The BBQ Mama – White, Blue And Red !!

July 4th weekend is less than a week away. I’m sure people already know what their plans look like for this long weekend.

Whether you are going out to watch fireworks at night or attending / throwing a barbecue, or celebrating a special milestone in the family ( like us), your July 4th outfit should not take a backseat. You can still dress cute, chic and look your best.

I’m super excited about this article. July 4th is a special occasion in our family. All this week, I will be busy in the preparations to celebrate accordingly. Secondly, this is the 150th article on my website. Now that calls for a celebration too.  You see I miss no chance to celebrate small things in life 🙂



Add a pop of Red / Blue/ White in your outfit. White Pants/shorts/capris ; Blue tops / bottoms or a blue bag – all qualify as July 4rth Outfits 🙂


Do you want to show your patriotic spirits by doing it all >>>   White + Blue + Red ?

Or maybe you are not literally into it but still thinking of ways to work with either one of the colors.

Before you decide on your outfit , keep these in mind:


Comfortable yet chic – you will be eating and moving a lot. So wearing clothes which are too tight are going to bring a lot of discomfort towards the end of the party.

Casual – Semi formal ( Never Formal ) – BBQ’s are usually a casual affair unless specified. Keep it casual.

Avoid pencil heels  if you are not comfortable because you will be moving around a lot ( for a good 3-4 hours ).

If you think wearing the patriotic colors will be a bit too much, then think of wearing them as accessories – shoes, bag, jewelry, nails. Red lips/ nails will enhance the look of  your  white or blue outfit.



Old Navy, Marshals , TJ Maxx, Macy’s have endless options for dresses and maxi skirts.


And remember, if nothing else works for you, denims are always there to your rescue.

Read here on how to wear your denims in summer and rock the look.
