Guest Post: 4th of July Style

Hi pretty readers of Meghan's blog! I am so excited that she asked me to guest post while she is relaxing on her honeymoon! And can I just say how happy I am for her?! Meghan and I were real-life friends a few years ago when I was attending UNC Chapel Hill but then college and life got busy and sadly we lost touch. Buuut the awesome blog world reconnected us and I am SO thankful it did! [Side note: Meghan was the first person I went to dinner with after my first date with my now husband, and I told her that I thought he was the real deal and turns out, he was!]

4th of July for me is always spent at the beach. It is usually low-key, consisting of hamburgers, beer, fireworks, and family. Whether you are staying in or going to a huge get-together, 4th of July is a great excuse to put together a patriotic Red, White, and Blue outfit. And a great excuse to purchase something new if you are like me and don't have much red in your closet ;)

The first outfit I put together is what I will most likely be wearing this 4th of July. I have a serious addiction to maxi dresses. They are comfortable, slimming, and timeless. This outfit would be perfect for a backyard cookout or a night at the beach. Gold accessories make any solid colored dress "pop". And those Tory Burch shoes... I die. This nail polish is my very fav... OPI's "Dating a Royal". It would be the perfect "blue" to add to your patriotic outfit!

The second outfit would be great for a slightly dressier 4th of July celebration... maybe one indoors. This peplum dress is adorable and would look GREAT with a navy blue necklace. Necklaces are my favorite! And these are super in style right now. I put wedges with this dress but you could always dress it down with flats and still look adorable! Also, am I the only one that has noticed how popular white mani's are right now? I have yet to try it but I love the look and I think it would look super cute with this outfit!
