Community Pride












      T.J Maxx- top, Sans Souci- shorts, Coach- sunglasses, Rock & Republic and DKNY- accessories,
     Gucci- hobo bag, Vera Wang- Sandals, Essie's nail polish- Lime light  

It never ceases to amaze me how many beautiful little treasures you can find in your own back yard...places and things you might pass a hundred times without ever looking at them.  Here, about a mile from my house, I found this pretty little park tucked into the downtown.  You can tell a lot about a community by how they remember their heroes;  people here are proud of their heritage.  It was a perfect spot for an early-evening stroll, and, with the temperature dropping into the mid-80's (and finally bearable!), I decided to pull a few surprises out of my closet.  I bought these lace shorts over a year ago because they were so cute, and, waiting for warmer weather, I put them away -- and then forgot about them, until now!  :)  I love the zipper blouse, which is exactly as light as it looks in the photos and just floats on my shoulders.  And the sandals with the spikes on the heels...well, they were irresistible, and, even though Vera's idea of size 6 is a tiny bit larger than mine, I HAD to have them!  Goodbye for now, Mr. Soldier;  I hope you enjoyed my visit as much as I did.  :)


Love lots, 
Shey :) xoxo

    1. Maybe not heartbreaking but touching, dear. It's nice to see that people remember the ones who fought for them with such a nice and well-kept park.
