If y'all know me in life, you know that I enjoy dressing up for the 4th of July, but without being all HEY IT'S THE FOURTH OF JULY!!!  SEE MY STARS?? SEE MY STRIPES???? GO 'MERICA!!!!

(Actually, I kind of enjoy a good ol' MERICA outfit.  BUT for those who wanna be a tad more, ahem, SUBTLE, then this post is for you.)

(P.S. I can guarantee with near certainty that my husband will hate this dress, because of the looser fit. But ain't no mama want to wear bodycon while convincing her kiddos that the FIREWORKS ARE PRETTY AND NOT AT ALL SCARY.  This is a holiday built for comfort in my opinion. And getting death gripped during the fireworks.) 

Anyway, the past few years, I've developed a little fashion formula for the fourth. Why? Mainly because it's fun to say 3 times fast. Go ahead and try, I'll wait.

Now that that's out of the way, ready for the formula? It goes like this:

white dress or romper (because it's a summer staple) 

PLUS

denim vest or jacket (because it's an ALWAYS staple) 

PLUS

red shoes (because YOU ARE FUN AND SASSY AND OTHERS NEED TO KNOW IT).

EQUALS? 

GO 'MERICA,
