For the 4th of July I decided to wear one of the outfits I put together for my “July 4th Outfit Ideas” video. I was actually going to wear the 3rd outfit in that video but went with this one instead for I needed something super comfy because Tom and I were visiting home that day; and it’s a 5 – almost 6 – hour drive.

I have been dying to wear this dress ever since I got it last month but I couldn’t for it needed to be hem; And silly me, I left my sewing machine at my parent’s house. Any who, I was able to hem it while I was home and just had to wear it right away. I love the shape of this dress so much. The drapery just really compliments my body shape and makes me look slender. Plus it was super comfy and oh em gee, it has pockets! O.O;
Dress from Karmaloop
One of my favorite outfits for this summer. Not only is the whole outfit SUPER affordable but it is also great quality! The bralette print is to die for and it is thick enough that I don’t have to wear a bra with it. As for the skirt, it is just plain love – give me some lace + circle skirt and I’d love you forever! hehe
Speaking of circle skirts… haha This outfit is similar to the last. I just love pairing up bralettes with circle skirts. I’m super short so I think this look makes me look taller and slimmer. I love it! Oh and this time, the bralette is the lace one; And check out the pattern on the skirt! Isn’t it cute!? I found it on sale at Kohl’s and couldn’t pass it up.
