Happy Monday, friends and welcome back; I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It’s getting pretty steamy down here in the south, I definitely see a lot of pool days in my future! With warmer weather in tow, it’s time for some backyard BBQs and fun patriotic apparel. I don’t know if it’s just me, but my second favorite holiday is the 4th of July. Fun fact, I was supposed to born on July 4th and my name was going to be Freedom Leigh…crazy, right?! Anyways, I’m always up for a fun red, white and blue moment and wanted to share some of my favorites with you all!
As I mentioned in my last post, I recently joined the liketoknow.it team (yaaasssssss) and would love it if you’d follow me over there! All of the outfits I’m sharing today plus some app-exclusive content are already linked for your convenience! Happy shopping, friends; I appreciate you being here!

SHIRT / If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve already seen this shirt! I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t pass up a slouchy USA tee. I picked this up at Target a couple of weeks ago and I’m so glad that I did; I sized up to a L to ensure that it wasn’t too cropped and I absolutely love it. It’s soft and incredibly thin (without being see-through) which will be great for this southern summer heat! I think this is perfect styled with shorts, jeans or even as a swimsuit cover-up! If you like less of an oversized fit stick with your true size!
SHORTS / Denim shorts are an absolute must for summer, and these boyfriend cutoffs from Abercrombie are probably my favorite shorts of all time. I love the relaxed fit in the leg and find that though they’re technically a mid-rise, they’re come high enough for my liking. As for the fit, I size down 1 in Abercrombie’s boyfriend style with no issue; I still have plenty of room in the legs, butt and waist. They come in a few different washes and are worth a shot if you’re looking for something that provides a little more comfort and length in the leg and booty area! NOTE: Because these are selling fast, I have also linked the Curve Love version of these shorts (which I also have and love) above.
SHOES / Y’all already know, my shoes of life. I’ve talked about these a ton on the blog so I’ll keep it brief. I think these are ultra flattering on everyone and I legitimately can’t live without them (I’ve had 3 pair). They come in a variety of color combinations, though I prefer the classic white, and fit TTS. If you have a wider foot, I would size up!
SWEATSHIRT / I absolutely love these basic USA sweatshirts from Pink Lily! They’re comfortable, stylish and perfect for all year round. They fit TTS, though I always size up for a super slouchy fit; for reference, I could have easily ordered a M and still had plenty of room. They come in 4 different colors (the blue is shown below) and are one of my favorite purchases from Pink Lily to date! NOTE: Shorts and shoes are the same as photos above.
SWEATSHIRT / This is the same sweatshirt as the one I’m wearing above just in the navy color and I absolutely love it. Again, they fit TTS with a slightly oversized fit so order based on your style preference!
USA SLIDES / How cute are these for the pool, the lake or the beach?! I love a good pair of slides and snagged these a couple of weeks ago from Old Navy. They are just under $20 dollars (though they are currently 30% off – yippie) and are the perfect shoe to just throw on and go. They come in combination/unisex sizing (6/7, 8/9, etc.) so keep that in mind when ordering; I’m generally a 7.5 but sized down to the 6/7 and I have had no issues. They aren’t snug by any means but also aren’t falling off of my feet! A great summer staple for sure!
USA BABE TEE / Another Pink Lily find! I’m such a sucker for a fun graphic tee and this reminds me of the font that I used for my Bride/Babes t-shirts last year for my bachelorette party (take me back…that was such a fun time). These do run TTS, so if you like them super slouchy, I would size up!
CROSS SLIDES / Target strikes again! These are affordable, trendy and extremely comfortable! They come in 2 color patterns and are well worth their $15 price tag! Keep in mind that they don’t come in 1/2 sizes, so if you’re generally a 7.5 (or any 1/2 size), I would size up.
USA HAT / Man, I love a good baseball hat in the spring and summer; they’re stylish and protect you from the sun…what could be better?! It has an adjustable strap in the back so it should work for most people and the diluted acid wash pairs perfectly with just about anything! If you’re not a fan of baseball caps, I still recommend grabbing a hat for the summer, especially if you plan on spending a lot of time outside; it’s so important that we are protecting our skin from the sun!
USA CROP / This is the same cropped tee pictured above; it’s from Target and perfect for summer! 10/10 would recommend. 🙂
RED, WHITE & BRUNETTE TEE / Another cute graphic tee from Pink Lily. This fits the same as the one shown above and is perfect for your upcoming pool day!
I hope you all enjoyed this quick post highlighting some of my favorite patriotic finds over the last couple of weeks. I’m sure as the summer progresses I will add more to my collection (lol) because clearly I have a problem, but for now this is where we are! I hope you all are having a great start to your week; talk to you soon!
