4th of July Summer Stripes

The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. I spent mine at home in Chicago for the long weekend. I wore quite a bit of red, white, and blue all weekend! I was very proud of this red and white striped cotton jumpsuit for the family BBQ…it’s practically an American flag! A lightweight, easy summer jumpsuit is a closet staple, in my opinion. Plus, unlike skirts or dresses, I didn’t need to worry about the wind on the balcony. I paired this casual jumpsuit (which I plan to wear all summer) with gold strappy sandals and my new favorite accessory…a boater hat! I have enjoyed watching the “hat evolution” over the past few years. The fedora gave way to the Panama hat, which gave way to the boater hat (trend alert)!

Hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday and is enjoying their post-holiday weekend.
