Outfit of the Day: 4th of July
Welcome to my first outfit of the day post! After I hauled my new flag shorts in my LA Haul, many of you asked to see an Outfit of the Day when I wore them on the 4th. I originally thought I would just pair them with a white v-neck, add some accessories, and be done, but I changed my mind. To enlarge any of the photos below, just click them and they will be full-size.
My high-waisted flag shorts are from a flea market in Santa Monica. I'm not sure of the name, but it's only open on Sundays. To say i'm obsessed with these is an understatement.
Instead of a plain white v-neck, I decided to add more color and wear one of my favorite summer tops. It's a sheer top from Forever 21 with stripes and my favorite part, the pockets. I like that the stripes are vertical, because the ones on my shorts are horizontal and I think that they balance out in that way.
For accessories, I said hey, why not more red, white, and blue? So that's what I did. I'm wearing a blue beaded bracelet with a gold cross, a cream colored one with crosses, and a reddish-coral skull one. All three are from Brandy Melville. To see a closer photo, click here. My white & rose gold watch is by Michael Kors. I scored it for 40% off on Nordstrom's website, and it's my staple summer jewelry piece.
If you happen to be curious about my nail color, I did a Nail of the Day post on it here.
Lastly, for my shoes I'm wearing some basic nude braided sandals by Steve Madden. I got these at Nordstrom Rack for a great deal. On my toes is Essie's 'Bikini So Teeny'- How cute is this color?
That's about it! Hopefully you all enjoyed my first fashion post. Please let me know in the comments if you want to see more. I'm going to the beach next week and would love to post some of my outfits when I dress up there.
Happy 4th of July and thanks for reading!
