When I think of the 4th of July, an image of a faraway cabin, or of a wonderful picnic with family and friends comes to my mind. With a bounty of food and lots of kids running about, what could be better?
|The perfect cabin getaway. See more pics on the fab Bedlam of Beefy blog- with links to the architect!|
The cabin shown above is in Stockholm-- yet hey, all of us Americans originally came from somewhere else, right? Let's imagine that this one is nearby your own home-- & then picture just how many people could sit at that table! Now, are you already thinking about what will you wear? Here are a few ideas:
|The best dress I've seen all year. Wear this Eva Franco one nearly everywhere-- |
after you find it at Horseshoe in Ballard.
Be Fancy & Charming!
|For a more casual affair, I like this Fireworks dress from ModCloth|
|Pair with these Indigo sandals at Market Street Shoes; or even just a pair of flats.|
|...don't forget to grab these Nikki Jacoby earrings at Velouria.|
|Peering into the display case at Velouria-- ooh, ahh--- LOVE!!!|
|For the wee one. From Flora and Henri|
|Or this one: Including their Novelty Beach Pant|
|This is a Dockers look? YES! This man is also a real vintner named Andrew Mariani.|
Watch his video here and see more pics of his look and of his brother Adam's, too.
I think these clothes will fit in quite nicely with our weekend (especially given how
cold Seattle has been lately). Let's pack some of their wine, too!
|For your guy when it warms up-- try these retro inspired trunks by Frankie Four|
|He can pack his clothes in this new bag from Wood & Faulk from Portland.|
Check out Matt's blog, too. Writing about manly stuff for us all!
Actually, I want that bag to be my cabin bag, too!!!

Now for the food! Fire up the grill, make a few salads, pair with fresh fruit and corn on the cob!
