Happy Fourth of July!

Happy 4th fashion dish readers! I love the Fourth of July, there’s something fabulous about celebrating the holiday in New York City. Not only does the atmosphere change, no matter the heated temps, but everyone’e in it together, smiling, wearing red, white, and blue, and BBQ’s can be smelt all over. Unfortunately for some this year the 4th falls midweek, so instead of the traditional luxurious long weekend, it’s a brief taste of fun, and then most head back to their offices to finish off the week.

However, I find the briefest moments to be the most fun, so while a long weekend of celebration sounds nice, the 4th is about spending time with friends, indulging in delicious food, and together celebrating this fantastic nation. So, fashion dishers don’t allow the midweek blues to interfere!
I started the day off with a delicious breakfast at San Ambroues with an old friend. But, this afternoon I’ll be headed to the village for a late lunch that promises to last into the late evening, for friends, fun, and food. (Delicious food!) I’m thinking, since the temps are reaching the nineties to ditch the workout wear for something a tad looser and add a bit of red, white, and blue. Below of 5 favorite looks to take the 4th from drab to fab. Celebrate, have fun, and keep it chic, xo.
