Independence Day Soiree

 However you plan to spend July 4th, you gotta celebrate in style! Living so close to D.C., I am taking advantage of it and heading into the district to see the National Fireworks display. Those who have never seen it should really check them out. They are incredible!

July 4th is one of my favorite holidays for many reasons. The main reason is fireworks. I love them!! But I also love the style options. Red White & Blue is probably my favorite color combo (aside from Pink & Green) and there are so many ways to achieve the perfect Independence Day ensemble.

Lots of places have a community fireworks show, and I have gone a few times to the one my town puts on and they are great! We typically sat on the ground or on a blanket, so I would always opt for a more causal outfit like this:

top: Polo Outlet (old) | shorts: J.Crew | shoes: Ann Taylor Loft (old) | headband: NY&Co. (old)

"Nantucket Casual":
This is an ongoing joke in my family because a lot of places on Nantucket Island prefer for guests to dress "Nantucket Casual" meaning ladies: dresses/skirts and men: khakis and blazers (in other words, not very casual). This is typically referred to as "Country Club Casual"or "Semi Casual", so if you will be spending the evening somewhere dressier, this is my pick:
dress | belt | shoes

If any of you were stuck on what to wear for the 4th, I hope this helped you out! How do you plan to spend Independence day? And what will you be wearing?
