The Fourth of July only comes around once a year. You want to look good.  How do you strike a balance between looking great (and maybe patriotic) while not breaking the bank?  You go to Goodwill of course!

Yesterday, I stopped at Goodwill’s Benson Park Plaza store and found a variety of styles that would be prefect for any Fourth celebration.

Let’s start casual.

These three outfits would be great for any firework show, hanging by the lake, or a barbecue at your friend’s house.  First, I paired some trendy white overalls with a striped tee.  This is not an overly-patriotic look, which still embracing today’s style.  The overalls are a comfortable option for all-day wear, and even over a swimsuit at the pool.

Next, I found an America-blue colored short dress with back cutouts.  This dress was brand new – still had the tags on!  Pair it with some red shoes and a white necklace and you’re good to go for the Fourth.

One of my favorite finds of the day was this unique stars and stripes sweater.  It’s perfect to pair with some jeans or shorts that you already own.  Throw it on over your day clothes to keep warm while watching fireworks at night.

These next looks are more dressy. For a wear-any day outfit, this coral flowy dress is perfect to keep you cool. Or pair it with a cardigan to help keep warm indoors.

If you’re working on the Fourth, keep it festive by looking for red, white, and blue in your pieces.  I found a cute white blouse and paired it with a textured blue skirt.  Or, you can go full-on patriotic with a look like this blue and white polka dotted blouse I matched with a red pencil skirt.


Have a safe and happy Fourth of July – and happy thrifting!
