After wearing red, white and blue the entire past week, yesterday I was craving for a look with different colors. I have worn this dress only three times since I bought it, however every time I wear it, I have too much fun with it. The graphic print and the flowy tent style made me feel so playful that my boyfriend asked me several times during the photo shoot to calm down so he could take at least one still picture.
MY SMALL WARDROBE
…the source of my personal street style looks
Some of you will probably recognize this little black dress. It's one of my oldest pieces and also the easiest to wear and style. I know it's very short and maybe too short for a gal of my age, however, I can't see myself getting rid of it yet. As I said in earlier posts, this week I was going to post USA patriotic looks, so I decided to style this LBD with red, white and blue accessories. This time I gave a different use to my old bandanas and instead of wrapping them around my neck, I wore them around my hips. The boater hat was the perfect touch to compliment the bandanas and also give this outfit a patriotic look.
Algunos de ustedes probablemente reconocerán este vestidito negro. Es una de mis piezas más viejas y también la más fácil de llevar. Sé que es muy corto y tal vez demasiado corto para una chica de mi edad, sin embargo, no me quiero deshacer de el todavía. Como he dicho en entradas anteriores, esta semana iba a publicar looks patrióticos de USA, así que decidí llevar este vestido negro con accesorios de color rojo, blanco y azul. Esta vez me dio por darle un uso diferente a mis bandanas y en vez de envolverlas alrededor de mi cuello, me las puse alrededor de mis caderas. El sombrero de barquero fue el toque perfecto y complementador para las bandanas y ademas también le dio a este look un toque patriótico.

As I mentioned in my last post, this week I will try to wear United States patriotic looks due to the Independence Day celebrations coming up this Saturday.
Last year, I wore this skirt with the same clutch (I can't get enough of stripes) for another patriotic look (see it here), however, the outfit was a little more dressy. Today I did a few changes by wearing it with flats and I layered a silver tank top to a white button-down shirt. I like how the tank top added a fun touch and interesting proportion to this preppy and relaxed look.
I wore this look last week to hang out with my boyfriend's nephew and his friends that visited from Michigan, therefore, I wanted to be casual. I believe this look is actually appropriate to wear around this upcoming 4th of July, because it's comfortable enough and it has red, white and blue. By the way, my Liberty vintage pendant (found at an antique mall in New Orleans) is one of my favorite accessories when wearing any patriotic look.
If you love nautical looks like me and you live in the USA, you probably will not have a problem finding pieces in your wardrobe for any patriotic holiday.
The next few days, and as I did last year around this holiday, I will be wearing more looks with the United States colors, and of course nautical.
This is one the combos I wanted to do for quite a long time and I always forget, so I made a reminder note to try it this week. I don't own a skirt or shorts in army green, so my only choice to wear black and white gingham with army green was with any of my long pants. I decided to add even more masculine accents to this combo by wearing a men's Panama hat and aviator sunglasses. I'm so glad I tried this combo, because it's easy to wear and yet very fun.
