With Labor Day comes great sales, short getaways, and some of the last beach days of the summer, but it shares a weekend with another thrilling holiday. That's right — the Saturday before Labor Day is International Bacon Day! It's the perfect excuse to chow down on one of the most beloved foods there is (as if you needed an excuse). However, there are stylish ways to celebrate bacon, and they involve no grease whatsoever. Of course, I recommend eating bacon while you wear these items.
What makes bacon so great, you ask? Oh, just everything! Bacon resonates with mouths and hearts across the globe, which is why it's celebrated internationally. Bacon is more than just a food — it's a lifestyle. So put down that "Kale" t-shirt, leave your fast-food shoes at home (oh, OK, you can keep those on), and pick up some adorable bacon gear this Saturday.
Unfortunately, there's only so much bacon your stomach can take (or is there??). These foodie accessories are here to save the day and ensure that your love for bacon is apparent to all who cross your path. From bracelets to quirky tees, these fashionable items will help proclaim your love so you don't have to.
