If you like dressing in red, white, and blue, this is the week to go all out! Whether you are headed to the beach, a barbecue, or off to work, there are endless options from conservative to crazy. This is actually what I wore to work this past Friday, getting in the mood for the Fourth…
It is such a ‘Ginger’ outfit as she loved the classic nautical style and had a closet full of red/white/blue for both herself and my dad. Seen recently in previous posts, the white pants are by Theory, the Elie Tahari blazer a recent find at Revolve.
The pop of red are my treasured Manolo Blahniks – for the high, skinny heel they are remarkably comfortable, otherwise I would not wear them to work. In a fabulous soft suede, I purchased them two years ago for a holiday party, was very excited to own my first pair of Manolo’s – soon to be horrified when a friend’s chocolate martini landed on my left foot. Miraculously, no damage. 🙂
While you will not find much red in my closet, you will find plenty of stripes…these three tops on the right are all favorites of mine and all unique in their own way: a casual ivory/navy stripe by Saint James, a casual loose fitting navy/white cotton by Rag and Bone, and a fitted thin stripe by Last Tango that can be dressed up or down. Want to wear a scarf with your stripes? Florals, plaids, and nautical prints are all great choices and more interesting than a solid color.
Whatever you have planned for the Fourth, embrace the festivity in ‘Ginger-Bred’ style: wear your red white and blue, play patriotic music – singing along loudly, and enjoy!
God Bless America!
