All About the Stripes

This week it is all about the Fourth.  Don’t hate me.  I’m packing up kids for camp, getting us ready for the holiday and I cannot stop wearing different versions of the stars and stripes.  OK, mostly stripes. #cantstopwontstop.


TD, aka my clone, decided to join in with her matching sunglasses and new dress. Can we talk about how she wears those sunnies and suddenly looks grown up.  It kills me.

V&Lstripeddresses Then The Comedian joined in the with her version.


Followed by Diesel photo bombing me.  This dog.  He’s my love.  I haven’t talked about it but we rescued all 112 bloated pounds of him two months ago and he has had quite a turn around.  I waited years for this guy and he’s quickly become my running buddy and stress reliever.  Blessed for real guys, every time I look into his sweet face.


The Modcloth Full Course Load in Cognac is one of my favorite travel bags. It fits books, magazines, snacks, anything you need for a day on a plane, train or car.  Plus, it rocks for all day errands with three kids. Truth.

Whenever I wear red, white and blue I like to play up one color in particular and just add touches of another.  Lots of red, equals subtle strains of blue.  This look has red in just a slight touch on the lips, toes and with that beaded bracelet.  It’s all about the subtlety and not overdoing it, which can end up looking comical or commercial.

      I feel like I’m so redundant in my stripes and navy looks lately so I hope people aren’t hating it. I’m so glad you like it!
      And I totally agree with the Old Navy tee. Advertising above the flag BUGS me.

    I am a sucker for an easy-striped dress and I own quite a few of them and so does my daughter. You and your little girls look beautiful and very Americana in your stripes. Happy 4th Vicki!!
