Style Scouting: Vol. 144

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

I am on my way back to South Carolina today after spending two weeks with my daughter, Kelly, SIL, 4 year-old granddaughter, Zoe and 2-week old grandson, Dean.

I enjoyed every minute of my visit with them in Los Angeles, but I am looking forward to getting home-sweet-home and back into my daily routine which includes getting back to connecting with you. I have read all your comments you have left me over the past two weeks and loved each one, but haven’t had the time to reply. I know you understand.

This weekend is the unofficial start of the summer season. It doesn’t quite feel real yet that the summer season is here. I hope you are enjoying a relaxing and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend – getting outside and on the grill, going to a parade with lots of red, white and blue and remembering all those that have served our country.
