It's another year, another long busy weekend to party it up in North America. July 1st is Canada Day and July 4th is July 4th in the United States of America!! Both days are of course very, very important and significant days in both countries. Up here in Canada, events are lined up for the weekend and it is almost like the official opening of all the summer events and celebrations, especially in Toronto. First comes the Pride Parade which is huge, flamboyant, colorful, fun, creatively organized and very much attended by so many people from all over. It starts on the 30th of June.

So how do we celebrate these days? I say we because even though i reside in Canada, i will always see the US as my other home too because i spent a decade of my life there. Lots of beautiful memories.

Canada day or July 4th weekend calls for lots of barbecues, small parties here and there with family and friends, then the fireworks begin at night. Canadians often travel to the cottage, up north to spend time with family and friends.

These special holiday weekend is what has inspired my look in the picture. One thing i have learned from the past is never to underestimate a party or event. When we are invited to a barbecue party or family get-together, i know we all say to ourselves, "It is just a barbecue so i don't have to dress up." Or, "Oh, it is family....". How about being polite by making a little effort. Simply dress accordingly.  Sure, it is only a barbecue, but other guests will be there too so try not to do the flip-flops. Why not liven up your casual look by accessorizing with slightly bold or bold jewelries but minimize.

I decided to do the lovely print top because to me, it says- summer all over it and it works for day time during the barbecue and night time for some fireworks....and more partying. The distressed denim shorts are super comfy and chic. I even love the fact that they are studded. Sets a party mood.  So i put on some comfortable heels  to look like  i am ready to party, have fun, happy to be there and appreciate the invite :).

Do i look convincing?

How do you celebrate independence day in your country? I would really love to know.

Happy Canada Day to all Canadians all over the world and Happy July 4th to all Americans wherever you are!! Enjoy!
