Here in the Middle of the USA, we take Fourth of July pretty seriously. Go down any main road and you’ll see huge tents full of people grabbing the best firecrackers to put on a show. My favorites are the fountains and sparklers. Haha. Easy to please. So it comes to no surprise that when you ask someone what they are doing for the fourth, one of these events below is probably going to be the answer.
But here’s the big question, what are you going to wear?! 🤣🙈
I’ve put together a couple outfit ideas for each event! These are real life; casual and dressy casual outfits that we would really wear from stores that are easily accessible in the Midwest. The Buckle, WalMart and Nordstrom. ❤️🇺🇸
A lot of these outfit ideas use the same pieces. This makes it easy to pack if you are going to the lake for the weekend or if you are on a budget!!
If I don’t have an item tagged in a photo below, it’s already been tagged above it! ❤️ For size reference, I’m 5’4 130 🙂 This is my first post like this, let me know what you think or what you would like to see in the next themed outfit post. XOXO
