Coast to Coast Style: Americana

dress (worn as top)- c/o Shabby Apple [similar]
belt, bracelets, rings- vintage, thrifted/gifted
sandals- Bandolino via TJ Maxx

There is no better time of year to let your freak flag fly than 4th of July celebrations! It is the epitome of Americana style but you don't have to limit yourself to cutoffs and a flag tank. Not that I am opposed to them. When Dani & I decided to do Americana for this month's Coast to Coast Style I racked my brain for weeks for what to wear! This outfit came to me in a late night I-can't-sleep-so-I-will-outfit-plan and, though it may seem crazy, I think it actually works. Yeah yeah yeah... I mixed prints and I look like a weirdo, but the only way I could look more like a flag is if I'd worn my plastic yellow star bracelet. Next time, next time.

On to Dani...

blouse- Ralph Lauren
jeans- Seven for All Mankind
belt- Target
sandals- Kohl's

What I have always loved about Dani's style is how easy it is. So relaxed. Like you're just hanging out with her sipping an Icee. I've never sipped an Icee with her, but I have been to Sonic with her-- does that count? 

This look from Dani represents that American ease that the rest of the world pokes fun at us for! A cute bandana-print blouse, boyfriend jeans in a great wash, and comfy sandals make the world go round. And you can't get more American than a bandana. I mean...

Head over to The Daily Dani to see more!
