For the Fourth of July, I went with a subtle take on the patriotic color scheme: Red (lipstick), white and blue (stripes). We had a relatively laid back day, and headed downtown in the evening hoping to see the fireworks.
The rain ended up foiling our original plans, but we still had a great night together. There is something magical about how empty the streets of NYC are on a holiday weekend.
The striped, voluminous dress was definitely the statement piece, but I wanted to keep my accessories fun and festive too. I reached for my cheerful yellow bumblebee clutch, and added my glitter wedding flats for a little sparkle on my feet.
Red lipstick: Palladio in Panne
