Made In the USA

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY EVERYONE! I have to admit, that for the most part, I haven't done anything particularly exciting for July 4th in the past. However, this year I really wanted to make it special. I was hoping for a BBQ with american flag themed foods etc. I even made a pinterest board for all my July 4th inspired images, outfits, clothing, and food! Unfortunately, when I got my schedule for work this weekend I found out that I have work today. Apparently, I get paid time and a half for working on a holiday so I guess that's one upside: I get paid 1.5x minimum wage today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!!
I also found that getting dressed today was very difficult. Although I have been pinning about this day for some time now, I apparently never actually bought any apparel for the event. I'm kind of confused about how I still haven't managed to buy an american flag themed article of clothing since I've been lusting after them since they got cool with those Australian tumblr girls. Side note: did anyone find it kind of weird that australians were wearing the american flag? Just in general, why are non-americans so obsessed with this pattern all of the sudden. I thought foreigners hated america these days...
Here's another example, Brandy Melville. I'm pretty sure this company is based in Italy, yet so many of their items have the American Flag on it. And it's not just there to take advantage of the Fourth of July market; it's there all year! Actually, I've been lusting over this sweater for awhile now but never bought it because when would I wear a sweater with a large american flag? Oh wait, I know maybe for a fraturday or for watching fireworks at night on July 4th! I'm so dumb. 
I ended up finding a red striped croptop from my intense croptop phase last year. Unfortunately, I do not own any patriotic clothing that is work appropriate (aka isn't a belly shirt or a tight little skirt). So today at work I will be wearing all black because I HATE AMERICA! ... I don't, but that's what it's going to look like. After work, I'm planning on watching the fireworks with some friends and hopefully I will take some pictures so I can tell you all about it!
Also here is my pinterest link if you want to check out my MADE IN THE USA board. It's pretty I swear!!
