Not only is this my 4th of July outfit, this is one of my fave outfits. I wear this as often as I can. Since the shirt is linen, it’s one of those outfits I couln’t just grab from the closet since the shirt gets rumpled pretty quickly, but I’ve found a solution. I bought a steamer. And it was only $20 and works amazingly well. No more dry cleaner, which will not only make me happy, since I always forget my clothes are there – it will make my mom deliriously happy. And did I mention the steamer was only $20. I may not even have to iron any more.

But back to this outfit – the reason I love it? It’s easy, comfortable and goes anywhere, even if it’s not the 4th of July. Which it is. Which is why my nails are red. And how about that nail color? And the name, which of course is why I pick colors. If only I was at a clambake — which I’ve never been to but sounds almost as fun as s shrimp boil on a beach, which is always a blast and might be the southern version of a clambake?

Happy 4th to you – what are you doing to celebrate? and if you’ve been to a clambake, let me know what I’m missing!

    Very cute outfit, I can see why it’s a favorite! That necklace looks like there is no way it could be from f21, so jealous!

    Smart girl! I’ve tried steamers in the past, and never got the results I wanted. I may reexamine my ideas about them … maybe if I take the time to learn how it’s done!
    Old dogs, new tricks … thank you!

    I may actually have to do a post about this steamer… my mom said the same thing :)

  • PopCosmo

    Thank you! I know, I couldn’t believe we found it there either and it ways like 10 pounds. It was a real find!!

  • Jan Graham-McMillen

    I’d read it with interest!

  • PopCosmo

    I think we’ll put it on the list!

    Great outfit! And can I just say, buying a steamer changed my life! I have not picked up an iron in about 6 years as a result. It’s the best.

    That linen top is so easy, breezy! And white jeans are pure perfection. Love the chunky chain necklace.

  • Jen West

    Love the chain necklace and the top! Linen is fabulous. I have never been to a clambake, and not sure I would make one if invited. But I have been to tons of shirmp boils here in Louisiana!

  • Kristin Swenson

    Love the classic gold accessories!

    I love your Jack Rogers sandals! I have a hot pink pair, and want to expand my collection, but always get overwhelmed when I see all opt the colour choices! And that oatmeal linen and white is a great combo that I probably wouldn’t have thought of, so thanks for the inspiration.
