June 7 and 9, and Sort of June 8

The dates above don't tell the whole story, but hopefully it will gracefully unfold as I write. Or not. Let's just see what happens, shall we.

June 7


We headed south to St. Marys, Georgia, an historic town on the St. Marys River. Apologies to St. Marys, but there isn't really a ton of stuff to do there, but it is the place where you would catch the ferry over to Cumberland Island. There are a few shops and restaurants, and some quaint, Victorian homes. I wore my Chicos shorts, previously seen, and the Serendipity top that has never before been worn after making.

After wearing it all day, I've determined that I need to remake it. Yep, it's cute. Yep, it's comfy. But I just never totally felt comfortable. It became AKA the "maternity" top, which is not a good look when you're in your 50s. I already have an idea on a remake though, so it will definitely reappear in another form.
Shorts: Chicos

One further thought about this top... I put my pj shorts on with it, and the shorter length actually looked better. The bad news is that I don't actually wear my shorts as short as those out in public.

And a couple of gratutious family shots...

June 8

Did you happen to catch my post yesterday? The one about Kyle's birthday? And I mentioned a new, never before seen dress? Backing up a bit, if you missed it, go have a little peek and in the family photo, and you'll see me wearing the red cowl neck top again. My clothing day went like this... swimsuit, red top with denim skirt (also me made, but not featured yet), swimsuit, new dress. It's just that there weren't any pics taken of the dress yet. I promise. Tomorrow. Really.

June 9

We hit the outlet mall today, and while the choices of shops was kind of disappointing, we did find some good deals. And luckily, the 4 of us that shopped all have similar shopping styles and tolerances. After about an hour and a half, we were done and headed to McDonald's for their new frozen lemonade drink. Yum.

And what did I wear? One of my favorite me mades from last year... a knit dress that is extremely forgiving and completely suitable when the you might have had birthday cake and donuts for breakfast. Might have.
Dress: Vogue 8575

  1. I am vicariously vacationing with you(lol) - that's about as close as I will get to a beach this summer. Love the top and really love the dress.

  4. Birthday cake for breakfast is completely acceptable! Love your photo collages--what do you use to make them?

  5. Thank you Elle. If I can't find red ones, I'll just wear black. I have a terrible time buying shoes that fit - it's almost a nightmare.
