The 139th Independence Day is upon us. Time to bring out the roman candles and sparklers and light up the streets. Here in Austin we have various events to commemorate that fateful day America gained its independence. The 4th of July celebration down at the Nook Amphitheatre, Willie Nelson 4th Picnic and the Symphony at auditorium shores are all examples of fun filled gatherings where everyone can experience a festive 4th. Not everyone has the space, time, or resources to execute their own party, but these Austin activities provide fun in excess. The auditorium shores is expected to draw at least 100,000 this year! And you’re going to need an outfit to keep you cool, but it summer, you don’t want to forget to make it fun!
The city has a lot to offer, but the lakes will be bustling with just as many bodies. Boats upon boats will be floating across the sparkling lake as people soak in the weekend with a few beers and barbeque. Just today I was picking up a few things from H-E-B and noticed numerous coolers, meat, chips, and packages of Millers and Buds being hefted down the conveyor belts. While you’re out there be sure to dress cool and be safe! Loose fitting clothes will allow you to move about the boats with ease and also, you’ll look cute while doing it.
Perhaps the one thing better than Independence is barbeque food. But although we look forward to burgers, hotdogs, and all the dressings, we are also aware a major part of the day is dressing up. The colors of the day are well known: red, white, and blue. And you want to find your own creative way to incorporate them into your outfit while still dressing appropriately for our considerably warm Texas weather. Red white and blue come in various colors and can easily be turned into a sophisticated outfit fit for a boat, a park, or a backyard.
