What to Wear for the Fourth of July.

Just because we’ll be socially-distanced doesn’t mean we won’t get decked out for the Fourth! I may not be quite as formal as the lovely lady above (ha! I wish!), but I will certainly be showing my patriotic stripes.

Below, my favorite finds for myself and my children…

DROOLING OVER THIS G LABEL PUFF-SLEEVED DRESS

THIS GORGEOUS GUL HURGEL, MARKED DOWN TO A RIDICULOUSLY LOW PRICE

MOST LIKELY WILL WEAR A WHITE DRESS LIKE THIS, THIS, OR THIS WITH RED ACCESSORIES LIKE THESE EARRINGS OR THESE SANDALS

ALSO LOVE A FROTHY WHITE TOP LIKE THIS WITH WHITE SKINNIES FOR A MORE CASUAL VIBE

THIS GINGHAM SKIRT (SUPER STEAL) WOULD LOOK ADORABLE WITH A WHITE BODYSUIT OR PLAIN WHITE TEE

THIS LA COQUETA IS PERFECTION

I RARELY DO MATCHING FOR MY CHILDREN, BUT I WENT WHOLE HOG THIS YEAR — HILL HAS THIS AND MINI HAS THIS

I AM ABSOLUTELY DYING OVER THIS SUNSUIT — MIGHT HAVE TO GET IT, TOO

NAVY BLUE OR WHITE LACOSTE POLOS — I LOVE THEM WITH CPC SHORTS

MINI OWNS THIS PERFECT DRESS BUT I THINK SHE NEEDS THIS FROM THE SAME BRAND, TOO…AND HILL THIS!

AMERICAN FLAG SWEATERS (MONOGRAMMABLE!) IF GOING SOMEWHERE CHILLY

CIENTA SHOES!

THIS GINGHAM DRESS IS TOO GOOD (AND 40% OFF WITH CODE SPRING40)

THESE JAMMIES REMIND ME OF FIREWORKS AND THESE ARE 40% OFF WITH CODE SPRING40

A TOTAL CLASSIC

P.S. More children’s finds for warm weather here and traditional childrenswear for under $31 here.

P.P.S. Some of my most-commented-on posts in the last two weeks (please chime in!): the slimmest of griefs and my most recent book review. In the latter, one Magpie had some really stirring (politely dissenting) words about the way I’d reviewed one of the books, and I have been thinking on this a lot since. On the one hand, I agree that I was irritatingly haughty toward and dismissive of the book. Badly done, Emma. On the other: I take honest book reviews very seriously, and I absolutely love openly critiquing books I’ve read with my friends (which includes you, my readers). Moreover, I believe all books are art and that any reaction to art is legitimate. But I could do better to make space for contrasting perspectives, and I will endeavor to do so. Last thought: a quote: “No two people ever read the same book.”

P.PP.S. My other heartbeat.

  1. Love, love, love that Juliet Dunn dress! So perfect. I really like your idea about wearing white & accessorizing with red — will have to try that with a white Xirena dress I bought back in December on super sale but haven’t worn yet! <3

  2. So sorry to hear that response from a reader regarding your own “personal” review of the book was critiqued for you. I had a similar response on one of my reviews on Goodreads. (Which is very much your OWN opinion of the book). Some reader took very strongly to my opinion and responded in no uncertain terms! Seriously!! I actually thought that people who read know/understand that different responses are evoked by all. I am still confused, miffed and troubled to the response to me and to you. (Does misery love company?).
    Just to remind you that I personally thought your review was just that…YOUR REVIEW! However, your response to this reader was so eloquent. Well said my dear!
    Sometimes it’s fun to remind others (internally of course), that we do live in America. Where we have choices!!!!!!
