This post is a bit late, but I have a really good excuse! I didn't want to let this week go by with out posting the weekly #UntamedStyle Linkup. I was out of town for a few days and didn't get home until late Friday. See good excuse any time you can get away and have some R&R its a good excuse. I wasn't able to get a post up before I left, and didn't want to wait until next Friday. So as the saying goes "better late than never" right!!! This weeks outfit is from 4th of July, Americas Independence Day. As proud as I am to be American, I'm not really into literally wearing red, white and blue or stars and stripes. This is my interpretation of being patriotic and celebrating our Independence Day.
My 4th of July plans didn't include any parties or BBQ's, just me and my love spending the day together and enjoying some fireworks. I was leaving for a my trip the following day and didn't want to be too tired or stressed out. It was a quiet day, but I still wanted to get in a few outfit photos and wear my new awesome denim skirt.
I've been searching for a denim skirt for a few months now, its been on my must have list for years. In the past year I've notice more denim skirt styles being offered and finally a few plus size retailers also started to sell them. Unfortunately I didn't act quick enough and many sold out. Lucky for me I am a great bargain shopper and usually find items I want on sale or even clearance. With a little patience and hunting I scored this skirt for only $10!!
I bought this entire outfit for $15, at Old Navy. It's becoming one of my favorite go to retailers for cute, stylish basics and classics. I am always looking for a good deal when I shop and Old Navy usually comes through. Like I said the skirt was only $10 and the stripe top $5, which was perfect for a 4th of July outfit.
I added a few details to make this outfit a little more festive and patriotic with accessories. I already had the stripes with my top, just need a few stars. Used my star earrings from Betsey Johnson and a shiny star hair accessory. Bright red lipstick and a pop of red with my Clare V clutch. Simple and easy outfit for America's Independence. As much as I love being of Mexican heritage, I am also extremely proud of being American born and raised. In my own way I like to mix both cultures whether it be in my outfits, or everyday life. Hope all my American friends had a wonderful 4th of July!
