Preppy And Patriotic

Friday, May 26, 2017

Like most people, Memorial Weekend is the start of the summer season. I wish I could say that I have fun plans like going to a barbecue or a fun day of swimming at the beach. Unfortunately, that is not the case. I'll be going to work on Saturday at 6am. I have to say, I'm dreading that. The last couple of days, I've been sleeping in until 10am. For some that might seem early, but for me that's super late. I'm the type of person that cannot for the life of me sleep past 8. So let's just say waking up for work on Saturday is going to be a struggle. And I wish I was one of those people that dresses up all cute in red, white and blue for the weekend. If you are one of those people, I've got you covered. All of these items are under $20. Whether this purely is inspirational for you, or if you plan to purchase some of these pieces for the summer, I hope you enjoy!


1. I've been seeing this whole USA top trend on Instagram lately. My first immediate reaction is a typical tourist shirt.... I mean come on, a shirt that has my country's name on it!? But I have to say, I think it's the perfect "athletic" looking outfit. Wearing this crop top with jean shorts and white Nikes/ Addias, is the cutest comfy outfit.

2. Yes, I'm still obsessed blue and white stripes. I don't think I'm ever going to stop loving the print. But honestly, how cute is this two piece! Could it get any cuter with the bow back!?

3.Bralettes are a must of the summer, especially this daring red color. They're just perfect for when you have open back shirts, but it's also great to add a pop of color. Hint Hint, how cute would this bralette be with that two-piece. Hello, perfect patriotic outfit!

4. Besides stripes, gingham is another favorite print of mine. Let's be honest, if I could wear stripes, polka dots, and gingham for the rest of my life, I'd be content. I think what makes this gingham top so cute is the fact that it has a high neckline and cute ruffle peplum.

Let me know your plans for the weekend; I'm curious to know!
