Can you believe that it is already the middle of June? AND, today is the longest day of the year, also known as the summer solstice. That means, after Monday the day’s start getting shorter😒 I am none too happy about that! I guess we had better start taking advantage of all the summer has to offer, before it is too late.Today I am off to help with a Free Youth Golf Clinic which is held at the Willowbrook Country Club in Breaks, VA. That is about 20 minutes from where I live, and is a golf course where my husband manages the course. I used to play, but haven’t picked up a club since my youngest son started 1st grade. At least not until Thursday night, when Joe took me over to hit a few balls.
I was mainly just going along for the ride, planning on watching him hit. He however had other ideas. After he had hit 10 or 15 balls, he said for me to come over and hit a few. I tried to talk him out of it, with all the normal excuses. But, he was determined to see me try.
I don’t even have any clubs or shoes anymore, I gave them away years ago. He calmly handed me his driver, and said for me to go ahead and try. I really felt ridiculous, I was just sure I would not be able to even make contact. For those of you who have never played golf, it may look easy, but it is NOT. The hardest thing for me is to keep my head down and look at the ball. Sounds easy, huh? What happens is, you will raise up ever so slightly, and then your club will only hit the top of the ball, if at all. One of my greatest fears is looking stupid. I am one of those who would rather not try, if I think I will look stupid. I went ahead and set up, I actually remembered the hand grip and the stance. I mentally checked off everything I could remember to do, and then I swung. I actually made contact!!! It was not a perfect hit ball, but it was playable and I was proud as punch. I hit several more times, and only topped the ball once, so I declare my first attempt back at golf a success. Joe mentioned when we got back to the parking lot that I had hit the ball, and was going to start playing again. One of his friends immediately volunteered that he had a set of clubs he would bring me to get me started. We have the best friends!!!So here I am wearing the cold shoulder trend. It is not one of my favorite trends, but I don’t HATE it. I liked the color of this shirt, so I decided to give it a try. I wasn’t sure how the flutter sleeves and the flowy body of the shirt would work out, but I think it is ok.
I decided to wear a pair of melon colored capris with the top. I guess you call these capris, they are too long to be bermuda shorts. I wanted to wear my new Plunder necklace, and I thought the colors in the necklace went good with the shorts.
Melon Shorts: Similar | SimilarMy Plunder necklace is Felice. I love all the colors and fun charms that are hanging. It even has a matching bracelet that is just as cute, called the Faye. The earrings are not the matching pair (I am going to order) to this set, but are a pair that came in the signup kit. If you place an order, be sure to pick me as your stylist. My number is 241007. My blue leather cuff is a bracelet that I was given from Jewels of the Vineyard. Here is the post where I told you all about the bracelet(s), yes I have two of them.
I have on the same watercolor wedge shoes that wore in this post, and I am carrying my Dooney & Bourke purse. I am not sure what color you call the purse, I know it is brown, but they have such fancy names for colors. It could be burnt sienna, or toffee, or coffee, or even tan. Here is a similar one.
