Getting Ready for the Fourth of July

I know that the poppy mural in back of me might not necessarily scream "the Fourth of July" but the red, white and blue colors it utilizes are somewhat evocative of the holiday. (Just imagine the poppies as fireworks bursting in the sky!) This eyelet navy dress I'm wearing, along with all of the red accents, is definitely very appropriate for Independence Day! I just recently purchased this dress, which was part of my most recent "haul" from the J. Crew Factory, and I thought it would be perfect for the upcoming holiday, plus it was a great deal! I love that it's eyelet and has a cute tie detail as well!

This is definitely a cute dress to wear all summer long but also for a Fourth of July BBQ or get together! I'm actually not yet sure what our plans will be to celebrate Independence Day, but some burgers and corn on the cob will likely be involved! We usually stay in on the night of the Fourth because of our dog, William. He's not really frightened of fireworks (he just goes outside and barks at them!) but we don't want him to develop a phobia of them if we aren't around and he's all alone. So that means I'll probably be dressed much more casually on the evening of the Fourth but this is a great dress to get the party started a little early!
