what to wear for the 4th of july [2]: stripes + leather + jewels

Gap t-shirt (similar) | Guess leather skirt via eBay (similar) | Aldo heels (on sale) | Zara necklace | J.Crew bracelet | Ring from random boutique

You’re probably not going to be sportin this outfit at any barbecues, but if you’re heading out after the fireworks or doing something a little fancier, this outfit is perfect. The striped tee and leather skirt keep it cool and a little edgy while the ruffle, heels, and necklace elevate it and make it appropriate for a night out. The black skirt keeps all of the red, white, and blue grounded. Again, it’s patriotic without wearing a huge flag on your shirt (even though a red and white stripe shirt is almost like a huge flag, but hey, it’s also classic). It’s fashion meets the 4th of July.

On an unrelated note, today is the last day of the Charm & Gumption giveaway. You have until midnight!
