Summer is often packed with events, invitations, get-togethers and you have to decide what to wear. The first big decision might just be an invite to a July 4th barbeque or picnic. This year why not stand out from the crowd in your 4th of July dresses. After all, it is the anniversary of the declaration of independence from Great Britain in 1776. Many patriotic displays, town parades and family events are organized throughout the United States. Typically a great deal of emphasis is on the American tradition of political freedom , and traditionally lots of watermelon and hot dogs get consumed as well as the American flag displayed outside homes. Some communities arrange for fireworks often accompanied by patriotic music and on NBC, the famous NYC Macy fireworks display gets televised as it has been since 1976.
Think back to prior years when you wore all three colors with some stars thrown in to look patriotic. Ok for a kid and then maybe you graduated to white capris and only a red or navy tee. Nothing wrong with that but wouldn’t you like to look just a tad different? And what if you had a really full day scheduled with brunch with your friends, then a family block barbeque and later in the day, a romantic dinner with your loved one. No time to change and so you really have to prepare.
How can one outfit get you through all occasions?
Dress up your July 4th outfit and slip on a chic summer or maxi dress and change your jewelry and accessories. I’ve always loved this approach for 4th of July dresses. Add a denim jacket and a pop of color in a patriotic color with this easy wrap bracelet or the cranberry star earring: Here are a number of necklaces you could choose from to vary your outfit.

July 4th is a very special day for me in that I gave birth to my daughter in 1968. For the first 6 years of her life I told her that firework displays were for her birthday. But then she learned about Independence day in school. She also became a very independent person early on. Who knew we would one day design jewelry.
