Hello my friends, summer is in full swing and the 4th of July is in a couple of days. Many of you will be enjoying BBQs, spending time at the beach or enjoying your summer vacations. These patriotic looks I have put together come in a variety of sizes and many in up to size 4X so us curvy girls can definitely wear them all year as the key is in the mixing and the matching of prints and the quintessential red, white, and blue colors we love. You can easily take your outfits to the next level with accessories like cute novelty bags, shoes, and cardigans to rock your 4th of July style all year long.
I love nautical style and really anything nautical themed because it is so classic. These four outfits I have in my opening photo are very patriotic with a nautical twist and they are so easy to wear. Nautical print dresses are so fun during the summer months and just image wearing one of these in The Hamptons, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Los Angeles, or San Francisco, wow, you will stand out with so much style!! You can take elements from each look and wear them all year.

I wanted to share some pics with you all from my weekend in wine country. We are so fortunate to live in beautiful wine country California and have really great weather pretty much all year. This past weekend was so lovely, sunny, and cool with a little wind. Hubby and I headed to the quaint towns of Windsor and Healdsburgabout 70 miles North of San Francisco.
I had a completely different outfit planned for this excursion but it didn’t work out well for my curves…. we will save that story for another time and another curvy blog post. I had seen this polka dot top in a magazine and being the lover of polka dots that I am, I had to have it. I was so happy to see the blouse come in plus size as it would need to fit my curves and it is a wrap top so I knew it would fit my bust and I was not disappointed when it arrived. The blouse had such a luxurious feel to it and it was made really well. Usually plus size curvy clothing from department stores are not all that well made and do not usually have a shape so I was pleasantly surprised what fast fashion from Macy’s delivered. Details here for Polka dot blouse.
Here are some of my favorite outfits that can go well for the 4th of July. I wear a lot of Red, White, and Blue through the year and I know a lot of you do too so, why not mix and match what you already have for that perfectly Pinup and retro patriotic outfit for Independence Day.
In my blog post opening picture I styled a really fun outfit for the 4th of July!! The skirt is from Unique Vintage and it is the 1950s High Waist Stars & Stripes Flag Swing Skirt. This skirt is really a show-stopper!! I paired it with my white Doris top from Pinup Girl Clothing and dded a pop of red with my necklace from Splendette. I really love this look and will be wearing on the 4th!!
This last group for my 4th of July outfit round up again features all red, white, and blue themed goodies. For some of you it is chilly this time of year so this nautical inspired coat from Collectif Clothing is terrific when paired with a red top. A fun outfit is this out-of-the-world dress from Pigtails and Pirates featuring a space theme and the pops of color work perfectly for the 4ht of July. Again, polka dots by Hellbunny in white/blue and one of my faves here is this nautical inspired patriotic pinup picture that is all sorts of red, white, blue, with my cherry red top and nautical skirt from Retrospec’d.
There you have it, my 4th of July outfit round up. I’d love to hear from you all and see what you are wearing this 4th of July so send me a note or tag me on social media – @crazy4me
