I live just outside a relatively small town and yesterday was the annual parade which was as good a reason as any to wear something “new” – my sleeveless chambray!

I could knot this, tuck it or just leave it as is because, of course, I was running late.

The good time didn’t end with the parade!  I went and relaxed on my friend’s deck with wine slushies since I so unfortunately can’t manage taking the kids to the midway!

Frozen fruit, white wine of basically any quality blended and with a splash of Sortilege or Grand Marnier on top!

It is important to get several servings of fruit each day. :D

The sun was hot but I had a light open-weave cardi and a light scarf on hand for some sun protection AND to bring in a great summer colour combo…
