fridays with oscar Memorial Day Weekend
the temps have hovered in the low 90s all week long, so i’m going for chic comfort today with this lightweight skirt and top from opens in a new windowAnn Taylor. sleeves are having a moment this year, either oversized or puffed. the button cuffed sleeve on this opens in a new windowfeminine blouse adds character, as does the square neckline. the opens in a new windowflounced midi skirt with a front and back yoke is a dream to wear on a hot summer day and can be styled in multiple ways. i have a feeling you’ll be seeing this opens in a new windowskirt again, but it looks fantastic paired with the opens in a new windowmatching blouse. pop a opens in a new windowwhite blazer over the top, and you’re ready to head to the office.
these delicious strawberries landed on my front door yesterday, along with a can of whipped cream. guess what’s for dessert? who could waste these gorgeous, fresh strawberries?! off to the store, i went in search of angel food cake. strawberry shortcake is on the dessert menu this weekend. it’s a summer favorite that needs very little preparation. when i was growing up, my nana and mom always added sugar to sliced strawberries, which turned into a syrupy delight. but these days, i limit sugar as much as possible, so the strawberries went rogue with a shot of whipped cream on top. what could be easier to make?
when friends and family gather, i love to set up a beverage center where they can serve themselves. sun tea and cucumber-infused water are two of my summer favorites.
oscar, and i wish you a happy Memorial Day Weekend. summer has officially arrived!
