July 4th is almost here and I’m still trying to figure out what to do! Usually I would want to make it a long weekend and travel somewhere, but it’s right smack dab in the middle of the week this year. Well, at the very least, we can dress up and show our patriotic colors a little bit. That’s why I think these blue and white striped split leg pants will be great for anything you do on the 4th!
I decided to wear this outfit when we were being tourists around the Tulum Ruins and Chichen Itza. The outfit ended up working perfectly for both places. When you have the hot sun beating down on you, you definitely want to wear light colors and something loose to cover your skin. Both places were amazing and I’ll be covering more details in another post so stay tuned!
Old Express Tank (XS): Surprisingly, I had the hardest time trying to find a top to work with these pants. I wanted to wear a tie-front top, but then it didn’t work since the pants had a tie-front also. In the end, I went with just a classic white tank. The whole outfit was so comfortable especially with being in the car for hours.
AQUA Striped Split Leg Pants (XS): I wanted a pair of comfy tulip or split leg pants for our Mexico trip. Something that I can wear around town or wear to the beach. I ended up wearing them all day while we toured around the ruins. I’m 5’2″ and the length of the pants do graze the ground so just be aware that the hem might get dirty if you are shorter than I am. Otherwise, the fabric was light and the split definitely helped let air in to cool off my legs.
Natural Cotton String Bag: Net bags are all the rage right now! I found this one on Amazon and I am absolutely in love with it especially for only $8. I’ve wanted to get the one pictured above which was more on the designer side, but I swear the Amazon version looks exactly the same. It’s great for grocery shopping, vacations, the beach, etc.
