Southern girls

One of my great friends is leaving Atlanta to begin her new life with her fiancé in Charlotte.  To wish her on her way several of her girlfriends attended a lovely luncheon on Saturday.  In true Southern style we drank Arnold Palmers and ate chicken salad.  Poppy was lucky enough to be invited along and at one point burst into the room saying “thank goodness you’re all quiet at last!”.  We were listening to a pastor give a blessing.  My poor daughter has inherited my social clumsiness.  Of course she has also inherited some charm and managed to smile sweetly, alleviating any awkwardness:)

On Friday evening my Husband and I went out for dinner to The Floataway Café – another of our favorites.  It’s a bit out of the way for us so we always drive there instead of cabbing it, so it was quite a tame evening for us:)  Another shocker is that I didn’t wear anything new!

However, during the day on Friday I wore my new River Island dress.  The fabric is so comfortable and I got so many compliments on it – it is loud though, so it is hard not to be noticed in it!

I have a crazy week of packing for two climates before the children and I leave for Bury this weekend!  The 2014 vacation countdown is on!

 

Feeling groovy.

I hope you all had an amazing long weekend.  Mine was spent by the pool chilling and having lots of fun with friends.  It feels a bit odd being back in regular clothes today.

I’m convinced my hair is benefiting from taking Biotin combined with the sunshine – it feels pretty long today – well long for short hair if you know what I mean.  I am determined to grow it over the summer and see how close I can get to a bob by Fall.  In the meantime it requires plenty of wax for tucking it behind the ears.  As I dried it this morning I felt inspired by the 70s and tried to make my flick as Farrah-like as possible at the front.  Gosh she was beautiful wasn’t she?

Going with the 70s theme I went with my Lotta from Stockholm clogs.  I love these shoes – they are incredibly comfortable and at $85 they are far cheaper than Swedish Hasbeens.  You can buy them here on Amazon or via the Lotta site.  I applied a couple of treatments of olive oil to these nude ones to age them a bit and make the leather a tad darker.  They also have a great Facebook page with regular updates on new styles here.
