Red, White, and Retro

With a holiday coming up, it is only appropriate to start raiding my closet searching for every red, white, and blue item I own and begin outfit planning! (Isn’t that what all girls do?!?) I always realize when holidays come around how little I have of certain colors. I have a closet bursting with blues and whites, but I am lacking red. So, I went with a bold red lipstick to add some color to my outfit! I love the retro printed shorts I bought from Forever21 a few months back and thought they were perfect for a casual July Fourth outfit option!

  2. Those shorts are too cute! I love printed shorts versus the regular denim shorts. This is such a cute look and perfectly festive!
