Red, White And Blue, For You

A red, white and blue, 4th of July inspired outfit

Happy 4th of July everyone! I know that I’m British and we don’t celebrate Independence here in the UK, but I know that I have just as many US readers as I do English ones, so I like to dress up! Any excuse I know! Since the UK flag is also red, white and blue, in pretty much identical shades, it can still be considered patriotic of me anyway, so it’s all good! Last year I wore this look for the 4th of July, but as it’s been crazy hot lately, something like that wasn’t doable and much less clothing was needed!

So, what was I wearing? I wore my Levi’s 501 cobalt blue denim shorts with an ASOS cami blouse in white. I chose my Sam Edelman Petty booties to give it a more relaxed/festival vibe and then topped it off with a Fedora from H&M. To add the splash of red I went with my Push Lock bag from Cambridge Satchel and then chose a denim blue watch, a gold cross necklace and some random pearl bracelets. Since last year I went quite smart and sophisticated, I thought this year it would be a nice juxtaposition to choose something casual and easy. Of course it helped with this location right near my house. So beautiful! What do you think of the look? Have you had a nice 4th of July?

    This is one of my favourite combination of colors, red, cobalt blue and white! The colors suit you very well, also like your makeup, it’s perfect for the summer! 🙂

    It’s a lovely outfit both for the occasion and also for the unusually American style weather that we’re having here in the UK at the moment. You look so very relaxed and pretty in it. Those shorts are a fabulous shade of blue. (I also clicked through your link to last year and I really like that combination too – especially those gorgeous red jeans. 🙂

    I love the location too. How nice to live so close to an old fashioned wild flower meadow. 🙂 There are so few of them about now, alas. 🙁

    I’m very fond of the USA myself. I’ve visited the country 6 times (3 during my childhood/teenage years with my family and another 3 as an adult travelling alone and staying with friends there). I think it’s great that you’ve marked their national day like this. 🙂

    I’m also very fond of France, another red, white and blue country, where my parents lived for 12 years. Are you doing anything on 14th for their national day? 😉

      Ha ha no, I didn’t even know France had a national day on the 14th!

      Really glad you like the outfit and the location. Living in the countryside means I have lots of fields like this around, they are everywhere, so I always appreciate the beauty of them so much 🙂

        I grew up in the countryside myself but none of the fields were quite so pretty. 🙂 Most of the fields on our own farm were just grass or just wheat. Lol

    We recognize our neighbours to the south here on July 4 as well because there are soooo many Americans in Canada and obviously keep a good relationship with the United States. Love the outfit, how you kept it really casual and relaxed. Also, you should wear hats more often, that one really suits you!
