Oh, America! I’m so happy you were born! Not simply because I get to wear your colors and your symbols. But truly, I am proud to be an American.

I don’t really do FAVORITES. I don’t have a favorite color. I don’t have a favorite kid. (That would be bad, right?) I have lots of candy I likes, but I’m not discriminating. I like gummi, and fruity, and chocolate, and cinnamon, and ice cream, and cupcakes, and cookies all the same.

So no surprise, I don’t have a favorite Holiday. The 4th of July is right up there with Easter (because we always go to Moab), and Christmas (because, who doesn’t like Jesus and Santa?), and my Birthday.

I do have a soft spot for what I’ll call Americana styling for lack of a better term, and yes you can cue the Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford and Sons, The Wailin’ Jenny’s (even though they might be Canadian), and Willie Nelson.

I love me some red white and blue in any combination. Now careful, because I do draw the line at fully wearing the flag, and head scarves with screaming eagles powering down on the stars and stripes. But I really do love to dress in the red, white, and blue.

Here in Utah we have the distinction of being able to carry our Americana from May 30th all the way through July 24th. Pioneer Day, folks, if you’ve never heard that one. So I’ve styled up some outfits to get you through these star spangled Holidays, and heck, I’d encourage you to try out your red, white, and blue style savvy any month of the year!

Have a fabulous Friday! Coming at you with a Science Saturday post tomorrow!

XX, Megan
