The Fourth of July has always been one of my absolute favorite holidays. Celebrating the peak of summer with some great food, good company, and fireworks! The holiday always brings back great memories from when I was a kid. Running around in the grass and jumping in the pool with cousins, enjoying buttery corn on the cob and sweet watermelon triangles, the smell of burgers on the grill, roasting marshmallows over a bonfire and swirling around in the dark with sparklers in hand! Oh and mosquitoes. Because of course no summer outdoor event is complete without those little buggers.
Dressing for a Fourth of July get together is usually pretty simple. A flowy and lightweight dress or a simple tee and shorts usually does the trick for me. And because I know how easy it can be to get stumped on what to wear, I’ve rounded up nine affordable and fashionable pieces to give you some patriotic outfit inspiration. All you need is something that will keep you cool and comfortable in the warm weather and of course contains either red, white or blue. I don’t make the rules people, just the way it is 😉
This year, we’ll be grilling out at my uncle’s house and hopefully getting turned up and lighting up some sparklers once it gets dark haha! One of my family’s favorite activities to do together during the summer is play a few games of volleyball. Even though some of us get pretty competitive, it’s always a blast so I’m looking forward to that again this year. Overall, just looking forward to a pretty simple and laidback holiday.
What do you guys have planned for the fourth this year?
