4th of July outfits & Ask the Stylist

Happy 4th of July! I’ve been so busy cleaning the house, pruning the yard, planning the menu and starting to bake and cook for tomorrow’s big party that I have entirely forgotten to buy anything new for 4th of July to wear! I did splurge on an amazing bathrobe though from Newport Collection when I was looking for patriotic pillows for our back patio from the Newport Collection line. Since we are celebrating our 4th of July in Sweden – no fireworks for us. So after the guests have left, we’ll fire up the sauna and I am planning on having an ice cold drink relaxing in the back patio wearing the bathrobe.. but I swear, I will be pulling together a nice outfit for the party – right from my closet!! Right now I’m looking options from a little red dress (tad too preppy?) to navy-white striped tee with white linen pants (tad too sailor?) to relaxed blue and white maxi-dress with red accessories. I also have a killer blue and white polka dot scarf I’d like to wear. I won’t be sporting stars in any shape or form, but it’s OK – you don’t have to look like the American flag to be dressed up in the Independence Day spirit.

Perfect for fireworks! Combine stripes and polka dots instead of stars for trendier look. Source: atlantic-pacific.blogspot.com via Amanda on Pinterest

See? It looks cute. Stripes and polka dots. This is a little over the top, but you are allowed to go this far for the Independence day celebrations. Just don’t repeat on other days. Source: avagracescloset.blogspot.se via Skimbaco on Pinterest
