Can you believe it’s already Fourth of July weekend? I honestly don’t know where the last four months have gone — it feels like just yesterday that I was running out to snowy Lincoln Park armed with three containers of hot coffee to shoot this post.

But shockingly enough it’s already July 2nd!

When it comes to dressing for America’s birthday I often try to get a little creative with my outfits. This striped textured dress is the perfect, subtle compliment to my adorable star necklace from T&J Designs (though my outfit from their lookbook shoot is also perfect for the 4th). Stars & stripes are the name of the game after all and it’s fun to play on the theme in less obvious ways.

And is there anything more exciting to wear in summer than a swing dress? They’re so romantic to spin around in and so freeing. I actually wore this dress for my bridal shower years ago and I love to find excuses to remix it into my outfits.

Enjoy the long weekend for those of you in the States!
