Hello and Happy Monday! I am working today so no long weekend for me but I do plan to engage in some fun after work and tomorrow. So of course many of us plan to attend picnics, cookouts and engage in firework activities (btw please be safe). So therefore, we must have a fashion and fireworks post right? It wouldn’t be appropriate blogger etiquette not to!
This post also includes some looks from two of my blogger friends, so be sure to follow them on IG as well @rickiloves and @the_cost_conscious_fashionista who I am sharing this first collab with!! Awesome right! So the obvious answer to the holiday fashion is some combination of red, white and blue, but clearly you don’t have to wear all three colors. You don’t have to wear any but let’s be festive and fun. Whether it is a scarf, bag, shoes or your nail polish you can still participate.
If you have been a faithful follower, you know that I love thrifting. I enjoy putting looks together that do not break the bank or my budget. My looks are affordable and probably something that you already have in your closet or if not a trip to the local Goodwill can certainly help you in that department.
This look includes a men’s casual blue and white striped button down. I landed this find for $3.59 at my local Goodwill. Paired with my thrifted blue Michael Antonio heels $3.49, thrifted red clutch $1.99 and thrifted blue tank $1.29. The scarf is from Dollar General $2. The only retail item are the super high-rise jegging from https://www.ae.com/
Same scarf, Merona button front, off the shoulder from http://target.com Another pair of my fav American Eagle jeans and Steve Madden Stecy heels in red, I scored from Macy’s during their annual shoe sale for $25.
@the_cost_conscious_fashionista My NC blogger friend opted for the supreme trio colors of red, white, and blue also! The off the shoulder trend is so flattering and this look is amazing! She more of her looks at https://thecostconsciousfashionista.com/
@rickiloves Is slaying is this white dress in Texas!!! She opted to adorn her handbag with the American flag colors in a scarf. Perfect for the added subtle but patriotic look. See more of her fashion and beauty tips at https://rickiloves.com/
I had so much fun doing this collab with these ladies! Fun and a learning experience. Be sure to check out their blogs and their social media feeds as well! Have a very Happy Fourth of July! And remember fashion and fireworks! Thanks for stopping by!
