Here’s to the All-American Girls (dolls not included) out there ready to celebrate the 4th of July and our country’s pride. It’s the most patriotic time of the year, and it’s time to bust out to your 4th of July events proudly in our country’s colors. I’m slightly partial to the 4th of July. It’s the perfect summer celebration, and I’m a sucker for an awesome fireworks show. With so many festivities from parades, to picnics, to block parties, you’re going to need a look as exciting as the event you’re attending. Here’s some outfits built for the All-American Girls of today without having to sport a giant flag
“Happy 4th of July 2012″ on the front!
I love this adorable gingham sleeves tie top, perfect for a hot summer 4th of July. Throw on some denim shorts for the ultimate All-American look and you’re set for any patriotic occasion. I would pair this look with some simple yet causal sandals and jewelry. Pull off a side
Katniss braid to complete the look.
Total Cost = $29.99
Dress + Cowboy Boots
Total Cost = $89.94
Lastly, pull out that All-American denim shirt and some white jeans for an easy 4th of July outfit. Add some red shoes to top it off or pair this look with some neutral wedges, gold accessories, and some bright red lips.
Total Cost = $74.98
So as you watch the fireworks burst in the air while likely sweating a storm this week, remember to celebrate America in style this 4th of July.
