Happy Fourth of July!

Is wearing the Americana trend on the Fourth of July the same as wearing a band’s shirt to the concert? I’ve been debating this all week.

The verdict? Yes, but I’m kind of okay with it. “It’s like wearing an Easter dress for Easter,” Gregor reasons.

That settled, I chose to dress for the occasion – I even made a basically red, white and blue friendship bracelet (because pink is really just light red if you think about it).


We’re currently packing up a picnic of asparagus, apple and cashew sandwiches (inspired by No. 7 Sub), barbeque potato chips, fresh berries and some patriotic desserts we picked up from Cafe Vanille before heading out to catch the fireworks on the Charles. Gregor kept his drink choices to the theme with 21st Amendment Imperial IPA and Pretty Things American Darling.

Hope everyone is having a safe and lovely holiday!

      I attempted to find a tutorial for you online but instead got sucked into a web of over-complicated patterns for panda faces, letters, etc… I need to fix my scanner and send you the instructions!

    I love how you frequent all the Charles St. businesses. I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve never been in Beacon Hill Chocolates, much less realized they made lovely macaroons!

      I should be more embarrassed to admit that everyone at the chocolate shop knows me by name and knows I’ll be in each Thursday, like clockwork!

  6. He is right but at the same time it’s like wearing a Halloween costume on Halloween. It just must be done. Plus you add your own flare as usual. I love the orange nails our woven bracelets and of course the tutu!

    One of my fave red, white and blue looks! And yes, you have to wear it. It is what it is. I don’t MAKE the rules, I just know what they are :)
