4th of July: The Red, White and Blue Packing List


The 4th of July doesn’t mean declaring independence from good style. Whether you’re heading to the coast for some beach time or celebrating with friends at a backyard BBQ, here are some ways to inject a little red, white and blue flair into your family’s outing.

Penny Scalan Travel Gear: The Wheelie and lunch bag from Penny Scalan Design is the perfect way to declare your dependance on good taste and style. Compact construction with high impact design, the kids will love the easy portability of these must-have travel companions.

Snap-On Swimwear: The original bathing suits with snaps will make beach side changes a breeze. Snapping Turtle Kids swim collection has ingenious stainless steel snaps and beachside resort inspired collection that will turn up the red, white and blue spirit at any Independence Day celebration.

Kate Spade Shoes: Think you’re the only one celebrating. Not so fast. Keds launched a capsule collection to celebration Kate Spade’s 20 year anniversary and these inspired little foot pleasers were the result. Crisp in white and red stripes, your toes will thank you long after the last fireworks have gone out.

Summer Shades: Striking a pose no matter where you head on the 4th will come naturally to your little attention seekers with these shade essentials.

BB Stars Water Shoes: These adorable water shoes will become their go-to pair for the summer. With packaging that can be used for sea shell collection or as a wet bag for your valuables, the outside is just as adorable as what’s on the inside. After all, these aren’t your average water shoes. The straps can be mixed and matched to switch up the design whether you’re into stars and stripes, graphic black and white, or the camo print.

Tom and Teddy Matching Swim: “Gone swimming” will be their motto in these classic coordinating men’s and boy’s swimwear. Tom and Teddy designs the most adorable printed suits that will have everyone asking where you do their shopping. We love this bright red and white fish option to make this Independence Day the most festive yet.
