On America's Birthday

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

The anticipation felt at the start of summer is one of my favorite memories from childhood. Summer consisted of long, languid days spent swimming, roller skating, and riding cruisers at the beach. Nowadays, it means getting out to enjoy local festivals, long bike rides on something other than a cruiser, and going on occasional road trips to places I love.  Like previous years, I went to a local street fair to enjoy the food, watch the parade of people stroll by in their best flag-inspired attire, browse the wide array of vendors, and watch live music.  It gave me an opportunity to wear my new favorite silhouette - the fishtail (a.k.a. high-low) hem dress, which gives the best of both worlds in one piece that manages to be both revealing and covered up at the same time. I also got to break in my Sam Edelman Louie boots, which I'm pleased to report were still comfortable after about 2 miles of walking. I'm now convinced that a 2-3" heel might be my new daytime staple. Not only are lower heels more restrained in their glamour, but they're infinitely more practical and comfortable, which is ideal when you're on your feet for hours.
