Head to toe black on the 4th of July. Are we at all surprised though? I like that this star printed top is a subtle way to show a little 4th of July spirit without taking me out of my element. Although I have never been one of those super patriotic people, I have always been proud to be an American. This country may have a lot of issues to work out still, but so does every other place. I am thankful to have grown up in a country where I have the opportunities to pave the life I want to live. I am lucky that I grew up in a country where there is so much diversity and I have friends from all different backgrounds. I am delighted that I live in a country where I have the freedom to wear whatever I want, and express myself in ways that make me happy.

Happy 4th of July, friends. Stay Beautiful America.
