Red. White. and Orange.

Happy 4th of July 2012 everyone! Hope everyone is having an awesome independence day full of family, fun, friends, white wine, barbeques, and THANKFULLNESS. You get my drift 😛 LOL. I just wanted to take the time out and say how blessed I am to live in this country. We all go through the day to day grind of work and life and sometimes forget what an amazing nation we live in of FREEDOM and individual rights.

I wanted to share with you my chic outfit (that’s SO not red, white, and BLUE) of what I wore during America’s birthday. My uncle stopped in town for the day so we went to the local military base and went SHOPPINGGGG YESSSS 😀 *um can we say no taxes?* followed by a bite to eat at Cheddars, our first time there, and of course the day trip would not be complete without TJMAXX. <<More haulage from ya girl maxxinista to come!

But anyways BACK to my quick outfit of the day!!

buttoned stripe top: H&M
orange t-shirt: J Crew
bow belt: H&M
grey denim shorts: Hco
purse: Chanel from China
shoes (closed toe b/c I did not get a pedi yesterday): MaxxStudio
arm candy: Jcrew rope, Ross black stones, TJMAXX rose gold magneto
hair: professionally dyed red ombre with caramel highlights! <<Also a video on that to come 🙂

Can you guess which piece cost the most??

Dare I say orange is slowly growing on me?!?!

Waiting for the train…or an antique bike..or a dapper air pilot to sweep me off my feet.
