"It will be celebrated...with pomp and paradebonfires and illuminationsfrom one end of this continent to the other"-John Adams (1735 - 1826) - on 4th of July Celebrations




Barbecues, apple pie, fireworks, parades and fun with family and friends is around the corner. Celebrating the United States of America Fourth of July Independence Day is always an exhilarating and exciting time.  Laughter, traditions and fireworks displayed across the darkened skies symbolizes our freedoms across the glorious land.  Whether boating, hiking, swimming or on a backyard deck it is essential to be patriotic.  So - just what to wear? Well, of course,  the hues of the day are red, white and blue capturing the honored flag while dancing through the dazzling festivities.  Here are some favorites to snap up before July 4, 2017!



The Parade Marching Top










I. Star Spangled Tee:   Finding a fitting shirt for the special holiday can be daunting. However,  any red, white or blue piece is firework spectacular combined with white jeans, shorts or capris.   Sometimes finding a red, white and blue striped number spells victory.   Otherwise, improvise with the colors on hand and be ready to display freedom with honor.

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated.
