Shop the look:
Lace top: Loft (exact, 3/4 sleeve version)
Cropped pants: J. Crew Factory (exact, lots of colors and on sale!!)
Strappy heels: Loft circa 2009 (similar, super cute)
So in an effort to be patriotic for the 4th, I put together this outfit to wear to the office. I LOVE the blue cropped pants I got as part of my May clothing budget (worn here and here). I paired it with this cream lace top and it really makes the shoes and pants pop! (I just recently added my first red article of clothing to my wardrobe so instead of red shoes, you get pink! Sidenote: I totally wore these pink shoes under my dress at my wedding- love my pops of color!)
Tomorrow, I look forward to starting off the day with a “Run for Freedom 5k” in the morning, then hosting a get together at our house with my parents and relatives. Nothing says the 4th like a cookout, camp fire and hopefully some fireworks! Happy 4th to everyone!
Do you dress for the holidays?

I really want to get a lace top, it’s about time, right? Love these cobalt blue pants!
I had wanted the 3/4 sleeve version but it sold out FAST! I was so glad to see Loft made a short sleeve one! Love that top!
So cute, Valerie! I love your blue pants – they’re really fun but still so versatile! I really like how they look with your lace top. It sounds like you have a great 4th of July planned :) Good luck on your 5K!!
Thanks Brynn! Yes, I totally agree! And I will need all the luck I can get– I desperately want to sleep in, but it will be worth it knowing I’ve burned those calories so I can indulge later, right?!

I love this!!! I’m wearing a blue seersucker dress tomorrow and reddish orange sandals. Oh yes, I always dress up for holidays!
Oh your outfit sounds adorable! Be sure to take a photo of your patriotic outfit- I wanna see!
Cute outfit! Love these pants! Good luck on your run!

I need a new lace top! I think I’ll check out that one from LOFT!
I love this top! I’d check it out quick–I was on the hunt for the 3/4 sleeve version originally and it sold out quick! Very popular apparently!
You look so adorable! I love this outfit!
You’re so sweet- thanks Rachel! I love that top especially- such a blank canvas to work with!
