Celebrating the USA Independence Day in red, white, and blue is a no-brainer! Since I live in the South, a light, graphic tee, short shorts, and sandals create a simple yet patriotic look to keep me cool in the humidity and heat. I spent most of the weekend at the lake so light layers were essential. See my festive outfit below!
As a history buff, the year 1776 is easily one of my favorites. The American Revolution has captivated my interest since I was little. While girls were dancing to Spice Girls in their bedrooms, I was watching a mini series of George Washington’s life (played by Barry Bostwick) on repeat. My parents literally gave me the choice of Disney World or Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia (a Revolutionary War living history museum) for vacation one year…and I chose Williamsburg. I jam to the soundtrack of 1776: A Musical in my car and I’ve visited George Washington’s home of Mount Vernon more than 10 times. That’s just me.
When I saw this the 1776 graphic tee at Chantilly Boutique, I scooped it up to wear on the 4th of July. A white short, neutral, blinged out sandals, and a navy bandana made the outfit subtly patriotic and easy to wear on a hot and humid day with scattered rain showers. Wearing light, neutral makeup ensured that the humidity and inevitable sweat wouldn’t leave me looking like a sad clown!
