The 4th of July is without a doubt one of my favorite holidays â€“ hot dogs, fireworks, pool time and America. What could be better?
I have so many fond memories of the 4th of July from growing up. Weâ€™ve spent tons of holidays at the ballpark watching the Rangers, parades in our old neighborhood where Iâ€™d spend hours decorating my bike in our garage the night before, and a few out of town but still finding somewhere to watch fireworks.
Thereâ€™s such a sense of pride and honor that hits me (and I think you would agree) when the sky lights up on the 4th of July. Itâ€™s a reminder of where weâ€™ve been and where we can go, united together.
Now that Iâ€™m further away from home I usually donâ€™t get to spend this special holiday with my family, but Iâ€™m so excited that this year my sister and her husband and my nephew will be with us over the long weekend. Weâ€™re planning on spending plenty of time at the beach and by the pool where my tote will come in very handy. I spotted this dress at Old Navy and knew it would be perfect for the weekend â€“ easy to throw on after a day in the sun and the crochet details give it a dressier vibe for dinnertime.
For a little patriotic touch I added this red, white and blue striped scarf to my tote and can throw it on with a white top, too during the daytime.
How will you be celebrating the 4th this year?
