I hope you all have had a fantastic summer. I feel so blessed to have been able to go to Cancun for a last minute retreat with Bill and we just got back from our family vacay to Connecticut. Does anyone else feel like you plan and look forward to a vacation for over a year and then it’s over just like that?? Our kids live in TN, AR, DC, Austin and Dallas so getting them together is never easy!! Christmas or Thanksgiving each year and a family vacay are so important to us because with our blended family Bill and I really value this time together. I have kind of gone off the social media grid after my purse and identity were stolen and it was kind of nice just to focus on our fun time at the beach in Fairfield, CT and not worry about posting anything. But it is good to be back and getting reset to normal just in time for end of summer. I am always sad to see this season end because it just seems a little bit more laid back and our town is quiet because everyone escapes the heat – no traffic or lines at your fave restaurant. I am kind of late to show this wonderful skirt (similar here) but you might want it for your next vacation or just save it for Spring.
Well, I have a confession to make!!! I have been meaning to write this post for several weeks but go totally sidetracked when my purse was stolen. If you have any questions about what to do if that happens to you please email me. I do plan to write a blog about the steps to take when I completely piece everything back together. Anyway, of course this particular print is no longer available online, it might possibly still be in the stores however. I love this style and dark florals seem to be a trend that is here to start. All you need is a great Tee like this linen version from Sanctuary. It has a beautiful hem if you want to wear it out and it comes in several colors. I have worn it so many time this summer and I need black and olive. I have had so much fun with earrings that really make a statement like this flower from Bauble Bar. Can you really own too many pairs of sunglasses?? Love these pink cat eye sunnies perfect all year round. I also think that a straw bag is a must for summer shopping or vacation to the beach, this one is super roomy and very cool (similar here and here). And it can lay flat for packing!!!
Thank you so much for reading and bearing with me this summer as I got my life back together. You know I love your comments and would love to hear about your summer adventures. Hope you plan some vacations to a sunny spot this winter and can keep your summer style going all year round. XO Debby
