Summer Romance: 4th of July Style

Summer Romance: 4th of July Style

Hey ITC Readers!


I can’t believe the Style Collective Summer Style Challenge is coming to an end already! I have had such a great time this week connecting with my SC sisters and seeing everyone’s posts with these amazing prompts. I can’t think of a better way to finish the week than celebrating in patriotic style with 4th of July looks!


I snagged this amazing skort romper (I know-what?) at Zara when visiting New York earlier this month. The graphic navy and white stripes grabbed my eyes, then I realized it was a romper not a dress! Its like business in the front, party in the back. Normally this would be a little short for me, but I let it slide since its actually shorts and can’t ride up.

I paired this with a bright red clutch, red pedicure, and red lip to complete the 4th of July theme.

How fun are the subtle cut-outs?

So what do you think? Are you willing to give the Skort thing a try? Or does it feel like Elementary School in the 90’s?



Happy 4th of July everyone! Hope you have a wonderful and safe long weekend! I’m running a 10K on the 4th, and I’ll be sure to update you all on how it goes!

    Love the subtle cutouts!! And I love how you paired it with the red purse for the weekend’s picnics. You can definitely wear it many times this summer by just changing up the accessories. GREAT buy!!
