Happy Monday all! The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays, and even more so now that we have two little ones. Every year we celebrate our nation’s birthday with our family in California, and spend the day splashing at the pool or beach followed by an all-American dinner (cue the hot dogs, corn on the cob and cherry pie with ice cream!) as well as spectacular fireworks at my parent’s country club. We are going to let C stay up late this year to watch the fireworks, and I have the feeling he will be thrilled by the brilliant and sparkling bursts of red, white and blue.
As always, I’m trying to plan everyone’s outfits ahead, and I’m thinking of wearing white jeans with a blue and white striped top (aka my summer uniform), red sandals, and a jean jacket to throw over my shoulders since it can be cool once the sun sets. To help inspire your outfit for the 4th, here are a few of my patriotic favorites that would be perfect for everything from a casual BBQ to a dressy dinner. Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!
