Favorite patriotic fashions for Fourth of July

You’re probably thinking what I’m thinking — how can it already be July? Well, technically it’s not but in eight days it will be and what better way to kick-off the hottest month of the year than with the fantastic colors of our country’s flag — red, white and blue! Personally, we love dressing up for the Fourth of July holiday and showing our American pride and it makes for some very cute photo opportunities too. So whether you have big plans to head out for a backyard BBQ, spend all day at the beach or pool or perhaps just hitting up the local parade in town, show up in your best stars and stripes because really, it’s the one holiday where it really makes sense to wear it!
