Stripe Midi Skirt + What To Wear For July 4th

Who's excited for the 4th of July?  Some of you may know (if you've been following for a while) that it's my favorite holiday (tied with Thanksgiving), and it's also the twins birthday!  They'll be turning four on Tuesday, and I still can't get over the fact that they'll be FOUR!  We'll be celebrating up at the lake, and I'm excited for a weekend filled with barbecues, boat rides, fireworks, and time with the family.

If you're wondering what to wear this 4th,  I'm sharing a little outfit inspiration for you today.  In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a stripe skirt, which also happens to be on my list of summer wardrobe essentials.  Not only are they classic, but I love how they can be styled for many occasions, including a day at the beach, to a night out on the town.

I added this stripe midi skirt to my wardrobe last summer, and it has definitely gotten its wear.  I found it at  Forever 21, and although it is no longer available, I found two similar options, here and here, which I'm actually liking more than my skirt!  I paired it with my eyelet, one shoulder top, then added a pop of red with statement earrings and a bold lip.  This look would make a perfect option for a 4th of July party or event, however, you can simply dress it down by switching out the heeled sandals for slides, or the lace top for a basic white tee or tank.  Since the lake is very casual, I plan on wearing this skirt with my bathing suit (because I'll be living in my swimsuit over the holiday), and I'll wear this eyelet top with my favorite denim cut-offs, and these white slides.  This top also comes in a poppy red color, which would be great for the holiday too, although sizes are limited.

Do you know what you'll be wearing for the 4th?  For more outfit inspiration, make sure to check out my last post here.
