Real Independence Style


I’m so excited to feature on this Independence Day 6 stylish looks from 6 real ladies (including Megan and myself). I’m pretty proud of my fashionable and down-to-earth friends so I thought what would be more fun than to display them in my style post on the 4th of July! These adorable ladies were sweet enough to let us showcase their fabulous and unique styles. They shopped their own closest’s and showed up to our photo shoot, which happened to be in front of my neighbor’s garage, wearing an outfit of their choice to celebrate this Independence Day. Without further delay, here are 6 looks to replicate and celebrate in!
