Fourth of July :: Outfit Inspiration

Whether you're having a low-key Fourth of July with family or a big neighborhood bash or a relaxing day at the beach, putting together that red-white-blue outfit is a lot of fun.

My family used to go to North Carolina every year and my sister and I got really into the outfits.  (Realistically speaking, I was probably more into the outfits and sort of forced/dragged/persuaded her to join in.)  One year, we had these weird scrunchies from The Children's Place... oh, how cool I thought they were.

Of course, my days of scrunchies and American flag bikinis are more than over.  This doesn't mean that festive outfits that are sophisticated and "grown up" can't be put together.

Fourth of July :: Water

Fourth of July :: Fireworks

Fourth of July :: Parade

The College Prepster family is heading to Longboat Key for the weekend... I'm preparing my suitcase and filling it to the brim with reds, whites, and blues!

What are you wearing?



  1. love the dress in the second one!! just wish i wasn't so maxi dresses EVER fit!

  2. I'm loving the middle combo in the first set, and the third set!

    I'm going pretty basic for my 4th of July outfit: navy shorts, white polo, red scarf, and silver sparkly sandals!

    Have a great trip!


  3. Red bikini=adorable!! The 4th of July celebrations in my family are crazy and I think the best part is showing up clad in red white an blue (and the all American food of course)! I plan on giving myself a quick at-home mani-pedi with a red gem of a polish and a bit of martha stewart glitter! Happy fourth to you!!

  4. I love shopping at st. armands. my grandma has a house in venice so we always head to longboat and siesta key. I'm really wishing i was there right now!! Have fun

  5. The red bikini and 'parade watching' outfit are adorable. I love 4th of July outfits!

  6. Cute! I really love the red bikini!

  7. Oooh, have fun in Longboat--my grandpa lives there and I love it; great Lilly store on St. Armand's! Cute bikinis, too.

  8. I have to point out that the Kendra Scott necklace in the fireworks outfit is pink/fuchsia and not red so it doesn't really match. Sorry, I'm just OCD like that haha. But everything looks SO cute!!

  9. Great outfit picks! Going to be looking for these at our Tanger Outlets here on Hilton Head. Great blog!!

  10. Love the parade outfit!! Mine looks very similar... so cute!

  11. Love the beach sets! I will be wearing a red/white striped Ralph Lauren top with ruffles and navy shorts!

  12. I couldn't love any of these anymore & I don't usually wear red. So cute! xoxo
