Fourth Fashion


Red Sperry dock shoes for Hubby...



a white Vesitito Rosa summer dress from Capri for me...

and the blue Sid Mashburn gingham shirt, also for Hubby.


Have I mentioned how glad I am that it’s a three-day weekend? So ready to catch up on sleep, get the house organized and enjoy the 4th of July holiday.

Tonight we’re joining friends for Downs After Dark at Churchill Downs. Churchill introduced special evening racing this season and it’s really turned into a great social event. Folks get dressed up, enjoy cocktails and bet on the ponies. Tonight’s theme is "An American Party: Boots, Brew, and BBQ.” Although, I don’t have any cute Fourth of July sundresses in my closet. I’m planning to wear a black and white sundress I’ve had for a few years. It’s cute and paid for, two pluses when you’re on a shopping hiatus (although, the temptation to run out at lunch to find a great sale item is quite strong!).

So, if Hubby and I were to don a patriotic wardrobe this evening, some of these red, white and blue items featured above, and available through the online specialty store, Taigon, would be my choice.

Thanks again to those of you have asked about my mom and how’s she’s doing. She’s still in the hospital and will likely be there for a few more weeks. She's making progress with her therapy and has been able to walk a bit using the parallel bars. Her speech has greatly improved and she’s really progressed with her occupational therapy. Thanks for your prayers – it makes a huge impact!

Happy 4th everyone!
