Hello friends. I hope you have a sweet Memorial Day today. Whatever that means for you, whether you’re reflecting on the price paid by a loved one in the defense of our country or tending to the grave of a family member or simply saying a prayer of gratitude for those who have served our country sacrificially, I hope the day is special for you.
As the Memorial Day Weekend sales continue this final day, I thought I’d share a great pair of denim shorts I got at a good price. And you can get them today for a song! (Well, so to speak! *wink*)
If I lived in Georgia and were going to visit my friends Candy and Randy at their lake house, this is exactly what I would wear today. Alas, no such luck! But maybe later this summer I’ll do just that! For many years I joined Candy’s family at their lake house on Lake Sinclair in Georgia, for Labor Day weekend. Such sweet memories!
These roll cuff denim shorts have a 5″ inseam, but they also carry them in a 3.5″ inseam if you want them shorter. AND they have them in a 9″ Bermuda length. They’re extremely comfortable and run true to size. I’m wearing the 8.
The shorts are marked down from $37 to
$15 $11.24, but today you can get them for even less with code HURRY27. The sale ends tonight, however.
My cotton blend t-shirt is embellished with a little embroidery and I love the cactus motif. However, you’ll find other prints to choose from as well. The tee runs true to size, is a nice thickness and comes in under $
7 $6 with code HURRY27.
I chose to wear my leather Keds Courtys (also available at Amazon.com). You can bet I probably have on my no-show socks. Thanks to silicone grip heels, they really do stay in place underneath my sneakers.
Isn’t this Vera Bradley straw beach tote fun? And today they’re giving you 25% off your entire purchase for Memorial Day.
Because this is an ultra casual look, I kept my jewelry simple, but youthful. I added these beaded sphere earrings (no longer available in pink), my star and moon earrings, my star necklace and a gold bangle. I recently ordered this gold bangle and this pink one, and they would look great here, too.
I have another shorts outfit from JCPenney coming to the blog later this week. Hint: it includes another tee from this collection but a different kind of short.

Blessed for My Day
Today may we all resist the urge to react and instead be careful to respond with grace and patience. Let’s be intent on really listening to the other person instead of just formulating our reply while they talk. And let’s remember that we don’t have to express every idea or opinion that we have. Some things are better left unsaid.
Finally, let’s commit to showing respect and grace with our words. Let’s measure them carefully and speak them kindly. When we shout or speak with anger, the other person stops hearing what we’re saying and can only see our behavior. So if we really want our words to count, we’ll speak them carefully, kindly and softly.
This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. ~ James 1:19
