Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans! I wore this outfit a few days ago, but it does have patriotic vibes—perfect for the 4th of July—don't you think? If it wasn't a million degrees outside, I would have totally worn it again today! Instead, you can find me in linen and a pair of short shorts...perhaps taking a dip in the pool. ;)

I'm not one to miss an opportunity for a good themed outfit as evidenced here. ;) Red, white, and blue: check. Stripes: check. Gold (which reminds me of stars): check. I originally was going to wear my red and navy striped tee, but it was way too warm for that (and even borderline too warm for this light lace-up top!). Maybe someday I'll spend the holiday somewhere where the temp is likely to be cooler than 100°F and get a chance to wear cute themed outfits that don't involve as few articles of clothing as possible!

Hope you're having a great (and safe) holiday (or a wonderful Tuesday elsewhere in the world!). :)
