With the 4th of July just around the corner, I’ve been on the look out for cute outfits for the occasion. There’s tons of cheesy American flag print tees and tanks out right now, but I love this dress because it’s such a classy option for the patriotic holiday. This seersucker star print dress is from a preppy + southern clothing line I recently came across called Lauren James – I know all my Kentucky girls will love their things! This is also where I found the cute gingham bikini I posted about a few times. I love the tulip skirt with mini pleats (and pockets!) and how lightweight the fabric is. Pair it with a cardigan and these summery Lauren Conrad heels, red lips, and pearl earrings to complete this southern + patriotic look (I’m wearing size XS). It also comes in an adorable scalloped hem skirt option!
My family’s biggest party of the year is over 4th of July weekend. My mom’s entire side of the family drives in to town for a backyard barbecue pool party with corn hole, volleyball, kickball, country music, etc. My mom is the oldest of 7 kids, so when her side of the family comes in to town it’s a big party – over 40 people! Below are some other cute patriotic options for the holiday:
