My Red, White and Blue


When it comes to dressing patriotically, I find it extremely easy to pull together blue and white (or off-white in this case, but cut me some slack). Red is typically the missing color in my wardrobe. It ‘s simply not a color that I am drawn to, so when I was trying to pull together this outfit I was almost at a loss. That’s when it came to me that red doesn’t need to be a part of my clothing, but nails and lips could easily fill that missing gap for me. I had planned on wearing a nice pair of navy pants with this top, but then I realized that we would be attending a picnic after church this past Sunday. My plans changed and I grabbed some denim instead. It changed the look, but was still fun (and more comfortable) and held my red, white and blue look together without looking forced.
