« Model Patriotism | Main | Chalk it up to a Bad Hair Day »

Tomorrow we celebrate one of my most favorite federal holidays, Independence Day. Odds are, you're either hosting or attending a star-spangled soiree seething with homemade apple pies, tri-color popsicles, American craft brewed beer, and various barbecued foods on sticks.

If you're looking for a last minute independence day outfit, try to resist the urge to run out and buy anything with a flag on it. My declaration is that you most likely already own something cute in your closet that will be the perfect salute to Uncle Sam.


Feast your eyes on anything that follows the red white and blue color code, i.e. a blue and white or red and white striped top or maxi dress, a flirty solid colored sundress in pure white, bold red or navy, and you can never go wrong with a good ol' pair of American blue jeans or cut-offs paired with a plain white tee. Just add a simple red or blue accent, be it a bangle, sunnies, a bright red lip or bandana, and you're good to go.

Or you can always resort to that pair of flag imprinted platforms you just have lying around.
