Polka Dot Top – Perfect for July 4th!

Can you believe the 4th of July is exactly two weeks away?! Summer is just starting, but time seems to be flying! While we tend to keep our 4th of July plans relaxed, I’m already planning what to wear! As of now we plan to spend the day at the pool or lake followed by going to a baseball game… nothing more American than that, right?! This polka dot top* is a great 4th of July outfit option. It would be adorable with white shorts! It’s really lightweight (perfect for warm weather!) and it’s less than $50. I paired it with white denim for dinner last week. Even though it’s been hot I still can’t resist wearing my white denim because it’s always FREEZING in restaurants haha!

*a quick sizing note: This top runs pretty big! I ordered an XS (my typical size) and it was REALLY big on me and I had to get it altered. I suggest going down at least one size in this top!
