There's really not much I love more than a great night out with my main squeeze...I mean really! However, by the time that great evening arrives, I'm usually tired and may just want to throw on something presentable and go! I don't know about you ladies, but it's a real world struggle for me as to HOW dressed up date night really needs to be.

The Mountains Love Me~~Or Is It The Other Way Around

Days in the North Georgia Mountains are so relaxing and sweet. I always wish I could stay longer to take it all in. Time here travels at a much slower pace, and I love it. Just getting out and checking in at my usual places is really all I want to do, and soaking up the nature all around is a total stress reliever. Above, I'm outside the Old Sautee Market (the little restaurant next to the Old Sautee Store). They have great sandwiches, soup, ice cream, pastries and coffee--and the Farmer's Cheese--we can't forget the Farmer's Cheese! This little chambray dress is perfect for lazy mountain weekends. I bought it at The Old Sautee Store, here in Sautee, Georgia, and I have linked the same or similar options for my entire outfit below.  The sandals are from Target, (great prices) and I have linked the exact sandals, as well as some similar options.

Let's talk about spending on fashion, shall we? I know how it is. You see all of these BEAUTIFUL things, and you WANT them...ALL OF THEM!! Am I right??? But, they cost SOOOO much!! 



So, let's just examine the above outfit. The jeans are from Target (several years ago). The top is from Loft (several years ago).  I have linked similar looks below. Now...the shoes...well, those are Gucci suede loafers from this year, and I will wear them for years to come. They have been one of my absolute favorite pairs of shoes this year, AND, more importantly, they are comfy! My point here is that most of the outfit is relatively cheap...NOT the shoes, but we can't have it all! Scroll right below to see more of the look.

Party Time--A Friend's Going Away Party

So, if you follow my Instagram, you’ve seen this outfit from last Saturday night, but I thought you might want to see where the outfit went last weekend! A dear friend of mine has a son going to graduate school in New York. Yes, that dates me, but I’m not letting a number get to me. At any rate, my Honey (in the photo above) and me had a great time attending his going away party.  (Photo by: Roger D.

Georgia Mountain Cabin~Just a Minor Renovation~Part 1

As I mentioned in my Welcome post, I want give you all a tour of my Georgia Mountain cabin and its transformation. It is the happiest of all happy places for me, and it was a true labor of love making it into our home. It's our escape from our daily busy lives, and it's where we go just to unwind as often as we can. 

Today, I want to show you what I saw the very first time I ever saw this house in person and the renovation process in the den and kitchen. I first saw the house in September, 2012. The outside really wasn't that much different then than it is today, but the inside, well...it's a lot different! The photo above is the outside of the house in 2012.  

Just to set the stage for how this renovation went...we looked at the house in September, 2012, closed on it by the end of November and met with the builder to describe what we wanted done, and after meeting with the builder, we returned to Florida. We came back at the end of December, 2012, picked out some things for the house, and that was it. We didn't see the house again in person until February, 2013, when we moved in. It was a complete long-distance renovation, but thankfully, the builder knew I had to see the progress and sent photos almost daily. I selected a lot of items from a distance, but somehow, it all came together.

Florida Heat~Breezy Style

Y'all it is so hot here in Florida, it's almost impossible not to melt! We already know I love white jeans, which are about as cool as you can get for daytime wear. This super cute off the shoulder top is one I just picked up from Target at a great price. Interestingly, it has buttons all the way up the front, but I styled it with the buttons in the back. It works both ways, but I think it looks best like this. I love  versatile pieces that can be worn more than one way. Other colors were available too! I have linked several similar styles of jeans, belts and shoes below. The only item not tagged in the link is my fabulous tote bag by Kimmy Kay . Click link to shop her Instagram page! ๐Ÿ˜˜
