619 blogIt’s one of the best times of the year with some of the best activities. There’s the picnics, the fairs, sparklers, barbecues, fireworks etc. Basically the Instagram photo opportunities for the Fourth of July holiday are endless. And with endless activities you should have a standout fashionable ensemble that matches the sparkler that you are.


Denim screams America to me and a good classic blue denim can get you far on the 4th of July. This Thread and Supply Denim dress is the perfect blue for your outfit, pair it with the Free People Bralette, and a snazzy pair of red heels for a truly stunning outfit.


For a slight preppy look try the Everly Ruffle Hem shorts. These shorts are perfect for every day wear but will be amazing for your red, white, and blue look. Pair it with a Wishlist Reversible tank and the Qupid Comfy slides. Throw on some blue accessories, your sunglasses, and you are ready to celebrate. Be sure to grab a denim jacket to wear in case it gets cold while watching fireworks.


For a classic look, try the Moa Moa USA racerback tank and a good pair of denim. Pair this Americana top with a festive red O2 denim skirt, or with flare denim jeans in a dark wash. And of course, reach for your white converse to complete this fantastic and classic look.


For a free spirit inspired look, try the Free People Sleepy Eyes Brami with the Thread and Supply Paper Bag High Rise Pants. Then add a casual pair of slides and maybe throw on a red bandanna to tie this look all together!

Hopefully, these four looks will inspire you for your own Fourth of July look! This is a fun holiday and you should have fun with your outfit! Make sure to head to to shop American Flag apparel and check out our Instagram for some great styling inspo! Have a Happy Fourth of July everyone!

Happy first day of summer people! Known as the summer solstice, today is the longest day of the year and the official beginning of summer.  We’re so excited for this season to begin and want to take full advantage of all the sunlight’s benefits!

For me, summer holds many memories, roadtrips and camping with friends, days spent in the water of our local lake, sand in my shoes from walking the beach, and (most importantly) family gatherings where copious amounts of barbeque is served with an array of side dishes. Oh gosh, you can’t forget sun tea!!! No summer is complete with out it.

Summer also reminds me of fireworks and the 4th of July! A daredevil at heart, I spent a majority of my youth tampering with sparklers and poppers during 4th of July celebrations. I would write secret messages in the air, light four sparklers at once and doodle out designs, or be “that kid” and incite popper battles with my cousins. I have matured since my youth (I swear) and no longer partake in such shenanigans. Now that I’ve entered my older, “adult” years the idea of just relaxing on a blanket with my friends and watching the fireworks from under the St. Louis Arch sounds perfect.

The Americana trend is absolutely huge right now, you can find a bit of red, white, and blue on anything from a pair of denim shorts, to tops, sneaks, and even scarves!

Here are just a few of our favorite 4th of July looks:
