Happy July! I love it when a new month starts on Monday. That’s an especially good thing this month because that means that July 4th falls on a Thursday making it a four-day weekend for most of us. Hooray. It’s no surprise that I’ve got red-white-and-blue on my mind this week. The color combination is classic (no matter what month it is) and just looks so good together. Since I don’t usually wear red (it just. does. not. work on me), I usually opt for a primarily white  (like this dress) or blue look  and then add in some red with a bag or a fun pair of earrings. (I’m really wishing I had gotten my hands on a pair of these adorable Mother jeans before my size disappeared. They’re perfect.) If there’s one week to embrace the color red, it’s definitely this one.
