Wearing a navy checked dress with a contrasting collar, I am getting into the holiday mindset. I look forward to this weekend as my family gathers together at the beach. We do a traditional BBQ and my son mans the grill. He is an excellent cook!
I don’t know that I will wear this exact outfit for the fourth, but this navy checked dress, actually a tattersall check, is a cool frock to wear on a hot day in Manhattan. I am very glad it is sleeveless, as the temps and humidity are quite high here!
My dress is vintage, as is my belt , so the red, white, and blue is perfectly thematic for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. My basket bag, last seen here, is very light and adds a touch of neutral warmth.
I know gingham is a popular trend, but this larger check is a bit more graphic and packs more of a punch. A navy checked dress in gingham will almost appear as a solid, whereas this pattern is bolder. Espadrilles were an easy style choice , the striped details add a nice complement to this dress, and these platforms are comfortable.
One dress, and voilà, I am dressed and holiday ready. My ideal kind of styling! Check to that!
This is a short post as I prepare to go to the Hamptons for the long holiday weekend. I hope my US readers enjoy the holiday, and for the rest of my followers, I wish you a fabulous weekend , which is a celebration of sorts, in and of itself.
SHOP The Navy Checked DRESS!
Below see three choices that are fresh and will look on-point for many seasons.
1- Dina Dress by April Cornell is sweet and classic, as well as beautifully made. This is picnic ready!
2- Navy checks get an update here by J.Crew Factory, and this sweet number is easy on the wallet. Noteworthy sleeve treatment!
3- Option number three is half price, and fabulous by DVF, a perennial favorite.
Any of these can be styled with espadrilles, like the ones I am wearing, or a trending flat sandal. Red sandals would add a pop of color and make it perfect for the 4th of July! Add a straw bag, some sunnies and some SPF and you are on your way to a perfect beach or lake vacation!
What are you wearing for the 4th of July? Will you celebrate with the traditional BBQ and fireworks? Let me know!
