It is good to be back in Virginia. I loved spending time with my parents this past weekend, and I even extended my stay an extra night since my sister also came to visit. My daughter and my sister both love movies, so in the past, when my daughter flew in from Alaska, they always had a movie night together. Usually, I stay at the house, but I decided to go with them this time.

They wanted to see Top Gun, and I couldn’t resist going to see Tom Cruise on the big screen. I couldn’t tell you when I saw a movie the last time, but I remember seeing the first Top Gun before Joe, and I got married. The movie was great, and I think I might have liked it even better than the first one. If you get a chance, see the movie and let me know what you think.

The temperatures have been fluctuating lately, and some days, we are lucky to have 70-degree weather, and on other days it is in the 90s. The day I took the photos for this outfit, this Indigo Blue Lace-Up Sweater felt terrific because it was cool outside. The sweater has a nautical vibe, and it is something that I could see myself wearing for a boat ride in the afternoon. But, the sweater is relatively heavyweight, so I doubt if I could wear it during the day. For those who live in warm climates, this sweater might be too heavy for your area unless you could wear it in the fall and winter. The sweater seems to run a little small, so I ordered a large which fits me well.

Here is the length of the sweater from the back.

I’m still loving this Woven Raffia Leather Wristlet. The woven raffia is perfect for summer, and I love how the circle handle is unique and different. The wristlet has slots for credit cards and enough room to hold my phone, keys, etc. I added white jewelry, the Summer White Seed Bead Bracelet is so cute, and I love the hanging white coral charm. My white beaded earrings are from Chicos, but I can’t find them on the website. I don’t know if they have already sold out or if they haven’t hit the website yet.

I usually wear white jeans, but these are White Relaxed Chinos instead. Jeans can be hot in the summer, and chicos are a great alternative. Ladies who don’t like to wear shorts might enjoy chinos as a way to keep cool. These are lightweight, and I love the fit. I’m wearing an 8, and they fit great and don’t show your undergarments.

These Lambskin Leather White Beaded T-Strap Sandal are a pair that I keep reaching for this summer. The square toe style has been trending for a while, but I’ve not been a fan. I like a pointy toe since it makes your legs look longer. But, I must admit that this sandal is winning me over, and I might jump on the bandwagon. I’m wearing my usual size 9, so the sandals run TTS.

Lucy Lu joined me for a few minutes. She prefers the coolness of the grass over the driveway, so she usually watches me from a distance.
