American Woman

Throughout the summer and especially with the Fourth of July holiday approaching, I tend to gravitate toward classic, all-American styles and accessories.

One of my favorite pieces as of late is this easy-to-wear Olive and Oak black and white striped dress  – it’s comfortable and lightweight for warm days, and the waist drawstring makes it flattering on pretty much anybody. Topped off with an American flag scarf, a classic pair of aviator sunnies, and a bold, wearable red lip, I’m ready to head to a local firework display and celebrate this amazing country that we live in.

dress: Olive & Oak (similar, similar) | scarf: Charming Charlie’s (similar, similar) | sandals: Old Navy (similar, similar) | earrings: Dana Buchman (similar, similar) | aviators: Coach Factory Outlet (exact) | lippie: Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Fiery
Shop the look:

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; p = ‘//’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

    Awe, thanks girlie! These definitely weren't my best photos, but sometimes, you just have to make do with what you have, you know? I love that scarf – I literally throw it on over anything if I need a little extra color or accessory!
