Just 7 Days Until the 4th of July!
July 4th. Historically known as the day the Declaration of Independence was adopted, and typically celebrated with fireworks, parades, baseball games, and BBQs! However, its ALSO a day that we get to throw on our red, white, and blue and not feel out of place while walking downtown!
And of course…You don’t know what to wear! And of course…I have outfit ideas for you, just like every other holiday that passes us by. But really, how do you not know how to dress nautical?! I’ll let it slide.
For us in Santa Barbara, 4th of July tends to have some left-over June Gloom (crossing my fingers I didn’t just jinx us) in the morning and then it gets really hot mid-day! Then, it starts getting chilly during the time we all start heading to the beach to watch the fireworks. So, finding your perfect outfit is tough because you are most likely going to experience multiple weather types. BUT, we should all know by now that Santa Barbara is all about layering. Here are some great 4th of July ideas that include layering:
