4th of July Inspired Outfit of the Day

I love to dress up for 4th of July!  Red, white and blue make a great color combination for summer inspired outfits.  I kept it casual, yet classy with my love for nautical in there.  Today, I’m wearing my 4th of July inspired outfit.  I found the navy blue striped blouse and high waisted white shorts at Bealls Outlet.  Aren’t they cute?  I added a cute rose hair clip to my blouse for extra festive flair.  My white wedge sandals are from Ross.  I painted my toes red and baby blue.  For my nails, I went with a frosted white nail color.  Star sparkle earrings that dangle and blue and red bracelets add some color.  To top it off, a girl can’t go wrong with red lips!  I’m wearing Mary Kay’s lipgloss in Rock n’ Red.  I love that color.  Also, you’re seeing my hair just washed and in its natural state.  Didn’t have time to style it with hot tools, so just let it air dry and rockin’ the beachy waves look.  Do you enjoy dressing up for Independence day too?  Be sure to watch my video of how I put together my outfit today.  Hopefully it will give you some inspiration for your 4th of July outfit.  Enjoy the video!

Here’s to a safe and blessed 4th of July.  I pray that you have a fun day with your family and remember that freedom isn’t free.  Yet, Jesus came to set the captives free and whoever is free in Jesus is free indeed!

Blessings and Shalom,

Coastal Inspired Summer Outfit {Fashion Friday}

I admit.  It’s been a while since I’ve written a Fashion Friday post.  Summer has inspired me to begin again.  I enjoy writing these posts and sharing them with you. You’ve also shared that you like these posts as well.  So here we go. . . 

“I’m missing the ocean.  I miss the sea.  
The white sandy beaches are calling my name.  
If I can’t go there, I can bring it to me.”      

Today, my outfit is inspired by the beautiful flavors of salty air and aqua blue waters.  My little star fish friend also joins me for Fashion Friday.  White is a color that is a staple in my summer wardrobe.  I’m definitely not afraid to wear white.  White is cool, crisp and classic.  Pair it with any color and you’ve got a stylish summer outfit.  I’m wearing my white capris and white wrap around the ankle sandals.  I added a baby blue tank top and layered it with a crochet crop top.  This top is special to me, because it belonged to my godmother/Aunt Mary Ann.  It’s a beautiful piece I received after her passing many years ago.   She loved the ocean as well, being a avid scuba diver and beach lover.  Her and my Uncle Fred traveled to many shores around the world.  Do you want to know a fun fact about this cute top?  When my Aunt lived in Las Vegas,  she was asked to be in a fashion show.  This is the very top she modeled!  Fashion for me involves the meaning behind the outfit as well.   If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I get my fashion inspiration from beautiful memories and color meanings.   I must feel happy, pretty and joy.  And this outfit does all that!  Do you also like coastal inspired outfits?  Be looking forward to more coastal inspired posts and videos soon.
