Gave Proof through the Night

It is the week of the 4th of July celebrations, I can’t wait!  Back in May I did a bunch of Memorial Day posts with patriotic themed outfits and this time around I decided to go a little more casual with my outfits.  Of course shorts and maxi dresses are a must during the summer time.  Here in NJ it gets really humid in the summer so if it’s 80 degrees it feels like 100.  Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating but that’s what it feels like sometimes.  Thankfully I live near a bunch of lakes and I’m only about 1.5 hours away from the shore so I can always go jump in the water. 

Anyway, this outfit is perfect for any type of celebration whether it be at the lake, or a party.  It’s a very subtle patriotic outfit which is why I added the scarf.  I didn’t wrap it like a normal scarf because well it’s hot outside and wearing a scarf any other way than a “necklace” like this outfit would be torture.  Plus, I completely forgot that I bought these shorts two summers ago when I visited my brother in Boston for a weekend.  They are super comfy which is saying a lot because I don’t like to wear shorts too often.
