Some Easy & Laid Back Looks Worth Trying Out This 4th of July


This year the 4th of July falls on a Wednesday. Which kind of makes it a little challenging if you want to make any big plans to go away. Back in 2017 4th of July was on a Tuesday and in 2016 it was on a Monday. When it is falls on a Monday you get a three day weekend. But when 4th of July is on a Wednesday it doesn't work out quite the same and you might have to reshuffle your plans.

Some people might decide to do a little weekend getaway the weekend before the fourth of July and come back that Monday July 2nd. Or some people might decide to take a half day off from work on Friday June 29th and take off the following week which is the week of 4th of July. So this way you have a whole week off to fly somewhere and still have some time to enjoy the few days you have left off from work. Some people might decide to go to a sunny destination, a beach or really anywhere that is warm and sunny.

If you can't get any time off from work that week before or the week of 4th of July and are staying in the city there will be lots of BBQ parties, pool parties, street fairs, food festivals, art gallery receptions, concerts and so much more to do. So I figured since 4th of July is about a week and a few days away why not start putting together some looks that are worth trying out during the 4th of July holiday weekend.

If you just decided to travel last minute and can't decide on what to wear or have nothing to wear no worries I got you covered. Also if you are staying in the city and going to a lot of the events in and around the city during the 4th of July and also have nothing to wear or wore most of your cute outfits already during May and June, no worries I got you covered.
