Unexpectedly (or maybe I am just a space cadet when it come to ANYTHING pertaining to a calendar) but the Fourth of July is near, which means Julys is near, which means June is already over, and so is half of the year!
However, it does mean that July is here and my penchant for wearing red, white and blue unintentionally can now seem intentional for one day out of the year. Lately I have been seeing bloggers and fashionistas of all kinds pair their button-downs with jean skirts. While everyone ~~*PrAisEs*~ the return of the jean skirt, I beg to ask a different question: where did it go in the first place? Not to get all philosophical, but if everyone loved it "that much," and "they're so happy," that it came back: why did they ever stop wearing it in the first place?
In reality I am wary of anything denim that is not a pant, but I figure this look was something I could get on board with. It's structural with a touch of whimsy, and looks great with heels or sneakers. Also, since this look is primarily blue, and my skin is always a shade of casper white, a nice red lipstick, red ribbon, or scarf can tie in the whole look together nicely and makes it suddenly ✨perfect✨ for any Fourth of July fête!
Now all I need is a sangria.
