This is first week I've spent entirely at home this summer and I have to admit, it's been pretty nice. I'd almost forgotten what normal feels like. I'm so happy to be going into a nice Asheville weekend at home too.
We also had a little excitement in our backyard the other day!
I've lived in Asheville for nearly 13 years and had never seen a bear before this! It's actually pretty common in these parts. But when you look up and one is hanging out ON your deck feet away from you, it's freaky. Most eventful evening the Hubs and I have had in the 'hood in awhile.
But I digress, let's get back to my favorite Friday subject... FASHION! I shot this Fashion Friday the other week when I was in the Outer Banks with my family. On our last night we went out to a fun family dinner and I wore this combination.
It was super breezy so my hair and the fringe on the shirt didn't want to cooperate, but you get the idea. 🙂
As much as I love dresses, I've also been experimenting with fresh and dressier ways to wear shorts this season.
This shirt actually went with a lavender suit I used to wear many moons ago. I love re-purposing stuff like this.
And can we talk about that purse for a moment? It is my new FAVORITE summer piece.
My Dooney & Bourke purse is a fabulous aqua color that goes with nearly everything I wear in the summer. You can hold it, cross body it or wear it on your shoulder. It's lightweight and fits so much for it's size too... because y'all know I don't travel light.
It's also made out of this fantastic luxe nylon fabric that resists stains and is ideal for traveling.
New purses make a girl soooo happy. 🙂
It's part of the Windham Collection if you want one yourself!
Happy shopping! I hope you have a beautiful weekend doing things you love.
