4th of July Gingham Outfit.

      Happy July 1st! (Side note: where did this year go?! How is July 4th literally just a few days away?) I haven't shared 4th of July outfits every summer on the blog, but out of the years that I have done one I think today's look might be one of my favorites yet!

Top // Jeans // Sandals // Purse {old, similar here}

     Can you believe this cute gingham tank top is from Walmart?! They are seriously stepping up their fashion game, although I think the cutest items they are are online-exclusives (which this top was). They have the most fun and trendy pieces online, and hundreds of items are under $25. I found this top from Rachel at Something Delightful. She shares Walmart finds often and has introduced me to a lot of online exclusive lines and items that I wouldn't have known about otherwise! The brand is called The Get and they have a lot of other cute items too.

     I am also obsessed with my new Steve Madden pearl slide sandals!! They're super on-trend and I've already been wearing them a lot, and they're very comfortable! I have to be honest- even though slide sandals are really in right now, I don't personally like a lot of styles of them that I've seen. A lot of slides that shoe brands are doing are too casual or clunky for my style. But I think the pearls on this pair add a feminine and classy touch. 

     What are you doing for July 4th this year? Hoping your plans look much bigger and more fun then 2020! I was actually supposed to be in DC for a few days over the holiday weekend visiting my friend Mercedes. We have spent the 4th together in both 2019 and 2020 (last year we did a COVID-safe weekend trip to Mathews, VA!). Unfortunately I had some big news come up last week that will be keeping me here in Charlottesville for the holiday weekend (check out this week's Midweek Ramblings post if you don't know what I'm talking about! 😉). I hate cancelling plans at the last minute, and especially for something I was looking so forward to with a friend. But so is life! I am hoping to have time this weekend to catch one of the public fireworks displays with my Charlottesville girlfriends. 

      God Bless,

      xoxo Annaliese
