It was pretty tough for me to pick a Fourth of July outfit to share today, because in my heart all summer is America season!  I really love America (in case you haven’t caught on to that yet), so, naturally, I love wearing red, white, and blue!  I’ll be sharing two more Independence Day themed outfits with you in the next week, but this is the one I ultimately chose to wear on the holiday itself.  I rarely wear t-shirts in daily life, so a Saturday holiday seemed like as good a reason as any to break out one of my favorites!  Johnny Cupcakes is one of my all-time favorite Boston brands.  Founder Johnny Earle has an incredible entrepreneurial spirit (definitely see him speak publicly if you ever have the opportunity) and a really cool story that you can read about here.  Personal opinion: if you’re going to wear a t-shirt, it should probably be a statement making one.  In that category, Johnny Cupcakes definitely does not disappoint.  This Captain America inspired gem was just recently restocked, but so far none of the other Avengers ones have been- so definitely snag one up while you can!  It’s unbelievably comfy and perfect for a day of wiffleball games and volleyball tournaments, which is the only way I can imagine celebrating America.  An important note: it does run super small.  I usually wear an XS-S in tops, and this medium fits me on the snug side.

Keeping up with the cute and comfortable theme of today: TOMS are my must have barbecue shoe.  They’re easy to slip on and off when you need to change into a swimsuit, and equally as easy to play basketball in.  So for any active celebrations these are a must (I’m partial to the classic red since they can be worn with so many outfits, but I also really love all of the American styles they offer!)  Last but certainly not least, J.Crew Factory and J.Crew have the most amazing denim boyfriend shorts I have ever worn.  They are so soft and flexible and universally flattering I cannot think of a more perfect item for the Fourth.
