Red, White and Blue

The 4th of July is the only holiday when I feel compelled to follow the crowd, and wear red,white and blue.   

How about an American made shirt, from that stalwart of good ol’ US fashion, LL Bean?

French Sailor’s Shirt in Red/Cream ($29.50)

Paired with a pair of navy bermuda shorts from J.Crew

Summerweight Chino Short in Navy ($29.50)

Finish off the look with a pair of classic Tretorns (to protect your feet from errant firecrackers)

Tretorn Nylite Canvas in White and Navy Peacoat from Piperlime $39.99

Add some sparklers and you’re good to go.

For those who celebrate a bit more refined holiday, I love this dress from Kate Spade

Kate Spade Ikat Caroline Dress $228

If you aren’t fortunate enough to sport red hair like the model above, you can pair the dress with red shoes, to maintain the patriotic spirit of the holiday.  This dress would look darling with either a simple, casual flat…

Tory Burch Abitha Patent Leather Sandal from Nordstrom $85

…or a heel…

Tom’s Canvas Wedge from Nordstrom $68.95

The perfect outfit in which to enjoy a huge fireworks display while sitting comfortably in your Adirondack chair.

    I didn’t know Tom’s made wedges! That’s a nice looking shoe.
