2 Way Tuesday - Wearing Red, White and Blue

RED SKINNY JEANS - LTB Little Big
WHITE TANK - Bebe
CHAMBRAY SHIRT - American Eagle
GLADIATOR WEDGES - Dolce Vita for Target


HOW I WORE IT IN MAY:
STRIPED TOP - Truelight
STRAPPY WEDGES - Colin Stuart
BRACELETS - My mom's (India town)
BELT - My mom's (vintage)
"Gorgeous!  Beautiful!"  These were the statements Princess Sparkles made as we watched the fireworks show at the local high school.  She also told me what each firework looked like.  "A train!"  "That one has sparkles!"  "That one looks like bugs!"  It was so precious to hear how excited Princess Sparkles was to see the show.  Meanwhile, Pigtails kept saying "wow!  wow!  wow!" as she watched fireworks for the first time.  Even though it was way past their bedtime, it was worth it because it was such a nice night with the girls!

For "2 Way Tuesday" I thought I'd wear a little red, white and blue.  I know it's a day late, but I wanted to anyway.  I saw a similar outfit in a magazine and liked how this was patriotic yet could be worn any day of the year.  I'm always thrilled to find things to wear with my red skinny jeans!

Anyway, hope you all had a "Wow," "Gorgeous" and "Beautiful" 4th of July!  And don't forget to enter my very first giveaway here.  It'd really mean a lot to me!

Your red jeans are great - I love the first look, it totally says causal Americana.

Chic on the Cheap

Adorable, I don't have red jeans or girls. But, I have 3 sons and red capri's...........
Your look is great and I'm so glad you had a great Holiday.

The first picture reminds me of a vintage-y Americana thing because the colors are a bit more faded. I love it. It's an unconventional way to celebrate the red, white, and blue.
I am beyond in lust with the top in the second picture. It's absolutely perfect.

Those red jeans are awesome, and surprisingly versatile.

So funny! B had no interest in watching the fireworks from anywhere other than my in-laws' living room for some reason. I don't know if it was the heat or the noise, but she wanted nothing to do with being outside during the show :)

Love the color of the jean jacket in the first pictures. Looks great and I'm glad you had a nice night with the girls.


As a "big girl" I just stayed in. Boring.

Mongs said...

I remember this red jeans, I wanted something like that but haven't found any at the thrift store. It's interesting how you created two different looks from the same jeans. One is grunge chic and the other is glam chic. It's wonderful to be sharing stuff with your mom, she must be a fashionista too.

How fun! Those jeans are really incredible on you. I think I like them with the striped top the best, the low-slung belt is super cute!

Also, so glad the girls enjoyed the fireworks. Those are the little things that make me happy. To see things from my kids perspective.

I love the red white and blue look! It looks subtly patriotic, not like you're wearing a flag. Perfect!
