This is the first year in my lifetime that I’m not going to be home for the most patriotic holiday there is (at least to me)… the 4th of July. We’re going to be in Paris this year for the 4th. While I couldn’t be more excited to be traveling in Europe, it does make me a bit sad to miss a holiday I always celebrate with my family.

I began to realize this week that we’re going to have to make the most of Memorial Day this year in terms of getting our patriotism on. Even though that’s not until the end of the month, this holiday is one that always sneaks up on me.

Then, being the fashion junkie that I am, I started thinking about what I might wear. I finally found a pair of white jeans that I liked from Levi’s this weekend. I figured a little white on white outfit with some red, and blue accessories would be a fun nod to the flag without being overkill. I’m not one to emblazon stars and stripes all over the place (though I’d never judge anyone that does!) ;) And by the way, if you’re looking for tapered boyfriend jeans, these new Levi’s 501 CTs would be right up your alley. They’re the jeans your mom probably wore in the 80s/90s but have been updated with a modern silhouette. Be warned, they do run large so I’d recommend going down a size or 2. I’m going to be trying to shrink mine up a bit in some hot water.

If you’re ready to celebrate some red, white, and blue too, Macy’s is hosting a party, and you’re invited to join for all the in-store excitement and family fun! Macy’s is proud to partner with those who have served our country alongside Got Your 6 to celebrate the American heroes, our active servicemen and women, and our veterans.

For my fellow Seattlites, the Macy’s American Icons party is happening this weekend on May 16 at 2pm at Macy’s inside the Alderwood Mall. I’m going to be live tweeting from the fashion show that will be hosted by fellow (and much more famous) fashion blogger, Courtney Kerr. You may recognize her name from her show on E! a few years back, Courtney Loves Dallas. If you’re also a Pacific Northwesterner but a little south of me, try Portland’s Washington Square tomorrow. And for my friends in California, there’s a party for you in San Francisco or Costa Mesa also on Saturday!

They’ll be snacks and sips, a live DJ, a DIY station, and the opportunity to meet Courtney. Make sure to take an #AmericanSelfie in one of Macy’s patriotic photo opps in store too! If you’re a fellow Pacific Northwesterner, I hope to see you this Saturday, and if you’re not local, see if there’s an event happening near you below!

Do you dress differently for any of the patriotic holidays? I’d love to hear how you style the red, white, and blue!

    Wearing an all white look is sometimes quite a task, but pairing it with that statement necklace (which I love btw) and red shoes is an A+ for me. I’m Italian and when it comes to patriotic outifits I’m a bit in difficulty but I have a cute purse with the Italian flag’s colours on it that it’s awesome, and I style it with a total denim look.

      Haha, you crack me up! I can definitely see how your three-year-old might want to make “art” on an outfit like this! ;)

    I usually buy a 4th of July shirt for me and my daughter to wear, although I think I might make them this year.

    I love the outfit, but just one question: How in the world do you keep it white with Rigby around? Vern and Vinny would have anything light-colored I wear dirty in .5 seconds. I wore white pants once. ONCE. lol

      Haha! Rigby is actually pretty clean and it helps that we don’t have a backyard (condo life, haha) for him to dig in! Making 4th of July shirts for you and your daughter sounds so fun!

    I would love to spend the 4th of July in Paris. Although it’s just another day to them, I think it’d still be fun to be overseas. I love Paris! This outfit is so perfect! I love the pop of red. Definitely perfect for Memorial Day.

    I love White on white but I would never be able to pull it off because I would be a mess before I even left my house

      Haha! I can definitely understand that… I try to be very cautious with what I eat and drink while wearing white! ;)

    Jenn, this is so cute! The 4th of July is a huge holiday in my family and I travel back home to celebrate with them every year. I usually do red shorts with white sandals, white top and a blue bauble necklace. It’s kind of my go-to outfit because it’s theme without being over-the-top (like the rest of my family who basically wears the flag).

    The forth of July is a pretty big deal for me too! And one of my favorite parts is coming up with the outfits (yes there are more than one, one for out on the lake, one for the day/watching fireworks, and one for the party)!

    Now I kinda wish I could attend this! The event is coming to Memphis which would be close, but I am traveling to another place in Arkansas early the next morning for more graduation stuff. This outfit is adorable. I love the pop of color that the red shoes provide agains the white outfit!
