my everyday style: all american!

Is it just me or does anyone else crave patriotic looks, not just for the July Fourth holiday... but pretty much for the entire summer?  I'm of course planning out a few holiday looks in advance, but I tend towards red, white and blue this time of year in general.  I couldn't pass up this adorable "All American" tee recently (plus it's SO soft!)... I went up a size to medium to leave room for tying a knot in the front. Which if you ask me can take any ho-hum tee and make it fun and special instantly. I love it paired with a classic white linen blazer for summer.

And if you aren't a jeans in the summer kind of gal, you can easily swap them out for a cute denim skirt or shorts

Jeans (I went down a size, these run big)

my everyday style: gingham get!

Gingham has got to be one of my most favorite summer patterns... I always forget how much I love it until I wear it again! This gingham top is meant to be worn off the shoulder, but I think it's just perfect for wearing on the shoulders in a boat neck style.  If you are between sizes, go up a size so that there is extra room in the armpits for wearing it up on the shoulders - or I would just go up a size in general after my "off the shoulder epiphany" last week.  I'm totally in love with this top (it comes in tons of colors) and can't wait to wear it with shorts or black or white jeans this summer too.

I feel like the summer passes by so quickly I am working to embrace it right off the bat this year... thus, the summer-ready earrings and I even splurged on a fun new summer phone case (although truth be told my previous case was getting a little rough... I drop my phone ALL the time).  I mean, if now isn't the time to have a little fun with your wardrobe, then I don't know when is!
