Fourth of July Apparel - Summer 2016


Red, White & Blue





Summer days, apple pies, clambakes, strawberry shortcake, barbecues, small town parades and fireworks all have a special place in American culture. Every year, we the people, look forward to celebrating our great country with fanfare, family, friends and culminating the day by watching a glorious firework display in a darkened sky.  The young and old eagerly prepare for the day with barbecues, lazy afternoons or games during the day. It is a grand affair and everyone is excited except for the dogs, cats and other animals that do not understand the crazy evening with bursts of color in a blackened sky.  Here are few picks to where on the 4th of July.  Happy 4th!


The 4th of July! 


July 4, 1776, stands in the nation's collective memory as the day America declared her independence from Great Britain during the American Revolution, more than a year after the events at Lexington and Concord, the Battle of Bunker Hill and Washington's appointment as commander-in-chief of the Continental forces.



Traditional









I.  Classic Top:  Choose a patriotic infused red, white and blue tee and revel in the tailored and simple beauty of the three colors.   Combine with white capris, shorts, red pants and deep blue jeans for a celebratory effect.


















"So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.  Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.  Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania! Let freedom ring from the snow capped Rockies of Colorado! Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of California! But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!  Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!  Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of Mississippi.  From every mountainside, let freedom ring" - Martin Luther King Jr.
