Tell Me I'm Your National Anthem: Fourth of July

Happy (belated) Fourth of July everyone! Ever since I was little, the fourth has been one of my favorite holidays. Unconventional, I know, but I just love the fireworks, family gatherings, and American pride of it all. Plus, who doesn’t love a good red, white, and blue combo? Today I’ll be showing you my outfit for the fourth. Here we go! (Sidenote: These were all taken on location at our hotel. Is it even real?!)

Charming Charlie Dress // Jack Rogers Sandals
Brighton Purse

When I saw this dress at Charming Charlie (conveniently in the Fourth of July color-coded section), I knew I’d have to get it for my celebration of the fourth in Orlando. My Jacks were perfect for walking around outside to see fireworks. This purse is so cute with nautical details and can easily go from casual to dressy.

It's been so great to spend my first three days in Orlando with my sister best friend Meredith. We both participated in the optional ballet intensive and roomed together. She moved for the rest of the week, but she's only two floors and a few rooms away, which means I can see her from my balcony. Nothing changed. And BTW we love our Jacks.

Our fourth festivities consisted of driving to Celebration, FL for their well-known fireworks display. We ate dinner, walked around, shopped, ate more, and spent some time with our moms and good friend Abby.

There was a Hello Kitty?

The fireworks display was amazing, with all kinds of shapes, colors, and effects.

All in all we had such a great time. It was a great break from our ballet madness and a free night before the insanity of true nationals began. Stay tuned for posts all about my week here in Orlando!
