21 Jul Turning Heads Linkup- Mustard and Olive in the Hot Summer
How are you faring?
Today we decided to do a photoshoot in the morning, and captured pictures at a local park called Robbins Park.
It’s a beautiful park with lots of Crepe Mrytle trees, roses and grassy areas. We finally thought to go out in the morning to do photoshoots, as it is much cooler than waiting until the afternoon. I wore this same outfit to lunch, and boy, there was sweat on my sweat, I am telling you! Cool materials such as cotton and/or linen are a must nowadays. We did have a heatwave, but it still is hot here in Charlotte NC in July! Been having to take our walks in the morning, first thing.
Let’s face it. All the hair does is flop. Goes flat after a bit of time in the sun and humidity. Another reason to go first thing in the morning for photoshoots. I do my hair in hot rollers, it’s good for the pictures and then flop.. or I put it in a bun/ponytail.
I wanted to pair this Target mustard flutter sleeve top with my favorite old cargo pants in olive from Loft. I have had these pants or at least 7 years , and have them in multiple colors. I wanted to keep the neutral look with some gold threaded espadrille from Franco Sarto.
We had a nice weekend as I mentioned yesterday at Morgan Ridge Vineyard, had lunch out by the lake at a place called Port City Club, so there were 2 outings this week. My mom and we are more comfortable, and we go when no one else seems to go- early afternoon. At Morgan Ridge, we called ahead and they reserved a table and had our orders for lunch. We had some “hot dogs” with us and they were fine under the shade of the table and umbrella. Slushy wines were so good and we enjoyed some jazz music. We hadn’t been there in a few years, so I asked about the goats that were normally behind an electric fence. It seems that they all passed ( over 20 yrs old) except for one girl I kept trying to catch up with.
