Hahah beaches, vats up!?! It has been a minute. LIKE AN HOUR ACTUALLY.
You know.. things happen, and priorities can shift a bit, but I’m trying to stay focused! So here I am. 🙂
I thought what better way to get back into the swing of things, other than a 4th of July post for all of my American/America loving beaches; despite its crazy leader. Right?
With it being the FOURTH of July, I’m going to share with you FOUR looks! An assortment of fits to go out in for just about any occasion. You can call them outfits. Lololol. This is where you tell me I’m funny…
For this first look he’s giving you casual cookout vibes with a bit of flash.
My linen shirt is perfect for 2 reasons: 1) It’s lightweight, so you’re not sweating your ass off. A plus! 2) It has stripes, so you’re festive. I paired this with my elastic band shorts. You know, so you can eat however much you’d like and not feel too guilty. It moves with you!
A lot of people travel to much warmer areas than what they’re typically used to. Like the beach, perhaps? Yes, that’s an unnecessary plug hehe. There’s this saying: The warmer the weather, the shorter the sleeves. I actually made that up.
Here I chose to pair a white tank with red striped shorts AND accessorized with a star-covered, navy bandana! Festive af! This particular bandana is lightweight, so I almost forgot it was tied around my neck, in the near 90 degree weather. This is a cute way to jazz up your outfit.
This look is simple. Want to be casual or cute? How about both! If I’m not dressed up for work, then I’m usually wearing drawstring or elastic band shorts. They’re so easy to work with. I can’t tell you how comfortable they are. You just kinda have to try them for yourself 😉
I paired these navy striped shorts with a plain red tee, tucked in, to give it a little life! Just so it wasn’t TOO casual. To keep the festive-ness going, and to not take away from the outfit, I opted for white vans.
Did I mention that I like themes? I might as well wrap an American flag around my body at this point.
This red and white striped shirt paired oh so well with my star-covered navy shorts AND star-covered bandana. It’s almost too perfect. The shorts are elastic band as well. If I’m not wearing elastic band, then they’re more than likely drawstring. THEY’RE JUST SO DAMN COMFORTABLE!
Noticed I gave you variations of ways to wear your shirt. If needed to dress it up a bit, you can totally tuck it in. But if you wanted to remain casual, just do a half tuck in the front.
For those of you who like a shorter inseam, you can follow my lead and cuff your shorts! It’s a nice touch and adds a little umph to your fit!
So there you are! Four Independence Day looks to get you in the spirit!
A MASSIVE shoutout to my beautiful little sister for dealing with my diva-ish ways and taking all of these photos for me! We had a blast! Love you lots, little bit! xoxo
Beaches, be sure to comment and let me know which look is your favorite, AND let me know your fun plans you have for the fourth!
