Happy 4th of July, fellow ¡Americanos!
After Halloween and Christmas, the 4th of July is my favorite holiday. Which is a bit weird because I’ve never had an awesome/incredible/once-in-a-lifetime moment celebrating it, but I love the nostalgia of it. Lemonade, corn on the cob, burgers, beer, fireworks – that’s summer and America today. Of course, in my head, America = food. (How Liz Lemon of me.)
No fireworks for me this year, unfortunately, but my roommate Jillian and I got our barbecue fix at Dallas BBQ. SO GOOD.
I also decided my holiday outfit would be super girly – and another excuse to wear my new hat. (I guess it’s because it’s I used my point-and-shoot, but my navy skirt photographed as black.) It’s certainly a departure from last year’s 4th of July, which I spent in this dress before switching into shorts and my U.S. soccer jersey for a barbecue. And guys, I’m mixing prints. A woman at the restaurant even told me my “look” worked – sweet. Plus, I had a go at patriotic nail art:
Yeah, I call that a successful Independence Day. Enjoy the food and fireworks, everyone!
