Stars and Stripes

It is almost the 4th of July guys!!! I was not born in America but I absolutely love this holiday and the patriotic spirit that comes with this celebration. I also love to see red, white and blue everywhere. I love the fireworks, I love the food and the whole family coming together.  To me, it is like Christmas in July!

This year I did a collaboration with Karli Ellis from Everyday-Ellis Blog. I reached out to her because I love her style and the fact that she promotes modern modesty. She was so nice to accept my invitation to collaborate. We put a few outfits together to give you some ideas for th 4th. (Now I know I am posting this on July 3rd, but some of us are procrastinators, and I just got the pictures back today, so I apologize in advance.)

For the details on Karli's outfits and her blog post, visit her amazing blog here

Outfit #1

This is my semi-formal look. I made my skirt and I am planning on posting some DIY tutorials on sewing, but you can find a similar skirt here

My top is from Old Navy and it is only $4! You can find it here. I got the shoes at H&M but I could not find them online. If you like them make sure to check the store because they are only $25!

Outfit #2

This is my casual look. I used the same t-shirt with jeans from American Eagle and my forever beloved Salt Water Sandals

Outfit #3

This pretty dress is perfect for any summer event, specially for a more semi-casual look during the 4th. Again, I paired it with Salt Water Sandals and a pretty hat.

I hope you enjoyed this post. I had so much fun shooting with Karli and Charissa Lee Photography! Make sure to check out their blogs and follow them on Instagram. I can't wait for tomorrow! We are in Idaho for my husband's family reunion, and it is going to be so great to spend the day with all the Galbraiths. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe 4th of July. Let's enjoy the freedom and beauty of this blessed land.

Happy almost birthday my dear second home,
