    Monograms leave a lot to be desired when they spell out a word. i was a SAK all my life growing up,Then I maried a Kelley and the initial stayed the same. But I do not initial much ,only towels,silver,crystal and then only with the last initial! much safer because there is no word to figure and and tease about!

  4. Love the sandals, purse and white chinos. Use to wear polo shirts years ago, but stopped wearing them when they went back out of style or fashion. I thought they looked to manly on me and changed to tee shirts and graphic tees. Have a great weekend.
