Backyard BBQ










Today’s outfit takes us away from being the hostess and brings us to attending a super casual backyard bbq. You know, the kind with hotdogs, fireball, a PBR keg and probably drunken, illegal fireworks- aka the really fun kind! This is not something that you want to get dressed up for, but you still want to be cute for those Insta pics! Chances are no matter what city you’re in on July 4th, it’s going to be HOT! So ladies, it’s time to bust out those short cutoffs! Cutoff shorts are perfect for this type of event. These are a pair that are stretchy {think jeggings} so they are also super comfortable. I wore a blue plaid shirt that I tied at the bottom- I mean come on, nothing says America more than this! I wanted to be a little extra festive, so rather than the beads and leis that are typically passed out at an event like this, I opted for a multi strand red beaded necklace. To keep my feet clear of fire ants and beer spillage, I chose my new favorite Vans, which are surprisingly breathable and perfect for all day comfort. I take any advantage {almost never}  to wear these red classic Wayfarers that I got on super sale. Again, another replacement for those tacky red, white and blue party favor glasses that will more than likely be lying around and after a few vodka soaked watermelons you might have wound up wearing…you can thank me later!
