 This seems to happen every year, but July is sneaking up on me again. I think more so now than in previous years, and I’m attributing that to having started a new job in May and summer temperatures not really hitting DC a few weeks ago. Anyway, the 4th is in about two weeks (side note: if only it could always fall on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday…anyone else think Monday is awkward?) and I’m sure all of us are planning on donning some red, white, and blue.

Given that it’s generally in the mid 90s this time of year, keeping things light and breezy is always a priority to me. Equally important is being able to re-wear whatever I buy again, ideally for at least a couple summers to come. So here are some of my favs–with way more in the widget below, because it was really hard to narrow them down–if you’re looking for chic ways to wear your RWB. I’ll probably be wearing this gingham shirt, white J.Crew shorts, and my Jacks (and may throw a flag bow into my hair, who knows) but am honestly not even sure what my plans look like next weekend. Oops!

Other things to note…This cotton tank, and this $10 star spangled spatula would make a great hostess gift if you’re headed to someone else’s place for the day/weekend. If you’re going with one of the gingham bottoms pictured, try this light tank from Everlane (ony $14)…for reference, I wear a medium and get a slightly looser fit. Also, I finally picked up this shirt (it’s only $23 today and has free shipping) with code SPRINKLES.

What are your plans for the Fourth? Any outfits picked out already?

    I am right there with you: I can’t believe it is already almost July! I am thinking of wearing a simple gingham tank that I found at Old Navy with some white jeans. Probably will end up wearing blue and white…but not much red.
