Time feels like it has been flying lately! I was seriously unprepared and unaware for how quickly the holiday weekend would creep up on us, once I’d realized what day it was I panicked realizing I didn’t have a thing to wear (well, a thing I wanted to wear) for the 4th! I have this American flag fanny pack and truthfully that’s about as patriotic as my closet gets – yes it’s as fabulous as it sounds. I’m a fan of America, I love a good reason to celebrate, but I’ve never been a fan of overtly expressing my patriotism by way of fashion. I love a good “subtly” patriotic look, and in a pinch the Zara sale was the perfect place to pick up a few red and blue pieces on the cheap that would be great to throw on all weekend long. (Seriously they’ve got tons of great stuff on sale that you could run out and pick up for under $25 right now.)
Thankfully I will actually be wearing this gorgeous white linen number by Clayton all summer long because it’s the perfect fabric/cut/weight/look for warm days in LA. I have a feeling it will be a travel essential this season too – I’m definitely going to want something chic, comfy, and easy like this when I’m up in Portland, Miami, and wherever else I end up this Summer! But for the sake of the 4th I love the idea of pairing a white look with a bold red lip, you can wear a look like that all day, all night.
However you choose to dress/celebrate this holiday weekend be safe and have some fun!!! If you’re staying in LA like me, take advantage of going out to those restaurants you’ve been wanting to go to – it’s going to be quiet around here! Niiiiice and quiet.
