Going All In or A Gentle Touch — July 4th Edition

July 3, 2017

July 4 outfits

For the Fourth of July will you be Going All In or sporting A Gentle Touch?

On July 4, 1776 13 colonies gathered together to sign the Declaration of Independence, thus severing their political connection to Great Britain.  This was a monumental event.  Selecting what to wear to honor this occasion is not nearly as big of a decision as severing political ties to another country, but it is still a decision that you’ll have to make if you want to sport an outfit for this holiday.

In honor of the Fourth of July tomorrow today’s Going All In and A Gentle Touch outfits use the exact same shorts (the Faded Glory Bermuda shorts are $13.46) for both looks.  Doing so keeps the total price for these options very similar.

Spend Or Save — Denim Jacket

A denim jacket is one of my Top 10 Must Have’s For A Casual Spring Wardrobe.  I’ve been sporting the outfit combination of a blue denim jacket paired with a white t-shirt and black jeans for years.  It’s a favorite combination of mine because this outfit provides the comfort of a t-shirt and jeans outfit worn on the weekends, while also looking put together enough for a casual office environment during the week.  And I’m not alone.

Spend: Chain Handle Bag | Wrap Dress | Sneakers

Save: Chain Handle Bag | Wrap Dress | Sneakers

Over at the blog youlookfab.com, Angie wrote about her recent trip to the Netherlands and the fashion trend that she saw most often—chain handle shoulder bag and sneakers.  As a long time fan of pairing blazers with jeans, I always adore the idea of mixing dressy items with something more casual.  And I can’t think of anything more fun than pairing one of the ultimate classics—black wrap dress—with a chain handle shoulder bag and sneakers for an up-to-date look.

If you’re interested in this look for your spring capsule wardrobe I’ve presented 2 options, spend or save. The 2 price points are very different, the spend outfit is $788 and the save outfit is $209.93.

How do you pick whether to spend or save?
