Hearts and stripes

You probably think stars and stripes go together. Specially considering it was just the 4th of July holiday. But, not today. Today we are doing hearts and stripes.

Striped top, given to me; heart belt, Dresslily; scruffed jeans, old; rose gold sunglasses, Ross; blue suede shoes, Ross; shell earring and necklace, handmade by my dad.

I just got this heart belt in the mail from Dresslily. It is now sold out, but they do have other belts with hearts on their website. So I figured, why not wear it for the 4th of July weekend?

 

This asymmetrical striped top is a go-to for cooler summer weather, a boat ride, or staying up late to watch the neighborhood fireworks. We like to joke that summer doesn’t start in Oregon until after the fourth of July.

A special thanks to my son for all the work done on my blog this weekend.

I hope you all had a happy and safe 4th of July weekend.

Stripes and ruffles

I love stripes. And polka dots. And leopard print. But today we’re talking stripes with this little striped peasant blouse. Super cute with the little ruffled sleeves. I think I wore this once on set as an extra, but was so covered over with other stuff, you couldn’t really see it. Let alone me. Life as an extra…

I’ve been meaning to take a trip down to Edgefield in Troutdale. I finally made it down there earlier this month. Caught the last of the fall colors. I should have gone earlier, but I’m glad I went before all the pretty autumn leaves fell off the trees. I still have yet to get some cajun tater tots while there. If you haven’t tried them, you’ll have to try them at one of the Mcmenamins in the Portland metro area that makes them. They are the bomb!

 

Thank you for stopping by, and keep praying for my mom. She is done with radiation but still in a lot of pain. They are trying to get the trial drug approved through a patient assistant program so she hasn’t started that yet. Prayers that everything goes smoothly during this new phase of her cancer treatment and her pain starts going away. We are not sure what shape her lower ilium bone is in now that the tumor is gone. That will just have to start the healing up on it’s own. They’ll do another cat scan a month after radiation treatment ended so we’ll get a better idea then what we are dealing with still.
