I know the fourth of July was days ago but I put together this outfit to walk the streets and have some American pride on the 4th. I rummaged through my closet away from home and did not find a single red piece to add to my fourth of July attire so, I added a touch of red to my lips & created what I thought was the perfect fourth of July outfit for Madrid (without going overboard). The stripes on my top reminded me of the American flag and the detail on the back is my absolute favorite. Being in Madrid there wasn't much to do to celebrate the holiday but, growing up I never truly celebrated it so it wasn't much of a disappointment for me. How did you celebrate the 4th?

Sé que el cuatro de julio fue ayer pero he creado esta vestimenta para caminar por las calles y tener algo de orgullo americano. Busqué en mi armario fuera de casa y no encontró una sola pieza de color rojo para agregar a mi cuarto de vestir para julio, he añadido un toque de rojo en los labios y creó lo que yo pensaba que era el cuarto perfecto de la indumentaria de julio de Madrid ( sin ir al agua). Las rayas en mi tapa me recordó a la bandera americana y el detalle en la parte posterior es mi favorito. Estar en Madrid no había mucho que hacer para celebrar el día de fiesta pero, al crecer nunca realmente lo celebraron por lo que no era una gran decepción para mí. ¿Cómo celebrar el cuarto?

  24. You know what I really like about you and your blog? You wear flat shoes! I walk everywhere, and when I read other blogs it really seems sometimes that the only way to be fashion forward is to be tripping around in 5" heels. You always look great, and comfortable!

    The shoe you're wearing here is 100% Spanish in my mind. I used to live in Barcelona and everyone wore them, from fashionable girls to their fathers, to children. I love things that transcend age and fashion!
