American girl


Happy holiday weekend to my fellow Americans! I had the day off today (as did most people?); I very much appreciate having a three-day weekend! Independence Day has always been a favorite holiday of mine simply because of the food. I'm neutral when it comes to fireworks (I worry about everything that could go wrong when I watch them and get annoyed when people shoot them off on days other than the 4th, but I love watching the big shows). I definitely prefer to spend this holiday with family, which is something I realized after spending the past three Independence Days away from home. I guess that makes this holiday the same as all the other ones, lol. Anyway.

To get in the spirit, I wore my new dress for the first time. I like how the polka dots mimic the look of stars, plus it's blue and white which is perfect. To add in some red, I finished the look with my red sneakers from Taylor Swift's Red Tour. You can't even tell that there's writing on them until you get close to them (the North American tour stops are printed on them). I'm not big into tour shirts so these were the perfect alternative.

I hope you all have a very happy and safe Independence Day!

P.S. I've been having issues with my eyes recently (dry eye), so you'll see a lot of pictures with me in sunglasses until they stop being red and swollen.
