While I haven't been home for July 4th these past couple years, I still like to participate in the patriotism wherever I am (usually Europe). Anyway, these two outfits really cover all of the graphic print options when it comes to this holiday- on top or on bottom. I hope this post helps you take your graphic print pick and assists you in your styling endeavors! Enjoy. xo
Wearing:// Top: Wildfox Couture, Jeans: Made-well (These are awesome!), Shoes: Converse, Sunnies: Wildfox Couture, Bralette: VS Pink
This first outfit is definitely my preferred choice, mostly because I'm not a huge shorts fan. Around this time of the month, there is a plethora of patriotic pieces available at just about any store, from the gaudy sequin infused to the rather simple faded flag. Whatever your choice may be, there are in fact other options than those white shorts you wear every.single.day during the summer (guilty). On a recent shopping adventure, I discovered these uber comfortable high-waisted jeans from Made-well. In addition to having a stretchy feel, the length can easily carry you into the nighttime for chilly beach fireworks. While most of the fashion conscious will lean towards white flat-forms or combat boots, the practicality just isn't there- so converse are acceptable in this case. For a flirty touch, a lace bralette underneath a slight-muscle tee like mine adds a hint of personality, as well as my quirky USA shaped necklace.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I leave Monday morning for Prague, so I'm not quite sure how much I'll be posting between all of the photography and the jam-packed itinerary. Although, I am planning to schedule some posts, so that's always good. :D Nervous yet excited, but I'm glad I'll be getting some pretty awesome pictures (trip is with National Geographic for photography). Talk soon! x
