Red, White and Blue Monday, Independence Edition

On Mondays I hook up with Pinning! at A Night Owl Blog/Baxtron{Life}. On Wednesday, it's Oh, How Pinteresting! at The Vintage Apple.  

Need something red, white, blue and sexy to read this Independence Day week? Try "Bomb Pop." It's only $1.50 for your e-reader. 

Now, continuing with our Memorial Day theme, I bring you the U.S. Independence Day pin-ups. Using a Bomb Pop as a fashion accessory is Ms. Kate Upton. Her uncle Fred is a lawmaker from Michigan, but not the one who can't stand to hear the word "vagina." 

Speaking of suggestively phallic-shaped objects...

If it's not too hot where you live, this could be your perfect July 4th outfit.

Or this.

Ms. Emma Stone, whom I loved in The Help and Easy A ('cause I'm always up for a riff on The Scarlet Letter, and if it works in some Huck Finn, so much the better!), knows how to rock a 4th of July ensemble. 

Maybe I just think this because my hubby, Tit Elingtin, was in the Navy back in the day, but guys can also rock the hot sailor look.

Of course, the ladies can do it pretty decently, too.

I love the curves on this Army pin-up girl. Her old-school stockings are way cute, too. 

Happy Independence Day! What are YOU pinning?

Independence Day is a big deal for me personally this year ... since I arrived in Long Beach (my new home) on July 4th, 2011. Think I'll be finding a boat to go watch the fireworks from and celebrating my own personal independence while I also celebrate the USA's emancipation.

Your post causes me to wonder: "What on Earth shall I wear?" LOL
