Loving Life after 50

July 4th Flying my Colours

Happy July 4th to my American Friends and Family, today you celebrate your Independence. 

 Americans sure do know how to show your patriotism, movies, decor, clothing, everywhere you turn red, white and blue and stars and stripes..  and I love the whole combination.  Normally I have a great excuse for flying your colours, Bluesfest has usually started and I dress up to give all the American bands a taste of home.

Two years I dressed in my colours for the opening of the festival.
patriotic outfit
This year there is no festival prep for me but I still I cannot let the day go by without a small shoutout ( plus I have the shoes so I have to help you celebrate right??? OK I know its been there got the t-shirt as a true expression but would you expect anything less then ” Been there got the shoes from me”)
Old Navy is seriously one of the greatest places in the world for finding patriotic pieces ( my shoes last year) but this year, its all about the stripes and subtle stars. My Old Navy striped tee ( matching my favourite striped dress, seemed the perfect compliment to my shoes.  The air was a little chilly so I figured I would wear my denims, paired with a blazer its the perfect patriotic heading to the theatre type outfit. ( guess what I am going to see?)

 Outfit: Denims, shoes and Tee-Old Navy, Blazer– Ricki’s, Fedora– Carnival
 Wishing  all of my American Friends and Followers ( who I hope are also friends) a Very Very Happy Independence Day.
