July 4th is right around the corner, next Friday in fact! I thought I'd share my version of a July 4th summer outfit to give you all a bit of inspiration before going out to find that perfect outdoor BBQ outfit.
Denim shirts have always been a staple in my closet and this Gap western denim shirt (which I wear at least once a week) is my favorite denim shirt purchase. This is a real denim fabric making it a bit thicker so for outdoor activities I would suggest a chambray shirt which is much lighter, to get this look. Khaki colored shorts are such a classic piece of a summer wardrobe and has a great contrast with the denim. Khaki chino shorts (and other colors) are on sale a the J.Crew Factory for only $20, now that's a steal! I instantly gave the look some edge with these MIA gladiator sandals. I was on the prowl for the perfect gladiator sandals and I stumbled across these bad boys and couldn't resist. These MIA gladiator sandals are available at Macy's and they're on sale! Don't you just love these summer sales?
This weekend I'll be preparing for swim week in July. It's my last free month before grad school starts back up and I'm determined to take full advantage. So get ready for loads of content! I've also been pinning a lot more than usual on Pinterest for summer style and travel (they've been my favorites this month). I'm sure you all will be shopping all the wonderful sales so here are a few you may want to check out.
