An All-American End to Summer

September, we meet again. Today’s the big day — the first day of school! Let me tell you from experience, teachers dread this day just as much as students do. Let me clarify, it’s dread that the summer is over and a whole new year of stress is beginning mixed with excitement and anxiety over the start of a new year. But at this point, it’s mostly dread mixed with tiredness over not being able to sleep. I’m sure once the day gets going I’ll be back in the swing of things, but until then let me reminisce about the summer months by showing you what I did and what I wore this past Saturday.

This past Saturday, was jam packed with summery activities that, not until much later in the evening, did I realize were very American-esque and fittingly perfect for the end of my summer break. Hence, the title of this post.

First up in this all-American day, I wore this red, boxy, crochet top and denim shorts with a white tank underneath. Got the red, white, and blue down.

Next, my brother had a bbq with his friends that afternoon, which I forgot to take pictures of, so you’ll just have to trust me that that occurred!

Then, I headed out with some friends and I decided to wear my flat espadrilles which are red and white striped in the interior and blue with white anchors on the top. Oh yeah and I changed into Express jeans for the evening.


So what’s more American than wearing a red, white, and blue outfit, and having a bbq?


Going to a baseball game of course! Baseball is, after all, America’s favorite pastime. I went with two friends to see a minor league game at a ballpark that is nearby. We had these great seats right by 3rd base. I’ll admit I was slightly afraid that I was going to get hit in the face with a ball, but thankfully that did not happen. The weather was beautiful too. Not chilly, not hot. It was just right. Even Goldilocks would agree.

And to top it all off?


There were fireworks at the end of the game!

So when I took into consideration my outfit, the afternoon bbq, the baseball game, and the fireworks I really thought it was the perfect all-American end to my summer break.
