Sarah Stright-Hartley: Headed to the beach? Cover up in style!

Sarah Stright-Hartley: You can be patriotic and fashionable this Independence Day
The Fourth of July happens to be my favorite holiday. There is something about the gathering of people from all over sitting together for hours just waiting for fireworks to light up the sky for a few minutes. The sense of American pride is amazing and I'm always happy to be a part of it. Patriotism runs high, but that doesn't mean you need to wrap yourself in everything red, white and blue.

Sarah Stright-Hartley: If your life’s a beach, pack wisely
This week I'm heading off on a much-needed beach vacation. During the vacation, we'll also be standing with my sister and brother-in-law as they renew their vows after 10 years of marriage.
