yes, april and august can be tricky months. the temperatures begin to fluctuate, a little bit of rain is thrown in for good measure. and frankly, we begin to get weary of our winter/summer duds. it’s time for a change, yet, the weather isn’t quite letting us transition to the next season. let’s face it, it’s time to keep summer strong. at least we’ll keep the season alive one outfit at a time.

today, it’s all about this lilly pulitizer tunic i trotted out at the beginning of the summer. this one has bell sleeves and jazzy gold sequins. take a look at a similar one here and here. bermuda shorts were just the ticket for a hot summer day in georgia. this pair by j.crew is several years old similar ones here and here. but i love the metallic sheen that sets it apart from its cousin the navy blue chino short.

 navy and white are a classic color combo that looks crisp and clean. notice how the gold undertones add a bit of glitz and glam. perfect for date night with mr. style. since i have my summer strong game on i added gold metallic sandals and navy blue wicker handbag that’s on sale. talbots always keep classic handbags on their roster. i just had a peek at their fall lineup – fabulous! can’t wait to share. but, ahem, back to today’s ootd. tassel and bead earrings are also going strong this summer. plus they’re so lightweight.

couldn’t resist sharing a few photos from the inside of the restaurant. these chandeliers are killer.

the entire restaurant has a cool vibe. isn’t this portrait of uga (uga is the mascot for the university –  a white english bulldog) the best?! living in a college town has its charms that’s for certain.
