Hey Ya’ll!! I hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend.  My dad loved the hat I bought him.  I ended up getting him this one.  He really liked it and even wore it around for a bit.

With this holiday over, it’s time to look forward to the next summer holiday, 4th of July!!  Can you believe it is only two weeks away?!?!  We are heading to a friend’s house to pop some fireworks on the 3rd.  It’s always a fun party, and real casual laid back style.  Also, lots of outside time for fireworks.

For my 4th of July outfit, I’m planning on going comfy, casual, and a hint of festive.   I also need something for hot weather.  I bought these shorts last year.  I found them on sale because they have flag pockets, and I bought them after the 4th.  I linked them so you could see the full description.  You can still find them on various resale sites if you really like them, just google search them.  Since my shorts have a little festive vibe to them, I will probably pair them with a red top.  I love wearing red and navy on the 4th.  I think it is a great way to add a little festive color without being to obvious about it.  If you are all about the patriotic tanks, I found this really cute one that would look cute with some distressed shorts.

The top in this post is not available online, but I did find a similar one and a really cute off the shoulder version.  One of my favorite things about cold shoulder tops is they often have the look of off the shoulder, but the straps help hold them on so no band around your arm.  This also makes them looser and breath a little better on hot days.  I love the embroidered lace details on this one.  It covers you up just a little bit more, and provides something eye-catching to the solid color top.

This outfit is going to fit my hot weather and casual check list perfectly.  If you are looking for something a little dressier for the 4th, check back on Wednesday because  I have a really cute navy outfit coming up!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

    Hi there. I found your blog via Thread for Thomas link-up. Love this casual outfit and particularly the color of your top. It’s so vibrant and yet easy going. I am loving the off the shoulder look this year but this style in my preference as you can still wear a regular bra. Great 4th of July, and everyday outfit. Glad I stopped by.

    Super cute top! I am laughing only because when I post something like this and call it casual my friends give me so much crap that I think wearing heels is still casual. ha! Legs just look so pretty with heels right?
