First off, I told you all that my outfit was going to be quite patriotic - hopefully, I didn't disappoint. However, I hate the color red, and I'm still not sure where this top came from. I was tearing through my dresser when this shirt just jumped out at me. I have no idea how long I have had it or why on earth I bought it in the first place but it does make for something fantastically patriotic when paired with this little blue jumper. Happy fourth to all of you Americans out there, and if you're reading this blog from abroad, you should blow up some firecrackers anyhow.

I love your pattern matching. It doesn't follow any of the rules I've read, and looks so much better! Happy 4th of July, from elsewhere in California!

Rebecca said...

Happy 4th July to you! I like the mysterious shirt, an interesting shape and I like all the clashing prints in this outfit.

Well, no disappointment here! LOVE it! Once again, you take a sort of dowdy '80's element and make it fresh, modern and sexy! That kind of top was such a soccer mom top back in the '80's but you my dear are anything but. LOVE the mixed prints, LOVE the Americana reference, and the fact it is so utimately without a hint of kitch. The straw hat, a deep blue, just ices the firecracker cake.

Always a treat to visit this page. xo. -Bella Q

Eeep! This outfit so so good! Loving the mix-matched prints. I wish I had some firecrackers. Although I think they're illegal here anyway. Maybe sparklers will suffice haha.

Kelly said...

What a cute take on red, white, and blue! I love it! Hope you enjoy the holiday!

Kat said...

oh, and i know what you mean! usually the shorts i found are HUGE and its particularly bad for me as i have smaller hips so ridiculous to find perfect fitting shorts and jeans!

RenaTsan said...

Sara Lynn said...

lol I hate wearing red too. But this top looks awesome on you! I love the whole look, I wish I had such a cool hat and shoe collection :)

Ann. said...

You look beautiful. Cute hat!

Kisses.

Bad Taste Toast said...

That's a very interesting shirt, looks quite unique. You styled it so well with the jumper and hat! A very cute and rather understated patriotic look, but not too understated, so even a European like me sees the topic :)

Audrey J. said...

Yeah, this is so patriotic but still fashionable!

Ashlee said...

awesome.

i too sported the red, white, and blue.

isis said...

i think you subconsciously knew you would need that top a few years ago because it couldn't be a more perfectly cute 4th outfit. i am in love with the shorts!

Arielle said...

I'm absolutely in love with this outfit! I think this has to be my favorite 4th of July outfit I've seen so far. I love that you even had a blue hat haha..too cute

Very patriotic and not the child-ish kind either. You could wear this any time of the Summer!
It looks nice and cool, too.

Hope you had a good one!

Terri said...

I LIKE the mismatched fabrics--seems to make some sort of statement about the USA!

Piia said...
