 

I recently got these retro high-waisted jean shorts from Gap and I think they are perfect for the holiday. I love wearing retro pieces during the summer like these because the remind me of the 50s- a time period in which I have always admired the fashion! 

And for shoes I wore my classic white converse because I wanted to round out the retro theme going on here. This look just screams All-American and summer! 

Thanks for reading! I hope you have a happy and safe Independence Day! If you are American, be thankful of the fact that you live in a country that is free and one of the most powerful countries in the world. Always respect your leaders, even if they are different from you, and be proud to be an American!

As always,
