Good Morning Everyone!
Now that I’m doing two posts a week (for the time being), I feel like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve talked to you all! I hope you had a great weekend! We managed to brave the 90 degree temps (don’t laugh if you’re from the South – lol) and went to the Stone Arch Bridge Festival. It was so hot, and I definitely crashed when we got home!
Since Summer is moving at the speed of light, I’m sharing some 4th of July outfit inspiration today. But, seriously, where is Summer going?! This year will be the first time we won’t be home for the 4th. My parents are heading on a European river cruise for a few weeks so we’re staying in the Cities for the holiday. It’ll be weird not to do our usual thing, but we’re excited to explore the festivities in another city!
Both of these outfits contain key pieces under $30 and can easily be reused for future holidays (think Memorial day + future 4th of Julys too!). I’m also sharing some other 4th of July outfit ideas below that would be perfect if you’re looking for something a little different! A lot of those outfits can easily be repurposed for use throughout the summer!
If you’re spending the holiday at the lake, beach or pool:
This $30 swimsuit from Target is absolutely perfect for the 4th! It’s a classic design so you can reuse it for years to come. Plus, it looks super cute with shorts so can easily double as a bodysuit if you don’t actually plan on swimming for the holiday! I went with a size S, which is my typical one piece size and felt that it fit, but I could definitely have gone up one to have a bit more coverage overall. If you’re worried about one piece sizing, I would suggest going with what you typically get for bottoms to start (I’m usually a S bikini bottom and a M bikini top).
PS Target is having a BOGO 50% off sale for swimwear right now! If you’re needing a suit, now is the time to stock up! They’re already a great price and now they’re even cheaper.
For a casual day out:
There is a 100% chance you will see me rocking this exact outfit (or something very close to it) on the 4th! This $13 tank, also from Target, is another top that can easily be worn for future holidays! I love how it looks tucked into these $42 shorts from Nordstrom (size up one!). It also would look good knotted with a denim skirt or worn with jeans! I went with my typical XS, and it’s definitely an oversized fit. I like the fit, but if you want something tighter, I suggest sizing down.
I’m sharing some other outfit inspiration below separated into Swimsuits, Clothing & Accessories!
I hope this gets your creative juices flowing to come up with your own 4th of July outfit!
