Wardrobe Diaries: Not Another July 4th Post























I'm sure everyone is sick of seeing July 4th inspired blog posts by now. But if you're not, here is one more just for you.

This past holiday was spent with the family at the carnival celebrations on our Army Post. For the occasion I decided to dress up as patriotic as possible without looking like a walking flag. I threw on a chunky gold chain along with some cognac details so that I could easily pass for looking nautical if I wanted to. I do love me a good nautical themed outfit. I think it's my second favorite look to the russian snow princess look that I adore to death.

This polka dot vest I picked up on sale at Anthropologie at the start of the year. As soon as I saw it, I was intrigued. If you look closely, each polka dot is made up of tiny white beads. Those who regularly read my blog know how much I love classic pieces with a unique twist. Polka dots will never go out of style, and this top was just too pretty not to add to my collection.

Haha, I've enjoyed seeing all the patriotic posts! These photos are wonderful and I love what you wore. The polka dotted vest is such a cool print mixing with the striped dress.

Red lips and nails with a navy and white outfit are a GREAT way to celebrate without going overboard! Well done! Your little girl's sandals are so adorable, too!
