Fashion Over 50: My Favorite July 4th Outfit

Since I began blogging, this has been my favorite July 4th outfit ….and it was in 2016!  I still own this poncho I purchased at Chicos and may wear it this weekend. We are not celebrating on the 4th, but have a family event going on through the weekend.  That is why blogging will be sparse again this week, but after this week it is full throttle July blogging!  And as I said on Sunday….I love this month for blogging!

I usually do not wear a complete red, white, and blue ensemble.  So this is as close as it gets to dressing for the holiday…but, believe, my patriotic spirit is still alive and kicking!  I found some fun July 4 table decorations at Marshalls and they will be so cute for the special dinner I am in charge of.  All of our family members are in charge of different meals for our holiday celebration time and it will be fun to see what my children and their families come up with.

If you are hosting or attending a special celebration, let us know what you are wearing!  We would love to hear…and I know Canadians are celebrating as well!  I found some cute options currently at Chicos and placed them in a fun slideshow below.

So, HAPPY JULY 4th!  HAPPY SUMMER….and ……………….no matter the heat………………………



  1. This is a perfect outfit to wear for the 4th! Or anytime, it’s just beautiful. The poncho looks light as air! You will look stunning in this outfit! I often find myself favoring navy and white over black and white, and that’s saying something! I don’t wear red, white and blue either, there is something about it that isn’t me. I like to be more understated. Since the 4th is mid-week and my only day off from work, I don’t have anything planned other than going to see fireworks with my son and daughter-in-law which is a tradition for us. Not sure what I’ll wear yet, but I’m leaning toward my blue and white SS crops with a navy linen top and a large scarf for a cover up. Enjoy your family time!

    1. Your outfit sounds perfect for today, Karen! Can’t go wrong with Soft Surroundings! Happy 4th!

  2. Wow, that’s a great outfit. It’s very flattering and looks very chic and cool for these hot July days. I would love an outfit like this, and the blue and white is a nice change from the ubiquitous black and white. Time to go shopping!

    1. It is one of those purchases I am so glad I made, Mari because I know I will wear it until it is done!

  3. This poncho is really striking on you! I love it! Thanks for the nod to Canadians! We celebrate Canada Day July 1st so lots of red and white here. Unfortunately, it was too hot to be outside! Unusual for us. Happy 4th of July and family times!

  4. Beautiful poncho Pam, and so flattering on you! You look great! I can’t wear the whole red, white & blue either… so I either go with red and white or navy, and add contrasting accessories. Happy 4th of July to you & yours!
