Is It the (Long) Weekend Yet? Your July 4th Mood Board

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

A Monday that kicks off a four-day workweek is a Monday worth celebrating. Our sights are set on the prize of a long weekend and Independence Day celebrations, with visions of cut-off shorts, ice cream cones, and pool floaties. And what better way to get into the spirit of America's birthday than by trolling Instagram?

We found stylish snaps from a diverse group to create our very own July Fourth mood board. Check out Jay Z escorting Blue Ivy to an old school ice cream truck, blogger Krystal Bick's essential Americana pieces, and the Surf Lodge pic that makes us want to get on a bike this minute.
