Happy Independence Day!
First, thank you all for your help picking out my birthday outfit yesterday! Option 1 was the fan favorite so that is what I wore. I am waiting to see if my friends got some decent photos at my party. Unfortunately we were outdoors and my camera decided not to cooperate in the dark. If I can find a photo I will post it for you all! I had a fabulous birthday and a great time visiting with friends!
Independence Day is my favorite holiday. There is so much rich history with it (we are so fortunate to have our independence!) and as a musician I love all of the fantastic music it inspired. Here in New England a big tradition is watching “Pop’s Goes the Fourth”, a performance on the Esplanade in Boston. The Boston Pops perform a magnificent show with celebrity features. My favorite is always the 1812 Overture complete with canon’s and culminating the in the fireworks display over the harbor.
I always wear my red, white and blue to celebrate, however, I refuse to deck myself out head to toe in flags. There are far better ways to look patriotic!
This is what I threw together on Polyvore for the occasion. I wish I had these items in my closet!
What will you be wearing on The Fourth? Do you make a point of wearing red, white and blue? How will you be celebrating?
