Happy Fries Day, peeps. This day is probably the happiest day of the summer, dedicated to celebrating the king of all junk food… french fries.
Fun french fry fact - it is NOT French. It was a Belgian invention thanks to frozen rivers and hence, no fried fish. Americans when introduced to the delicious fried potato dish by the French-speaking Belgian soldiers, started calling it the french fry. Aren’t we grateful for the genius Belgian people! If it weren’t for them, we’d be living a less happy life.
No matter what you’re going through, fries help you let it out and then get over it.
And of course, when you’re happy, they make you happier.
So, obviously, these long sliced fried potato sticks are more than food. It’s a global endorphin-releaser. Not only do french fries taste good, they LOOK so good. That bright happy yellow is a sight to behold. All in all, they’re a great addition to everyone’s lives. The proof is in the popular quote ‘fries before guys’.
Time to celebrate, don’t you think? Of course, the plan is to chow down our bodies’ weight in fries. But for us fashion girls, you know, we express our happiness through clothes. Duh.
So here are 7 sunshine yellow or, as we like to call them, *french fry yellow* fashion pieces that will remind you of your favourite junk food all day. Yay!
