May the Fourth Be With You!

We’re celebrating Independence Day in the States on July 4th, imageand with it come all things red, white and blue. I’ve been wearing Sperry shoes since before college, and when I found these last summer, I knew they were keepers! Of course, the red, white and blue colour scheme is perfect, and the fact that they were super comfortable from the moment I slipped them on was even better.

I am not going to go watch fireworks this year, for two reasons:

  1. The dog is just a basket-case, and I hate leaving him home alone, especially since we’ve basically had a thunderstorm roll through every day for the past week and a half. He’s just so agitated and unhappy (to put it mildly) and when he’s unhappy, I am unhappy. It’s just no fun for me to be out somewhere having cocktails and watching the fireworks, all the while dreading what I will come home to.
  2. Friday is a work day for me! Since I am new to my job, I haven’t accrued much holiday time, and since the weather’s not supposed to be stellar, why waste a day off.

I will put on my Nantucket reds, a blue and white striped French sailors’ shirt and my Sperry’s and have a great day, regardless!4th

Hope you have a great 4th, no matter where you are!


  1. What a great outfit for the 4th celebration!
    Poor Connor- he has had to suffer through a great number of thunderstorms. I'm glad you will
    be with him for the fireworks. Enough of these rain storms already!!!! Happy Fourth.

    1. The storms here have been crazy! As I was driving home from the office today, i saw three HUGE bolts of lightning near my house. Connor must have been insane!

  2. I'm envious of your Nantucket reds. My husband has a pair, but I don't. Something wrong with that picture. '-)
    I do have the blue and white striped French sailor shirt. ~~~~~~~~ Happy 4th to you and Connor! ~ Sarah

    1. I love mine. I have had them for years. This is my favourite combo!

  3. Crazy weather here as well Meg! Love your Speery's and they go perfectly with your striped top and red pant!!

    Happy 4th! PS Great Fireworks Displays on TV including PBS.

    Connor gets scared no matter how tough he wants us to think he is!

  4. Hi Meg,
    Too bad you and Connor can't just pop over and visit with Jones and me.....Jones is so brave, doesn't mind thunder or fireworks.
    I've got my striped shirt on and espadrilles--does that qualify?
    Also, we have great fireworks at a distance--Disneyland is down the hill and about 4 miles south-- perfect view from backyard.
