Last-Minute 4th of July Looks

Fourth of July is always one of my favorite holidays of the year. It’s like Christmas without pressure. But every year, it sort of sneaks up on me and I find myself scrambling at the last minute to come up with something to wear or a fun menu of things to serve. So this week, I’m going to share some ideas that I hope will help you with your plans…starting with what you’re going to wear.

As always, I’m a dress girl. They’re just easy, flattering, and look to be perfectly weather appropriate with the current forecast for next week in Chicago (sunny and low 80s…everything to like). Here’s a roundup of casual 4th of July looks at a variety of different price points. All of the links are posted below.
