Hello friends and Happy Monday!
I hope you enjoyed the weekend and that you had nice weather.
Outfit and What’s Goin On
Boy, it is hard to believe it is the end of June. I wonder what has improved since early March, and do keep up here and there with the news a bit, only in print. I will read Maria’s Shriver’s “Sunday Morrning” and also the New York Times newsletter, “The Morning” a few days a week and excuse myself from the news on the TV. It really kind of sets the tone in the morning, and I am trying to help my mom in ways to create a less stressful environment. We talk about things, discussing them on the deck with our coffee in the morning, but are not overloaded as we once were.
We had a nice weekend, taking mom to one of the restaurants on the Lake, with tables far apart. We both enjoyed crab cakes, which they are noted for, but were surprised to not see masks on the waiters. North Carolina Gov Roy Cooper issued a mask order for last Friday. We enjoyed the atmosphere which felt a little strange, but also welcoming.
We also took a walk at a nearby Greenway. My Shih Tzu, Truffles was on full alert! She is an explorer and also one that looks out for the squirrels and bunnies. She missed a bunny by a few inches, and later made a squirrel do a backflip off a nearby bridge ( it wasn’t a far drop). But she was in full form, and my boy, Gibson backs her up. We were all laughing and enjoying the walk.
I wanted to wear a casual 4th of July outfit and will share another look tomorrow as well. I had a good time combining this new tee with dot details in this periwinkle blue with my Denizen white skinny jeans. They are soft and a bit lighter than my other pairs of white denim. The top is in my usual XS for Soft Surroundings and I did a half tuck for style.
The Uno Alla Volta glass necklace was gifted to me a few years ago and I enjoy taking it out for the holiday. I exchanged my Sam Edelman white stappy sandals for these Zara strappy sandals, as I liked the square toe and the strappier front a bit more. The heels are a comfortable 2.75 inches.
How will you dress for the 4th? Do you keep it casual?
Thank you to Soft Surroundings for gifting me this cornflower blue top. *c/o all opinions are mine and truthful.
