All hail, Americana!
We’re about two weeks out from celebrating the real MVP— the good ol’ U S of A. While I love a good opportunity to rep my stars and stripes, I can also get down with an excuse to have a few red, white and blue staples in my closet.
This year, I’m rounding up some patriotic-inspired pieces that have caught my eye, in no particular order.
White boots — Nope, still not over the white shoe trend. I’m really (oddly) into the white cowboy boot look, especially paired with a boho, floral frock for summer.
Fun fact: in high school I went through a cowgirl phase complete with multiple pairs of top-of-the-line cowboy boots, a Jack Daniels belt buckle and “cowgirl up” written in rope above my bed. Yep, I know.
Red + neutral stripes — Call the circus, I’m loving red and neutral stripes for summer.
Red ‘kini — I dig a good orange-y red (favorite nail color at the moment), and a bikini in that particular hue is no different. I’ve been eyeing this L*Space ‘kini for a while now (of course it’s sold out— eye roll).
White linen pants — Nothing screams summer (IMO) like a good linen pant. I’ll take some high-waisted ones, in white, please.
Navy, floral frock — Faithfull the Brand does floral, and flowy, wrap dresses (like this one) better than anyone. You heard it here first.
Tropical Gold Jewels — I’ve been pretty into earrings lately, and I’m kinda feeling these for summer. Anyone else?
Cherry pool float — Can I have this? Pretty please, with a cherry on top?
A nude set — Monday Swimwear is one of my all-time favorite swimwear brands. Partly because I’m obsessed with the co-founders, Dev and Tash, but mostly because their swimsuits are really kick-ass. I am obsessing over their nude, ribbed sets this season.
Red, retro sunnies — Currently loving these cat-eye, retro sunglasses from Kapten & Son. Gimme.
Flirty, ruffly eyelet lace — This. is. everywhere. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely seen a white eyelet dress, two-piece set or jumpsuit with ruffled sleeves this season. I’m here for it.
