Bold in red, white, & gold for July 4th..
I didn’t plan ahead for July 4th like everyone else did, but it is the days you don’t plan that end up being the best in the end. I called my best friend up and he invited me to cruise with him and his family around City Island and New Rochelle. I have never really been to those areas and was astounded by the beautiful landscapes I saw there. It was amazing and we were able to see a whole orchestra of firework displays all over city island. These places we visited made me want to get a car just because it is so close to my new home. I also didn’t plan my outfit but ended up finding something animated, very 4th of July, and oh-so-betsey as usual. I also could have worn this on fleet week but I got this suit too late lol. I looked like a sailor in my newly thrifted vintage sailor hat only I would call it “sailorette”. My Betsey Johnson regal 2 piece suit and American Apparel top complimented the hat and so did my choice of accessories like my vintage nautical earrings, necklace, and my red vinyl purse and shoes. I am sure people all over Glen Island and New Rochelle thought I was in costume (I get that all the time) but I love being animated and fun with fashion. My besty took some cool pinup-y photos of me throughout the day that was worthy for a “what I wore today” post so here it is!
