Caroline’s (Patriotic) Covets N.6

Can you believe July is just two days away? While I’ve been in summer mode since the end of May I feel like summer really kicks into gear when fourth of July comes around. The end of June came so quickly that I hadn’t even thought of plans for the fourth until this past week and let me tell you, planning a last minute trip for 4th of July weekend is not a good plan. Pretty much all buses and trains were sold out when I went to buy tickets. But, I did finally find tickets, so I’m headed home to Massachusetts Wednesday night for the holiday! I’m definitely in need of a little city detox and a weekend with family and friends will be perfect. 

If you’re anything like me (aka way behind on this whole 4th of july thing) you’re just now thinking about what you’ll be wearing for your holiday plans. The great thing about waiting ’til the last minute to do some red, white, and blue shopping is that there are some ah-mazing sales this week. J.Crew has 30% off select styles, Old Navy is having their All American Summer Sale, and Banana Republic is offering an extra 40% off all sale items. I have a wish list a mile long and I just keep adding more to it. 
Back in high school my friends used to joke that all I wore was red, white, and blue (see here and here). While my style has definitely changed since then I can’t help but go all classic Americana and nautical when the 4th comes around. There really is nothing better than a perfect striped shirt and broken-in denim shorts. However, if you like to a little dressier on the 4th this off the shoulder dress paired with red tassel earrings is the way to go. 
I couldn’t be more ready for a mini vacation and a little extra relaxation time. What are ya’ll doing for the 4th? Please share!  If you’re looking a little planning inspiration check out Mackenzie’s recent posts about 4th of July entertaining.
