Welcome to the third How I Style It monthly link up party. I have the pleasure of hosting alongside several other bloggers to bring you this themed link up and as we have been advertising to you the theme this month is #patrioticpretties where you will show us how you style your red, white and blue outfits and we show you how we style ours. Today I will show you how I styled mine and then I hope you will link up any recent post containing how you styled your tees.
My outfit is just the cutest! I choose it last minute as we (the family and I) were about to do some last minute grocery shopping. However, this outfit can be repeated this coming weekend for 4th of July festivities and celebrating our country’s independence.
I love my Chambray top (I even guest posted about how to style it five ways for warmer weather here on Carries blog Monday). Here I choose to button it up to the bust line and tuck in one side. Underneath I am wearing a white cami tucked into polkadot shorts, add the red boat shoes and I feel preppy and ready for a day on the house boat on the lake (fingers crossed that this happens this coming Saturday).
Now on to the fun part of this post, the revealing of our new member to the family “drum roll”:
Meet Franklin (Frank, Frankie, Frank n Beans, Frankenstein, etc) our first dog as a family. He is a Boston Terrier, house and crate trained given to us by one of my hubby’s friends because he was being abused by another dog in the family (even if it was Frank’s fault most of the time haha). So we adopted him and boy is he a loveable and a good dog. The kids are crazy over him as my husband and I am too. I love his smile in this picture above (or crack of one). He is a mommas boy for sure.
I forgot to wear accessories in this post but then realized Frank is all the accessory I need haha! (check out creeper in the background though, chills). Look for more of Frank on the blog though, we love him like our baby.
How do you style your red, white and blue?
