Stars and Stripes

I'm not going to pretend that I'm a super patriotic person, but for some reason I just want to rock those stars and stripes this summer. I started looking around for some affordable finds just in time for the 4th of July.

I've been eyeing this tank for a while. It's from Target, and only $10 right now! Unfortunately, it is only in stores, and I could not find it at mine. If you've ever been to a Target in Brooklyn, you know they're a disaster. Hopefully you'll have better luck than me!

This fringe tee is probably a little much for me, but so adorable! I can just imagine them with some denim shorts and cowboy boots...missing Texas much? It's only $12.80 at Forever 21. Perfect for picnics and fireworks.

Another blue star print item. I am kind of obsessed with this skirt. Throw in that it is only $6.49 right now at Charlotte Russe, and I'm in heaven. It can easily be dressed up or down. Plus, these bandage-y skirts make my big butt look good!

I want to wear this striped zip top with the skirt above. I'm all about shades of blue. This top is on sale for $15--that would be a whole outfit for under $25. These two pieces would clearly be worn again and again. This top can go from work under a blazer to date night to picnic in the park.

Going to something a little more formal? This Mudd lace dress is completely adorable. If you want to be very patriotic, switch out the belt for a red or white one. The dress also comes in white, but that can be a risky color choice for July 4th activities. Plus, this dress will easily transition to fall and winter. Add some boots, tights, and a sweater. Perfect for any season. Right now this dress is $31.99 at Kohl's, but they're always having a sale or discount with your Kohl's card.
Speaking of belts, this one is the perfect color combination. It's red, white, navy, and gray. I love the vintage feel from the braided look. Only $5.80 at Forever 21! 

I realize I've been neglecting red here, but there is just a ton of cute blue stuff out right now! This red pleated dress is cute and great for a variety of events. You can even pair it with the belt above! It's $34.99 at Kohl's.

I can't help but post this two tone wedge. It's only $24.99 at Kohl's. A lot of the reviews mention that it's comfortable, which is a must for anyone who walks a lot. Wedges are the best because you don't get stuck in sidewalk cracks or fall through subway grates. Even better when a pair of shoes doesn't cost you a whole paycheck!

This stars and stripes scarf is quirky and fun. This will instantly turn your outfit into a July 4th celebration (as long as you aren't dying from heat). It's $19.99 at ModCloth.

Happy Independence Day!

Urban Outfitters Sale!

Urban Outfitters is having a great sale right now. If that doesn't make my heart beat faster, I don't know what will. There is a lot of fun summer clothing and accessories for $20 and under! (Sorry in advance for the small pictures from their site.)

This elephant shirt is adorable. It could be paired with shorts, pants, or a skirt. Very laid back, but still funky. It's only $19.99 right now. 

I have a confession--I am obsessed with pink clothing/shoes/everything. I want these shorts. They add a fun pop of color to any outfit. Once again, only $19.99.

I just about squealed when I saw that this skirt is only $9.99! It looks perfect for a casual day out, or dress it up for the evening time. I love stripes, especially cheap stripes. 

I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that I have some eclectic taste. This sweater is right up my alley. I want this to wear with shorts, over dresses, pretty much for anytime, anywhere. I am crazy in love. (Only $9.99!)

In the summer I'm all about the bandeau bra. This one is a bright color and lace, win-win situation. Bandeaus are perfect under those racerback or spaghetti strap tanks. This adds a flirty bit of color and cuts out the annoying constriction of a regular strapless bra. $9.99.

Looking for just a little bit of literal summer for your wardrobe? This shell ring is so much fun. It comes in three different styles. It's $9.99, and a whole lot easier than trying to make a hole in your own shell. 

There is a ton more sale stuff at incredible prices, so head over to Urban Outfitters to check it out. Free shipping on orders over $50. You can return anything you don't like to stores--always a plus! 

Yes, you need to shop this.
