Red, White & Blue
Shop the look:
I may be a bit early to this party, but I’m showing off my best patriotic look for this post! Why wait until the Fourth of July?
This dress had been the result of a maxi skirt/dress buying binge I went on before I left for India. We weren’t able to wear anything that went above our knees, and wearing pants in 90+ degree weather seemed like an awful idea. Maxi dresses and skirts were the most comfortable option in my opinion. This was a couple years ago, and at the time, it was nearly impossible to find maxi dresses! I was ecstatic when I found this one on clearance at Maurices. (I’ve linked to two almost identical one at the bottom of the post.) I always feel as though I’m wearing a socially acceptable form of PJs when I wear a maxi skirt or dress – they are just so comfy for summer (or winter in India, haha)!
As for my purse, sorry to show it off again, but I did warn you guys that it was going to be popping up in a lot of outfit photos! Haha. I’m in love with its adorableness, and it’s still on sale! Wahoo.
I also want to point out that the necklace I am wearing is actually a map of the world. How cool is that? My mom had surprised me with it for Christmas and made the earrings I am wearing to match it. She’s what you call.. the best mom in the world!
And if you are wondering where I am in these photos, this is my other favorite photo location in my new home base. The columns I’m next to are actually overlooking The Princeton Battlefield. That battle was a victory for George Washington’s Revolutionary forces over the British – I don’t think I could’ve found a more patriotic location for this post if I tried.
*I’m curious, what are some of your favorite patriotic outfits? And how do you feel about maxi dresses & skirts? (It seems to be a very heated love or hate kind of thing, haha.) Let me know in the comments!

You look so patriotic in these photos! You look great in this Navy dress and I like how you added the red to pop it. Your necklace is the best! So unique and so you.
Thank you, Joanna! You aren’t the first person to say that this necklace is very “me.” Haha. I hope you had a fantastic weekend! 🙂
