Fourth of July Fashion and Traditions


I love holidays, and the Fourth of July ranks up there as one of my most favorite holidays (you know, right up there with St. Patrick's Day and my birthday...). In fact, I think I love the Fourth of July almost as much as I love my American flag cut-off blue jean shorts. That good. 

About four years ago, my family started a Fourth of July tradition at the lake house, and it has quickly become on of my most anticipated weeks of the year. Every year my family drives up from Florida, and we spend the next several days laughing together on the lake. Since our annual Fourth of July family reunion started four years ago, we have added four more family members to the mix (my husband, my cousin's husband, and two precious little baby girls). As our family continues to grow larger, our annual family reunion on the lake continues to grow more memorable.

Another thing that my family is known for is our ability to take pictures for anything and everything, and the Fourth of July lake trip is one of our favorite memories to capture on camera. For this reason, I want to make sure that I am decked out in all my patriotic best for the holiday. My goal is to look Fourth of July ready without looking overdone (or ridiculous), and this tank top is the perfect piece to get the job done. The American flag top paired with a casual pair of blue jean shorts and red sunglasses and sandals make the perfect holiday wear for a weekend on the lake. Add the most adorable manicure ever to the mix, and you are ready to celebrate America!

So tell me, what are you doing for the Fourth of July? Do you have any family traditions that surround this fabulous holiday? And most importantly, what are you wearing to celebrate the occasion?!

  1. I'm so jealous! I wish I could go hang out on the lake :) I don't have any plans for this Friday yet, but I'm sure I'll find something fun to do!

  2. That is a really cute tank! My family will be hanging out at the lake for the 4th as well. I hope you have an awesome time!
    Thanks for linking up. :)

  3. I'll be on the lake too. Fireworks on the lake are just so much better :) Super cute 4th apparel! Thanks for linking up with us.

  4. I love those sunglasses - where can I find them? I also bought a cute festive tank from and red, white and blue bangles from :)

  5. Very cute look! I think it's the perfect mix to celebrate the 4th but not look too over the top for the holiday.

  6. I am jealous of your festivities for the 4th. It is my all time favorite holiday, enjoy it. Especially in that super cute top!

  7. Our family always does a cookout on the 4th of July, and we always seem to do some kind of family photos that day, so I definitely need to find a good outfit to wear. I love that tank!
