Friday Favorites: Not So Patriotic Patriotism

June 29, 2012

The Fourth of July is next week! It’s one of my favorite holidays – family get-togethers, BBQs, fireworks, and summertime – I love it! Unfortunately, I don’t really love all the patriotic attire that goes along with it. Don’t get me wrong, I love my country and I love celebrating my freedom, but brandishing myself in stars and stripes just isn’t my thing. Luckily, there are plenty of other ways to show off some national pride without wearing a flag across your chest.

Here are five red, white, and/or blue pieces that I’m currently loving.

This would be really cute with a pair of red sandals or ballet flats.

You could wear these with a simple white sundress or something more casual like a pair of shorts and a blouse for some patriotic flair.

This could be good for a more formal occasion or just a picnic at the beach.

I’m loving the flowy shorts trend right now, and these red ones would be great for any Independence Day activities.
