Red + White + Blue

Hey Everyone!

Happy May 3rd to You!
 I have a confession to make.  

In the summer months, the Slaughters don't wear a lot of clothes...we pretty much are wearing swimsuits 90% of the time.  Nordstrom reached out to me recently to talk summer clothes {I jumped at the chance...you guys know how I feel about their quality and customer service...the BEST around!} but I didn't know what type of summer clothes I wanted to feature.  I try my best to keep this spot 100% genuine and then it hit me.  All summer long, we don't wear a ton of clothes, but we do always sport some RED, WHITE, and BLUE!  

If you're like me, throughout the summer-for get-togethers, holidays, or special occasions, you too might need some RED, WHITE, and BLUE!

 And mamas, grandmas, aunts, daughters, and friends...I think I found some super cute RED, WHITE, and BLUE for your 2018 summer.

Like I mentioned before, the customer service at Nordstrom is the absolute BEST around.  With free shipping and free returns, Nordstrom makes shopping with littles from home so easy.  I scoured the website AND the store for the cutest RED, WHITE, and BLUE pieces I could find.


Okay, first up is this super cute red peplum tank paired with my favorite white jeans {this is the other pair I own-love them both.  The only reason I didn't show you both pairs is because one was dirty and you know how I feel about laundry}, sandals {mine are sold out, but these are similar}, and tassel earrings.

By the way, thank you for all the sweet comments about my hair.  Yes, I cut off quite a bit just a couple weeks ago.  When my hair gets too long, it gets so thin at the bottom.  I thought it was perfect timing with summer right around the corner.  :)

You guys.  I have a confession....I love a jumpsuit.  I think they're so stinkin' cute, but a ton of them are just too short for me since I'm long-waisted.  This one, however, WORKS!  The floral is a red, pink, orange combo and there's a small part of your back showing but my strapless bra strap was covered completely.  If you're a jumpsuit fan, check this one out.  And you should take a peek at these wedges too.

Confession #2...I also LOVE a ruffle.  This top is cute, flirty, and just plain fun!  The red and white combo makes it perfect for any summer party!  I paired it with these jeans and wedges.

A more close-up look of the top.  ;)

Not only do I love a red and white ruffle top, I also love a navy one.  This brand also makes this same top in white, black, and pink.  It's a fun take on a regular ole' tank or tee-shirt, for sure.  This top is one I'll always tuck in...if I wear it out, it's on the verge of being too short.  {But I'm long-waisted.}

Close up :)

This top isn't quite red.  The actual color is called, "poppy".  I think it totally works though.  I paired mine with this super inexpensive cutoff pair of white shorts and a leopard belt.

Let's pause and talk shorts for a minute...I feel like every summer I have issues with shorts.  I 100% agree the pair shown above is short.  I ordered another pair to highlight but they looked too long.  I want to keep it real over here, so yes, they're short.  I wouldn't be wearing these to church, by any means.  I know my audience and this would make an appearance at a backyard barbeque or date night.  I actually ordered this exact pair last summer.  They have a little cuff that's been stitched and I cut it to make them just a tad longer.  I wore them all summer long and was in need of a new pair.

This peplum tee could be dressed up or dressed down depending on your event.

And this grey tank could as well.  {Grey is sold out, but it's available in white.}

You guys, I wasn't sure about this dress, but I LOVE it!  This one could be worn to church, dressed down with sandals, or dressed up for a fancier night out.  The possibilities are pretty endless with this dress.  It is more of a "shift" dress so it's not form fitting at all in the mid-section.  Some of you might like that and others might not.  EDITED:-The dress is sold out,but it does come in a halter top option.  I'll keep watching to see if it comes back in stock!

Blue and white maxi for the win!  The bottom of this is pretty see-through, but the top part {where all the girl parts are} have an extra layer.

Another shift dress option WITH pockets!  ;)  You guys know how I feel about those.

And for short-waisted girls, I highly recommend this ruffle peplum.  Because I'm long waisted, I thought it looked just a tad too short on me, but this was super cute other than that.  It zipped in the back and was a nice, thick material.  I wanted to include it-because it'd be perfect for more petite girls.

Okay, what do you guys think?  Did you see any RED + WHITE + BLUE you love?!  I hope you're a little inspired.  Thanks so much for reading!

And a big thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

OMG I love them ALL!!! My favorite is of you in the poppy top and white shorts. I would NOT look amazing in those shorts but they look like they were made for your legs! And I am THIS CLOSE to cutting my hair too. Mine gets super thin at the ends too. Building up my courage. ;)
