Green & White for Summer

Posted on: August 10, 2014

I love this skirt I thrifted and how crisp it looks paired with white ….

Of course,  adding a patterned blouse in the mix in those color made it more to my liking…

Linking up with VISIBLE MONDAY


I am not big on button up shirts, but love them tied at the waist in a casual way to fit my lifestyle.

I also intend to wear them for more layering options in the cooler seasons…


In fact I could help thinking in Fall, I could tuck this shirt into this skirt, add a cognac belt and boots and be done…

Then, of course I thought I could just pop my cognac leather over this tied version with cognac boots for Winter…

So, is that where I am, dreaming of how to change my outfits into Fall versionsA?  

It can’t be helped, I am so longing for Fall to begin for dressing purposes only, as I love the carefree time of Summer and no homeschooling.


It doesn’t happen often , so I point it out when it occurs…

Most of this outfit is thrifted, the Lands End blouse, skirt and the purse are all from Good will..

Dear Readers, Today is the final weekend my dear son wil be home as he goes to VCU Saturday…5 more days with my guy… don’t know why this seems so hard. Well, yes I do….It’s not just about my missing this incredibly kindhearted, comedian , but the knowledge of the loss his brother and father will feel… These brothers use to say they were twins born at different times and have been so close.  I know that this is going to be very hard on my youngest as he is facing being the only child left at home… Tears well up in me as I type this… I just hope that his father and I do a great job of enjoying treating him to the pleasures of being an only child….That will be a new adventure!  


I am grateful for the closeness of my family and the relationships my children have built with each other.

I am grateful that my son is so excited about going to college and starting this venture that he’s dreamed of since he was 11.

I am grateful that my husband took the car and van in for tune ups this week (that van has to go from VA to Boston in another week or two!)

I am grateful my daughter is searching for the right living situation in Boston and is waivering between two …

I am grateful that my husband has had great success at work and that we wil be able to set both our college students up the way that makes us comfortable…

I am grateful to my husband how hard he works for our family and for being a great provider, allowing me to be at home.

Oh, I love a long summer skirt like this, you look wonderful. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

Very summery! Looks great with the hat!

I am visiting from Visible Monday. Niceto meet you!x Wow, I love your beautiful minty outfit, all the items are beautiful! I am sorry you are all going to miss your son so much- we just left our Father-in-law in Northumberland and he is always really sad when we go as we don’t get to visit more than about 4 times a year and he’s quite lonely and I felt terrible and am really going to miss him!I love your stream of gratitude though-that’s what I do when I am feeling blue. x

The aging parents are harder to leave than the child spreading their wings…. Being lonely is tourgh one. 4 times a year is a blessing and I am sure not easy to do, Yes, my online Gratitude jounal at the end of my blog posts has been very beneficial to my levels of joy! Thanks for stopping by…

Love this look on you, the green skirt is very pretty with the striped top. I love a feminine skirt like this! Love the hat as well.
from the link up,

please stop by, jess

Mint is definitely a great color for you! I’m not a big button-up shirt fan, either, but I like the horizontal stripes and the tied waist.
I can’t even think about Fall right now. I’m so far behind I’ll never die LOL!


Oooh, I love the idea of cognac with this color! I’m doing the same thing…already planning out fall/winter outfits with things I’ve recently purchased. I really don’t want summer to ever end, but it’s fun thinking about the cute outfits to come… 🙂
