We are pleased to introduce former TWD stylist and present guest blogger, ‘Head Over Heels with Melanie’ founder, Melanie Kluger. Read on to see how Mel takes one stunning maids dress and creates three different looks you are sure to sparkle for this Independence day!
“If there is one thing I love, it’s planning a nautical ensemble! July 4th is the absolute perfect excuse to bust out that new striped clutch or fantastic navy hat. Since I am a self-proclaimed “nautical fashion enthusiast” I feel it is my duty to help prepare you for the upcoming holiday! Today I thought we would focus on accessorizing an adorable bridesmaids dress for your outdoor bash. The White Dress by The Shore has so many great dresses for your bridesmaids and beyond! One of my favorites is the Jenny Yoo “Nikki” dress. The silk cotton fabric translates so well from day to evening. Which is exactly what you need for a fabulous Independence Day fete! Between the sunny Marigold shade and the flattering A line silhouette this cutie is extremely versatile for summer. I’ve put together three July 4th inspired looks that are festive, modern and fresh no matter what your plan is this Wednesday!

Anchors Away –This sophisticated getup is maritime style at its finest! Whether you are going to a rooftop get-together or on a romantic date with your sweetie this look has got you covered!
Soiree at Sea – I just adore a day with friends on a sailboat. What a lovely way to celebrate Independence Day! This alluring outfit is effortless and sleek. Not to mention, who doesn’t love a good striped shoe!
Shoreline Stroll – Hey there Connecticut Shoreline Cuties, this look is especially for you! When I think of summer on the Shoreline I think of BBQs, Twilight Strolls and picnics. If that rings a bell for your July 4th festivities than you are going to adore this look! This Jenny Yoo stunner pairs perfectly with Stella and Dot Jewelry including my new favorite statement ring! Stella and Dot has some great nautical accessories that I am totally obsessed with this season!
Hope you enjoyed my 3 Nautical Chic looks to gussy up your bridesmaids dress. Like what you see? Jenny Yoo’s “Nikki” dress is available at The White Dress By The Shore right now! Happy Fourth!
