ALL AMERICAN GIRL & LINK-UP

 "She was an American Girl!" Just love that song by Tom Petty. I always wished I was Italian, from a country in the Swiss Alps or Canadian after traveling to Canada and meeting my brilliant Canadian friends. However, truth be told I'm pretty happy to be a citizen of the land of the free. If I'm being super honest, the pride swells in me the older I get but that could also be due to the growth in my love of all things red, white and blue. I find myself pondering the idea to wear all things Stars and Stripes during our July beach vacation and after getting yet another Americana piece with this darling straw flag tote, I said "whoa," that's enough patriotism wear, lol. Or maybe not.
I thought it would be fun to make this a Fashion LINK-UP. You can link-up old or new red, white and blue!!!!! It doesn't have to be those colors, link-up all your fashion goodness. I thought it'd be fun to get some style or stars and stripes inspiration for the biggest day in the year for the land of cotton and corn!! 
My dear friend Shauna from Lipgloss & Lace is a huge fan of all things patriotic and I first fell in love with this tote in one of her adorable posts. 
It is the perfect All-American straw bag for Summer!




While I will for sure be donning some stars on my clothing in the next couple weeks, What I love about this outfit is that each piece can be worn with so many different things. 

The new piece in this ensemble is this cute as a button red cross front ruffle sleeve top. Perfect with just some white jeans and blue wedges. Throw in the purse and a trio of red, white and blue bead bracelets and I'm ready to wave the flag at the parade and watch some fireworks over the lake.
