Stripes and Sparkles OOTD

Happy 4th of July American beauties, and to all my readers from other countries.... happy Saturday!  Since today is the American independence day I'm going to show you my festive OOTD for the holiday featuring stripes and sparkles to represent our flag!  I put together this outfit to celebrate at a friends house, but it is also perfect for the beach or a picnic as well.

I love this Baby blue striped sundress  from Abercrombie that  I am wearing!  This dress is a baby doll fit, my favorite, and it's made of a light cotton material which is great for spending the day in the summer sun.  Also along the bottom of the dress are tiny silver sequins which give the outfit a bit of sparkle for the holiday without over doing it.  

For accessories I'm wearing my black and white "Kitti" sunnies by Quay Australia which remind me of Audrey Hepburn, so chic!  Sunglasses are a fashion must if your going to be spending the fourth in the sun.  I'm also wearing my pearls because they are a classic outfit essential!  As I always say, if your not wearing your pearls, are you even dressed?  For shoes I slipped on these silver sparkling flip flops from Payless.  These flip-flops are super comfortable   and add another touch of sparkle to the outfit!     

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and to those who celebrate have a happy holiday weekend!
