    Hi Beth,
    I finally received my red and white skirt from Talbot s that I ordered the same day you posted it. The skirt would be perfect for an ice cream social, a picnic, or a blue grass concert if they ever happen again. It will go with many things I have in my closet like a blue or white jeans jacket, a chambray shirt, a peasant blouse,etc. I can’t wait to go someplace to wear it.

      isn’t that skirt adorable?! i know it can be frustrating these days what with Covid impacting shipments too. and you’re right, that skirt will take you lots of places this summer. we’re slowly opening up. praise the Lord!

    We have been loving the blueberry vodka cocktail you posted previously. (We even decided to buy a simple bar set to mix drinks.) We have an ice cream maker, and in the summer I love to make frozen yogurt with the fruit of the season. Basically Greek yogurt and cut up fruit in the machine.
    Your outfit looks great! You look so cool and comfortable.

  6. Deanna says:

    Love your OOTD. It looks very casual and comfortable. I personally cannot pull off the shorter shorts, but you’re rocking them. Glad you took some time off. You deserve it!

  7. Eve says:

    What a sweet idea. We use to travel and stay RV parks for a few days. To introduce their guests to each other they would hold ice cream socials. We met some nice people that way. I love these shoes you are wearing. Did Oscar get a bite?

    Buonasera Beth sono italiana quindi la patria del gelato….. Che bella idea questo ritrovarci con un rinfrescante ice cream. Sei molto dolce quando associ qualche cosa a tuo marito in questo caso un suo gusto di gelato favorito. Un grande abbraccio gentile signora!!!

    Mmmmmm. Less than a block away from us is a “Goodberry’s” frozen custard shop, and I tend to be a purist–I typically don’t do toppings. My favorites are the straight frozen custard flavors, like Burgundy cherry, peach, blackberry, etc. There are big chunks of the fruit mixed all throughout–it is delicious. And of course there’s “jamocha,” which is scrumptious. I would not turn down that Bailey’s infused concoction, though, trust me! Enjoy and hope you have a pleasant weekend. Your outfit is cute–love those shorts. It has definitely been a year for the books. This is one I’ll be happy to close the door on, but I am increasingly hopeful that we may be on the brink of some positive things coming of all of this.

    Ooooo Beth! I cannot wait to try that milkshake!
    Also, you look amazing in those shorts!
    I like seeing the slightly shorter length. Your legs look miles long. Personally, I am on the shorter side and find that length of shorts looks best on me. Although, I sometimes get caught up in what is “appropriate” for my age. Love seeing you rock those shorts and still look classy.
    Have a great weekend!

    Nice gams!!! Love the shorts. I can’t wait to try a Guinness milkshake.

  12. Georgia Peach says:

    Oh yummy recipes. Ice cream! Perfect timing.
    And you look super cute & comfy today!!
    Oscar handsome as always

    Ex UK now in Oz never heard of an ice cream social but what a fantastic concept. I’m a convert definitely can go with the boozy versions. We are moving into winter down in Tasmania but it’s on the agenda for summer.
