How was your Fourth of July? If you ate one too many ice cream cones and you’re suffering from a sunburn, you’re not alone. The Fourth of July is a fun time, but it can also be an emotional one. You’re surrounded by friends and family, there are 3,000 parties to go to, and you’re decked out in your red, white, and blue to celebrate the glorious U.S. of A.
Of course, celebrities also got in on the festivities. Just like us, they shared photos of their Fourth of July bashes on Instagram. There were lots of chic outfits, pool parties, and delicious goodies galore. We may not have been invited (sniff), but at least we can pretend we were when we look at their pics.
See how celebrities celebrated the Fourth of July:
