Red, White and Blue

So with 4th of July being on a Saturday this year, I obviously have a wedding at work and I will be working probably 18 hours (no joke!). Not really my idea of a "holiday" but oh well. I'm sad I can't spend one of my favorite holidays with J, my friends and family, but I'm sure there will be other years. 

Anyways, I do love 4th of July and always look forward to planning my red, white and blue outfit. This 4th I'll be wearing my super comfy black dress that I basically wear every weekend, with my favorite black sandals. Not very festive, but very work and wedding appropriate. 

But IF I was spending the day with everyone I love, this is totally what I would wear:
Since I would plan to spend most of that day at the pool, I would wear this adorable navy and white print bikini. I would pair it with this tote from LL Bean:


Obviously perfect for a day at the pool!

Later, to grab dinner and watch fireworks, I would wear this lovely navy dress from J.Crew:
To accessorize, I would add these Blu Bijoux enamel bracelets from Max and Chloe, one in red and one in white: 

With the super summery Kate Spade oversized clutch...

Sigh. Unfortunately, I won't be wearing any of these things, but it's always fun to dream! Hope everyone enjoys their holiday and has fun planning out their patriotic outfits!!

Oh, I'm sorry you have to work. If it makes you feel any better I'll be working all day Friday when everyone is off and a little here and there over the weekend. It really bums me out!

The 4th of July ensemble you would have worn is so cute. I love the dress and those bracelets.

I'm in the same boat as Jules! Working tomm while my husband and parents are off! Banks don't close if the holiday falls on Saturday! But never fear I have a totally cute (work appropriate)outfit planned for tomm! Blue v-neck shirt with red tank underneath, khakis and these red white and blue plaid wedges!

Adorable picks if I do say so myself (I own the bags and the crew dress!) Bummer about having to work, but how fun a July 4 wedding would be!
