I know it's weird to use an Italian word in a post about America.  But sometimes when you're going out with a bang, you also have to end with a vowel.  And all countries are intertwined anyway, even if our pizza and pasta are about as Italian as apple pie.  That said, today marks the last day of the U.S.A's birthday week.  So, I dressed for a proper sendoff in red, white, and blue -- and a little yellow.  Because no picture -- or fireworks display -- is complete without a splash of sunburst.  And what's an outfit if not a slice-of-life picture?      

Especially when it's a portrait of people enjoying apple and pizza pie.

Oh, we are a melting pot after all! Love the tie-dye! & the quilt summer frock is adorable! Some splendid style! Thank you so much for your comments! Of course, I adore them! I've been looking back at all of "Valentina's" romances. I know, it sounds like she really got around..hahahaha..but not really.

This past weekend we did have a massive storm of hurricane winds..and I live in did that happen? Trees, debris were down everywhere..lots of power outages. I guess some are still waiting. Thankfully, our power didn't go out. Even the library shut down. (and that never happens!) So not the kind of excitement you are wanting to happen. I hope things have been nice there.

So love your accessories! I hope the broches (which I can't spell at the moment) are doing well. I will try my best to incorporate some of those in my collages soon..if that's OK.

All the best to a wonderful summer!

Such a delightful post. Love these outfits! Such amazing shoes (love those toe-nails too). Pizza and apple pie! I think those two might be the best sellers' at a local pizza place here. Happy July!

What fun outfits for a send-off of America's birthday week!!! I love how your pale yellow hair flowers perfectly match your bag! The Howlite necklace looks super cool with so much detail. The Big Red Bow Brooch is soooo pretty and looks adorable with the blue dress! Ultra Americana, indeed. Lastly, the patchwork dress is stunning and perfectly compliments your handbag! The pop of yellow is definitely a "splash of sunburst"! 😃

you have such an interesting way of coordinating all these colorful accessories with the shoes, bags, and outfits. Everything is fun and upliftings. Since reading your blog, I've been going through my old costume jewelry, belts, and bags to see what kind of outfits I could put together.
