Wear To – Fourth of July

Keeping it calm, cool, and collected this Fourth of July with a breezy tank, comfy shorts, and simple sandals.  For our Fourth plans, we’re staying local (in the nation’s capital, of course), and will be attempting to avoid the massive influx of tourists for three days while still partaking in the holiday festivities.  Luckily, we can skip trekking downtown this year, and instead, can see most all the firework displays in the DMV area from the comfort of our own roof.
