It's the 4th of July here in 'Merica, and I'm happily not grilling beef and drinking beer. I am, instead, drinking coffee and eating a kale salad in a cafe while I marvel at the free speech component of the internet and watch body love campaigns explode internationally. I'm a fan of today for a whole other reason.
I love mixing red white and blue because it's nostalgic. Because it reminds me seafaring men covered in ink. Because I somehow do it without trying. Because it's a nod to 30 other countries who's colors are also red white and blue. Because it's the next best color combination after red white and black. And because it looks really really good in stripes and polka dots.
Sadly, this entire outfit it thrifted, so I cant send you off in search of a copy. You can, however, enjoy these pictures of me in the golden afternoon light that accompanies monsoon season here in AZ. It's a rather sadistic weather season, torturing you with painful humidity in a state filled with swamp coolers... But nothing feels better than when it finally pours. Here's hoping for rain today when everyone else wants it to stay dry for fireworks!
