The 4th

Happy 4th of July everyone!
dress: ross dress for less - old
shoes: forever 21
belt: thrifted
sunglasses: big lots
bow: very very old


Please excuse my disheveled appearance today. Mom and I picked a friend's vegetable garden while they were out of town. So naturally we got rained on! I asked her to snap a couple outfit shots before we left.

Tomatoes!


I look so goofy in these pictures. Hooray me!

This dress is a few years old, but I love the patriotic colors in it. I didn't even need accessories to complete the red, white, and blue look. I'm not one of those that needs to be subtle - especially on a holiday. I tend to go all out with color schemes. Subtle holiday outfits are nice too, don't get me wrong. Just any excuse to go all out is a good enough excuse for me. Must be my theatrical side.

I hope all you US people are having a great day off and that everyone else is having a nice Monday!

That is a really cute dress with great details and a lovely print! Nice Ross find =) And I love that your sunglasses came from Big Lots. I used to go there all the time with my mom. It used to be called Pic 'N' Save in California.
