July the Fourth

Hello my dears.
It's been a scorcher these past couple days!
Is it hot where you are? 
I am here to share with you how my fourth of July was spent.

This was my outfit from the Fourth of July.

I do wear a lot black in my wardrobe but recently these past couple months my wardrobe has been evolving. 
I am letting my imagination grow wider for acres and acres as to what I can put together for an ensemble. 
Though almost always these days my outfits incorporate hats. 
I really, really like hats.

Outfit Details
Frock: " Give It Your Toile"-
Blouse: Forever 21
Hat: My Sisters Garage Vintage
Stockings: Nordstrom Rack
Shoes: Go ( unseen) 
Bird-skull Necklace: Newbury Comics

At my home we host a lawn party with classic grilled hamburgers, steak and hot-dogs
soda lined up in barrels and a large american flag hung from the big maple.

Not only did we celebrate America's birthday but we also celebrated my cousin Kumiko's anniversary of U.S, Citizenship!

When the afternoon ceased I went to the famous Old Orchard Beach with some dear friends of mine and watched the fireworks.
I always think of fireworks as little faires lighting up the sky in swirls and star patterns.

 If you did celebrate the fourth of July I hope it was grand!
