June 2nd, Red, White and Blue

 I used to avoid wearing the colors red, white and blue together for fear of looking too patriotic.

Silly, I know.

Especially since these colors are meant to be together. They are so complimentary, so classic and so perfect!

Today’s outfit is based around my red jeans.

Originally, I paired them with this beige/ gray t shirt with the ruffle detail down the middle and my denim jacket. Although I liked this look at first- looking at the pictures, it seems a little blah. And I always struggle with the half tuck- it never looks right on me!

I then decided to pair it with my blue and white checked shirt- layered over a white tank- and then rolled the sleeves up a bit.

It’s a more stylish look- and I love the way the dark blue in the checks is complimented by the dark wash on the jacket.

I like the sleeves rolled up- a much ‘cooler’ look!

Jeans: Marshalls, Shirt: Land’s End Canvas, Jacket: Gap, Shoes: Nordstrom
