Usually Billy and me go all out for the 4th of July; the past two years we hosted parties at our place with our closest friends, made summer-y refreshments, day drank, swam, and watched the fireworks that surround DTLA. This year we were both so busy we stayed home and had more of a relaxing holiday, just the two of us. We went to the rooftop pool, ordered delicious Impossible Burgers from Mohawk Bend, and observed the fireworks display from our terrace.
I’m always putting a lot of thought into what I’m going to wear, but between blogging, getting ready for our summer vacation, working out, and trying to find time for summertime fun—planning a red, white, and blue outfit was not high on my list of things to do.
Two days before the 4th I pulled some options out of my closet and narrowed it down to a few choices. Because I was pressed for time and didn’t want to spend an excessive amount of money on shipping. I went on Amazon Prime (thank you for two-day, free delivery) and I bought a pair of inexpensive red heart-shaped sunnies and a lacey bohemian kimono. I ended up wearing my new purchases with an understated white bodysuit, high-waisted denim shorts, white mules (here’s a similar version), and a strawberry-printed headband.
What I love about this effortless summer look is that it’s the quintessential California laid-back style, and it’s not limited to being worn only on the 4th. It was so simple to create, and the bodysuit and denim shorts can be worn repeatedly with various accessories for a whole new style.
