Ever since I learned to recite the Pledge of Allegiance at the tender age of five, I have been proud to be an American. I never took my pledge lightly, vowing to honor the great flag that honored our great nation with every fiber of my five year old being... and not just because my kindergarten teacher Miss Kostyra forced us to say it every morning in scattered ADHD inspired unison.
I recognized even at that young age that I was lucky to live in a republic that offered liberty and justice for all, a country that celebrated the birth of our nation every year with fireworks, sparklers, hot dogs and homemade apple pie. A nation that Bruce Springsteen and Neil Diamond wrote motivational songs about. A nation represented by a super cool flag motif, courtesy of that colonial wonder woman with a needle and thread, Betsy Ross.
It isn't quite Independence Day for me unless I'm rocking a starry and striped theme like these Denim American Shorts paired with a red, white and blue top like the American Flag Heart Tank or cropped Watercolor Flag Short Sleeve Top, all from dELiA*s.
If you're looking for even more freedom tees and tanks, Maurice's has a hot-blooded All-American collection of patriotic tops on sale for $9.90 each, while supplies last.
Happy 4th Let'sTalkStyler's, and as Miley Cyrus would say,
Yeah-Eh-Yeah-Eh-Yeah-Eh, it's a party in the USA.
