The fourth of July is my all time favorite holiday. It always has been. I have so many awesome memories associated with the fourth of July; swimming at our neighborhood pool club until the sun went down, watching fireworks in my town with my best friend and then running home through the pouring rain, swinging on playground swings with Jon when we were just barely dating (butterflies in my stomach the whole time), and fireworks along the Charles in Boston with my college friends – having a blast despite terrible weather. Needless to say, I could hardly wait to leave work today. When I got into the car, I was already ecstatic to start my 3-day holiday weekend, and then magic happened- a great song came on the radio (Money by Pink Floyd). What could be better than starting my favorite holiday weekend with one of my favorite songs serendipitously playing on the radio? Well a lot of things, but this ranked pretty high. I am still excited.
To celebrate the fourth of July, I thought I’d share all my red,white, and blue ensembles (yeah, I’m that girl, the one who wears nothing but red,white, and/or blue for as many days as possible leading up to this holiday. I’m not too ashamed.) Earlier this week I even wore an outfit unconsciously that was red, white and blue; fourth of July fashion is that embedded into me.
Today’s outfit isn’t very festive. I decided to ease into the holiday garb. Here’s what I wore.
Blue Shirt: H&M
Grey Jeans: Banana Republic
Striped Sneakers: Urban Outfitter’s
Red Sunglasses: The Bead (Towson, MD)
Red Garnet Earrings: Gift from my Mamma
What do you think about outfit one?
Do you dress in red, white, and blue for the Fourth?
Is your fourth fashion more subtle?
Let me know!
P.S.: This fourth of July is going to be super awesome, even though I have no plans as of today. Why then will it be so awesome? Well it has what I call a MAGIC date. A magic date is when the month number plus the day number equals the year i.e. 07 +04=11! I love these dates because of their numerical awesomeness and so I deem this fourth of July extra special.
