The Fourth of July has always been a big holiday in my family. Aunts, uncles, cousins, all fifty of us gather for a fried chicken feast, croquet, horseshoes, and of course, Wiffle ball. There's a homemade dessert contest and fireworks to top it off. But my favorite part is that we usually dress up⎯and I don't mean fancy.
Let's just say my aunts have a sense of humor, and over the years we've done everything from Statue of Liberty crowns, 'merica flag earrings and boxers, tie-dye tees, and spray-painted blue and red hair (courtesy of my awesome cousins). But for those of you who would like to look a bit more normal at your own holiday shenanigans, I've rounded up some pretty patriotic pieces⎯classic stripes, Americana tops and bottoms, festive shoes, star totes, and easy dresses⎯all perfect for an all-American barbecue.
