Oh yeah baby – tickets are bought for what should be a tremendous night out on Saturday – Glen Campbell and Kenny Rogers together at Chastain Amphitheater! To say I am excited is an understatement. MM and I have seen a few acts over the years at Chastain most notable were The Pet Shop Boys and Willie Nelson – both were fantastic nights. Chastain is a a great open air venue and everyone takes picnics and wine – some very well organized folks even take along cushions, folding tables and and wine coolers – my wine never lasts long enough to need one. All morning I have been reacquainting myself with ‘Galveston’, ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ and ‘The Gambler’ – I am giddy with excitement! Oh and Loretta Lynn is playing there on the 24th August – if I can guarantee she’ll play from her Van Lear Rose album I’ll be buying tickets again – imagine if Jack White made a guest appearance!!
I worked out again this morning at the Y so I’m feeling quite happy with myself! I even seem to have got the gym bag packing down to a fine art – I used to really dislike getting ready at the gym before heading to work as I always found I’d forgotten something. Well I seem to have cracked the code but I’m still walking out of the house with a work bag, gym bag and pool bag every day – it requires a lot of careful planning:)
I was inspired to wear an ‘old’ Boden tunic today after seeing Beth wear hers the other day. This tunic is one of the first women’s wear items that I bought from Boden, and marks the time I became interested in clothes again after losing all my weight. I love it and have it in the pinky color too. I wore this taupe one when I was sworn in as a US citizen so it always brings back great memories when I wear it. I’ve paired it with another couple of Boden classics – my pink and orange espadrilles which were a sale bargain and I love them for adding a pop of color to a ‘beige’ outfit, along with my taupe long line cardigan – another sale bargain from summer 2011.

Bad photo taken in the Ladies:)
I have a dress in that print! I went for the purple. It is such a nice pattern quite retro. When I bought it I was worried that it was a bit too Boden and I would see it everywhere but I have hardly ever seen anyone wear anything in that print (seem to remember a top as well as the dress and the tunic).
Every Summer I love getting it out but then remember that I can’t wearing it because it is a bit too small across the shoulders/armholes and I get sore bits on the front of my shoulders. But I love it so I wear it for a couple of every now and again.
I had no idea you were a naturalized citizen! Wow! 🙂
You look great in the old boden tunic, I bring mine out all the time. They really do hold up well, yes?
I feel about Rush the way you do about Kenny Rogers. I get it! We get to see them in September and we are stoked!
