After writing two and reading probably a dozen blogs about patriotic themed dressing, I had raised the stakes for my 4th of July outfit. It was over 100 degrees here, so I had to be practical. I ended up going with an alienated Vietnam Vet turned anti-war "Born in the USA" theme. It was pretty high concept. I wore an American flag peace sign T (Target), dove earrings, red and white plastic bangles, army green cargo shorts and my dad's dog tag.

I love these little studs, you can wear them with anything and they were only like $30. I don't think these ones in particular are still available online (I got them from Piperlime), but there are lots of other similar dove pieces in the collection. I love that I could get in on Marc Jacobs' bird motif this season without a big investment on something from his mainline.
I'm no nail artist like everyone else on the internet, but I thought I did a pretty good job free-handing the tips of my nails. I should have probably gone out and gotten a truer blue glitter, instead of this blue green I had, which ended up looking more watermelon red and green than patriotic red and blue. Either way they're summery.
