As soon as the 4th of July comes around I am always too busy at the beach, buying fireworks, and finding a way to stop by every fun party happening in that one day, that the choosing of my outfit is pushed back until the night before. I am always a bit disappointed afterwards, wishing I would’ve put more style into my fourth outfit. This year I was determined to get a head start on my 4th of July getup and pick clothes that are not only stars and stripes, but can be worn for all the summer adventures to come soon after.

I love overalls, I could live and sleep in overalls. There is nothing better than when I find a pair of great overalls that look even better on me than they do hanging on the rack. It doesn’t matter which brand, where they came from, or how old they are, they just have to fit me like they were designed just for me. Not only are these overalls the perfect fit, but they are jungle print. If you know me, I do not wander far from loud, fun prints. So my favorite print combined with my deep love for overalls, makes for a match made in outfit heaven. The great thing about overalls is, unlike dresses and skirts, you can jump and run around in them. These overalls brought out my inner tomboy. I completed my laid back look with a matching backwards hat and dreams of climbing around a lush jungle. Tie on some converse and you’ll be back in grade school, only this time you’ll be cooler. If you really want to get a little wild, I sometimes pair these overalls with a leopard coat. While that may sound too wild for some, my excuse has been that both prints are “jungle theme” that counts for something right?
Just two hours north of Pichilemu is one of the most beautiful coastal cities in the world. Viña del Mar has the beach and surf culture wherever you look. Reñaca is a famous beach break where we spent most of our time surfing. During any time of day at Reñaca you will see all the best Chilean surfers in the line up. My dad was given the opportunity to coach the Chilean National Surf Team and give them some advice on being better competitors. It was awesome meeting all the Billabong Chile team riders and seeing how the brands we have here in the States have made such an impact in other beach communities all around the world. Besides the surfing, there are all kinds of fun cafes, stores, and sandy beaches to lay on all day long. I brought my new camo jacket that perfectly complimented my overalls and striped crop top. This outfit definitely made a statement when walking along the boardwalk and helped me stay warm while still looking “cool.” My scarf (pictured below) added the perfect pop of color to my outfit and was even an awesome beach blanket for me to relax on while watching all the guys surf heats out in the water… oh and did I mention that we saw a few penguins while surfing?!
