great beach outfit

Great 4th of July Outfits are meant to be easy and red, white and blue. Since I wanted to get into the spirit of things, but I didn't want to look like a flag, this year, I opted for no stripes, but lots of fun, patriotic accessories.

Patriotic Style Shoes

These shoes are vintage 2013 from Tory Burch. Every time I wear them, women stop me on the street to ask about them. I know they aren't the exact same pair, but this red wedge from Tory is also fabulous. I wish I could link to the exact pair, but when you build a wardrobe, you shop your closet for good stuff from the past.

The Perfect Beach Bag

The beach tote is from Ame & Lulu. It's the Cabana print. This bag went to the Bahamas and was spacious, sturdy and right on trend. At $72 it's an investment in a beach tote that will last for seasons, and they have multiple prints. And unlike most beach bags, this one has a top zipper so all your stuff doesn't spill out. Smart.
