The metallic clothing trend was huge for Spring 2016 and it is continuing into Winter 2016/2017. I have really enjoyed watching the Summer Olympics and with all of the excitement about gold medals I thought it would be fun to find a few metallic pieces to wear now and later in the year.
Whether you are going to a viewing party to watch your favorite sport or you are watching from the comfort of your own home it can be fun to show who you are rooting for by wearing your teams colors. Below is a little outfit inspiration for those of you who are rooting for the U.S.A.
The Summer Olympics happen every 4 years and it can be very exciting to watch the best athletes from around the world go for the gold. There 41 sports in this years Summer Olympics, but which sports are the most popular among viewers? I make sure to tune into gymnastics, swimming, soccer and track and field, but I thought it would be interesting to know which sports other people like to watch. I did some research and what I found is below.
What are your favorite Summer Olympic sports to see?
I love to spend time outdoors during the summer and one of my favorite things to do is to see a concert at a local outdoor venue. There are different types of concerts and you want your outfit to fit the tone of the venue. Below is a little outfit inspiration for the next time you go to a relaxing outdoor concert at a setting where you can have a picnic and refreshments.
Whether it’s a rock legend, a local band or a pop star summer concerts are a must for me. I love going to concerts year round, but it’s so nice to be able to be outside and enjoy live music while being one with nature. It is fun to go to big name concerts in a large venue, but sometimes I prefer going to a park to see a local musician. It is so nice to be able to bring a blanket, your own refreshments, a snack and enjoy the nice summer nights all while listening to your favorite band.

No Fourth of July celebration is complete without fireworks. I am a kid at heart and enjoy big firework shows (so much that I had them at our wedding), so I have always been interested in which cities have the biggest firework displays in the country. After doing some research I found 5 of the best fireworks displays in the USA and the list is below.
What do you do to celebrate the 4th of July?
1. New York City, NY
With over 40,000 fireworks the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks display is the largest in the country. The fireworks are launched from the Brooklyn Bridge and several barges along the Hudson River, known as the Macy’s Golden Mile. To add to the spectacular pyrotechnics the show is accompanied by the New York Pops Orchestra and Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
2. Washington D.C
You can’t get any more patriotic than celebrating Independence Day in our nation’s Capitol. There are events all day and before the fireworks display there is a large concert with celebrities, big name rock stars and a grand finale featuring various military bands. This is a celebration you won’t want to miss.
3. Boston, MA
When you go to The Boston Pops Concert Fireworks Spectacular you are going to see an amazing 20,000 pound pyrotechnic display accompanied by the legendary Boston Pops Orchestra. The music starts with the national anthem and then breaks into the 1812 Overture with real canon fire.
4. Addison TX, other wise known as Kaboom Town
Although there are only 19,000 residents in Addison year round about 500,000 people come to celebrate on the 4th. With live entertainment, an airshow and about 3,500 pounds of fireworks this party has been recognized by the American Pyrotechnic Association as one of the best firework displays in the country.
5. Philadelphia, PA
Why not celebrate our nations birthday in its birthplace? The party starts with a week long celebration that includes, outdoor films, live music, and so much more. It all ends with the largest free concert in the nation featuring some of today’s biggest artists and over 10,000 fireworks.
