Retro Red, White, & Blue + What to Wear For any Event on the 4th of July

 The city I live in happens to be home to one of the most famous Navy ships of World War II, the USS Lexington. I have visited the ship many times over the years since it's arrival in Corpus Christi (I even preformed in a play there once with my middle school drama club, but that's neither here nor there.) It was such a big part of my youth, that one of the very first things that comes to my mind when I think of our country's freedom and Independence day is this historic aircraft carrier.
So, I wanted to do something fun for the blog that reflected my love for 1940's Americana style. Although I was seriously tempted to dress up like Rosie the Riveter (what girl secretly doesn't want to do that at least once right?) I decided to take a more modernized approach to the classic style of the 40's.  
 This amazing top and these adorable pants are both by BCBG.
My shoes are from Forever 21.
 
My sunglasses are by Ray Ban.
 Thanks for stopping by again today...See you tomorrow. xo -Brit
 
 
 For many of us Independence day means time spent with friends, family, food, and fireworks; and if you're feeling festive this year, (like I obviously am) then you will need a fabulously hued red, white, and blue outfit that fits any summer celebration. I've put together a few outfit ideas below that are sure to be a hit at whatever event you grace with your presence this July 4th.
