for the 4th, the whole fam damily went to a festive evening soiree. my dear friend and fellow blogger julie of everyday embellishments and i took our first outfit picture together. i see julie ALL THE TIME and this is the first time i broke out the camera to commemorate the event. she's a gem. and a great seamstress. and a phenomenal thrifted and re-fashioner. she's lucky i hang out with her. i've been finely crafting this level of laid-back underachiever for years. she'll cramp my style.
plus, 4th of july means red white and blue! i love that color combination! but for the rest of the year red, white and blue looks a little much(unless it's the 1st tuesday in november during an election year). sort of like a christmas sweater in january. or velvet in july. or a perm past 1992.
julie went for polished, i went for bohemian. doublemint twins! not really.
