fourth of july

fourth of july is my second favorite holiday (first is new years eve. duh). so safe to say it was a very eventful day. mine and anthony's great friends ian and maddie made their first trek down to baltimore from pittsburgh! we picked them up from the bus stop on wednesday night and had so many fun things in store for them.


the best way to get in the patriotic spirit is to, of course, wear red, white, and blue! i was so excited to wear these high-waisted red shorts i thrifted a few weeks ago. and i picked up this little bandana at the dollar store a couple days ago hahaha. i was determined to wear one for fourth of july! i have no idea why!

        

the four of us braved the heat and headed to downtown balitmore celebrate this holiday. the 4th of july seemed like a great excuse for us to get all decked out and red, white, and blue and day drink. we had sushi for lunch and then walked over to a cute little record store and shopped for a while. we got some cool CDs. i picked up a fleetwood mac greatest hits, the format (fun. before they were fun.), and a dave matthew's band album. they're anthony's favorites and i needed some good car music for roadtrips.

      

ian and maddie are the greatest and cutest and funniest people evaaaaa. we used to hang out all the time in pittsburgh, so me and anthony have missed them a lot this summer. we always have the craziest times together. we toured around baltimore for the day, trying not to get lost in the massive crowds, and enjoyed good food and lots of beer in our bellies. it was a great day to celebrate america! :D

the temperatures were crazy high, but the sun was shining so i couldn't complain! i decided to go with this light tank from target because it was simple and cool. also, the maryland humidity makes my hair go ca-razzyyy and that's why you will see a lot of top-knots and headbands when it comes to my hair. even with relatively short hair i don't like to wear it down! (any tips for other hairstyles that are good for the summer heat?)


okay so come on, how stylish are these two?! its ridiculous! maddie's dress is from h&m and her shoes are from forever 21. ian's polo is ralph lauren and his denim shirt is from burlington.

      

we ended the night with fireworks and stayed in, played card games, and ordered pizza. it was so good to hang out with great friends and just catch up and be silly. i swear the four of us are so weird together. it's the ultimate double date.

 


the four of us went to rehoboth beach today for more fun in sun! they don't see much ocean over in western pa. ha! hope everyone had a great 4th of july. can't wait to see your patriotic outfits.
