Fourth of July Outfit Idea :: Red, White & Blue

Who is excited for the Fourth of July?! Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays, so get ready for a few different red, white and blue looks coming up! I’ll be working on this Fourth of July but that doesn’t mean I won’t be able to enjoy it. Being a first in my family to be born in America, I feel so fortunate to call this incredible country hone.

Some of you may remember this skirt as part of a two-piece set I posted earlier. As I’ve said before, I love two piece sets because you can really mix and match the pieces later on. I’m restyling this fun polka dot wrap skirt for this Fourth of July outfit idea. One reason I love this skirt so much is what a statement piece it is. I feel like once I put it on, I feel chic. I’m wearing size XS and the fit is perfect. I really love the sash and bow, which adds a feminine touch.  Read more…

The Swimsuit You Need :: White High-Waisted Bikini

I’m a big fan of color, which is why this blog is called Color & Chic. However, every once in a while I do love neutrals, especially white. I have a big soft spot for a good white bikini, particularly a white high-waisted bikini. The pom poms on this bikini really add a fun touch but aren’t too much to where this bikini will be out of style soon. This is the swimsuit you need this summer because it’s a classic with a twist. The triangle top is flattering, even for smaller busts. While the high-waisted bikini is great for lengthening the legs and slimming you down. I’m wearing an XS in both the top and bottoms. The top fits well and would certainly still work for those who are more endowed than me. The bottoms are a perfect fit, too! This high-waisted bikini definitely fits true to size. Read more…

Summer Outfit Idea :: Easy Wide-Leg Floral Jumpsuit

As a petite woman, I love when clothing pieces make me look taller. This purple floral jumpsuit elongates an incredible amount. Plus, it’s such a statement piece. At times, it actually looks like a maxi dress because of how wide and flowy the legs on this floral jumpsuit are. I’m not going to lie, the legs are extremely wide. However, the smocked top really balances it out. This is such a flattering jumpsuit and I couldn’t recommend it more for summer. The tie straps are adjustable to what you want, which is really nice. Also, the pants have pockets at the hip! Huge win, ha! If you are petite, be warned you may need to get this hemmed. However, I promise you this floral jumpsuit is worth it. I absolutely love the purple and how the white really pops off of it. This jumpsuit also comes in black and red, too. Read more…

Summer’s Arrival :: Strapless Gingham Dress & Tassel Earrings

Summer doesn’t officially arrive for a few weeks, but I am already in my summer mode. Is it really a weekend in Coastal Virginia if you don’t visit the beach? If I go to the beach, I’m a fan of simple and effortless dresses doubling as cover-ups. This red strapless gingham dress is a great piece for summer because it’s so versatile. There are cute buttons down the front, which make it easy for this dress to go on and off. I will add, this dress can be short if you are not petite. I’m 5’3 and as you can see this hits mid thigh. I wouldn’t recommend this for ladies who are taller than 5’6. However, for someone who is vertically challenged like me, this red gingham dress is just perfect and no alterations are needed. I really like how this dress is tiered since it breaks up the gingham print, which can get monotonous.  Read more…

Summer Style :: Polka Dot Two-Piece Set

Hello, Everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely Memorial Day Weekend. While you are all enjoying the sun, tasty food on the grill and time with loved ones, please remember the true reason for this holiday. Memorial Day is to remember all the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the armed forces. It’s to remember freedom isn’t free. We are able to enjoy time at the lake or the beach today because someone else made sacrifices for us. I love holidays where we can wear patriotic colors and be proud to be American. Finding Americana pieces are always super fun for me. You all may know I have some pieces of patriotic clothing I adore, including my All-American Girl tank.  Read more…
