Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue

As people are gearing up across the nation for our country’s big day, many are focused on how many hot dogs they will need and what kind of sides to provide.  Not me! I am thinking about the many options in my closet that I might wear on Friday to show my patriotism in a festive, but not over the top way.  It would have been easy to pull out my white jeans or shorts and pair them with a traditional navy and white striped top.  This always looks fabulous and anyone of any age can pull it off.  As I was going through the racks in my closet, though, I came upon my ivory silk blouse with navy blue stars.  This  I knew was going to be the focus of my – Happy Birthday, America- outfit.  Not wanting to wear the obvious white on the bottom option, I continued looking and chose a smart pair of very dark wash moto pants in denim.  These jeans are more like dress pants, as they have a hidden closure, no belt loops and are not your typical five pocket jeans.  They have a bit of an edgy look with the reinforced knees that resemble those pants worn by motocross riders.  The pants fit like a song and are a nice alternative to traditional style denim.  Not wanting to leave out the red in red, white and blue, I added my red flats, which are a comfortable and sensible choice for a long day of being on your feet at picnics and parties.  I popped on a fun, blue, geometric lucite bracelet and the look is simple and ready. Have a happy and safe 4th of July everyone!
