Eclectic Kurves Americana

Happy 4th! Time for having bbq's and sharing beers with great friends. Yes, Independence Day is almost here! Now, I'm not necessarily the poster-child for super casual for this Holiday...I'm not either! Ha. You gotta know yourself, right? I'm expressing my own Independence boo!

Getting into the patriotic mood was easy with these 3 pieces costing me $50 total! This look is perfect for a dressier day event! The texture on the dress adds interest, and makes it look like it cost more than $22. I added this cute star bag for a great pop of color (and because it's freaking adorable). 

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."

I've never really entertained patriotic colors as a styling tool. I LOVE red, but just recently started loving blue, and embracing white as a great neutral. Let's be honest, white was not an option when my kids were super small...nope.

I love what are flag colors stand for, and feel thy resonate with my personality. I persevere daily. In life, their are many obstacles to get you off your path, but I stay vigilant. Looks like I really connect with blue :) Do you?

Enjoy the long weekend! Be safe out there!
