Fashion Friday - A Tribute!

For this week's Fashion Friday I wanted to pay tribute my country since Wednesday is the fourth of July.  Of course I used Polyvore [again] for my creation and I have actually purchased most of these pieces.  I am a big supporter of our military, being that I once was a military wife....a LONG time ago, but we will not revisit that time right now. ;)  I am, however, not a huge fan of the whole "wearing the American flag" thing.  In fact I find it a little disrespectful, but that's just me and I have no problem with others who choose to wear their country's flag. In fact, I am sure they are wearing it b/c they are so proud of their country.  It's just not for me.

I love to take these holidays to mix prints and find ways to incorporate items that have meaning to the specific holiday.  Since the U.S. flag is red, white, & blue, and stars & stripes what better then to find prints that mimic those very things.  I knew I could count on good ol' Old Navy to give me what I needed; I always find exactly what I am looking for there!  Ugh, I love them so much I can't stand it!

This is something I could even wear to the office if I wanted too!  What do you think?  Would you wear it?

Celebrate Stars & Stripes

What is your "go to" shop?

P.S. Share with me your fourth of July compilations!


  1. Definitely a great Fourth of July outfit!!

    I could have used that red and white Old Navy cardigan and the red TOMS on Sunday for Canada day!

    Isn't being festive great?!

    1. I love it! I love being a small part of something so big! I am in love with those red toms too!
