This year we are so lucky that Independence day is on a weekend, because last year it was Thursday, middle of the week. This time we can have more fun and extend the celebration to the whole weekend and surprise everyone by wearing a thematic outfit at work on Monday. =)
My friend celebrated at The Boston Esplanade, but I decided to have a BBQ with my bf, dad and sister. Here is an outfit for the Independence day, especially if you are having a BBQ like me.
Go for denim, as it is usually blue, which symbolises the blue color of the American flag. The other colors you need are red and white, so perfect the look with white sneakers and a red fringe tank.
The stars and stripes printed shorts are great to show off your pride. The print on the shorts is faded, so they don't look like a part of a costume and you can continue wearing them after the celebration is over.
Fringe tank is very playful and adds a bit of country music feel to the outfit. It will look even better if you add a gold tone hammered star pendant, that repeats the form of the star print on the shorts.
Take an elegant coin bag in Crema De Vie color with you. It is very small and will just fit your iPhone and/or sunglasses, but the laser cut looks adorable, so it is one of my must-haves this summer.
