Stars & Stripes

4th of July

When thinking of a look for the 4th July for some reason I always refer to festival wear.  I imagine care free people dancing & drinking in front of a stage to Sweet Home Alabama until the sun goes down & the fireworks begin. 

I am kind obsessed with this patriotic cut off shorts, they look super comfortable & easy to wear for the day.  Seen as they make a statement I opted for a comfy tee & a wrist full of bracelets to finish the look. 

This was my first official 4th of July as a citizen so I added a little nail art to my day, although it looked a little more wonder woman rather than American in the end. 

Oh well, I tried.  I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I am off to watch the X Factor auctions in North Carolina this weekend!  Not sure what to expect but hopefully its fun!

Don't forget to stop by and see the other looks at {longdistanceloving} today!

After the Storm

After last Fridays crazy storm causing thousands of people to loose power in VA, (thankfully all we lost was internet & cable until yesterday) I have had the most exhausting week. 

Along with the storm my close friend had an adorable baby boy, I was in a small car accident, work has been super busy & the temperature has been over 100 most days & this Brit can't handle that kind of heat & humidity.  Luckily I was able to relax a little on the Fourth & enjoy some fireworks. 

I hope everyone had a great Fourth & after five days without internet I am so happy to put together a look for Friday Fancies tomorrow.
