Fourth of July Style and Recap

I hope your Fourth of July was as wonderful as mine! I spent Sunday recovering by the pool and thinking about what I would say in this blog post. Luckily for you, I’ve figured it out and won’t ramble on for too long.

My Fourth of July consisted of Strawberry Shortcake made by yours truly, an orchestra playing old movie themes, fireworks, and quality time with my mom. It was absolutely lovely. We just sat outside enjoying nature and the beautiful country we were blessed to be born in. I thought about all the places on Earth I could be a citizen of and I still came to the same conclusion: I’m very proud to be a citizen of this one. That’s why I sport the red, white, and blue. And speaking of which, here’s a look at my festive style for the weekend’s occasion!

My skirt is from Cynthia Rowley, the sunhat is from Target, and the necklace and watch are from Kate Spade!

kate_spade_accesoriesI love to wear red nail polish for the Fourth! Normally, I reserve this shade for the Autumn months, but it matched Old Glory so well I just couldn’t help myself!

For those of you who may wonder, this is my natural hair color and my hair isn’t highlighted. During the summer, my hair gets little gold streaks in it courtesy of the sun. I save a fortune on my hair appointments!

I love the front of this Cynthia Rowley skirt. It has the cutest little slit that goes up the side. It looks really elegant when the wind catches it.

It was a really crowded event but well worth it. The orchestra is always incredibly good and there’s tons to do even if you aren’t into the music. My mom and I ate dessert together while my sister and her friend caught up with a few of their school friends.

A Fourth of July celebration isn’t complete until the fireworks have exploded and this year was no exception. After centuries of use, they’re still just as beautiful as they were the first time. This is truly one of my favorite holidays for many reasons but no matter how old I get, lighting up the sky is always the best part.

A Touch of Classical

Friday Night Festivities

ConcertI live in a slightly southern area of Maryland. By this I mean that people think they’re born southerners but really have no idea how far north we actually are. They embrace southern values and certainly love the country lifestyle of raising a family on lots of land, four wheeling on the weekends, and sweet tea.

One thing that many of us look forward to in the summer is the River Concert Series near historic St. Mary’s City. Its a lovely event that sits on the water. The orchestra plays lots of classical music and even a few new pieces. Every Friday night is a new theme. Last night it was Bach. Fourth of July weekend it will be Big Band music and the 1812 Overture in sync to fireworks over the water!
