Patriotic (Sort Of)

dress: TJMaxx (1, 2, 3)
bag: Old Navy (12)
shoes: H&M (1, 2)
belt: H&M (similar)
Happy 4th everyone! I feel somewhat sacrilegious wearing the red, white and blue colors. After all, it's a flag of a nation and people gave their lives for it, not just a fashion statement. That's my personal opinion, and yet I still want to join other bloggers in celebrating this holiday. (Just a side note. Why don't we all look like a Christmas tree during holiday season?)
I hope everyone enjoys their three day weekend and gets some rest. I will be celebrating with family and taking the next week off from blogging. It's our anniversary and I'm doing a 5K run, so need to train and plan some festivities. It's been a long time since I took a break but I think I need it. I'm thinking about changing direction and re-branding, or even quitting all together. Not sure what the next step is and what God has for me at this point but I do know that there more important things out there than outfits. I love dressing well and showing ladies how to be modest and fashionable but maybe that's not my thing in life. As I take time to contemplate, pray and enjoy my family, I hope you have a great weekend. Thank you for reading!


  1. Love that environment for the shoot! And thank you, happy Independence day to you too! I need to pick out my outfit for the 4th still. :) Hope to see you by my bloggie soon!


  2. I know what you mean about being sacreligious - however, my husband is former military and he said he really appreciates when people wear our nation's flag colors because it shows pride for our country!! We stylish ladies just happen to make a fashion statement with our outfits of course. I love both ways you've worn this dress!
    Enjoy your time off, Happy Anniversary and best wishes with your 5k! Can't wait to hear your thoughts when you return.

    Happy Fourth!!!!

  3. This white dress is super flattering. You look stunning and I adore your statement belt. It all works so well together.

  4. I love both takes on red, white and blue! I don't usually dress theme-y for holidays, but I think the 4th is a great day to celebrate our nation's colors!

    I hope you have a good week off. It is definitely nice to take a blog break sometimes. Happy Anniversary!

  5. Such a beautiful white dress! I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend. And I had a 6 month blogging break so sometimes it's good to just take a little break!
