5 Ways to Add Patriotic Flair to Any Outfit

1. Hair accessories are a great way to add color and fun to your look. My favorite statement piece is a headband! They come in so many styles and colors and are perfect to hold your hair back on a hot summer day. So I'm absolutely psyched about the awesome headband I'm wearing this weekend. I bought it from the LaLa Nala Etsy shop and I'm so in love with it! By the way, did I mention that it also lights up at night!? How fun!

2. It's summertime which means sunny skies and outdoor BBQs, so awesome sunglasses are a must. Check out this pair of American Flag sunglasses that I found at Spencers! If you don't like wearing a patriotic pattern, pick up a solid pair in red, white or blue. These are just enough to bring your whole outfit together.

3. Even though the weather's hot, don't discount a great scarf! There are so many scarves made out of lightweight material that look and feel perfect with a tank top. Find one that fits the theme and you're good to go!

5. Earlier this year, I did a post on Memorial Day makeup that is totally easy and festive. All I did was add some blue colored mascara and a touch of red lipstick to my usual makeup routine! Easy and fun is definitely the way to go with your holiday makeup. Plus, how often can you rock blue mascara and look fabulous?!
