Winning Combinations {Stars and…Polka dots!}

28 Jun
Light up the sky like the fourth of july

Soo.. I did another fourth of July collage. What can I say, I like red, white, and blue! Similar theme here than with the last one, one outfit for during the day at a picnic and one for the evening fireworks! The squares in the middle represent things you can use for BOTH outfits! And let’s be honest… who wouldn’t want to wear those shoes? SO adorably cute, right?

As for the “picnic” outfit, some people may say you can’t mix stripes and polka dots but it can work. First of all, the bag is an accessory, not something you’d have on your arm all day. Also, the polka dots are smaller so when you do have the bag on (and possibly the cardigan to break it up), the dots and stripes won’t be competing!  For the evening “fireworks” outfit, wanted to do something a bit more casual since, for me, this means walking around at night in Albany, debating which food truck to eat yummies from and having fun celebrating our country! And of course, cuddling up on a blanket to watch fireworks! This is also where I threw in a bit of FUN with the “stars and stripes” bracelet! Also the “star” earrings were not there unintentionally – obviously a nod to the “stars and stripes”! What are YOUR plans for the fourth of July? Beaching it? Picnic? Anyone have a boat I can hang out on? Ha!

Winning Combinations … {Fourth of July!}

27 Jun
Fourth of July

I totally forgot the fourth of July was like.. next week! Completely escaped my mind and I am so not prepared. I put together two cute, patriotic outfits, using red, white, and blue OF COURSE! The first one is more of a day time look for a picnic while the second is great for sitting on the grass watching the fireworks. Or in my case, most likely walking around Albany with thousands of people and yummy food trucks while watching the fireworks! I loooove the fourth of July, not only because it’s a day we should ALL be proud of but because it’s always a blast (no, that was not a pun for fireworks… maybe!)   It’s always such a celebration and let’s be honest, there’s usually a yummy BBQ too! What are your fourth of July plans? Any patriotic outfits planned?
