Americana Anthem: What We Spy for July Starters

In the spirit of America lies a deep-seeded sense of pride and pursuit of opportunity for all as seen by accomplishments of our forefathers and mothers. We celebrate the rich history that this young nation has contributed to the world in the name of liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and while she’s not perfect, she sure is passionate and determined to try for those who call her home. We’ve selected just a few starters for July to fully embrace the beauty of old fashioned Americana.

Sing Us The National Anthem

By the Anthem we really meant Lana Del Rey’s sultry and nostalgic tune reflecting a world where she’s Jackie Kennedy and A$AP Rocky is the suave President of the United States to look up to. Summer’s in the air and baby Heaven’s in your eyes is the way we want this month to feel, starting with this tune we’ll be blasting on repeat in our summer playlist.

Hat’s Off To The Summertime

A wide-brimmed beauty inspired by the little island of Nantucket, a stroll underneath the sun from Cape Cod to the streets of Manhattan isn’t complete without this elegant yet so functional shape. Not to mention, the oversized bow exudes the fanciful notion that everything bigger in America is better.

Leave a Classic Taste in Your Mouth

Nothing beats an ice cold bottle of America’s most cherished drink enjoyed all over the world. The vanilla raisin-like flavor is a contrast to the subtle citrus burst you’d get from Pepsi, if you weren’t entirely sure of their difference! Sip on that fun little fact.
