American Girl

Crystal Nguyen

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Have any plans today? Leave them in the comments below - I would love to hear what festivities you have planned.

If you are going to a backyard BBQ, pool party, music event or spending the day at the beach, “American Girl” is for you. When I was styling “American Girl,” I was thinking about the different laid back events, and what I would want to wear on the 4th of July if I was going to a friend’s BBQ. As the challenge was to create another look around my gold star earrings from Forever 21 and Kiki heels from Target, I wanted to re-create the modern American girl look. For “American Girl,” I kept the look fairly simple with a cami, cardigan from Bethany Mota’s line at Aeropostale, and shorts from H&M. I love being comfortable, especially in basics. Also, because this look has versatility, you can easily have a soft romantic look when you take off your heels to relax by the pool, play football on the beach, or to watch the sunset and fireworks with your loved ones at the park.

Readers, please have a safe 4th of July and weekend and I will see you again soon.
