Lazy Hazy Days Of Summer

 

It’s one of those days. You know what I’m talking about. It’s mid-week, in the sizzling heat of July and I feel like today is the day for nothing special.  It’s truly a lazy, hazy day. After a quick run to the grocery, a hello to you all, I’m going to call it a day. Maybe I’ll finish reading my book for this week’s book club meeting. By the way, we’re reading ” The Women In The Castle” by Jessica Shattuck. It’s a very good read and I would highly recommend it.

Weekends were definetly made for the maxi dress. 

Remarkably, the style and simplicity of a maxi dress can take you from poolside to the dining room seamlessly with style and ease.

Amazingly, the great thing about a maxi dress is that it is the art and the canvas for your look.  When styling it you need only add the accessories.

Front Porch Sitting

I just love a front porch. In fact I love all porches period. Since, I was a young girl, there has never been a better place for wiling away a summer afternoon. Friends, family and ice tea while swinging in the front porch swing. Or you could simply rock your troubles away in front porch rocking chairs. Fortunately, I am blessed to have two front porches. And the upstairs one recently got a facelift.

The Long And Short Of Summer Shorts

Do You  Hesitate About Wearing Shorts?

Here’s the thing: Many ladies of a certain age exclaim, “I can’t wear shorts!”  My question is, “Why not?”  They’re comfortable, and cool. If you are wearing a walking short, it is basically the same length as your summer skirt. So, the issue is not the shorts; it’s how you’re styling them. Styling them as a woman not a teenager requires a bit more thought than merely throwing on any top and a bottom. Now, let’s take a look at how I recently styled the same pair and top two different ways.
