How is it that the Fourth of July is already upon us? This summer is flying by! I literally can’t get over how quickly time flies by once you’re a parent! I’m trying to soak in every moment of this summer! It’s our last summer before my little guy starts elementary school. I’m already in tears thinking about that! But here we are! I’ve teamed up with four other amazing bloggers to share four simple looks for the Fourth of July with items you already have in your closet, to create a fun and simple look for any Fourth of July celebration on a budget!
The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays since I was a young girl growing up in Southeast Alaska. The Fourth was always such a big deal in my hometown! The big parade, booths on the dock, boating, bbq’s and so many amazing memories with friends! So it’s been so important to me to share that joy and make memories with my own son on this great holiday!
Creating four looks with things I already had in my closet was surprisingly simple! I wanted to create looks that could easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I also wanted to create four looks for little man, because he loves dressing up for the holidays as much as I do.
For our first look I kept things super simple! I wanted something fun to wear for a parade, hanging out at the lake, having a bbq! I started with a fun red tank (any red tank would work for this look), my favorite pair of high waisted acid wash shorts, a hoodie tied around my waist in case it gets cold, and a pair of striped sandals. For Toshko, these looks were so easy, because red is his favorite color, we have so many red tops! A simple red tank, an acid wash denim shirt and some navy shorts and these darling shoes I found on clearance at Target a few months back!
Our second look is my favorite look of the day, mainly because this dress has been a staple piece in my wardrobe for years, and is one of my favorite dresses of all time! It’s one of those dresses that always makes you happy, it’s easy to dress up or down and I love the flattering fit! I paired this dress with a simple hat and a pair of striped sandals, to dress this up, I’d add a pair of wedges and some jewelry! For Toshko, we had this cute Stars and Stripes button up shirt from Target, a pair of navy shorts and a blue pair of shoes.
For our third look I went with my favorite pair of high waisted jeans from American Eagle, this darling button up top from Target, striped sandals, a fun hat and some white earrings! For Toshko, he’s wearing a basic red T-shirt and a cute pair of striped shorts! My outfit could easily be dressed up with some heels for an evening event.
For the fourth and final look, I stuck to a casual look with a basic v-neck, some high waisted denim and sandals. For little man, I also kept it simple with a blue striped shirt and some navy shorts!
I hope these outfits give you all some inspiration to create similar looks for the Fourth with items you already have in your closet! Make sure to follow me on Instagram (@copperbush) and watch my stories to find all the links to the bloggers I teamed up with!
Happy Fourth from our family to yours!
