Do you have plans for the upcoming holiday? Maybe a picnic, a fireworks viewing party or a neighborhood block party? Get inspired and make sure to add a dash of red, white and blue to your outfit. Here are some of my favorite picks (some right out of my closet!):


Nothing is more “All-American” than jeans, and my favorite brand is Joe’s Jeans. If you’re looking for style and the most comfortable fit ever, you have to try these out! I love the ‘Lottie’ Slim Crop Straight Leg style and in my experience, Joe’s Jeans run roomy, so you may be able to go down a size. Bonus.

When I’m on the run, I love the ease and simplicity of a crossbody bag. And the one I carry is by Kate Spade. It’s the Cedar Street Mandy bag. I have it in black, but I love the bright Marashino color. It’s just the right size for a compact (how about this Estee Lauder Shining Stars Powder Compact?), small wallet, some lippies, a smartphone and your car keys. Perfect!

I love the simplicity and comfort of an espadrille flat shoe for summer. I wear these J. Crew navy striped espadrilles with everything. This classic style instantly make your outfit look chic.

What better way to incorporate red, white and blue than in nail art? This patriotic stripe design is by editorial manicurist Jin Soon Choi. She applied JINSoon Cool Blue to the nail bed, followed by Michael Kors Gossip to the middle of each nail, leaving two navy stripes on each side of the nail. Then apply a stripe of JINSoon Coquette in a stripe down the middle. Last, add a top coat to seal the look. Cool!

I don’t want my makeup to be too fussy, but I do want to look pulled together. That means easy, no fuss makeup. Nothing could be simpler than a neutral eye and loads of MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Smoky Extravagant Mascara (it’s waterproof!). Finish with this Tom Ford Lipstick in Slander and you’re ready for anything!
