4th of July Giveaway

When it comes to holiday attire, I always try to be festive without going overboard (unless this dress was in-stock, then I might re-consider). This weekend is no different. I wanted to wear something that was patriotic, trendy, and appropriate for 90-degree weather. I found this fabulous neon, electric blue Nicole by Nicole Miller dress at JCPenney not too long ago, and it seemed to suit me well for this red, white, and blue holiday! 

{casual look}




{dressy look}

dress and heels: c/o jcpenney
sandals: c/o ruche
belt: target

I am in love with this dress - the color is gorgeous and the design is clean, but intriguing. It's perfect for dressing up or down, it's interesting without being obnoxious, and it's cool enough for summer! I thought I would share with you all two looks with this dress sine there are so many different activities that take place on the 4th of July.

The first few pictures I'm wearing a more casual look - a belted waist and some gladiator sandals. This look is perfect for a festival, parade, or a backyard bbq. I took off the belt and traded in the sandals for pumps and created a more dressy look - great for a fancier dinner celebration or wedding.

Ok, enough about my look, let's get to the giveaway! JCPenney is offering one of my fabulous readers a $50 gift card for you to put together your own look! All you have to do is leave a comment below! The giveaway will close a week from today and a winner will be announced next Tuesday! Good luck!!
