Little Navy Dress, Sporty Americana.

How was your Monday everyone? Hard to believe how fast September went and this is the last week of it. I never discuss politics here but we have to choose a new president soon. Did anyone catch part one of the presidential debate yesterday? I thought it was very interesting. They both made valid points. I think each candidate wants what is best for this country and its people but will they achieve it? Do you plan on voting the first Tuesday of November? I sure do. I think voting is one of the biggest rights we have as American citizens and shouldn't be taken for granted. How do you feel regarding this matter?

If you remember, a month ago, for the first time I showed you how I wore my new LND (Little Navy Dress) and it was for work. Back then I mentioned that a week later or so, I would show you a casual way to wear/style this dress. Just like last time, I paired the dress with red and white. Well a week went by, a month went by and I didn't post the casual look, until today. I have taken so many outfit photos this Summer that you guys haven't seen, because due to being super busy I have only posted about 3 new OOTDs a week (sometimes 4). Anyhow this is how I wore my LND on the weekend of Labor Day. I figured before September is over, I need to post these photos. 

I went for a red, white and blue (lots of navy blue) patriotic look to celebrate this great country. Actually on the Friday of Labor Day Weekend, I wore this same exact outfit minus the floppy hat and with simple white pearl studs instead, to work. I didn't take photos of that. But then on Labor Day Monday I re-styled it the way you see it here. Love the navy pom charm in my red bag from Gap. I have an identical black crossbody like this too from H&M. I would love to own a camel one too, wish I bought the one Old Navy had this Spring. These tiny cross-body bags are still big and compact enough to fit quite a lot in them and though small, they make a statement. Speaking of a statement: my necklace makes a big one. I love the oversized modern beads and that it is long. You may remember it from my other All-American Memorial Day Look. I love it. I bottomed off the look with my new Adidas Look-Alike Sneakers from Target. So would you style a Little Navy Dress with Red+White accents for an all-American look?
