Cinderella is pretty solid proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life (though glass slippers probably aren’t coming in style again anytime soon – for safety reasons if nothing else). Still, we’re big believers that what you wear on your feet is just as vital to your outfit as what you wear on the rest of your body.
July 4th is one of our favorite party days around here at Block 37. Firstly, the color palette is already done for you (thanks, Uncle Sam) and secondly, you get to eat, drink, and watch colorful explosions in the sky with friends, family, and patriotic strangers. What’s not to love? To help you celebrate the U-S-of-A in style, we’ve put together a collection of our favorite red, white and blue items from across the Block 37 nation. Bathing suits, nail art, hammocks…color your holiday planned!
WEAR YOUR STRIPES

Odds are, you’re going to be spending the day in the sun. And even after the sun goes down, fireworks can be super bright, right?! As you can see, we’re really good at justifying a cute new pair of shades. But who needs a reason? You’re an I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T woman.
