Jules and I were the kind of kids who always loved dressing up. Not just for fancy occasions, which are a different type of fun; I’m talking about making our own Halloween costumes, enthusiastically participating in every day of high school Spirit Week, wearing pink and red on Valentine’s Day, dressing as our favorite characters for movie premieres…you get the picture. Sadly, it’s been awhile since I’ve worn a proper Halloween costume or dressed up for a movie premiere, but I still feel compelled to wear patriotic attire on the Fourth of July. Here are a few classy, understated, totally grown-up ways to rock the red, white and blue this weekend. No flag t-shirts here!
Who else likes to dress up for holidays? American friends, what are your plans for the Fourth of July?
