Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July! This year we are celebrating Independence Day the way we always do with a little family BBQ followed by watching fireworks from our backyard. To me, it is the perfect way to spend the  holiday! These firework shorts are also the perfect thing to wear for a casual BBQ in the backyard! Last week I featured the dress in a colorful version of this print and today, as promised, I am sharing these shorts.  One of the things I like about these shorts is the abstract firework print and also the elastic waistband that makes them very comfy so that I can eat as much BBQ as I want!

As I wrote in my post about the dress in the firework print, I really love that these shorts technically depict fireworks exploding in the sky but because the print is more abstract, they really could be worn all summer long, not just for the Fourth of July. The next time I wear these shorts, I thought I might opt for a yellow top to make the shorts more bright and fun for summer. For today's patriotic look, I opted for a white top. While there's no blue in this outfit, I added a fun American Flag pinwheel as a "prop" but you could add a blue bag or sandals to complete the red, white and blue color scheme!
