Baby, You're A Firework

As I've mentioned in my last few Flashback Friday posts I love dressing for the holidays ~ whatever the holiday is ~ and the Fourth of July is one of my favorites!  There are so many cute outfit ideas for any way you celebrate Independence Day ~ from backyard picnics, to a boat cruise on the lake, fireworks with friends, a baseball game with the family or just relaxing at home.  I'm loving this Flower Burst Top from The Loft Boutique.  The flower design looks like fireworks!  I paired it with navy relaxed pants (SOOOO comfy!!) but it would be equally cute with jeans (even distressed denim like this pair to dress it down a bit) or shorts (make'em red!).

Savvy Style Tip ~ Theme or holiday dressing can be fun but don't overdo it!  Pick one or two pieces, like a flag tank and red and white striped shoes for The Fourth or sequined pants and glitzy earrings for New Years, and keep the rest simple/neutral.  You want to look like your are ready for the holiday but not crazy!

~ What I'm Wearing ~
Flower Burst Top: The Loft Boutique
Navy Relaxed Pants: The Loft Boutique
Tote: The one featured is sold out (I bought it!) but I found THIS ONE that's reversible, comes in several colors and is under $50!  Every girl needs a great tote!
White Wedge Sandals: I'm loving THESE with the cork wedge!
Sunnies: SIMILAR

These earrings are sold out.  I found a similar pair HERE and THIS PAIR would be perfect for The Fourth!  Both pairs can be worn multiple ways.

Closet Staple ~ Nude Heels

What lengthens legs and goes with everything?  Nude heels!  Nude heels are a no-brainer for  just about every outfit from dressing up denim, completing an evening look as well as just about any day ensemble.  They are seasonless, go with everything, and lengthen legs.  When I work with a client the first pair of shoes we go shopping for, if they don't already own a pair, are nude heels.  The heels don't have to be super high either.  Kitten heels or even a great pair of pointy toe skimmers will give the same effect if you aren't a high-heel girl.  

Savvy Style Tip ~ nude sandals and wedges are great for warmer months when you want to show off that pretty summer pedi ~ and they look great with shorts!

1 ~ Steve Madden / 2 ~ Ted Baker / 3 ~ Kurt Geiger / 4 ~ TOPSHOP / 5 ~ Valentino /
6 ~ Unique Vintage / 7 ~ BCBGeneration / 8 ~ Dee Keller / 9 ~ Charles by Charles David /
10 ~ Charles by Charles David / 11 ~ Madden Girl

Below are some nude perfect-for-summer styles:

Summer Boho Vibes

I normally stick with classic styles in my wardrobe but this fringey top put out such a fun summer boho vibe I had to try it!  I paired it with two boho inspired necklaces (I love layering jewelry!), slightly distressed skinny jeans (cuffed for the warmer weather and the beach location), a classic straw tote and super cute (and comfy) animal print wedges.  

Savvy Style Tip: Head-to-toe theme or trend dressing is okay for teens and twenties but as you get older only wear a piece or two of a theme or trend at a time and go with more classic pieces for the rest of your outfit. 

~ What I'm Wearing ~

Crochet Fringe Top / Distressed Jeans - Same without the distressing / Straw Tote - Similar / Dream Catcher Necklace / Gold Cluster Necklace - Similar / Giraffe Crossover Wedge



Head to toe look is from The Loft Boutique in beautiful Hiawassee, Georgia and styled by me!
