A patriotic pair....

Posted by Christina // 8 Replies

I admitted yesterday that the Fourth of July is not my favorite holiday.

There is one part of Independence celebrations that I love…besides the beer….is getting dressed up in the red, white, and blue.

Tim and I went “window-shopping” where the windows were just new tabs on the screen I stared at for way too long, and these were our creations.  Tim thinks his is a little too risque for the blog, but I say let’s just be real.  We like slightly naughty jokes, remember. our fourth outfit

I like to keep things simple with a quirky tee and white pants destined for BBQ sauce tradgedies.  The aviators are a no-brainer….classic American thanks to Tom Cruise.  While I don’t own Toms, I think they would just be the cutest for summer boating (when I pretend that boating is something I do).  Add some pretty red nails and a koozie with the good stuff and I am sure to have a good time.

I am so happy that Tim has not jumped on the flat-bill bandwagon, he still prefers the classy golf hat and of course the only choice is a Cardinals hat.  This shirt is a little mature, but I feel like we could pass it off to kiddos as a real warning…especially since everyone knows how terrified I am of popping-fire-boom-noise-in-your-face.  Tim loves the plain shorts, so yea that is that and then some sweet white Converse kicks aching for some grass stains.

Are you keeping it casual for the Fourth or sporting that sweet summer dress?
Do you love shirts that make people giggle?
What are your Fourth of July plans?

    Oh my gosh, girl. I can’t even begin to consider wearing white pants. First, I’d have to buy white underwear. Secondly, I would never be able to sit or touch anything. haha! It’s basically a disaster waiting to happen. Why hasn’t someone made it a “thing” to let your polka dot underwear show through light color pants? Classy, right?!?

    So question. Are you guys actually this stylish or just would love to be? I could totally see you guys rocking these pieces!

      Oh actually, I learned a trick! You don’t want to wear white undies because they shine right through…you want to buy nude colored or tan or beige or flesh toned hahaha. Then they just blend! But I feel like if you rocked some red polkas it would be in keeping with the theme 🙂

      Hahaha….we are not stylish….our “style” is classified as easy and comfortable. If we had bought the pieces early enough this is totally something we would wear. Tim will probably be in that exact outfit but barefoot and with tongs in his hands and I will be rocking flip flops with my white jeans and a less fun but still red white and blue shirt 🙂 That makes me laugh because I always think we are so plain jane and I thought people would laugh at this post!

        Perhaps we can call your style “snarky festive comfortable”? Seems a little long. We’ll have to work on that.

        Also, I’m pasty white… I’m pretty sure white underwear is close to my skin tone. hahaha. BUT if ever I venture into the land of white shorts/pants, now I know to purchase a nude colored pair of underwear. Look at that… learn somethin everyday!

    I have to tell you…. Scarlet threw off her flip flops and stepped on a smoke bomb before I could run to her to stop her…. I hope she’s not scared for life like you! You were the first person I thought of lol.
