Firecrackers and Chuck Taylor
Our country’s independence day is on Sunday and for us fashionistas this gives us another excuse to go shopping. Yay! This year I’m doing simple, chic, and affordable. If you’re like me you will be attending a cookout or two over the weekend and can’t afford to get your new Prada’s ruined. So in order to relax and have a good time, wear something that you can relax and have a good time in. You don’t want to sit out on the volleyball game because you can’t risk getting grass stains on your linen pants. My advice: Go with denim. Denim shorts and a vintage tee can go a long way in keeping you cool and chic. Dig out your favorite Levi’s to pay homage to the American denim industry and my favorite brand of jeans; and rummage around for those T- shirts that you only wear jogging and to the gym. Slip on your favorite Converses and you’ve just completed the All- American look. In the spirit of patriotism I will be donning my favorite Levi’s and my red, scuffed Converses. I’ll top it off with a blue and white tank to represent all of our nation’s colors. If you have to go shopping for a new outfit, many if not all stores are having sales this week and next week in honor of Independence Day. Remember to stay cool, be safe, and have fun. Happy 4th of July! Peace, love, and fashion!
