Red, White & Blue on a Budget

Share It:




 Earrings: Made in Mechanicsville // Top: Old Navy // Jeans: Old Navy // Purse:  Longchamp // Shoes: Sam Edelman (similar)  // Sunnies: Cole Haan // Scarf: J.Crew (similar

Red, white, and blue is a classic color combination that can be taken far beyond the realms of the 4th of July and Memorial Weekend. This look pairs a boxy navy blue T-shirt (from OLD NAVY!) with bright red scarf, white skinnies (also Old Navy) and classic leather booties. Oh, and another one of my favorite pairs of earrings from Made in Mechanicsville - the Silver Lark Studs, which you can get for 40% off until the end of August using code PDXMADE

I can almost guarantee that you have pieces of clothing in almost these exact colors in your very own closet - this is a super basic, easy look that uses the "third piece rule" (remember?!?) to pull things together. I carried my old faithful navy Longchamp as well to tie everything together. Give this color combo a shot and tag me in your photo on Instagram or Twitter!

Update - a lot of people have commented about my ring! The silver ring shown above was a Christmas gift from my sweet boyfriend. He found it on Etsy, and I'll have a link to it shortly!


This post was in collaboration with Made in Mechanicsville, who provided me with earrings to style. All of the content, ideas, and opinions within this post are my own.


Outfit details (or similar pieces) can be found below - my Cole Haan sunnies are marked down to under $50, and a similar scarf is only about $15!
