one of my favorite things about summer is celebrating our country’s birthday, which is this coming saturday! i always get emotional singing the national anthem and seeing everyone out waving their american flags or crowding together to watch fireworks or light their own sparklers in the evening because it makes me feel nostalgic for the traditions my family had each year around the 4th growing up. i’m grateful for these kinds of traditions that differ for everyone around this time of year, but still bring us all together in some way as we all feel gratitude for being in a country where we have the privilege to be free.
so every year on the 4th, dressing my family all match-matchy in red, white and blue appropriately just seems like a fun and necessary part of all the celebrations! (see here, here and here.) you know, it’s the important stuff like what we’ll wear that keeps me up far past my bedtime at night. (kidding! i’m totally kidding.) ;)

1. striped tote, 2. heat wave lipstick, 3. round tortoiseshell sunglasses, 4. striped shift dress, 5. salt water sandals, 6. sorella dress, 7. superga canvas sneakers, 8. skipstich sun hat, 9. arizona platform slide, 10. river island sunglasses and 11. v-neck kaftan dress
