Hey there, friends! In a little over a week, we will be celebrating our country’s independence and, as much as it’s one of my favorite holiday’s, I always stress a little bit about what to wear a little more on this holiday than most. I always feel like what I have as options aren’t quite what I was wanting to wear or isn’t quite appropriate for what my plans are. One year, I had a few really cute blue tops but my big plan was to go to the beach that day with friends, but didn’t have a blue, white OR red bathing suit. Isn’t that how it always goes? Ha! 

Has anyone else been in similar situation? If so, I thought I’d put together a post with a variety of options at different price points. I hope this helps you feel a little more prepared … and cute!


UNDER $100

UNDER $200

I wore the blue drop-waist dress in this posts’ featured photo the other night when we took a boat over to St. John. I think it’d be an amazing option for certain 4th of July plans. It runs a tiny bit big. I may or may not be pushing it wearing an XS. It’s right on the cusp of being too big, so I’d say go one size down from normal.  

One brand in particular that is nailing the 4th of July style is BBDakota and Solid & Striped has the cutest Americana-inspired swim! If you’re looking to stay under $50, I’d recommend NastyGal or H&M. There were a lot of cute options there!

What is everyone doing for the 4th? I’ll be going to Atlanta and would love any and all suggestions on what my girlfriends and I should do in the city! We’ll be there for a few days and want to make the most of it 🙂 

The photos used in today’s post are from outfit posts in years past that I’ve shared for 4th of July outfit inspiration. I am linking them all here but, please be aware that it’s likely the products you’re wanting from them are not available. You never know, though, so don’t lose hope just yet! Here are the links:

Casual Stripes and Distressed Denim

Have a great rest of your day, y’all! Thanks for stopping by! xo.
