Insta-Style — The 4th of July

June 26, 2015

One of my favorite days of the year, the 4th of July, is just over a week away! Home in San Diego we take Independence Day quite seriously (in part due to the large military population) and by serious I mean we get down all day long. Festivities begin with bagels and bloody Marys at 7am sharp, there's a parade, and then we barbeque until the sun goes down and the fireworks go off.

Planning one's 4th of July outfit, then, becomes just as important as picking out a prom or a wedding dress. Concocting a patriotic outfit with the perfect ratio between red, white, and blue is an artform, carefully crafted over the years.

Some choose the full-on America, F Yeah! approach; think American Apparel flag leggings, bandana headbands, and bro tanks. Others go the sundress route, usually striped in blue & white or red & white, with a statement accessory in the third color.

Me? I'm thinking somewhere in between this year, with my new Urban Outfitters button-down denim skirt that I'm obsessed with, my trusty high-tops, and a vintage T-shirt.
