The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays – summer is in full swing, and in my book there are few things better than celebrating outdoors (preferably near a beach!) with friends and family in gorgeous weather. Normally we go to our beach house in Rhode Island for the 4th, but this year I am on city lockdown as it is just a few days before Baby #3 is due to arrive (end of this week – I still can’t believe it)! I was looking back at some pics from this weekend last year and decided to do a quick round-up of my favorite go-to patriotic pieces. A couple years ago my ever-stylish sister-in-law, Meredith, co-founded the clothing line La Ligne, a brand dedicated to the art of the stripe. I wear La Ligne pieces constantly for both work and play and love how they always make me feel put together, even when I’m super casual. I wear their stuff all year-round (their cashmere sweaters are AMAZING – such great quality and styles), but they have a great selection of red, white and blue tops and dresses that make them an especially perfect addition to any 4th of July wardrobe.

The Charlotte Tee is a newer addition to the line and I love the relaxed vibe.
Last summer I frequently paired this Le Garcon Tee with cutoffs and jeans. I can’t wait until these all fit me again post-baby as they are my favorite summer staples when I’m not in a flowy dress.
If your Independence Day plans include parties where something a little dressier is required, they really nailed the concept of the Little White Dress, making it anything but basic. I especially love the Le Frange dress (in white), the Dress D’Ete, and this Stars and Stripes Tie Dress ( short wrap dress version here).
For cooler nights by the sea I always have a La Ligne sweater to throw on.
For a heavier knit, the Marin Sweater can’t be beat (I have it in cream with navy stripes but love all their color combos).
And for something a little lighter the AAA Lean Lines Sweater is perfect to throw on (I have this one in a few colors too and wear them constantly as well – at least, I do when I’m not 9 months pregnant stuck in the sweltering city). 🙂
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
