Happy Monday and welcome to the last week of July! My fun birthday celebrations are done, so I am focused as my summer style marches on.
From now until the middle of September, the summer heat becomes a real struggle for me.
At the end of August, I am done and ready to move on to fall. So, I am attempting to enter this time with more optimism and fun as my summer style marches on.
By focusing on the enjoyment of styling different looks, I can have more fun with the end of the season.
So, let’s look over my recent summer style and how I put the outfits together….
SUMMER STYLE MARCHES ON IN CHINOS
SIDE NOTE: When I am wearing these BZEES sandals then you know I am going to be walking a distance. They are the most comfortable sandal for my hammer toes to walk in.
I wore this outfit to church and we go to a large church. There is a lot of walking to and from.
These are the relaxed chinos from Talbots that I purchased at the beginning of summer and I the color is called cantaloupe (They come in 13 colors).
They have been a great, cool, lightweight, comfortable summer pant.
The scarf is also Talbot’s from last summer and goes so nicely with the pants.
At the same time as the pant purchase, I included an ivory tank and that is what I am wearing underneath the ivory linen Banana Republic Shirt.
Banana Republic has some lovely items in the SUMMER SALE…you might check it out…great colors too.
Now look at these cute new jackets from Talbot’s as they begin a slight transition to the new season….
SUMMER STYLE MARCHES ON WITH GOLD
For us warm palette ladies, gold is the metallic we go to the most!
I love this ruana from Talbot’s so much and was able to get it early on during a sitewide 40% off sale.
This is the Linen Lurex Ruana, and is a fabulous piece to own when you want to cover your arms. The linen keeps it light and airy.
The metallic gold makes it more of a show piece.
I am wearing it here for a dinner out with a chocolate brown tank, Eileen Fisher kingfisher blue pant, and a gold necklace.
I purchased before I began my healthy eating plan and wish I had it a size down, but that size is sold out now…I still like it and will use it often throughout the year.
My summer style marches on in these Aerosoles Ballet Flats purchased on their website on sale.
This is the Romy ballet flat in vegan gold, and it is currently $30 if they have your size.
It Is a great way to go from casual to casual chic!
I also found it at DSW….but it does cost more….Romy Flats.
I don’t make any commissions off of the Aerosoles site, but I have to be honest and show you where the better deal exists.
SUMMER STYLE MARCHES ON IN THE KITCHEN
Before I give you a new recipe that I like, I had to show you these.
Do you know what they are?
I had no idea, so I spent time examining them in the produce section recently.
They are called RAMBUTEN…a fruit from tropical regions. Read more about Rambuten.
The answer to what you are thinking…Well, did you buy it?… is no. But, I would love to hear if any one is a fan! Please share.
At almost $4 a pound, I did not want to risk it without knowing more.
I recently made this vinaigrette, and I like it for my salad…it is perfect for the WW app and has excellent flavor…
WHISK OR BLEND TOGETHER:
3/4 cup EVOO
5 tablespoons of red-wine vinegar
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced or grated
3/4 teaspoon salt (I like the Himalayan salt)
Ground pepper to taste.
I keep it in the refrigerator in a air tight jar and use a little on my salads. Very nice and fresh.
Thank you for joining me today as my summer style marches on!
How is your summer style marching on? I know the heat can put a damper on trying to look our best.
I just feel better and smile bigger when I take the time to look my best despite the heat!
Hope you will return tomorrow…I have something different and hopefully fun!
