The Fashion Magpie Fourth of July

Happy Fourth.

I hope that your day involves lots of watermelon, Tim McGraw, rose, and ice cream sandwiches, and that you’re wearing something festive.  I’m wearing either a Caroline Constas blouse I bought a couple months back (on super sale now! — you can’t really see it in the picture, but it looks more red, white, and blue up close!) with white skinnies OR this Saloni dress, which is described as “hot pink” but looks more like nantucket red IRL.  (Similar in ethos to this well-priced white linen style I’ve been eyeing.)  I’ve packed both for the occasion and it will be a gametime decision.  Either of those, or you’ll find me wearing my swimsuit, possibly underneath my white joveralls.

My only regret is that I didn’t come across these until just today.  How adorable would they be with an LWD for the occasion?  Not too on-the-nose patriotic, but just enough to let the world know you can get down with a theme.

If you find yourself escaping for some quiet time inside after a morning melting at the pool or beach, well — it’s a good day to shop online because there are some ridiculous deals to be had.  Here are my top picks:

HEAVILY DISCOUNTED GUL HURGEL (are you a Gul gal too?!)

MUST-HAVE EBERJEY ROMPER (I am obsessed with mine!)

CLASSIC NAVY POLO SHIRT (or one for your husband/boyfriend — extra 30% off!)

PARTY-READY AQUAZZURAS

NEW PAIR OF BOAT SHOES FOR MR. MAGPIE (he goes a pair a year)

CLASSIC RED LINEN SHIRTDRESS

SWEET LITTLE ASYMMETRICAL NUMBER (UNDER $40!)

A STATEMENT BLOUSE

COMFY STRIPED JAMS

A CHIPPENDALE CHAIR!

And for minis…

A NEW PAIR OF HANNA JAMS (25% OFF!)

A SWEET FLORAL DRESS

THE MOST OUTRAGEOUSLY ADORABLE KNIT SWEATER

OLIVIER BABY TWO-PIECE SETS

POPPYBOWS ON SALE IN BRIGHT HAPPY CHEERY SUMMER COLORS

P.S. Still appreciating some wise words from Colin Powell.

P.P.S.  A recipe for a rainy day.

P.P.P.S.  A good price on a hyacinth basket, and I think mini would die and go to heaven if I presented her with this.

  1. Happy 4th! Love your outfits … I am currently in a tiered white blouse under a pair of short joveralls (with red Salt Waters!) and will change into a red Swiss dot mini skirt and some sort of white top for dinner + fireworks tonight.

    So funny that Mr. Magpie goes through a pair of boat shoes every year! My dad is the same with LL Bean Blucher mocs, though I think it’s more like every 3 years or so, since he only wears them on the weekend. My boyfriend has a pair of boat shoes from Yuketen that have lasted like 6 or 7 years! (similar to these: https://www.yuketen.com/boat-shoe-16ss/) — a great option if you’re looking for something ultra well-made.

    1. Ooo, those Yuketens would be a great snag for a future gift! Thanks for the tip! Your outfits sound ADORABLE. xo
