Red, white, & blue

In the spirit of the July 4th holiday, here are a couple DIY flag projects that I came across on Pinterest.

Wouldn't this be cool to do with some scrap wood?

cool idea for old pallet this would be cool in the America room!  

Or make this table? The plans can be found here.

Or decorate a room like this? Love the planked wall behind the flag.

We are spending the Fourth with friends at the beach in Ogunquit, Maine.
Here are some patriotic outfits I might pack for the trip:

top: J.Crew (last year)
necklace: here from J.Crew Factory 
shorts: J. Crew Factory (an oldie but a goodie from about 5 years ago)

sweater: here from Banana Republic (teachers: we get 15% off!)
necklace: here from J.Crew Factory in a different color  
shorts: American Eagle Outfitters (from a couple of years ago)

clutch: originally from J.Crew Factory but currently here at J.Crew in different colors 
sweater: J.Crew Factory (this past spring)
shorts: here from J.Crew Factory
scarf: Forever 21 (it will be a sad day when it is no longer appropriate to shop here...)

It is the perfect excuse to dress from head to toe in red, white, and blue.
Happy 4th of July!
