How This Works
These are my real life outfits from my own closet. Many of these things are available, but some may not be. When I can locate one quickly I’ll share substitutes and/or more economical options. But if I don’t provide one and you’d like for me to, just ask.
All available items are linked in the captions of the photos. Even if they don’t look like links (sometimes they don’t highlight for some reason), they generally are. So just click through if you’re interested.
What I Wore Friday
I’m really enjoying trying to wear more cognac accessories lately. And I think I’ll try to do the same this fall and winter. I think the cognac or saddle leather is such a nice, rich choice. It adds a little something to a basic look.
What I Wore Sunday
How I Dressed Monday
I sure am going to miss outfits like this once the cooler weather comes in. Aren’t you?
What I Wore Tuesday
As I’ve been packing for my London trip, I’ve been trying out different items to see how they feel. I really do like this little travel skirt and I almost packed it. But in the end I just decided against taking any skirts or dresses. I just didn’t want to deal with shaving, tanning and the different undergarments I’d need. I mean I do shave my legs. Ha! But I didn’t want to have to be shaved on a particular day in order to wear a skirt. Know how I mean?
This black Arrival skirt is almost sold out, but it does come in a clay color, and both are generously marked down. It runs true to size and has nice zipper pockets on the sides.
What I Wore Tuesday
Tuesday I had nail and hair appointments, and I needed to swing by the mall to pick up a black belt and make a return. I’m wanting to wear my cool, comfortable and casual summer pants as much as I can right now, so I opted for my white Frank & Eileen Italian linen pants on this day. They are sooo comfortable.
I really enjoy creating very seasonally cool looks by combining white with beige, ecru or tan. On this day I reached for my Banana Republic short sleeve linen shirt in stone washed beige. I left one side of the front untucked along with all of the back. I don’t like that look with every shirt, but with this particular button down it works really nicely because it features a split, curved high-low hemline.
What I Wore on the Road Wednesday
Wednesday we made a quick road trip to Georgia to help my parents celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary. It was a surprise for my mom. So we needed to stop at my daughter’s house for just an hour or so to change clothes before meeting my parents and brother and sister-in-law at the restaurant. So I opted for no makeup and wore my linen pants and sleeveless top.
What I Wore to My Parents’ Anniversary Dinner
Wednesday evening we had dinner at Canoe along the Chattahoochee River. It was a beautiful summer evening, and we just had the best time. I wore my black linen dress with nude strappy sandals and simple jewelry.
I was very cool and comfortable in this black linen dress. And I was so glad I had purchased it earlier in the summer. It turned out to be the perfect choice for the occasion.
What I Wore Thursday
Thursday we got up early and had a homecooked breakfast with Mom and Dad before heading home. My dad is a big Ford guy and he actually restored a 1966 Ford Mustang for me when I was a teenager. So I had specifically chosen to wear this Ford Mustang t-shirt that day. It’s so soft and runs true to size. I think I’ll enjoy wearing it this fall.
And that’s what I wore this week! I will be traveling to London tonight and I may not have many blog posts next week. It depends on how much I get done Friday morning. I’ll be sharing my daily outfits as I go on the LTK shopping app (download it in your app store!) and on Instagram. And I’ll give you a complete recap here when I return from my trip in a little over a week. Have a great weekend!

Blessed for My Day
Sometimes we may be in a war of words with a friend or loved one. And occasionally we have to battle physical illnesses or threats. But the most prevalent battles we face are not flesh and blood struggles at all; they’re spiritual in nature. Sometimes we have to defend ourselves against the accuser as he throws lies our way, insulting us and causing us to doubt our security in the Lord. Other times we have to climb out of a pit of self-pity or down from a mountain of pride. And sometimes we simply have to forge our way back to solid ground, coming out of a tangle mess of deceptions and foggy thinking.
How do we fight these battles? By clinging to the truth and disarming the lies of Satan. We must learn to take everything thought captive to the knowledge of Christ. We must take the lies spoken aloud to us or the ones we hear in our minds and go directly to God’s Word. There we can examine them in the light of truth. Then we must extinguish those fiery darts and choose not to believe them. And we must affirm our faith in God’s Word, His character and His ways.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not wage battle according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. ~ 2 Corinthians 10:3-4
