Happy 4th

Jacket: Free People | Shorts, Boots, Shirt, Scarf: Thrifted | Bag: Old Faithful Vintage

Yesterday Tim and I experienced our first Philadelphia 4th of July. We went down by the water and swung on hammocks and ate burgers and all-you-can-eat ice cream and then watched fireworks at night. The fireworks show was so packed...we ended up shoving our way through the massive crowd and found a quiet spot in the park to watch the fireworks; definitely more our style! The fireworks show was beautiful, but I sure missed being back in Indiana at my parents house celebrating the 4th. My Dad usually buys a huge fireworks kit for us to set off. Then we'll spend the evening in their backyard, grilling out and blasting cheesy patriotic music and watching the fireworks explode in the air. I think next year we'll make it a point to buy some fireworks to set off ourselves! Hope you all had a beautiful holiday....Hooray for long weekends!

  6. Sounds like a fun 4th of July! I hate being stuck in crowds watching fireworks though, so I understand. I really like your patriotic outfit. That striped shirt is so perfect for the holiday!

  7. Such a fun outfit!

    And, when I saw the picture of the "Super Scooper" sign I smiled and wished that I could attend such an event.

    Sorry you were missing your family and family traditions, but I am glad that you got to make some new happy memories.
