Happy July 4th everyone! Do you wear red, white and blue on the 4th of July? Here’s my nod to patriotic colors as we head off to a backyard BBQ with friends.
I’m wearing my biggest sun hat, which you can see creates great shade for my face and neck. My neck seems to take a tougher beating from the sun these days, so the larger the hat, the better.
Here’s my white
A simple white tank and maxi sweater for arm coverage. My upper arms are getting to be a problem…I see pushups in my future!
Here’s my blue
My Chico’s trouser jeans, which are very forgiving for big meals and sitting around.
Here’s my red
Since I don’t wear red clothes, I painted my toes Well Red by Essie.
This is my first pair of Pikolino’s sandals and won’t be my last. The ankle strap is velcro, and they are very comfortable. The whipstitched edge is as boho as I get!
I can still remember like it was yesterday in June 1997 when I had my citizenship ceremony to become an American. I’d lived in the country since I was 12, both my children and husband were American, and it was a special moment to celebrate with them. Later that year I was able to vote for the first time in the presidential election, a privilege that I never take for granted.
How are you celebrating the Fourth of July?
