Week O’Nautical: Stars and Stripes

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July… on a Wednesday… For the lucky ones off today, yay! For the unlucky ones working today, boo! But even for a Wednesday I had a festive BBQ, fireworks, and wore my stars and stripes!

For my 4th fit I updated my ‘merica shorts with this year’s version from Target.  Have to have stripes with those stars, so add in this one shoulder bodysuit from mark.

My navy and white striped Kate Spade hobo was a comeup my mom found at an auction!  It’s absolutely perfect for this week, good job mom!

Happy 4th Of July with Stars and Sparkles!

Happy 4th of July!  I hope you’re celebrating our nation’s independence with some stars and stripes and sparkles!  I definitely themed out my work week in red white and blue with Week O’Nautical and now that my favorite summer day is finally here I’ll be doing the same, only more casually and with more sparkles (fireworks and sparklers, duh!)

One of my favorite outfit formulas is wearing a tee with a pencil skirt… you get the the laid back California cool with preppy east coast style all in one fun look!  Plus it works really well for my laid back office.  When it comes to 4th of July tee’s you know which one immediately comes to mind, the Old Navy $5 flag tee (which were actually $4!)  However, I stepped it up a notch at Old Navy and got this burnout star muscle tee for $6!  Not nearly as cheesy and actually super cool for the 4th and beyond.  So cool I might of picked it up in white too and my 5-per-customer $1 rubber flip flops (in red, white, blue, mint and gold!)

Pair the tee and pencil skirt formula with some sparkle and be ready for 4th of July fun!  Sequin clutch is from Julep… yes that Julep I keep boasting about has more than just polish!  Add more sparkle with my bracelet (gifted, F21), red earrings (Avon) and complete with grey peep toe pumps (Shoedazzle).

Easy summer beauty is crucial for hot July fun so I was inspired by Shaanxo’s tutorial and recreated the look with mark. On The Edge Liquid Liner in Blue Chrome over a shimmering nude shadows from the mark. Island Eyes Pallet and finished with lots of voluminous mascara with Avon Aero Volume Mascara and red lips with mark. Lipclick in ChaCha.  Shop all the products used at my eBoutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

I hope you have a little fun and sparkles today be it at a BBQ, pool party, beach day, or just watching the Dead White and Blue marathon on AMC!  What ever it is, be sure to follow it up with some fireworks and sparklers!
