Summer Party…

Everyone loves a summertime party…being outside enjoying cold lemonade, colder beer, BBQ, fresh peaches and hummingbird cake.  I have a big one coming up this weekend!

The biggest challenge I face when planning for one of these great summer days is-what the heck to wear…cause it is hot and humid in the  sunny south!   I started perusing my favorite online boutiques last night to see if anything jumped out-I’m thinking sun-dress that I can wear with flops.

Friends and family are coming to Charleston to fete my Mom for her 70th birthday.   I can’t believe we are about to celebrate this major milestone.  I am most excited to see her so excited to be the center of attention!!   **I’ll have party pics up next week!!

Happy Tuesday…enjoy your day!  XOXO,  Catherine

For me wedge sandals offer a higher heel without breaking my feet off-I have been known to carry the stylish stiletto when I should be wearing them!!
As an aside, mid-summer is a time when many of your favorite retailers are doing major sales-purging their inventory to make room for fall.  If there is an item (or in my case-items!!) you are holding out for-check it out, chances are it’s on sale!
TGIF friends, and thank you for reading this week!  Have a wonderful weekend!
