Prepping for my first 4th of July in DC!

If you live in DC, you know how big of a deal the 4th of July is here. Or at least you’ve HEARD about how big a deal it is…but maybe you haven’t experienced it yet.
This year will be my first Independence Day in the nation’s capital – and I could not be more excited! We have a huge party every year for the 4th of July at work and apparently it is the absolute best time. We’re right on Capitol Hill so the party is hosted on the roof – with a 360 view of the city & fireworks in every direction!
 Since I’ll technically be at work, I won’t want to be too flashy – but I also have a lot more leeway than I would on a regular work day. I’m thinking about pairing a simple red dress (like the one pictured below) with a white heel (also below) and maybe some blue accessories?
If you won’t be at work – and instead enjoying the fireworks in a more laid-back atmosphere, I highly recommend the American flag print shorts and/or sequined, white, peplum top!
4th of July
A couple of the items I’m particularly obsessed with are:
1. Simple red tank top from H&M – it just looks like it would drape so well!
2. Blue Bow from Etsy- great way to contain and also style my crazy & long waves!
3. White Heels from Rock&Republic – so classy & chic!
And, of course, don’t forget my favorite accessory – red lipstick!
What will you be wearing to the fireworks?
