Shopping: Buy American

Fourth of July is coming. Which means it’s time to break out the red, white and blue + stars and stripes combos, if you haven’t already (I got started at Memorial Day, see the proof). Technically you’re not supposed to wear the flag but there’s nothing in the rules about the aforementioned color/pattern combos.

So if you’re wanting to be as patriotic as this pretty gal below (p.s. – she did a bomb round-up on Babble last year of 16 All-American outfits to try, check it out), it’s time to break out what you’ve had packed up or pony up for some new gear. I snagged this bathing suit at Target for less than $20 so you definitely don’t have to break the bank to show your American pride.

My favorite way to get in the spirit is either by incorporating all the colors with stuff I already have  or by adding just a touch of full-on stars and stripes

Also, I tried to do a full-on inspiration post, like I’ve done the last couple years, but all the patriotic pictures I love are still the same. So just head over to this one again to get in the spirit.

  1. Love that red + white number from Old Navy. They’ve definitely stepped up their game lately!
