If you’ve got a hankering for a Missoni scarf, please note that some of their scarves are heavy, woolly and warm, and others are viscose and nylon, which has a really soft, cool, almost silk-like feeling. This one that I’m wearing falls into the latter category, which makes it pretty idea if one wants to wear a scarf to Florida at the end of summer!Please note that most of the blue pieces are long-gone from J.Jill, but if you want to replicate a 4-piece super-buy like the one I made earlier this summer, J.Jill is the place to do it! They come out with beautiful linen pieces every year, in a wide range of colors and styles, which are good quality and reasonably priced. I can highly recommend them!
Yes, both of my sandals are the same brand – I’ve been fighting an arthritic knee, and supportive sandals seem to help a bit. I’m loving these…This seems like rather a lot to take for just 4 days, but I have a mad abundance of suitcase space (I’m taking some things for my mother which bumped me up from a simple tote bag…) and I thought I’d give myself some options. It’s always smart to have a shirt or cardigan handy – even at home – in Florida because the air conditioning can be paralyzing. I try not to run too much air conditioning here at home, and so I’m not used to “walk-in freezer” types of temperatures!
If we go out to dinner someplace nice, I’ll be in good shape (I’m mostly packing the dress because it’s a favorite of Belovedest’s…). The rest of the time, I won’t need to look amazingly dressy, but I still like to give some sort of sense that I didn’t get dressed in the dark!
It will be interesting to see if we get rain from the storms in Texas and Louisiana…
