Show your colors for the 4th of July!

The 4th of July is just 2 weeks away! Every 4th of July, I'm standing on the sidelines, watching and photographing the legendary Strathmere 4th of July Parade . I love it when the parade starts and the fire trucks blow their sirens. I get goosebumps, and I want to jump up and down and cheer. I love the kids with their decorated bicycles and there are also several groups/families with fun themes and costumes. For a little town, we do a great parade.

I try very hard to be dressed in red, white and blue, but sometimes it depends on how hot the weather is and what I remembered to pack! Of course I try to wear vintage too.

Here are some great Vintage Red, White and Blue items to add to your 4th of July outfit!

Here are two super cute tops, fun Sailor Print sleeveless top and anchor tank top -
and a sweet Mod Scooter mini dress -
