The city I live in happens to be home to one of the most famous Navy ships of World War II, the USS Lexington. I have visited the ship many times over the years since it's arrival in Corpus Christi (I even preformed in a play there once with my middle school drama club, but that's neither here nor there.) It was such a big part of my youth, that one of the very first things that comes to my mind when I think of our country's freedom and Independence day is this historic aircraft carrier.
So, I wanted to do something fun for the blog that reflected my love for 1940's Americana style. Although I was seriously tempted to dress up like Rosie the Riveter (what girl secretly doesn't want to do that at least once right?) I decided to take a more modernized approach to the classic style of the 40's.
My shoes are from Forever 21.
My sunglasses are by Ray Ban.
Thanks for stopping by again today...See you tomorrow. xo -Brit
