Red, White and Blue

The Fourth of July has got to be one of my favorite holidays in the US. I love the atmosphere, the fireworks, the festivities, the incredible sales (shopping!). Bearing in mind the historical significance of this very day from a variety of different viewpoints (freedom/independence attained, but a lot of bloodshed followed by decades of cultural insensitivity), I still very much enjoy how people get together in true american spirit to don the national colors and celebrate and commemorate how the Land of the Free came about. It very much reminds me of Singapore’s National Day; it reminds me of how we celebrate with pride for our country. Also, I’m a HUGE sucker for themes and coordinated colors. I love it when everyone has an excuse to wear outfits/decorate with the same colors. For people who adore putting outfits together, like myself, it gives us the chance to raid our wardrobes and throw items together to show our individual styles whilst keeping to the theme and matching everyone else in color! It’s not everyday you get to wear red, white and blue on a daily basis! So here’s a little Independence Day inspiration for you:

Gonna end off with this picture of me and my Starbucks S’mores Frappe I got just now with extra EXTRA whipped-cream (no extra charge), courtesy of this super awesome barista.
