4th of July Patriotic Outfits.

I know it was 3 weeks ago already but I am just now posting my 4th of July Outfits. As I always say "better late than never". They aren't anything mind-blowing but they are kind of cute, definitely patriotic and feature a lot of Red, White + Blue, so why not. It is still July - the month of America's Birthday - so I am not too late after all. =) Before I get to the Outfits I want to Thank ALL of you for your lovely comments, E-Mails and compliments about how I looked in my last 2 Outfits (Dress #1 and Dress #2). It seems like you all love seeing me in Pink so I will keep that in mind. I also happen to love Dresses especially Fit+Flare Styles like these two, so thanks a lot, once again.

This first outfit was worn on the 4th of July. It was a great day filled with many activities, including a Birthday Party for a 7-year old girl (our neighbor) that Vivian loves very much. The photos with balloons are taken at her birthday celebration. I wore my light knit Navy Mini Skirt with this White+Red Striped Tank Top, Red Strappy Sandals and Off-White Headband. To match the Gold Studs on the front of the Skirt I wore a Gold Necklace, plus a Gold Bangle and Red Cuff. A very simple Outfit with a little Nautical feel. Vivian matched me with her Navy Denim Skirt and her own Red+White Striped Tank. What do you think?
Vivian's Outfit:
Red+White Striped "Star Spangled Cutie" Graphic Tank Top (comes w/ the Denim Skirt): Koala Baby.
A-line Denim Skirt (comes w/ the Striped Tank): Koala Baby.
Navy Blue w/ Hot Pink Polka Dots & Lace, Bear-shaped Hair Clip: DIY by Me.
White Socks w/ Chiffon Ruffles: Wal Mart.
Silver Metallic, Flower Sandals: Target. 
Hand Jewelry:
Gold Stretchy Chain Bangle: Express (similar by Kate Spade), (gorgeous option by Madewell, great deal).
Red, Faux Alligator, Silver-Knotted Cuff: White House Black Market (similar, great deal, love this), (similar, woven leather, love this).
Sterling Silver Ring w/ Square Blue Stone in the middle surrounded by 3 tiny Silver Stones on each side: Kohl's (very similar, gorgeous option, great deal), (very similar, on sale), (similar, love this) - all options from Kohl's, just like mine (I love this ring).
Silver, Pave Ring w/ tiny Silver Stones & big Square Ruby in the middle: A Local Boutique (similar, gorgeous option), (similar, best deal, love this).
Red & White, Striped Tank Top: Gruppo Fiori (very similar by Gap, best deal), (similar, love this).
Navy, Soft-Knit, Ribbed, Pencil Mini Skirt w/ Gold Pyramid Studs on the Front: A Local Boutique (New) (similar, ponte, on sale), (gorgeous mini w/ zipper on the front, on sale), (love this jeweled option, best deal).
Gold Chain+Spikes Statement Necklace: A Local Accessories Boutique (New) (similar bib necklace, great deal), (similar w/ rhinestones, great deal, love this), (similar, best deal, love this).
Ivory, Grossgrain Ribbon Headband Featuring a Wide, Double-Bow: Forever 21 (very similar, love this), (similar, dressy), (similar from cloth, elastic option, best deal).
Dark Red, Patent Leather, Strappy Sandals: Aldo's (very similar in bright red, great deal), (similar), (similar, best deal).

This second outfit was worn on July 5th, in the late afternoon/evening. We went to the beach the weekend of July 5th-6th so for the most part of those days I was in a swimsuit and my cover-up. I wore my Denim cut-off Shorts with this Peplum White Tank Top with Navy Stars, from Express. I added a little Hat for both comfort and also because of the humidity and my little Red Bow Jelly Sandals and I was done. It was super hot so I went makeup-free and jewelry-free. This Outfit had Red, White + Blue in a more subtle way. F.Y.I. Each of my Outfits was under $75.00 each, because all items were on sale or gifted. What do you think?
Medium-Wash, Blue Jean Shorts w/ side zipper detail: Gap (very similar, this year's 1969 version by Gap, love these), (similar destructed pair by Gap, best deal), (similar BF style by Gap). Gap makes some Great Shorts especially Denim ones so these are all worth taking a look, at.
Round, Maroon-Red, Plastic-frame Sunglasses: Gucci (Birthday Gift) (New) (identical sunglasses in Tortoise - mine have redish-pink plastic frames), (very similar), (similar, best deal), (similar by Gucci).
Red, Jelly, Bow Sandals w/ Sparkly little Stones: Il Cammino (similar + a great deal), (similar 2), (ballet flat option).

P.S. Linking up with Agnes, Carrie, Elle, Erin, Ginny, Jena, Sharon and Tara.
