In honor of the Olympics kicking off today, my sister Lauren and I have come up with a “game” to be patriotic and support Team USA throughout their time in Sochi. Presenting…
The game is simple: wear red, white, and blue everyday during the Olympics. Since that isn’t as easy as it sounds, here are a few “rules” to help.
- Wear a combination of at least two patriotic colors every day, from February 6th – February 23rd.
- Be extra patriotic on Fridays — wear all three colors. Also, crazy American props (gold medals, bandanas, hats) are encouraged.
- Stretch the colors as necessary, aka blue is not limited to just navy blue; it can encompass all shades, but must be worn with either red or white per Rule #1. If you don’t have a lot of red, white, or blue, please wear maroon or cream and wash your clothes for the sake of others 🙂
- Incorporate gold, silver & bronze into an outfit on medal days in support of your favorite sports or athletes. Again, props are encouraged (brooms for curling, ice-skates, bobsled?)
Finally, take pictures! We’ll be posting pictures of our progress and creativity on Instagram and Twitter, using the hashtag #USAdressday. It’s a family affair: follow Lauren, Molly, and I on Instagram to see what we’re up to.
