July 4th Outfit #1 and #2

I rock it like J.Lo and Beyonce or a Nigerian bride during her wedding. The wardrobe changes, that is. I normally don't even bother to change clothes except for into jeans after work, but this Independence Day requires a special nod. Here is outfit #1 from Sunday. Worn to church and shorter than I remembered, so there was some strategic scarf placement going on.

J.Crew Starfish earrings (I'm on a roll!)
Old Navy cropped denim jacket from years ago
Ann Taylor Loft (pre-LOFT days) white dress

(BTW, I am very proud of myself because I could not fit into this dress a few months ago. Thank you, Couch to 5K and crazy teachers of Zumba. I salute you. I can now squeeze my body (albeit uncomfortably) into a size 4.)

The above outfit was inspired by Marisa from According to Moi, with a punch of red with the shoes. I had forgotten about this white dress in my closet (shocking, I know) but realized after she posted that I hadn't worn this in a while and it would be perfect for this weekend. Those red sandals got mad compliments all day long from multiple people. Well played, Modcloth. Well played.

Outfit #2 was the Polyvore from earlier in the week. I was mostly covered up with an apron though, since we were grilling with friends. As plain as the outfit was, I think the apron made it so much better. Sort of 60's housewife, right? Can't wait for Mad Men to start...

And for posterity, the shoes!
