The Fourth of July attire consists of a red, white and blue color scheme. It is your job to compile an outfit consisting of these primary colors, in order to show your holiday spirit. It is just the American way!
The weather on the Fourth of July in Boulder, Colorado was quite warm, so I dressed accordingly. While I do not own any American flag printed attire, I had clothes and accessories that involved the colors of red, blue, and white.
Holidays are great opportunities to get a little playful with your outfitts, which takes the stress of feeling morally obligated to look cute. Holidays are meant to dress in spirited attire, and much less about dressing in cute, fashion-forward, and trendy outfits.
My outfit for the Fourth of July consisted of an cream colored off-the-shoulder crop top that was paired with light-wash, high-waisted, floral-printed shorts. The shorts added a playful element to my outfit, and allowed me to show a part of my personality within my outfit. I took advantage of the scarf trend and accessorized my outfit with a red paisley scarf that I tied around my neck. In order to protect my eyes from the intense sun rays, a pair of blue, circular sunglasses was incorporated into my outfit.
My black platform sneakers were the only part of my outfit that did not abide by the dress color, or the color code, of the holiday.

I had so much fun compiling this outfit together, as it also allowed me to incorporate some of my favorite pieces from my wardrobe into one outfit. My high-waisted shorts and my red, paisley scarf are some of my favorite pieces that I do not find myself wearing enough.
Hope you had a safe and fashionable Fourth of July! I hope you also had just as much fun as your patriotic outfit!
