6 Fun & Festive 4th of July Outfits to Recreate (+ $750 Nordstrom Giveaway!)

Can you believe the 4th of July is coming so quickly?! I'll be traveling and it's going to be so warm and sunny, I can't wait! Here's 6 patriotic looks you can re-create to wear this holiday and the best part is, they're all pieces you'll want to wear all summer long, not just once for the holiday! No matter what you're doing to celebrate, one of these outfits will be a perfect fit for your day.

Gingham Tie Front Shirt / Silver Stud Earrings / Kendra Scott Cuff / Red Crossbody / White Ankle Strap Sandals / White Distressed Shorts

Everything in this look is something you'd wear all summer long - especially this cute gingham tee, it's so versatile! And these are my favorite denim shorts, they fit so well and are so comfy!

Ruffle Gingham Dress / Blue Ray-Bans / Essie 'too too hot' Polish / Floral Tassel Earrings / White Converse

This dress might just be the cutest thing ever! You can dress it up with a cute pair of wedges or keep it casual with the best Converse ever!

Red Beaded Earrings / White Lace Bathing Suit / Blue Striped Tote / Lace-Back Tee / Navy Striped Skirt / Flip Flops

PSA, these red beaded stud earrings are $9.99! They also come in blue and they're so lightweight - the best summer statement earring ever! If you're planning on being by the pool or at the beach on the 4th, this is a perfect look!

Bow Espadrille Sandals / Tortoise Sunnies / Distressed Americana Shorts / Striped Tee / Red Striped Straw Tote

This is my favorite look and likely what I'll be in this 4th of July! ;) It's going to be so hot here (is it where you live?) and if I'm not by the pool, a quick and easy look like this will be my go-to. This striped tee comes in a few other colors and you'll live in it - it's the perfect basic tee and it's only $15. I also can't get enough of the straw bag trend - this one is $24 and comes in natural straw and blue as well.

Gingham Strap Bag / Essie 'caviar bar' Gel Polish / Floral Raffia Earrings / Criss-Cross Sandals / Eyelet Shirt Dress

How freakin' cute is this gingham strap bag?! I love it! It looks super cute with this simple but comfy white dress (great for a really hot day - it's so lightweight) and the prettiest navy nail polish ever!

Navy Tassel Swim Coverup / Double Strap Sandals / Floppy Hat / Navy Striped Bikini

When I saw this bikini I was SO excited! It's extremely affordable (top is $19 and bottom is $14!) and the red and white stripe make it so patriotic and perfect for the 4th of July! And you really can never go wrong with something with this many tassels like this coverup!

Which of these looks is your favorite?! I'm so excited for the 4th of July and also so excited for this Nordstrom Giveaway!!
