For those in the US, I hope you had a lovely 4th of July weekend.
It’s a week of Palm Prints on Elegantly Dressed and Stylish. I am a sucker for beautiful palm leaves and this week and sharing some of my styled looks with this very print.
We had a nice weekend as we drove around different neighborhoods and looked at some homes here for my brother and sis in law.
They may be interested in moving here as well. While out, we were close to an authentic Italian restaurant and saw no one was sitting at the outdoor seating. Could have been because the real feel was 100 degrees! Well, we braved the heat and had a wonderful dinner , mine was eggplant parmesan with a crisp fresh glass of white wine. We chatted, the waitress wore a mask, and it was a spontaneous decision, but fun!
We tend to find these restaurants where no one is sitting out and have lucked out twice!
Took my boy, Gibson to the vet on Friday, and Truffles certainly had a plan! She hid in the back of the SUV as the vet came out to retrieve Gibson to take him inside for tests. As soon as the vet left, she jumped up into the bed in our car. She knew where we were and that cracked me up! What moral support for Gibby!
We celebrated the 4th with my sister and niece social distancing in the back yard, while we grilled some fancy burgers and salmon. It was a great day and meal. We do have to comfort my little Shih Tzu Truffles, as she is so terrified of fireworks. We just cuddle close to her, as we’ve tried everything else and the Thunder jacket did not work.
This weekend we drove to Robbins Park, a beautiful park about 10 minutes from home. We took a walk there the other day, and I found it to be a perfect spot for photos. When we were in lockdown, we took many of the blog photos in front of the house, not being able to venture out, but now is the time and I couldn’t pass up this beautiful setting.
I am wearing a palm print dress in olive and the style is a 40s cut. I love adding straw bags to this print as it has a tropical feel. My Mango sandals in tan have been worn frequently this summer. The delicate necklace is one I recently purchased, as more of a day to day necklace.
Are you a fan of tropical prints?
