Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

Summer is is flying by so quickly can you believe tomorrow is the last day of July!

This outfit which I wore last Friday was totally thrifted from GW Boutique and was very comfortable for the weather.  Last week there were several temperature fluctuations that ended with a torrential rain storm on Sunday.  Motorist returning from the beach and shore were stranded on major highways for hours.  This week we are in store for beautiful, low humidity days perfect for anyone taking a late vacation to the beach.

Hello Friends – do you want to make the 1st Monday of the summer better?

Then do what I do, think of  your favorite summer songs, you know the ones that you just have to hear every year no matter how old it is…the ones you only listen to when it’s hot outside or when you’re on vacation?

Okay, now download, stream or pull them up on Pandora, turn up the volume, then sing along loudly in your office or cubicle – sike…don’t get fired…or carted off to Bellevue,  just sing quietly and chair dance!

This is the list with link to my six favorite summer songs.

Sundress – C.o.C.o Brown & The Phat Cat Players

Summertime – Will Smith

Under The Boardwalk – The Drifters

Celebration – Kool & The Gang

Hot Hot Hot – Buster Poindexter

Heatwave – Martha & The Vandellas

Summer songs and summer wear seem to go hand-in hand, hence my #1 jam, so when it’s hot all day everyday, I prefer a sundress.  This is one of my favorites thrifted from GW Boutique.

Conversation this morning:
Hubby:…whoa…you look good….
Me: what!!?…
Hubby: no, you just don’t look like you are going to work
Me: what…too much?!
Hubby: no…no…I just said, you look good

Okay, so he said, I looked good…but what…too much? That’s it…it’s official….today is Tropical Thursday and I am on vacation – MENTALLY!!! NO WORK – .NO WORRIES….sssh just don’t tell anybody – I want this dream to last all day!!

I remember seeing this tropical print dress at Goodwill and immediately thinking about sitting on a beach, with an umbrella drink in my hand. Unfortunately there are no plans to do that so I figured I might as well wear the dress and daydream about sitting on a beach with an umbrella drink in my hand. Thanks to the soaring temps today it’s helping to feed the fantasy.

Dress – Goodwill// Sandals – Bare Feet Shoes (last season)// Bracelet – Rainbow Shops// Ring – Avon // Earrings – jewelry box

Okay…hand me a drink, it’s 5:00 someplace!

What…too much!!….

I can see the ocean from my back yard!

ok, at least I have an umbrella over my head!

Once again we have been blessed with a beautiful, sunny day and to top it off it’s FRI-YAY!! Traffic this morning heading north was light because most people are heading south to the Jersey Shore – thank you my friends!! This afternoon I may not be so lucky with the south bound traffic heading to the Delaware beaches. Where ever you are headed this weekend I hope that you have a fan-tas-tical, fun in the sun time with tropical drinks that have tiny little umbrellas in them – be safe my friends!!
