and it’s home again, home again, jiggity jig. what fun to visit minneapolis this past week. but there’s nothing like home sweet home. oscar and i are out and about early this friday morning, welcoming the weekend with a cup of joe. today, it’s all about my sandals as they were the inspiration for my ootd. tan and white is a classic color combo especially during the summer months, so i’ve paired white shorts with my go-to denim shirt. then coordinated the accessories. notice the texture that comes in with the handbag as well as the canvas shoes. this is what gives this outfit spit and polish. next time you’re coordinating an ootd think of texture as you would color and let it add the zing to your outfit in the same way a pop of pink would. one of my all-time favorite belts (and a few of my readers – apryl, you’re still in the will) is making an appearance today. some of the crystals are disappearing from the scottie dog from years of use, so it doesn’t make it into the rotation as often as it once did. danggit! this belt is next to impossible to replicate but my style tip would be to look for interesting belt buckles. and white shorts? i’m certain most of you lovely ladies own at least one pair if not more. june, july, and august demand we wear white on a regular basis so why not stock up on white tees, shorts, and skirts? summer sales are in full swing for many brands so now is the time to scoop up those closet essentials for a song.
on that happy note, oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend! be safe.

oscar does get hot in this georgia heat. which is one reason he goes for his walks early in the morning and late at night.
Hi Beth. I only recently discovered your blog. Really like your style and your hair cut. I am in the process of letting my hair return to its natural color which is now gray and I love the color of your hair. An inspiration to me.
I had to laugh–whenever my son and I travel, to this day, we always say ‘home again, home again, jiggidy-jig!”
I like the darker denim in your top–I have a few lighter chambray shirts that I love, but I do wear a darker one here and there and I think for whatever reason, it seems to adds a bit of polish–takes things up just a notch.
Love the darker denim top–I have several light chambray shirts, but something about the darker wash kicks it up a notch here.
Oscar looks like such a sweet, smart dog. I enjoy seeing him tool around town with you. Happy Weekend!

you’re right about the darker rinse denim. it just ups the chic factor to the outfit.
