Independence Day is right around the corner and believe it or not, I almost forgot. At the start of June you could barely walk a block in London without seeing purple posters, banners, or memorabilia to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee. However, Fourth of July in England is nearly the exact opposite of the Jubilee – why would they celebrate a day where they lost a war and a very profitable piece of the British Empire?
My husband, being British, calls the 4th of July traitor day but as nearly half of my readers are in the United States – and I am still an American – it is still a cause for celebration. In my online shopping endeavours over the past few weeks I came across the adorable patriotic collection at Pink Lily and then began seeing stars and stripes on a half dozen more sites including American Eagle, Etsy, Free People, and Lulus as well as Nordstrom, Shein and Target. From all of these cute options for 4th of July apparel I have gathered a collection of cute ideas for next weekend!
Lulus Display Your Love Stars And Stripes Sweater
American Flag And Letter Graphic Tee (only $10)
Star & Striped Print Scrunchie | American Flag Star Striped Ripped Hole Denim Shorts – Blue
USA Merica Tank | BY PAIGE Needlepoint American Flag Flat
Urban Outfitters The Rolling Stones USA Ribbed Tank Top
And while a bit misleading as the title of the post says 4th of July apparel I came across two very patriotic pieces on Wayfair that I felt I just had to include!
Inflatable American Flag Pool Float | American Flag Wood Cornhole Board
The options above just scream stars and stripes with American flags and very blatant patriotic colors. While cute I think it limits the seasonality of when you can where them so I also wanted to include more subtle options (in this set, click to shop as well!)
PAIGE Rebecca Cherry Red Stripe Thong Bodysuit in Ivory and Cherry Stripe
Lulus Adrift Tie-Back Mini Swing Dress | Lulus Delphi Tie-Front Strapless Romper
Free People Firecracker Flare Jeans in Mid Stone Blue
Fill Your Time Navy Stripe Textured Swimsuit
Let It All Go Navy Star Print V-Neck Blouse
Would you wear any of this 4th of July apparel?
Going to get the swim rings for my annual 4th of July pool party . Not sure if they will get to me in time but great idea to add color to the pool and easy to store.
Hmm I like both sets of bathing suits especially the one with the ruffle on it.
Will be really flattering I think as I have big shoulders and not a huge bust.
Hoping it will take the eye away from these two issues!
Great shorts with those stripes and decorations on the pockets. I’ll definitely have to get a pair of those. Good choices Kelly.
Lovely picks Kelly. For me its a micro bikini in the day for my girlfriends pool party and afterward for the barbeque near by its cutoff shorts, crop top and flip flops.
