The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays! It marks the beginning of Summer – especially here in the PNW. It’s a great time to reflect on how lucky we are to live in this country and to celebrate that freedom. It’s also a great excuse to have a hot dog, a drink of choice, and hang out with friends and family. Not to mention, at the end of it all, there are usually fireworks.

I also enjoy striking the balance of wearing my red, white and blue, without looking exactly like a head to toe American flag. Below, I’ve put together mix and match items that you can wear to show your patriotism, but without needing to rent a statue of liberty costume. Nothing wrong with that of course, if that’s your thing. 🙂

Have a safe and happy holiday!
