Summer Style- From Polyvore to Real Life #27

Once upon a time a mom had to attend a t-ball game in the midst of summer humidity.  Did she throw on workout shorts and an oversized t-shirt?  No!  She fought the ugly weather with a fun hat and some bright shoes.  The result, the mom was happy, the rest of the night after.

Memorial Day Weekend- Cemetery Service

I am so thankful to all the veterans who are there for us to honor on Memorial Day.  Freedom doesn’t come free, unfortunately.  And these men and women have served our country with honor and sacrifice for you and I and the rest of this country.
Remember today to thank a veteran and most of all, teach your children what their sacrifices mean.  If we don’t learn from history, we are bound to repeat it.

I Won’t Be Ruffled

I love this red shirt from St. Tropez (Nelly.com).  If you want to look sophisticated in the summertime, throw on a sweet little blouse like this one.  Add on some fuller cut trousers and take it to lunch.  Need an outfit for girl’s nite out?  Pair with some ladylike shorts.  Zip into a high waisted pencil skirt and make it office worthy.  Rain in the forecast?  Don’t get ruffled, just slip on the trench!
