July 4th is always one of my favorite parts of the summer. Any holiday that involves BBQs, day drinking, and time off work is fine with me! I spent the weekend relaxing at the beach, sipping on some Watermelon beer (the best!), and eating lots of greasy food on my roof deck. It has killer views of the NYC skyline, the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower (which you can see here in some of my pics). To top off the weekend, I got to watch fireworks set off over Lady Liberty…you can’t get much better than that! I am certainly proud to be an American.
Of course, another major reason I love the 4th of July is because I get to dress up in red, white and blue. Who doesn’t love sporting a good ole’ American Flag?!
I headed out to the fireworks in my stars and stripes Converse high tops, an amazing leather flag fanny pack (yes, a fanny pack!) and a fun jean jacket with an Eagle on the back. Needless to say, I was especially patriotic this year.
I hope everyone had a safe holiday filled with lots of food, friends, and family!
Let freedom ring.
