4th of July/A Pirate's Life for Me!

Fourth of July just so happens to be my favorite holiday of all time (well, maybe tied with Halloween since I obviously love to dress up!). I love fireworks and being outside, and I could not have asked for a more perfect day to spend with my beautiful friends! 

Unsurprisingly, I don't have a very patriotic outfit to share with you all. About the only thing in my wardrobe that isn't black was this red and white striped pirate bandana I got for a Halloween costume a few years back. It's kinda patriotic, right? But since I love pirates even more than fireworks, I thought it worked perfectly! It was also another excuse to wear my favorite lace-up little black dress, which also has a pirate vibe.

The highlight of my evening was running into a fellow pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow! Every year, he can be found wandering the Excelsior, MN commons area on the fourth, and I always look forward to running into him for a picture. :) He even stuck around to watch fireworks with me and my friends . Obviously we're a couple lucky wenches. A pirate's life for me!
