KEEPIN' IT REAL: Fourth Of July

Red white and blue...put them in an ensemble together and you have an automatically patriotic outfit! Even more so if you do it within a week of the fourth of July.

This July 4th I have a black tie wedding in Baltimore (congrats Jeni and Craig!), so there is little room to be fashion patriotic in a full length gown. Instead, I decided to sport my fashion fourth fever today!

I don't post a lot from H&M on this blog, mainly because they don't have an online site. But the other night, I needed some retail therapy...and boy did I get it! H&M has a ton of cute stuff. I bought jeggings (crazy!) But I also bought this delightful dress. There is a wrap detailing in the front that you probably can't see, but what I love about it is that there is full skirt coverage and THEN the overlay of the fabric (this is a significant plus on a windy day!). The ruched sleeves are a good option for ladies who don't like going sleeveless, and I'm in love with the red belt accent (which came with the dress!)

Happy Fourth Of July :)
