Patriotic Cut-Offs and a Parade

"Mommy, I can't hold your hand.  I'm waving to the people."
Princess Sparkles marched in a parade on Independence Day.
She even had the princess wave, which she learned at Disneyland.
Meanwhile, when asked about her favorite part of the fireworks,
Pigtails replied, "the dog."  It was sitting next to us at the park.

BLACK SANDALS - Target (thrifted)
FEDORA - Eugenia Kim for Target

L-R: Rimmel (midnight blue), Essie (limited addiction),
Sally Hansen (Blue Pacific), Essie (Lapis of Luxery), Essie (Playa del Platinum)

Here's what I wore for the 4th of July.  I was so excited by these printed cut-offs from Forever 21.  I decided to go with a black nursing tank for easy feeding for Bucket (it was a long day) and this long navy vest so I wasn't just in my tank top.  The sandals were thrifted from the GW and the hat was one I purchased when Eugenia Kim did a design for Target.

I'm very excited to wear my patriotic cut-offs, for every American holiday and especially for the summer Olympics.  They are surprisingly versatile and a parade of fun!

Your kids are too too funny! Typical, it's like when you give them a fabulous Christmas present and they just play with the box! Sweet!

Tara said...

Ha! The dog would have been my favorite part, too :) We didn't even get to see fireworks this year, because I didn't want to stay up late enough to see them...a hazard of getting old, I guess!

I love those shorts! They will be PERFECT for some Olympic support :)
