Yay!! The long weekend is almost here! I shared some of these photos over on the Delightful Dozen blog today, but wanted to share here as well. Are you excited for the 4th of July? I love the 4th. I love that it instantly makes it feel like summer. We are headed to Cape Cod for a Beach BBQ! I seriously can’t wait!

When I got this dress in the mail, I knew it would be perfect for a 4th of July post. I love to play the part for holidays. Dressing up in the matching color scheme. Never tacky though, just subtle. I loved pairing this red belt and thrifted hat with the dress. It really pulled it all together.
What are you plans for the 4th of July? Going any where fun?
Happy long weekend guys!!
Outfit Details:
Vintage Dress: Delightful Dozen (via Bleubird Vintage)

Check out how James styled her dress!

  1. That dress is amazing!! in so many ways.

    I have a lot of great outfits planned over the weekend. Most of my wardrobe is red, white, and blue. But I’m most excited to wear my red highwaisted shorts.

  2. I LOVE today’s look and I am OBSESSED with the striped dress with petie pan collar in Paris………..O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D!!! 🙂 -e

  3. weird…i just realized the other comment was from erin too! :o..

  4. You look too cute. It is like the sexier Pollyanna. I hope you enjoy Cape Cod!

  5. wow! those pleats are fantastic, what a fun little dress. have a great 4th!

  6. You look so cute and vintage. Seriously, this is like an outfit that Anne Shirley would wear to a picnic to eat ice cream and drink lemonade. You better start practicing for a tthree-legged race. Oh, and I totally agree, dressing up in red, white, and blue for the 4th is lots of fun, and it is even more fun to find a subtle way to do it.

  7. Oh my, the side pleating on this dress is just divine…! Love it with those wedges and the hat. Certainly summer chic.

    I normally go with a subdued patriotic color theme for the 4th, but I always wear my flag Cons. Can’t justify have them taking up room in my closet if I don’t wear them at least once a year!

  8. Wow, this is just gorgeous. I love your dress and how you styled it with the red belt, it adds a really nice pop of color. 🙂

  9. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you pull off outfits that I could NEVER! And yet they look UHHHMazing on you!
    SO. CUTE.

    You look so beautiful! I absolutely love that pleated skirt!

  18. This is SO Madeline in the best of ways! 🙂

  19. Great colour scheme! It would be fun to add a ribon to the hat too. My father’s friend has a house on Cape Cod, I hope to visit someday as it sounds like a beautiful place. I hope you have nice weather!

  20. I love that you added some curly hair and red lipstick to this outfit… it’s really adorable!


  21. your beautiful!

  22. Your dress is adorable, you look so lovely and summer-y! I’m in Australia so no celebrations here, but it looks like a lot of fun from all the blogs I’ve been reading! x

  23. I love this outfit! I think the skinny red belt just pulls everything together so well. And I wish I could pull off a hat like that 🙂 I have to say that the first picture in this post is incredible – like something straight out of a magazine, or better even.
    Hope you had a great long week-end!
