Red, White & Blue

Today, I am so excited to be co-hosting with Saumya of Myraid Musings on her series called "Trend Trotting Thursday".  This week's theme is of course Red, White and Blue in honor of America's big birthday tomorrow.  

Red, white and blue is such a great classic combo for anytime of the year.  Personally, I don't like to wear things that are too blatantly themed looking.  

Be sure to stop by Saumya of Myraid Musings and check out her outfit details and awesome blog.  I am absolutely in love with her stars ensemble and adorable heels. I love how Saumya incorporated red subtly with her purse and sunglasses.  So chic and ready for the 4th!  Thank you so much Saumya for allowing me to co-host this fun series.

P.S.  I am also featured today on Basic Training Corporate Style's Oh So Sophisticated Spotlight.  Please stop by.

Happy 4th of July!








Alice's Do’s for Red, White & Blue for work:


Focus on classic style pieces (think a red skirt, classic white button down with navy pumps).  

If 3 colors are too much for you, use one of the colors as an accent piece  (i.e., a blue and white outfit with a red purse)



Alice's Don’ts for Red, White & Blue for work:


Don’t  deviate from your office dress code.  So if you normally don’t wear a tee shirt to the office, don’t wear one with an American Flag on it.  It maybe patriotic but it’s not appropriate for your office.









Saumya's Do's for red, white and blue:                                                                                                            
                                                                            
Incorporate this color mix in your anytime-of-the-year look. Shake things up.....there is no hard and fast day-specific rule to this 4th July color dressing.      
    
                                                                                                                   
Have fun with this color mix. Mix and match different textures, patterns, prints.... give this trend your own character.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
                          

Saumya's Don'ts for red, white and blue :                                                                                                                                                                                                         
Don't be disrespectful. I am empathetic of your enthusiasm for this color mix but no flag print please, especially not on your swimwear and undergarments ( please keep obscenity out the door ) . Respect the flag, it's your Country's National Pride..
