I'm so American that I wear my patriotism on my skirt...



What isn't there to love about the Fourth of July? Hot dogs, fireworks, and patriotic outfits. Actually, I'll admit, I've seen some outfits that just basically made a mockery of our country in an attempt of patriotism (um, sequin oversized Uncle Sam hats, anyone?).Here is my fourth of July ensemble for tomorrow (modeled by the lovely _______, whom I'm still waiting for you, dear reader, to give a name!). The recently purchased skirt that I just keep gushing over is from Forever 21 and the tank is from Target. I'm considering keeping it simple and wearing a plain white tank instead of the ruffle one and pairing it with metallic gold sandals. I think this of a much chicer way to show off my patriotism rather than the Old Navy flag tees of my childhood,no? (Would anyone else buy them every July when they were little, or is that just me?)Should we pair it with this bag, or would that be too close to entering sequin Uncle Sam hat territory? Too much red?

This is such an old post. But you should name your mannequin Massie. (IDK if you've read The Clique series [if not, you should], but Massie, the main character, has a mannequin too. So it made me think of her.)
