Sundays seem tailor made for relaxing with family and friends, being carefree and remembering what’s wonderful about life. That’s not to say we always get to do that, but it’s nice when the stars align. A few weeks ago when I was home I popped up to Greenville, SC to see my sister at Furman University. Yes, there’s quite an age difference between us but I generally lie to myself and pretend the years count as months. Totally legit, right?!
Mr. T and I had a great day with her where she filled in as tour guide for us and we all enjoyed some good eats. She was finishing up exams so our visit provided a needed break from her recent BFF, the library. Beyond that, it was a great chance to spend a little time together before she left a few days later for a Summer study in Ireland. Truth be told I wanted to trade places with her but I figured her classmates might notice an old lady in her place. Maybe if I wore bigger sunglasses and kept them saturated with Guinness they wouldn’t notice? Guess I’ll never know.
I thought this dress was the perfect easy, breezy number to float around town in. The weather was warm and the silk, linen blend kept me comfortable and cool. An adorable elephant charm necklace designed by Dogeared jewelry made me feel like I was on Safari… Well maybe not Safari, but I can at least claim the title of explorer for the day. Neutral accessories, mixed media jewelry and my neon nail color lighted things up but spending the day with my sister was easily the best kind of Sunday style.
So whatever you do today hopefully you can take some time to enjoy yourself! Laugh, be silly and delight in life’s simplicity, but just one note of caution… Don’t get stung in the neck by a bee. That’s what happened to me AFTER these pictures were taken. For the next week half of my face resembled a chipmunk! Keep to the silly kind of pout like the ones I made in these before photos; Not the inflated kind I made after…. Bzzzzzzz
