Hi! I hope your July 4th memories are not long gone from your mind, so that this outfit is still relevant. It was honestly kinda a bummer of a holiday in Nashville. It stormed on and off all day, I insisted on swimming and grilling anyway, and subsequently was really cold. Though we went downtown for the biggest firework show in the country, it rained through the whole thing, and by the end of the show, the sky was so full of smoke and clouds that we couldn't see a THING (fireworks, the Nashville skyline, nothing!)
So though it didn't really feel like a quintessential July 4th- mid-Summer, sunny skies, perfect pool party- I can't complain about a long weekend that included house parties, cheese dogs, a friend back in town, and cleaning my apartment from top to bottom (because I'm a little crazy.)
One of the silly things on my Summer bucket list was a fun patriotic ensemble for the 4th. For some reason (I blame this, mostly) I did not have my stuff together last week, so this outfit was kinda thrown together...but I'm not mad about how it turned out!
My dearest darlingest Katie gave me this dress as a birthday gift when I was home, and I've been wearing it non-stop! It's the white sundress I never knew I needed until it arrived in my life. Thank you Katie for the most perfect presents! I'll keep marching on with this absurd no-clothing-purchases goal, so long as I have amazing friends who know me better than I know myself (and give great gifts :)
I definitely had other shoes in mind to complete this outfit, but the rainboots ended up being clutch, as it rained through the fireworks (that we walked to.) And though the yellow is not super patriotic, I love the way the boots look with the sundress! This might end up being my favorite rainy day outfit, adding or subtracting a sweater, seasonally.
I hope you all had a lovely holiday! Any fun or crazy stories to share? I was green with jealousy looking at all my California friend's pictures from the day. Hope the sun found you wherever you were!
Over & out, for now!
