4th of July Outfit, Feather Print Shorts and Cheese

Bucket says when I pull out my camera.
He loves to turn on the charm.
He also loves Pigtails' silver glitter ballet flats.
Who can blame him.

NAVY & RED STRIPED PEPLUM - Urban Outfitters
BRACELET - J Crew (gifted)
AQUA WEDGES - Target (thrifted)

FEATHER PRINT CUT-OFFS - Jessica Simpson (via Macys)
OPEN TOE BOOTIES - Charlotte Russe

Here are a few looks from the week.  The first outfit I put together in anticipation of "4th of July."  The top I got for $10 at Urban Outfitters.  I asked Princess Sparkles if I should wear chestnut wedges or aqua ones and she said the aqua ones were more interesting.  The second outfit includes a pair of feather print cut offs I got at Macys for $6.  I love wearing booties with shorts!  Linking both of these outfits up to "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.

I was excited to find a way to change up the typical patriotic outfit.  I love an unexpected twist - like mixing "interesting" aqua wedges with red, white and blue, or a baby boy flashing a cheesy smile in some silver glitter ballet flats.

Love your striped peplum in the first look Claire! And so funny that your little boy is such a ham now. My kids go through different spurts. One moment they are like "take my picture! Take my picture!" and the next they're like "why are you always taking my picture?!!?"

I love both outfits. The striped top is so beautiful and it has great colors. I also like the placement of the stripes. Then that chambray top is amazing and goes perfectly with those shorts. I am also a huge fan of both pairs of shoes. Plus the kids look so adorable.
