American

Independence Day is tomorrow and every year I let the holiday go by just like any other day.  Yes, I love the fireworks and can't help taking up someone's invite to an immense barbecue of course...   but this year, July 4th is tugging at my heartstrings a bit.  

I guess I've been thinking about it and I can say, in my own life that I have personally never felt more free, more independent and more self-sufficient than right now.... 

Coincidentally, there's a holiday where I can celebrate all those feelings.  


I recently saw a delicious photo on my Instagram feed and now I can't find it again for the life of me!  Cool-watermelon-eating girl, if you are reading this, thank you for the yummy inspiration :)

This is officially now the only way I will eat a watermelon.

And I plan to eat a lot of these mini ones all holiday long.


Continuing on my stripe obsession, I thought it would be cool to make a red & white striped version of my Tiny Closet Collection tees.  
Worn with some comfy blue jeggings stretch denims, I am fully prepared to enjoy the festivities.


So Happy Fourth of July to everyone!  
Wherever you are, I hope you are enjoying your day and appreciating where you are, where you came from and what you're made of.  Who run the world? lol

Be young, be dope, be proud...
Like an American.
