happy fourth of July!
not a long post today. just sharing snippets of the festivities. last night the kiddos and their significant others (and i) hopped in the car and headed to the Georgia Club for a barbecue and fireworks show. and we were not disappointed! what a difference a year makes. there’s nothing better than celebrating Independence Day unless that’s celebrating with a community.
Georgia has dished up a delightful summer so far. and last night was one for the books. no humidity with temps in the eighties dipping down to the seventies by the time the fireworks were on display. no complaints here! while i slipped into a comfy pair of shorts and linen shirt for the outdoor soiree this adorable outfit was worn this past weekend and i just had to share.
these slim fit pants (size 8 fits tts) are from Talbots. love the splattered shades of blue plus the side zip that eliminates bulk. a sleeveless cotton sweater also from Talbots is the perfect companion to a bold print. and Talbots is offering 50% off site wide today. but my new espadrilles from Tory Burch steal the show. Tory is having their semi-annual sale so if you love this brand now’s the time to shop. besides the espadrilles (sold out, similar here) i snagged a ruffle wrap dress and a colorblock turtleneck.
love all the fashion inspiration. aren’t these red sneakers adorable? love the simple white skirt and navy tee.
i need these chairs!
what a cute striped dress! tiered dresses are trending this summer.
enjoy your fourth of July!

Thank you for sharing beautiful photos of Georgia Club’s Independence Day celebration. 🇺🇸🇺🇸
what a beautiful celebration!
Nice festive post, Beth! Keep enjoying the beautiful weekend. Maybe check your links to the sales. When I click, some are going to a different store than indicated.😊
thanks for the heads up, janet! enjoy the 4th!
Thank you for sharing all those beautiful pictures with us. Have a wonderful weekend. Stay safe.
thanks so much for stopping by!
A question. I don’t wear sleeveless as do a lot of “women of a certain age”. I like elbow or longer sleeves. Would you please feature longer sleeves from time to time? Elbow llngth during the summer.
hi ruby, thanks for the suggestion. i do try to keep a variety of styles in play on the blog. i hope you caught these recent posts:
Love all the fun pictures,clothes,fireworks star covered chairs! Looks like a fun time was had by all. Ours at the Florida Yacht Club is tonight. So hopefully we will get t see some great fireworks,etc. There are so many Georgia fans in our neighberhood I feel like we have been there. Also one son is a graduate of the Education school there, so another connetion for one Gator and a Seminole! Ugga used to come visit one family when GEorgia played in our town. KIds loved him!
there is that rivalry! glad to know there are Bulldawg fans that have infiltrated Florida.
Thank You Beth for letting us know about Ralph Lauren sale.
i hope you enjoyed the 4th, gloria!
Sorry I missed you last evening at the Georgia Club. This Carolina girl is blessed to call it home. We have the best fireworks!! Glad you could come!
absolutely love the fireworks show. The Georgia Club knows how to do things right.
Wonderful pics Beth!
thanks so much for stopping by today.
Looks like a great time at the Georgia Club and some great outfits. It reminds me of 4th of July celebrations at Fort Vancouver in Vancouver, WA.
couldn’t have asked for better weather, food, company or fireworks.
I’m so impressed with the Georgia Clubs celebration last night! Fireworks look terrific! Great fashion too…..thank you for sharing, Beth!
and the weather was absolutely perfect! which never happens especially in Georgia.
Enjoy the rest of the 4th, Beth! So nice to be able to be with friends and family again AND see fireworks this year.
and the fireworks display did not disappoint! hope you enjoyed your 4th.
Cute pants and shoes. So festive!
Gad you could celebrate with family!
what a difference a year makes!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos from what looks to have been a fun evening. Your fireworks photos are terrific. And, love the star-spangled chairs. Happy 4th!
it was truly a lovely weekend spent with my family.
As a long time reader I love your blog and you and your family. I know you have lived around the world in many cultures and that your marriage reflected a desire for harmony and peace among all people. But the Photos of the Georgia Club July 4th celebration look very segregated to me and don’t seem to reflect America and your own values. Why not go somewhere else next year? This blog is for everyone.
With liberty and justice for ALL. As a person of color, Meredith, I agree wholeheartedly. A great suggestion.
thank you for sharing your thoughts, Meredith.
