Fantastical Friday: Stars & Stripes

So the Fourth is almost upon us & I thought it might be nice to do a little outfit inspired by the occasion. I might have drifted a bit into steampunk, but well, I like it, so there. 😀 I thought the goggles might make a great headband, keeping my hair out of my eyes for the traditional grilling (I don’t have bangs btw, haven’t since I was a little girl) & the shoes were critical to help weave the bits of steampunk into the outfit. All of these lovely items were found at Amazon from various vendors.

Grill in Style

Some of my fondest memories are from family gatherings for a grill out. I could play badminton for hours with my siblings & their children. It’s time for a bit of fun in the sun! I can hardly wait for this evening’s celebration, with the kids running around squealing with glee. I can’t help it, my favorite fireworks have always been sparklers, may be overly simplistic for some people but for me it’s nostalgia to the umpteenth degree, LOL. I have a huge family, 6 siblings & some others we claim as our own who might as well be blood. It’s really too bad I somehow lost my badminton set, oh well, maybe next year we can have that as part of our Independence Day celebration, at least prior to the wondrous fountains & charming sparklers after dark.

I put together a lovely ensemble for the festivities. While I really like the cutoffs that the model is wearing with the maxi dress, I really wanted to add some patriotic flair to the whole outfit so I went with the flag leggings. On a whole I don’t as much care for the leggings but they do add that special something for today’s holiday. I tried to keep the accessories simple too, last thing you need when playing with a grill is your jewelry interfering with you playing with that fire! Everything in this collection comes from OASAP, one of my favorite shops. 😉 I hope those of you out there celebrating today have a wonderful & safe holiday.
