I’ve Got Your Back… Pack: Patriotic Sentiments

c600x416

So I’ve done some back to school shopping lately and I’ve noticed that they have put out a lot of clothing, shoes, and accessories that has the american flag on it. I’ve seen many times before some clothes that had american flags on them at stores but now it seems like everywhere I go, it is the ideal choice. Every time my family sees the american flag we shout “Merica!” just for fun (you have to imagine it with a red neck enunciation!). I don’t mind the style at all, I actually think it’s really cute! I even own a shirt with the American flag on it. I bought it for fourth of July but it’s so cute that I wear it any other day of the year.

I decided that today’s post was going to be about backpacks with the american flag on it because I want it to show you that you can do the american flag in a stylish way. Flag apparel does not necessarily have to be tacky, as with pretty much everything moderation is key. I found many cute styles from all sort of stores, price ranges, and designers. I’ve found many bags from designers such as Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs. I made sure to use all sort of backpack shapes so that you guys can get a taste of the style with each shape. I must admit that the American flag will look pretty good on one’s back.

What do you think? Could these be a trend?

FFF: Fab 50 Friday

FFF: Fab Fifty Friday $50 outfit
FFF: Fab Fifty Friday by teen fashion blog

For years I would go shopping with my mom around the summer time in search of the perfect white summer dress for her. She never has been able to find the perfect dress she was looking for and she would always get pretty bugged about it. I have to admit, I would like a white dress for the summer myself. I just imagine how pretty a white dress would look with the blue of the ocean water in a picture. Plus white is a color that looks really good against my mom’s and I’s skin tone.

While I went online shopping for today’s Fab Fifty I found this gorgeous white skater dress with a crochet like top. I fell in love instantly and started thinking about all of the different looks I could style with that dress. White is a color that you can combine with any color and it would still like fabulous. Instead of using some ordinary expected color, I decided to give the outfit a little edge by adding denim. I guess you could say I’m sort of a risk taker. Plus I’m glad I decided to do that because it separated this outfit from a lot of other different looks and made it a little unique. I really  like making things unique so that’s why I always to try and add a little flair to my outfits.

I found the white dress at Persun mall for $23.99 and I thought that was an amazing deal! I found the purse at Target for $8.74 and that was the piece that had me pair up denim with this dress. To match the purse I added a denim sandal from Persun mall as well for $15.99. The bracelet I found at Claire’s and it finished up the look really well. I love this look because I could wear it to the movies, go out on a casual date, I could also go shopping in this. 4th of July is coming up and this would be a perfect outfit to wear to a family
