Happy day before the Fourth of July!
I feel like I have to share a quick political opinion: America is awesome in many ways, but this country was built on the graves of Indigenous people, by enslaved Black people. Even now, Indigenous and Black Americans continue to be heinously oppressed. The "founding fathers" talked the talk better than they walked the walk, and so have their successors. American ideals are on point, but those ideals still have a looong way to go before they become a solid reality.
With that said, let's celebrate the progress we've made so far! Woohoo! Fireworks!
Halfway through June, I asked Jo Donofrio of August & Rudy Vintage to collaborate with me on a summer lookbook/playlist with the theme of FREEDOM! Awww yeah. We each picked four items from her shop, then I matched songs to her choices and vice versa. You can listen to the mix on YouTube (if you're willing to put up with the ads) or check out the songs one by one...
