what to wear + fourth of july

I love the Fourth of July. My family used to spend every summer in Jackson Hole, so for like seven years I never celebrated the holiday at home in Connecticut. But, since I started working for the past three summers, we're finding our footing in Fourth of July festivities at home. 

Thank the Lord for our pool this summer. I intend to be as bronzed as humanly possible over the holiday weekend. 

In terms of what to wear, I've picked out my favorite looks for holiday. I'll most likely be in a bikini the whole weekend, but for those of you who are out and about, here are my top picks!

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine | ten | eleven | twelve | thirteen (top / bottom)

I like the orange Lilly dress because it's a little more fitted and the neckline is really flattering. It's also comes in navy, but I prefer the orange because I'm actually quite a fan of the color. I haven't seen the white J. Crew maxi in person, but it's so flowy and summery that it's perfect for this holiday. Plus it has embroidery, so I obviously like it. 

THE GRAPEFRUIT TOTE. WHAT. I haven't seen it before which is a shame because it's so darn cute. 

I just got the white J. Crew top (on sale!) and actually brought it with me on my trip to the city. It's very lightweight, so it can be paired with shorts if it's hot out, but with jeans and a cardigan if it's cooler. My absolute favorite top in this post is the striped bustier top, like goodness gracious it's perfect. I'm waiting for it to go on sale, and when it does I am snatching it up. 

There is no holding back in terms of swimwear for this holiday. I happen to have an American flag bikini and a star one-piece (it's lucky I don't get embarrassed easily). If you're not into the obnoxious American pride, opt for a white bikini! My favorite is from Monday Swimwear

I just noticed that both the shoes included in this post are cork. I have the cork Lilly McKims and they're my favorite pair of casual sandals. I love the regular leather McKims, but unfortunately they stretch out if you wear them too much (which I do), but the cork sandals don't. I am loving the cork heels, I saw them on Tuckernuck and fell head over heels (ha ha). 

I can't pinpoint why, but I really, really like the navy tie-waist J. Crew romper. It comes in two colors, navy and this bright orange-y red, and is extremely versatile considering the amount of accessories that can be paired with it. 

Don't really know what I'm doing for the Fourth yet. My friend is having a party, so I'll probably go to that, and I don't think my family is doing anything special because my brother is away all summer. Lots of grilling and tanning though!
