Fashion, Festivals, and the 4th of July | Thriftanista in the City


Fashion, Festivals, and the 4th of July

I don't know about you but my 4th of July long weekend plans include food, festivals, and lazing about as much as one can with a toddler. I will be wearing flowy tops and elastic waists to protect the 4 day food baby.

4th of july outfit ideas

My outfit is inspired by the 4th -- red lips, white and blue striped blazer. Stepped outside and it's cold and rainy. Really, Chicago? Really? The hawk went right through the silk blazer and peeptoes. I ran back to the indoor station!

The rest of the day was spent making a big pot of soup with jacket hanging on the back of a chair and wedges by the door hoping the sun would miraculously appear. It did not.

Once my soup making and devouring was complete, I camped out in front of tv and computer for the rest of the evening. Womp. Womp.

boxy blazer

Bright skies and warm temps are planning to return to the city so maybe there's a chance to wear my dumpster dived boxy blazer this weekend. I've had it over a year. I only recently had it dry cleaned but I can never find a good time to wear it. It needs cool (not cold) evening air and fireworks!

The white tee is my old faithful. Having a v-neck and frilly flower cutouts are the perfect simple but girly touches to a basic tee.

jeans with floral toms wedges

Y'all, I found mid rise jeans. Apparently Urban Outfitters makes mid-rise and high-rise at a pretty reasonable price. I found these while thrifting at Unique but I'm tempted to buy more at the store. On sale, of course.

TOMS wedges were found with the jeans. I wasn't sure about them. I thought I had gotten over my wedge fetish. I was drawn to the bright flowers and when I slipped my foot into the padded footbed? Ooooweee. Sold!

So assuming our weather gets itself together, this is what I will be wearing on the 4th!

Loving the Toms! I wasn't too festive clothing-wise for the 4th. I'm hoping to improve on this next year and get the kids involved too. I got Moo a 4th of July shirt and then couldn't find it. Talk about a mommy fail.
