We’re just a couple weeks away from JULY (say whaaaaat?!), and I’m already in full-on celebration mode over here! I love that we get to spend a long holiday weekend enjoying family and FREEDOM! And of course, doing those quintessentially American things like barbecuing, and eating popsicles, watermelon and yummy desserts in the backyard with loved ones.
Today we gathered a handful of our favorite red, white, and blue finds to kick off some patriotic shopping. These fun pieces will keep you cheery and mindful all the way from summer to Labor Day!
Patriotic Home Finds
These blue stripe pillows were a super lucky find. They were already a great deal, but with an additional clearance discount they are a steal! Outdoor pillows in red, white and blue are a great way to add a festive summer touch to the porch swing, and we'll keep them out all the way through to Labor Day.
I knew the porch swing would be a good investment, but we've used it even more than I thought we would! If you watch my stories ever you KNOW … it's my happy place. So decking it out for holidays is a no-brainer! If you're not ready for that big of a splurge, here is a similar swing for less.

My Red White & Blue Faves
Since Independence Day is sneaking right up on us, NOW is the perfect time to grab all the patriotic things to celebrate! We rounded up THE cutest patriotic home decor and clothing we could find. We've got red, white and blue at all different price points to get you ready for summer's main events!
- Red Swimsuit: A red swimsuit is the epitome of classic, and I love the ruffle detailing making it even more feminine.
- Gold Sandals: These sandals are THE hot shoe trend for summer AND they are 40% off right now!! I seriously can't believe what a good deal this is, making the almost-$100 shoes UNDER $60! These sandals are SO good and SO comfy.
- Blue Dress: This flutter-sleeved midi is perfect dressed up or down with white Converse or dainty gold sandals. Plus its on MEGA SALE right now; normally $90, it's now an extra 50% off the $39 sale price with code PERK at checkout!
- Levi's T-shirt: I love a good graphic tee, and the classic Levis logo screams PATRIOTIC! And it's on sale for only $14.99!
- Red Headband: Headbands are the best way to hide 3 day old hair or add a pop of color to any outfit. The twist detail on this one is also so on trend!
- Star Throw Blanket: Okay how cute is this vintage-looking star throw blanket? I'm definitely cozying up with this on my porch swing to watch fireworks!
- Pillow: I love the denim-looking stripe of blue on this pillow and the muted colors that literally go with anything! You'll find this on our front porch for sure.
- Doormat: Changing out and layering doormats is the easiest way to update your curb appeal. The pop of color is festive all year!
- Backpack: This water-resistant backpack is perfect for a day at the pool, carrying a change of clothes to a friend's BBQ, or heading to the beach!
- Round beach towel: Round beach towels are such a fun alternative to the traditional shape! This one is currently 75% off! And, Amazon always comes in clutch with inexpensive options that are just as cute!
