I am seriously bumming that its Monday again, time really flies when you're having fun. So in a flashback to last weekend I wanted to share with you what I wore to celebrate July 4th. I decided early on that red, white and blue would be my colors of choice but then I quickly realized that I really don't own anything red. I'm not exactly sure why since I'm never one to shy away from bright colors but I tend to gravitate towards other hues leaving a lack of red in my closet. Now I'm on the hunt for the perfect red dress (since my spending freeze is now officially over, wooohoooo).
Anyways, I made up for the lack of red in my outfit by adding some red to my patriotic nails. I'm especially loving the one gold nail with gold sparkles. Last holiday season my nails were this gold color for the entire month of December but since it's warmed up I haven't found a reason to pull out the gold polish again until now. Also I've recently added more crop tops to my collection. Last summer I bought a black short sleeved crop top to pair with a high waisted skirt I owned and really loved the way it accentuated my waist. I knew this summer I wanted to invest in a few more. I'm definitely not a fan of the full stomach hanging out but I think they can look cute with pencil skirts or something similar to this navy skirt in the photo. I got this lace top from Express on the clearance rack for $10 and paired it with a white bandeau top since it was sheer. Overall, this way the perfect fourth of July outfit because it was comfortable and stylish at the same time.

Whats the one color that your closet is lacking?

  4. It's no surprise to me but I lack black! If there is a pink or black item- I always choose pink! I need more neutrals to make my closet more dynamic. Love your outfit- especially the clutch!

  7. I realized as I was getting ready for a party on the Fourth of July that I didn't have any red either! Had to settle for bright red toes and a red hair tie! Lol
