Oh Canada….family fashion

I know that Canada Day was so last week, but thought I would show you what I wore.  Please keep in mind that Canadians are pretty casual and low key compared to Americans when it comes to our country’s birthday.  It’s not that we don’t celebrate it, but we just don’t celebrate it like the Americans and sometimes I think we could take a page or two from their holiday celebration book 😉

We went out for dinner on July 1st and I overheard an American family remark that we were wearing Canadian shirts.  Besides another couple a few tables away, we were the only other ones dressed for the holiday.

Lady in Red

I rarely never wear red, but I will today because it’s Canada Day!

We’ve been invited to a neighbourhood bbq and have been told to wear red or white. You have seen my closet – I don’t own any red clothes! So I headed to the mall yesterday to outfit the family These are the shirts the family will put on today to show our Canadian pride.

Happy Canada Day!

Although our neighbors south of the border tend to be known for their celebratory nature, we Canadians bring out the spirit when we need to.

Today, being Canada Day is one of those days.

Fireworks, parades, flag waving – you name, you will find it anywhere across Canada Day.

I bought my kids Canada Day t-shirts (a first) and we are going to watch a parade (another first). We probably won’t stay up for the fireworks, but I think we will have had enough spirit by then.

Happy Birthday Canada!
