{making early morning deliveries in the drizzle}

It’s been a showery week. It’s hard to find the motivation to get out of bed in the middle of a downpour, much less drag your soggy behind to work. And as for accomplishing anything productive? fuhgettaboudit.

There are handfuls of activities I can think of that I’d rather do in all this rain. None of them require proper attire or leaving the house. They include: Cuddling up with a steamy mug of hot tea and a good book. Watching marathons of cheesy Lifetime movies on the couch with Doak. Taking shamelessly long and luxurious naps. Baking a Pinterest-inspired treat or two. Working on one of the projects from my DIY to-do list (more on that later). Or catching up on my blog reader. Any or all of these would be oh-so-lovely, don’t you think?

Cute summer outfits are best saved for sunny days, so until things clear up I’ll have to think of other ways to entertain you around here. Until then, I’m off to drink a glass of wine for charity at an annual “bartender bash” fundraiser for the local Boys and Girls Clubs. You know, since I’m already out of the house.

Oh, by the way…

Thanks for all of your feedback on my eyewear conundrum! The Ainsworth frames won by a landslide, and they were my favorites, too. I secretly hoped you all would choose them ;-)

  1. Those coral-y patent loafers – they look like they can brighten up any dreary rainy day!

      Agreed. And I dig how they match the edges of the plant.

  • Our blooming crepe myrtle + pink sunset skies. 💕
She was just a little baby tree when we planted her by our front window 13 summers ago, and now she’s as tall as the roof! #crepemyrtle #ihavethisthingwithpink #acolorstory #summernights
  • To file under Unexpected Wardrobe Staples: a snake print duster; I found this one at @topbuttons last month and put it in my #30x30remix as a wildcard. I wore it for the first time yesterday, and now I’m totally on-board the kimono/duster/light-and-easy-layering-layering-piece train! #ootd #instastyle #whatiwore #shoplocal
  • Hey, girl! 👋🏻 We have a handful of these hand-painted face vases available at @lasaterflowers that are perfect for fresh flowers, succulents, or even a catch-all bowl for keys and hair ties. (We all have one of those somewhere in our home; it may as well be cute. 😉) #floraldesign #shopsmall #summerblooms #flashesofdelight
  • I jumped on board with @kendieveryday’s #30x30remix! For the next month, I’ll mix-and-match 30 pieces from my wardrobe into 30 weekday outfits and share them in weekly roundups on the blog.

My first week of remixed outfits + my thoughts on the challenge are in today’s post at keiralennox.com. 👖

  • Back to work after a relaxing weekend! But with *zero* tan to show for it; I’m never not fully-shaded and SPF’ed, wearing a giant sun hat and some kind of mumu situation on a beach.
☀️😂 👵🏼
  • Found our new favorite beach getaway spot this weekend! 🌴 #lovefl
