Last week was a birthday party for one of my three (soon to be four!) grandsons!. We went over for a barbecue and here we are playing with the front yard swing. I love these cotton print crop pants from Talbots this season.
Summer Barbecue Look
The pastel colors aren’t my usual ones, but I thought they looked like a rainbow sherbet ice cream cone so I had to get them. In fact, the pants are called “Talbots perfect crop pants” in their “Fruit & Flowers” pattern. They are flattering in their fit as the leg gently tapers from thigh to ankle with darling white buttons along the outside cuff.
I paired the pants with a medium pink v-necked cotton tee from Chico’s outlet (this season). I wore Talbots gold wedge sandals (last year) which acted as a neutral. The gold color on my skin tone still manages to blend well so that my leg line isn’t shortened visually.
This little guy is such a sweetie! He LOVES all things construction. So I went to Etsy and purchased a gray tee shirt for him (personalized with his name and a “2” for his big day).
And for his baby brother we had to get a coordinating look…
Here they are together… Could they be any cuter???
Look at his cake that my daughter and her hubby created!!! Isn’t it so fun?!!! They bought the little trucks here, and used cake crumbs for the “2” design as well as for the “boulders” in the dump truck. I just thought this was so playful and perfect for the Jackman!
Summer Barbecue Outfit
One last fashion detail I wanted to include involves my gold charm bracelet. Because I wore gold sandals, a gold watch, and simple gold hoop earrings, I decided to wear my mom’s gold charm bracelet. It’s special because it has charms for all five of my brothers (!) , me, and all the grandkids. Pretty neat. I’m hoping that for this year’s Christmas present from all of MY crew that I’ll get something similar in silver, Fingers crossed.
