Americana at Work: Dressing Up My Red, White, and Blue

If you're a US reader, I doubt you've forgotten that Independence Day is coming up on Saturday. I'm not sure yet what we'll be doing but I know it will involve barbecue, fireworks, and wearing red, white, and blue. Like most holidays, I enjoy dressing the part for the Fourth of July, but I don't like to be overly theme-y about it. No flag shirts for me, just lots of stripes in shades of red, white, and (navy) blue.

Today I have a festive Americana look that's perfect for work. I took my favorite navy blue dress (that I wear constantly--if you follow me on Instagram you've seen it's frequent appearances in my daily outfit snaps no doubt) and styled it as a skirt under this summery red striped top. Ivory wedge sandals and classic pearl earrings add the (off-) white elements to complete my subtly patriotic look.

Come back tomorrow for my weekend look!
