WHAT TO WEAR: Celebration

Happy Birthday, America! It’s that time of year where the city is empty on the weekend. Everyone is enjoying the beautiful summer weather at the beach or pool. Fourth of July is a big weekend for most CollegeFashionistas and Fashionistos. It’s a weekend where they can stop thinking about their jobs, classes and responsibilities and can finally let loose a little!

This Fashionista went all out for the occasion! Her American-themed outfit is perfect for watching fireworks, a BBQ or a summer party. Her outfit is under $40. All she needs to do is add her summer essentials: a belt and shoes from her closet and she’s ready to go! This outfit is totally affordable and wearable for the right occasion. She is sporting a red tank top and dark wash denim shorts from Target. A light wash chambray star-themed shirt and the summer classic—strappy sandal. The final touch to this outfit is her Michael Kors must-have belt making the entire look work. She, of course, dresses the outfit up with many accessories. She loves to wear her Fitbit to count her steps and stay healthy during her busy summer. She also stacked her Alex and Ani’s to add some arm candy. Of course, she is wearing her jersey proud watch in support of Hurricane Sandy. To top it all off, she is wearing a three-tiered gold necklace that was only five dollars; what a bargain! Now for the make-up. She went with a very simple eye, just a little mascara and a light contour to add some definition to her cheekbones. By adding that dark red lip, it makes her gorgeous hazel eyes pop!

One Simple Change: One change outfit can be removing the chambray star-themed shirt and adding a light-wash denim vest. This new look will be perfect for a casual day in the summer hanging with friends. The outfit is foolproof because it is fun and comfortable making these long hot summer days tolerable!

Don’t forget to #stayRADandbeFAB and enjoy the holiday weekend!
