summer style land's end

are you ready for a jet tour through the rest of 2018? coming at you fast and furious is july through december. it is so hard to believe that 2019 is only two days away. 2018 has been memorable in so many ways i think i just might want to bottle it. mr. style and i celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary on august 6th. a few short weeks later i turned 60. both are momentous milestones.  i have to admit the years are flying by at breakneck speed. certainly, i’m aging with each and every year that comes and goes. but i’m reminded with each passing day just how precious life is. it’s meant to be enjoyed and savored at every age and every stage no matter how many wrinkles stare back at us from the mirror.

so without further adieu let’s take a look back at july when the skies were blue, and the temps were hot. and one of my favorite holidays made an appearance – the good old fourth of july complete with corn on the cob, hamburgers, and fireworks! let’s not forget ice cream. or better yet, homemade ice cream.

who doesn’t love stripes? this collaboration with Lands’ End allowed me to put my love of stripes to the test. nothing better than a striped dress similar here, a pair of snazzy tennies and gold-tone tote.

tweed blazer, silk button down, denim

fall fashion is in full swing come september, but the temps typically don’t oblige with the influx of wool, long sleeves, and boots. it’s always a balancing act on the blog to showcase the latest and greatest fall items while keeping one eye on the changing weather.
