Red, White & Blue

Shop the look:

I can’t believe how fast summer is going! I feel as though I blinked and June was over…and it’s now the weekend of the 4th! Which of course means you need to be decked out in your best red, white and blue attire.

I did an outfit post a few weeks ago on one of my favorite red, white and blue outfits. However, I had one more occasion to be patriotic for. This outfit was for Golfing for Veterans last weekend! (Click here to see my post on that awesome event.) Have Clothes, Will Travel had partnered with Golfing for Veterans for the event.

I had spent the day taking pictures in beautiful, sunny, 80 degree weather – and this dress was super comfortable the whole day. It was a bit short for what I was doing that day, though. So, I put a pair of patriotic shorts on underneath it and had no worries, and you couldn’t even tell I had them on. I was also very pleased with only spending $12 on this dress! You really can’t beat that price!

My shoes were another purchase I was super happy with. These Salt Water sandals are the best! When I first tried them on I was a bit worried because they fit a bit different than what I’m used to. (There’s a bit of room by the toes, and your heels go right to the end of them.) But I wore them for an entire day of running errands, then for the entire day at Golfing for Veterans and then I wore them for an entire of traveling through airports (which included a lovely 10-minute sprint through O’hare) – and they were comfortable for every single day! I now want a pair in every color. Haha.

Flag pin

I also want to call attention to the lovely Etsy shop I bought my flag pin from. KittyCatShop did an awesome job of getting this pin delivered to me in an incredibly short amount of time. I placed my order Friday afternoon and it shipped within an hour of my purchase and was then waiting on my doorstep by Monday. I love it! The quality is great, as well.

What is everyone doing to celebrate the 4th this weekend? Let me know in the comments! I’ll be heading to Philly to be as patriotic as I can be. Haha. And I’ll probably be wearing this exact outfit again. 😉

    I love your outfit! I think we’re just going to stay in town this year and go to the parade, which is boring (but at least I have the day off!).

      Thank you so much! And going to a parade doesn’t sound boring at all to me! I love parades! And yay for a day off! 🙂

    I absolutely love this dress!! It is so cute! I have also never heard of SheIn – it is awesome! It is one of my new favorite websites now! Have a fabulous Fourth of July! xx

      I am absolutely obsessed with Shein! They have such cute clothes, and they are dirt cheap! It’s awesome! The sizing can be a bit off sometimes, though. So be sure to look at all the measurement tables on the page before you buy anything. 🙂

    Haha, love the shorts picture! So cute. Your styling on this outfit is perfect, from the fun purse to the little flag pin! Hope you had a great 4th of July weekend!

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Thank you so much, Jennifer! I hope you had a great 4th as well!

  5. Amanda Brezovsky says:

    Haha, you are so adorable, I love it. The shorts photo makes me smile. Love how comfy chic this outfit is and those sandals really pull it all together! Perfect for a relaxing 4th spent in Philly. As of right now, we do not have anything planned. The weather could go either way so lol.


    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Oh gosh, thanks Amanda! I’m so mad I haven’t been over to your blog in a while – I really want to see your Cape Cod pics! (Tomorrow morning, I swear.) Hopefully it’s lovely weather all around this weekend, and you have a lovely time with whatever you decide to do. 🙂

  6. I loooove that dress! I can’t believe it’s only 12 dollars, it’s so cute – and I love how you paired it with those red sandals. Beautiful. And the red lips and earrings are like the icing on the cake!
    Gorgeous you!
    Hope you have a lovely 4th of July and weekend!

    Much love,

    1. haveclotheswilltravel says:

      Aw. Thank you so much, Mona! I hope you have a lovely weekend, too! 🙂

  7. A) The picture where you are showing off your shorts cracks me up. B) Can you wear that Ladybug purse in every post because I love it SO much. C) $12 for that dress? Are you freaking kidding me. I’ve contemplated purchasing from Shein before, so I’d love to hear your experience with it. I’ve ready a lot of mixed reviews but there’s some really adorable things I want!
    Hope you have fun in Philly, I’ll be there tonight to see fireworks, and then heading down the shore in the AM!

      Haha! Thanks, Amanda! And I’ve been using this lady bug purse so much that I’ve been trying to make an effort NOT to put it in posts…but I”m pretty sure it’ll be featured again next week. Haha. 😉 As for Shein, I have had nothing but positive experiences with them. Shipping takes a bit longer (about 2ish weeks), but that’s about the only negative I have to say. What you get for Shein’s prices is out of this world. You also just have to pay attention to their sizing info…like with this dress, the measurements were way different than the last dress I bought from them. Oh, and shipping is free!

      And thank you! We’re heading down in the morning. Have fun at the fireworks!
