Happy Monday friends! How was y’alls Mother’s Day? My sweet family was in town all weekend so I was able to have lots of quality time with them & celebrate my mom at lunch yesterday! I’m always thankful for time with them! PS- I asked y’all if I would like the new Avengers movie and I was kind of surprised by the mixed reviews! We saw it Saturday night and I thought it was really good, but I do wish it has a more “definitive” ending (if you saw it I think you know what I mean) but it’s wide open for the next movie to come out!

So let’s chat date nights! I think date night style is so much fun, because dates always carry such a thrill of anticipation (even if it’s someone you’ve been dating for awhile)! When I get dressed for a date sometime I think, “What memories am I going to make in this outfit?!” It just makes me so excited! And you know what else gets me excited? These bow shorts! The gold material is kind of shiny up close so it is perfect for dressing up. I’ve never paired an off the shoulder top with shorts before but I loved how this combo turned out. And what really takes this look over the edge? My new gold tassel necklace! This is from a local designer here in Florida and I love that so many of her pieces give a nod to our tropical style & include Lilly inspiration! Do you have specific date night style?

I know not everyone is able to watch Instastories within the 24 hours, so I just have to tell y’all about this scary experience that happened yesterday!! I was walking Buddy around the lake we walk around every day, and as I was coming around the corner I heard a huge growl. Y’all it was an 8ft alligator chomping it’s jaws, standing above the waterline and growling SO loud! this gator was ready to attack! needless to day I held on tight and pulled Buddy to safety! (And Buddy is as stubborn as they come so pulling him was so hard!) Terrifying!

Here’s to a less adventurous start to your week! 😀

      Oh girl I did scream loud! But those (dog) mama instincts kicked in!

    Your gator story was unbelievable – were you really shaken up? I hope someone gave you a strong cup of tea!! Do you still pass that Alligator now, after it’s anti-social episode? I think I’d be dressing in Kevlar if I was walking passed it (not that that would help!) Terrifying! Moving on to date night- black is definitely a go to on a date – keeping it low key – so the dress doesn’t become the main attraction! Really great outfit you have put together – the bow and the tassel compliment each other well.

      You are so funny! It’s been raining since Sunday so I haven’t made it back to the lake. Hopefully He’s under control next time!
