How to Show Off Your Patriotic Style

Jul 02, 2014

The Fourth of July is the perfect time to show off how proud you are to be an American. So toss your black hoodie aside and take a look at these Independence Day fashion alternatives. It's all about the red, white and blue, baby!

Proud to Be American

Every year, clothing stores across the country try to cash in on the abundance of American pride. The only problem is, there are a ton of ugly t-shirts out there that you wouldn't want to be seen wearing. That's where Old Navy and American Eagle can help you out. They both have their own US lines with great shirts, shorts, hats and more. They're cheap and look great with shorts or a denim skirt. Hit up their sites at www.oldnavy.com and www.ae.com.

Star-Spangled Sandals

If you're heading to the beach this Independence Day, why not slip into some star-spangled sandals? Score yourself a pair of American flag flip flops at your local Old Navy or a similar retailer, but if they're not your thing, you can just as easily put patriotic pride in your stride with red, white or blue sneakers.

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
