Today's Everyday Fashion: Patriotic Moments


In honor of Independence Day tomorrow, I decided to take a look back at some patriotic moments over the past two years. I love wearing red, white and blue, and no matter how you are celebrating, there are plenty of outfit ideas here to get you started (although, the bottom outfits were intended to be tongue-in-cheek!). I will likely start my day at the pool in my most patriotic swim suit pictured below, and end it watching fireworks in my new Gap blue and white Ikat tank (see it here) and some red shorts. Which look is your favorite, and what are you wearing on July 4th?







1. Urban Outfitters tank, $29
2. Forever 21 tank, $12.80
3. Ralph Lauren bikini, $120
4. Piperlime tank, $49
5. Arden B tunic, $17
6. Forever 21 shirt, $17.80
7. Urban Outfitters skirt, $9.99
8. Topshop flag shorts, $68
9. Old Navy skirt, $17.50

  3. My favorite is the top outfit: The navy ruffled tank with the striped skirt and red shoes. It's subtly patriotic and classy.

  5. It's so hard to pick, I really like all of these!  I love that they're all patriotic in their own way, but none of them are over the top, so you could wear them on any day of the summer!  I especially love the white shorts + striped top combo and the tie-dyed top!

  13. My favorite is number 3 the white shorts and striped shirt.  I am going to be outdoors tomorrow in the Florida heat so I think I will try and see what is in my closet to come close to your look.

  14. I love the red strapless with the white shorts, its a nice casual look that will be comfortable in the heat! Although the blue heels are a little over the top. I think I would pair it with your Guess wedges :)

    I totally agree. The blue heels were a bit of a joke. I would wear that look with flat shoes though. ;-)

  41. Love the sandals in the picture where you are wearing white jeans and the colorful tank. Where are they from?? Thanks!

  42. jseverydayfashionJuly 15, 2012 at 12:14 PM

    They are the Chinese Laundry Shanae. They are more than 3 years old though, so might be tough to find. I replaced them this summer with the Nine West Victory.

  43. Hello, the short red /orange skirt you're wearing with the nautical top, where is it from? Thank you, really drawn to this look, would love to replicate it on my own, thanks.

  44. Suzan, that skirt is from LOFT but it is probably long gone by now. Banana has an almost identical one online right now though!
