Maxi's done right

My favorite holiday by far is 4th of July! Summertime, fireworks, beach (hopefully!), and patriotic clothing, because, seriously no one (and I mean no one) should be wearing an American Flag shirt in October!
Not so bold?  Color shorts and a white t-shirt are the perfect solution!

JAG "Sunny" Shorts available at Ports & Company $64

I'm having a love affair with stripes this year.  This rugby dress from Splendid makes me swoon!
It's lightweight the underneath tank makes for effortless layer.
Wear it as a coverup at the beach or to a BBQ, it's a two-fer!

 If your plans include the beach I love this Gretchen Scott coverup (wear your American Flag suit underneath a la Kate Upton on the cover of this month's GQ!!!).  This one is pretty cool because the collar turns into a hood and if you're anything like me you need something to keep your highlights from frying in the sun all day!  

This shirt is an American Flag. Need I say more?!?!
4th of July (and Memorial Day) are literally the only time of year you can wear a flag shirt!
We love this one, it's super stretchy without being all bathing-suity and is one size fits all!
The the best part, it's only $34!
