Patriotic Pride

Happy Wednesday! As you may know it was Fourth of July yesterday so that meant I got to wear red, white and blue (hence the title.) I love dressing up for any holiday so of course yesterday's was another excuse to. I dressed up last year in my Fourth of July outfit and thought I would do the same this year. I initially didn't plan to but the outfit came together just perfectly so I just decided to go all out and add some things to make it the ultimate outfit to celebrate in. I don't live in the US at the minute but tomorrow I'm actually getting my passport renewed and going to the US Embassy and my dad says technically it's US property so that means I'm going to the US for a few hours. You don't even know how tempted I am to wear this outfit. I'm not sure yet so please let me know if I should or if I will be the only fool silly enough to do such a thing. I know it would be super funny though and something I would see myself doing. I'll see how I feel in the morning. So Happy Independence Day, here is what I wore to be patriotic!

For my outfit I went with this white top I just got from H&M. I am a big fan of the ruffle sleeves and these are so fun. It is pretty big on me so I recommend sizing down. I wore a L which is my normal size in H&M but this was pretty baggy. I like it though as it can be worn with leggings. If I went with a M it would have been better with the skirt so it is just your preference. The skirt is from last year I got at Forever 21 and it is navy blue and has stripes perfect for the theme. I honestly had no shoes to go with so I went cream and they are my favorite shoes right now. I went with a red bag to complete the red white and blue and to go with my red bow and red lipstick. I went with the American flag pendent from last year which is now becoming my tradition to wear every year. That is all the red white and blue I wore for my Fourth of July outfit!

That was my outfit I got to wear on Fourth of July. I was supposed to shoot this outfit the third and have it go up on the actual day but the weather has been against me and has been raining so much. So Monday instead of shooting the outfit I went to the mall and had a fun day with my cousin who I've now hired as my blog assistant and to take my pictures and help me a few blog admin stuff. So we spent the whole day doing a bit of shopping and I picked up so many fun things that I can't wait to wear for the blog. I'm looking forward to it and showing you what I create with it. Finally the next day which was actually July 4th I got to shoot the outfit. It was still grey and gloomy but I'll choose that rather than pouring rain. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out and something pretty funny happened while taking these and I'm still laughing. It's one of those stories where you had to be there to get it but I am still laughing just thinking about it. Make sure to check out my outfit I wore last year too if you want more. I hope you enjoyed this outfit and had a fab Fourth of July if you are living in the US. I have to go as I have an early night ahead since I need to wake up early to go to the US Embassy for my passport. So have a lovely Wednesday everyone!
