"Like An American..."

Fourth of July deserves a funny, slightly tacky outfit. I went all-out Americana, especially being in the Washington DC area where patriotism is especially in full effect. It's been a nice, relaxing weekend so far, celebrating my boyfriend Ben's birthday, as well as the USA's! 

I think I've work this vest and skirt combo the past three years on July fourth since it's the perfect color scheme and comfortable for the weather. I found a bandana and sunglasses that I'll be able to use for the rest of the summer at little NYC shopping tourist traps. Summer just feels extra american to me, and especially with Memorial Day and Labor Day, there's many excuses to wear american flag accessories and colors. Next year I'll have to go shopping though for a new, festive look since I've played this one out the past few holidays.

Now we can all get back to drinking tea, watching Downton Abbey, and wearing union jacks!
