Thank God it’s Friday, and another long holiday weekend! Hallelujah! The 4th of July is definitely one of my favorite times of the year! There is just an energy buzzing in the air everywhere you go, that celebratory summer feeling! The celebrations are always such an incredible time, sunshine, grillin and chillin, and of course fireworks! As we celebrate our great nation why not celebrate summer style at the same time?! I have created a cute and casual look that is perfect for this year's 4th of July festivities! I started out with an adorable pair of cropped jeans with a bit of a flare and an unfinished hem! These are an ideal pair of jeans for summertime because they won’t get too hot! I decided to pair them with a white off the shoulder crop top! I mentioned the off the shoulder trend in a previous post and I think that the 4th of July is an amazing time to rock this trend! This style from H&M is lightweight, versatile and is the perfect white piece for your patriotic ensemble! Next I accessorized these simple pieces in order to create something special! First is a navy and white printed little neck scarf that I picked up at Forever 21 for about $7.00! This is another super chic trend that we are seeing on celebs everyday! It’s crazy how the smallest details can make the biggest impact. In my opinion, this scarf really completes this outfit and gives it a fun, stylish flare. To add some sparkle and shine to the look, I got inspiration from fireworks and slipped into the gold, sparkly espadrille sandals! Before you head out make sure to fill a cute tote with all of you summer party essentials and definitely don’t forget a classic pair of sunnies! Finally add a pop of red with a bright a bold lipstick, and if you can get your hands on a red pickup truck you will be riding in classic American style!  Have fun and be safe this weekend!
