Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe that next week it will be Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer – where did August go? I don’t know about you but I don’t rush to put away my summer clothes and break out the Autumn gear.  I like to leisurely linger into Indian Summer by continuing to wear white jeans and sundresses.

Last year I did a few Labor Day DIY’s one of which was upcycling a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt, you can read that post HERE.  Today I am wearing that Maxi Skirt with a mustard-color blouse thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and Wedge Sandals from Target.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

If you are fortunate enough to have an extra day off, I hope you are enjoying it, but if like me you are back to work, I hope you are also enjoying it – at least it’s quiet.  Not only is it quiet, but it is raining and dreary unlike the sunshine and warmth of the weekend, it would have been a perfect day to sleep in!

I spent the majority of Saturday, 9 hours to be exact, in my closets sorting through items that I haven’t worn or no longer fit and I still have too many clothes!  I will be sending boxes to my girlfriend for her daughters as well as donating to Goodwill.

I am wearing two kloset keepers because first of all I love skirts and secondly, the side embellishments on this top is unique.

It’s finally Friday and the heat is on!

I am so ready for the weekend and tomorrow’s plans include clearing out my little garden because the mint has taken over! I want to add some basil, peppers and tomatos and get a few flowering baskets to hang around the deck.

It’s time to fire up the grill and spend evenings sitting outside, I love this time of the year!

What are your plans for the weekend?

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

After a wonderfully warm weekend the temperatures have reversed course and fallen back into Autumn, dropping down into the 30’s and 40’s!  Yesterday I was in shorts preparing for the pool opening and today I am wearing fall clothing – this is crazy.  The forecast calls for 80 degrees by Thursday so  we will be going from sweaters to sleeveless tanks in less than a week, I don’t remember Spring temps being up and down like this – do you?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

The weather so far this Spring has been two tone – warm one day, cold the next … sunny one day, raining the next…warm during the day and freezing at night.  This afternoon it’s expected to be warm which is definitely a relief because the past few nights have been extremely chilly so much so that we had to turn the heat back on.  I am not going to complain too much as there are states that are still dealing with snow and flooding which is far worse than anything we are experiencing.

In keeping with the two tone theme, today’s outfit is a combination of two trends:

Color Blocking and Black & White.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Why do we use the phrase, “smile, say cheese” when taking pictures…”CHEESE” really, isn’t there another word in the English language that makes you wanna smile?

#1 son is my photographer and all he does is point and shoot, he never tells me to say “cheese” or “smile or even “hold in your stomach” (which is obvious in these pics), so this morning I decided not to smile and this is what we got.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Before I begin, I want to say that I am thankful for my Bloggy friends, for their kind words and understanding of yesterday’s post it was truly a blessing – THANK YOU!  Life is so precious and fleeting that we should all stay focused on the positive, spreading kindness and love as we are more alike than most would care to admit.

Now today is a brand new day and mine started with a Green Smoothie made with spinach, almond rice milk and a banana but I must also have 20 ounces of coffee for the road. I am not a coffee snob nor a Starbucks drinker and have purchased coffee at WAWA, 7-11 and Dunkin Donuts, but the best is my homemade, flavored Java, this morning it was Melitta Hazelnut.

What is your must-have morning beverage?
