What to wear on the fourth of July?

What is your style when it comes to Independence Day? Casual or dressy? Retro or classic? Patriotic or nonchalant? I will admit that I use to dress up for the fourth of July when I was a kid but I haven't really lately. . However is this year I am digging the Americana themed pieces!

I also love the cut offs with the American flag painted on them... so cute and I would totally make them if I wasn't so busy moving! I've seen them at stores as well, but it seems like a really fun project. Maybe that is because back in the day we would decorate homecoming pants

If I could shop polyvore for the 4th this year, I would end up wearing something like this to the lake:

Will you be patriotic when you get dressed on the 4th of July?

Oh my gosh those cut offs are adorable! I bought a red, white and blue tank top that's pretty cute and not too over the top so I can wear it other times of the year as well. I love getting dressed up for holiday themes!

I love the patriotic outfits! However, I have seen some of those bathing suits look not so classy. It's probably all about who is wearing it though. haha I would totally rock one!

Love the set you created on Polyvore. I would totally wear something like that for the 4th if I were in Florida or Arizona again. But it's going to be a bit windy in the Bay so I'll probably switch out the shorts for jeans and the sandals for flats.

Great nautical jewelry!

Alexandra said...

i'm absolutely in love with american flag cutoffs -- i'm in the process of making my own pair!
i'm so excited for the 4th -- i'm not sure of what my plans are, i might be heading towards minneapolis to hang around in dinkytown and watch the amazing fireworks show. who knows!


Chrissi said...

i usually just wear patriotic colors, but i may spruce it up a bit this year :)

April said...

I am just hoping we get some flippin' SUNSHINE for the 4th this year. For goodness sake, can someone PLEASE tell the weather gods that it is JULY here in Oregon!!
I usually just try to wear red, white, and blue - probably jeans this year with a tank and hoodie. Yep, super patriotic. I know.
LOL ... have a great holiday, girly!!

Mikelle Jade {The Honeypie Archives} said...

Great ideas. I don't usually dress up for the 4th, and this year I actually thought about getting something but had no luck finding anything festive and pregnancy friendly. Maybe next year? I'll definitely wear red white or blue on the day... I sure like your ideas! that bikini top is too cute!

Faith said...

I so want to wear that outfit!! I think I'll dress patriotic this year.

I didn't realize when it became a thing to dress in stars and stripes on the fourth! But I have to say I love Katy Perry for overdoing it. I think overdoing it is just her style!
