Dress up for Patriotic Holidays

4th of July Face PaintIn America, our patriotic holidays are a time to gather together and celebrate some of the people, ideas and events that make our country special and bring our hearts close to home.  Even on Memorial Day, a justly somber holiday, we do celebrate the lives and sacrifices of our soldiers.  Nationwide, parades, parties and family gatherings are held, bringing us close with our friends, family and neighbors to share our pride at being Americans.

What better way to show your love for your country than dressing the part?  Why not get into the spirit with special accessories, a patriotic looking outfit or even face paint?  Every time I see a sweet little child walking down the parade route, waving a flag, dressed in red, white and blue – it just makes me feel good.  And since our holidays coincide with good weather and vacations from school and work, it’s the perfect opportunity to sport a red, white and blue swimsuit, sunhat or clam diggers.

Patriotic Swimsuits

Deux par Deux Mimi Les Swimsuit

Item #1:  The Red, White & Blue Swimsuit

Memorial Day, 4th of July/Independence Day and Labor Day – all great swimming holidays!  Playing in the sprinklers, poolside or at the beach, kids look dandy decked out in patriotic and nautical styles.  Red, White & Blue just says SUMMER!  Like the Mimi Les 2pc Swimsuit from Deux par Deux.  Any red, white or blue suit can fit the bill, and sailor styles are especially cute on summer holidays.  Even a solid colored suit is great, and you can accessories with stars & stripes flip flops or a cute hat.  Which leads me to…

Item #2:  A Cute Hat

Well, it’s sunny, right?  Gotta have a great hat to keep the sun off tender cheeks.  Might as well look fantastic in the bargain.  For example, the Red & White Trimmed Wicker Hat from Brums.  Fedoras are all the rage at the moment, and no wonder!  This lightweight summer hat shades her face and looks completely cute.  A simple red & white hatband matches any patriotic outfit and goes through summer looking cheery and fresh.

Item #3:  Accessories

Any cute decoration will do.  Like this cute wicker basket purse, also from Brums.  She can carry her sunscreen & lip balm, a snack…or maybe other beachy take-alongs.  What about cute hairthings, socks, sandals and jewelry?  And let’s not forget the face paint.  If it’s not already a family tradition, try face painting for sunny holidays.  The kids love it and it’s so festive!  We like the Klutz Face Painting book, for quality paints and easy instructions.  Free-hand a star, flag or other design on cheeks or make fake tattoos.  Just make it fun!

Item #4:  Red, White & Blue Outfits

All-American.  Gingham picnic checks, stripes, solid colorblocks.  There are a huge amount of choices.  Don’t wanna go all-flag-all-the-time?  How about Gingham or nautical outfits?  Still looks crisp and fresh, and they are more versatile.  Then really go for it with the accessories.  Want a more patriotic look? How about the
