Casual Weekend Wear

Posted on: July 6, 2015

Sunday was my daughter’s 24th birthday,

and I knew it was going to be very hard on me to be away from her.

In order to finish graduate school in two years, she needed to take a Summer 

Semester , so she is back in Boston…


In order not to let our separation on this day get me down,

I made plans to give my daughter’s college loft bed frame to a dear friend’s

8 year old daughter, hence the need for casual wear.


I wanted to wear my new Liz Claiborne Utility vest and of course a dark bottom for putting together a bed frame and crawling on the floor, so it was simple to find a thrifted printed tank with both the blues and tans to tie it all together.  


I finished the look off with my Target find clearance floral sneakers, 

and a headband I bought several years ago at a festival.  

Dear Readers, I really did choose the right thing to do today, as it felt wonderful to make a difference in the life of a little girl today.  Giving to others truly is a wonderful gift to oneself!  


I am so grateful that my daughter was in good spirits today and in the spirit of self care was heading out to dinner in a cute town she discovered recently for dinner at Panera and a french crepe at another location in the shopping center for dessert. 

I am grateful that my husband so readily agreed to help in my good deed of the day and in fact did most of the work and seemed to enjoy it as much as I did. 

I am grateful that we finished in time to go grocery shopping at BJ’s before they closed. 

I am grateful for Summer and outdoor grilling as we made a favorite of my daughter’s (cause anything with bacon is her favorite) barbecue chicken, bacon , tomato and sharp cheddar sandwhich with corn on the cob.  

I am grateful that when I told her our dinner plans that she giggled and wasn’t upset that she wasn’t here with us.  She knows it was her mother’s silly way of feeling closer to her, as this was the meal I make for her every time she comes home.

I am grateful that this week starts my time with my niece for the Summer!

I really like that you wore a cute top with the outfit! Love it! jodie

Yes, the top with ruffled bodice feminized the look just enough for my liking, as did the lace yoke on the utility vest…
