How I spent my summer...and a gratuitous outfit post

First...the outfit. It seems that a lot of people like to post pics in their fabulous wardrobes, so here is a pic of me in a dress Frank bought me for Christmas last year. Black and white taffeta gingham, with black lucite buttons with rhinestones in them, and a dropped, pleated skirt from the mid-50s. 




I know I have been bad about keeping up with all that I've been doing this summer. The truth is that I have not had much time for blogging. Between work and commitments with the Bombshells and my kids, there has not been much time to blog. 


Aside from my trip to the UK, here is a brief recap of some of what I was doing this summer...


Vending at car shows to raise money for Booze Broads and Hotrods (The Bombshell's website)



Time with Family



Time with Friends
 


Went to a few shows...







 



 What I did the most this summer, much to my joy, was watch my son skate at the skate park.

I love the dress! It's shaped a lot like my diner dress but the material is a million times better... Maybe a diner on the moon? I'd buy a moon shake from you x

Fab dress, just gorgeous! That's what summer is for just enjoying, it'll soon be winter and we'll be indoors blogging more regularly!

Oh my he's the cutest. Looks like you've certainly been busy! I LOVE the photo of you dancing in the white dress where you're smiling at the camera, you just look like you're having a blast.

Wow that dress looks fab on you! I'm loving the outfit posts from you gals! I hope it motivates me to do some of my own. Blogging has been low on my radar this Summer too. Looks like you had a fun Summer...I can't believe it's almost over!

PS.....no the apron will be mine!
