Who’s ready for America’s Birthday? The 4th of July is coming up in a few short days, and I can’t wait to celebrate with family, indulging in way too many hot dogs, cold beer and more French Onion dip than should be humanly possible to consume.
While I get giddy about all the food, for many Americans, it’s also a day to celebrate our freedom. Those festivities come in the form of parades and fireworks where red, white and blue are the colors du jour. Colors that normally don’t exist in my closet. Every year I drag out the same tired, blue and almost-red-but-border-line-orange shirt I’ve worn for the past seven years and call it a day.
My kids like getting donned up in festive wear, and when we recently went shopping for summer clothes, they both saw patriotic shirts and begged to get them for Independence Day.
Wanting to join in on the fun, I looked around for a cute USA-themed shirt that was actually some form of red white and blue, but came up empty.
So when the guys at Tipsy Elves contacted me about their Patriotic Line, I jumped at the chance to try out some of their products. I’d browsed their site one Christmas when we were invited to an Ugly Holiday Sweater party, but being that I waited until the very last minute, I didn’t have time to get any of their gems shipped in time for the party.
The two shirts I received are completely adorable! Here’s me in the Tipsy Elves’ Women’s American Flag Tank Top:
And this is the Tipsy Elves’ Women’s USA Tank Top:
I love the soft, good quality of the fabric of these Tipsy Elves shirts, and both hang really well. The cute cut around the arms is perfect for those hot summer days, but are feminine enough to not make me feel like I should try out for the JV football team. And while they’re patriotic, I don’t feel like they scream ‘MERICA!
Now the only thing I have left to do is decide which shirt I’m going to wear for the 4th. So I throw the choice over to you, dear readers. Since democracy is one of the foundations of this country, feel free to cast your vote.
