It’s that time of year again to celebrate our nation’s independence. As most of us go about the day with some fun activities and rituals, here are a few things that I’m incorporating to help make it a success.
I will style a patriotic inspired outfit of some sort. It’s the only day of the year where it is perfectly acceptable and strongly encouraged to dress like a flag. So many possible combinations of stars, stripes, red, white, and blue with face paint and glow stick accessorizing optional.
I will rock a bandana like The Boss today. It’s hot as hell outside and I can’t think of a better way to top off a pony. It’s a great fashion statement for those who dare, and will stay functional by keeping the sweat from dripping in your eyes while looking up at the fireworks.
I will listen to Jimi Hendrix doing the Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock. It gets me pumped to fire up the barbie, throw on some fringe, and want to learn how to play Guitar Hero.
I will catch some fireworks – hoping they will be fashionable. Fingers crossed the pyro’s have made some advances from basic shapes and shooting star effects. I mean really, is it too much to ask for a firework shaped liked Karl Lagerfeld?
