I'm telling you this so that when I'm talking about how Jona wants to go somewhere and light off fireworks and I'm about to have a heart attack, you can remind me of my wonderful childhood memories. (Now no guarantees that I won't give a suggestion of where you can stick those memories... )
Luckily I have a few years before I need to think about that. For now I'm happy to go somewhere and sit in lawn chairs, eat hot dogs off the grill, and watch a fireworks show (put on by adults at a good safe distance from us). And this is what I plan to wear for such an occasion. Jean shorts with a navy stripe top and red shoes still give an Americana feel, but in a way that keeps me from melting in the heat.
If you celebrate the Fourth of July, what are your favorite childhood memories of that holiday?
Navy striped top: MODE | jean shorts: Loft | gold braid belt: Loft | leather wrap cuff: Nickel & Suede | red shoes: Toms
