Stars and Stripes

This post might seem way too early to some, and a little too redneck to others, but today was my last day at the middle school and that has me thinking of summer!  And what screams summer like something with the American flag plastered all over it?  Sadly, I do not own a single article of clothing with the flag on it, but after hanging out on pinterest for hours at a time, I'm pretty confident that I should own something and even more sure that I can make something pretty cool by myself.  But, until then, here are a few neat pieces that have caught my eye.

What didn't make the cut, but I want to own?  A swimsuit!  All the pictures I found with girls in swimsuits were a little too aggressive for my taste, and I'm pretty hard to shock.  Maybe that should tell me something about girls who wear American flag swimsuits, but I'm choosing to ignore any hints the universe might be throwing at me.

In other news, I'm going to the lake this weekend which means big time thrifting!  No, we don't have a lake surrounded by amazing thrift stores, but there is an old school that has been converted into an antique shop and I'm hoping to drop some dough on some amazing vintage pieces.  It'll also be nice to be thrifting in a different state/town to see what the locals have to offer.

Do you have any favorite clothing pieces with the American flag on them?  Do you like anything that others might feel is over-the-top or ridiculous?
