Friday Five :: 4th of July Edition

Happy Friday! Can you believe that it is almost the Fourth of July?!

It’s time to start outfit planning for your holiday festivities! I am dedicating today’s “Friday Five” to comfortable, easy-to-wear outfit ideas. I am hoping that this post gives you inspiration to recreate similar looks out of what’s already in your closet or simply purchase a piece or two to complete a look!

1. Striped tee + red shorts. A navy/white striped tee is my go-to top for any patriotic holiday. You can wear a striped tee with white shorts, denim shorts or these red shorts for a classic 4th look. If you don’t yet own a striped tee you love, this is an essential piece you NEED in your summer wardrobe pronto! You’ll wear it constantly, I promise.

Here are my favorite striped tees to shop ::

2. Blue and white stripes + denim shorts. If you follow me on Instagram, you know how much I love this little off-the-shoulder pom-pom top. It’s such a great little affordable top {only $35}, that I own it in three colors! This blue/white version is perfect for the Fourth of July! It can also be worn with white bottoms. Just add a red accessory like these tassel earrings to finish the look!

3. White top + red shorts. You can’t go wrong with a plain or lace white top with red shorts. Pair with sandals or sneaks and you are sure to look patriotic and festive without much effort! These $38 blue sunnies are the perfect accessory!

4. Red top + white or blue denim. You can’t go wrong with wearing a classic red top for the Fourth! Bright orangey-reds are trending this season and are on the most flattering shades of red on all skin tones. This is a great purchase to wear now through Fall. The floral one I am wearing here is currently 60% off and this one is another favorite and just $35!

5. Anything blue and white gingham! Gingham is always a classic choice for the Fourth and really any summer occasion! Gingham is a trending pattern and seemingly everywhere this season…and a print to adopt if you haven’t already!


Last but not least, if you are like me and your Summer sunscreen supply is ALREADY running out…I am replenishing my sunscreen with BeautyCounter’s sunscreen sticks. Why? Well, first and most importantly because these are SAFE! {I am sure most of you have read all about the scary chemicals in most sunscreens.} And, two, because my kids can apply the BeautyCounter Protect Sticks themselves and actually don’t whine and complain about putting on sunscreen. {Can I get an amen from all you mama’s?!}

I personally love this sunscreen because it is SO easy for touchups on my chest and shoulders while at the pool, lake or beach, and doesn’t leave any greasy white residue! Purchase here under “Lauren’s Summer Skin Social” and I’ll send you a $20 Lip Conditioner in your choice of either Peppermint or Calendula with any $50 or more purchase!

Have a fabulous weekend!
