Birthday Suit

Halter - Ann Taylor (old), Skirt - F21, Bracelets - Aloha Stadium Swap Meet, HI
So today is my birthday, but this is not what I wore on my birthday. This is what I wore on America's birthday. I don't know what America is wearing on my birthday. Tomorrow, I will post what I wore on my birthday, but I'm sure America will not post what it wore on my birthday. I know, it all gets very confusing. Let's just get back to my outfit. The one I wore yesterday.

Happy Belated Fourth of July everyone! I love this bright red A-line skirt. It was so festive for the fourth, and its thick jersey material is very forgiving. I have tons of ideas for other ways to wear it this summer, but for the Fourth of July barbecue I went to, I figured it was appropriate to wear a plain white halter with it and some navy sunglasses. Red, white, and blue, baby. I love that our nation's colors fit right in with the nautical trend that's so hot right now.

For the Fourth, we celebrated by watching a little neighborhood parade roll down in front of my house and then headed over to a barbecue at the house of one of my closest friends. The greatest thing about the small town I live in now is that it's legal to set off all sorts of amazing fireworks. Being from LA, this always amazes me and excites me. I think I may be a bit of a pyro because I just LOVE lighting them up. We ate amazing food, drank yummy fruity drinks, and lit off hundreds of fireworks. It was a great night...and a great start to celebrating my birthday. Yup, bringing it back to ME again.

What did you guys do for the Fourth? Tonight, we head to some special secret place for a celebratory birthday dinner and I've been told to "dress my best." My favorite directive. Happy Birthday to me!

happy birthday again :)

i love that skirt!! seriously. and i have a soft spot for halter tops.

i watched fireworks on a hill over the valley where i live now. there was supposed to be a couple of "scheduled" shows but the whole valley was a large community show which was neat. i didn't light any because i didn't feel like buying any. i also grew up in LA, in the westside. how about that?

Thank you for the birthday wishes, clementine! Glad you like the skirt because you're going to see it a lot on this blog. :) Yay for LA origins!
