Summer Nights

in the mountains

the scoop

We are on the border of mountain and pacific time so it stays daylight until 10 pm here at our mountain home. I wish it would get darker earlier so I could stay awake more often to look at the stars. The stars are brilliant and beautiful and they seem so close that you could reach out and touch them. Truly magical.

Linking my sweater (run large, wearing a S and wish I had gotten XS). Also linking fun summer options!

evening at home style

my look

Now that our weather has warmed up I am living in cut offs and big beachy sweaters. The sweaters are perfect for the chill that settles down around us in the evening. Daily highs now are in the 80s and lows in the 50s. These are DIY cut offs. I wore a lace bralette that is almost like a tank top and then an over sized summer sweater. If shoes are neccessary I wear a pair of mules that slip off and on easily. A colorful necklace complete my look.

I am knee deep in settling into our city house. Nothing reminds you of how old you are like moving! Ha ha. I am still doing the initial deep cleaning. We had a new bed delivered but other than that no furniture. I've have the kitchen just about set up though and the dinning room is next. I am taking my time with things and taking breaks in the mountains to cool off since it is super hot in the city right now. I am focusing on the journey!

Closing Day!

What to wear

to a house closing

the scoop

A couple of things here goin' on. Maybe three . . . It's closing day on the house in the city and I am so excited. But I'm almost as excited about these jeans. I mean they are hands down my favorite pair for summer. So boho, so comfy, so me! But wait there's more! This top with these jeans is crazy my loves! CRAZY! 

But back to the house. I am headed down with a big truck load of stuff, doing the final walk through and picking up the keys. I will spend the night in a sleeping bag. Ugh. Because bright and early in the morning some of my furniture is being delivered. So a fun little camp-out for me!  Think giant pizza on the floor, TV hooked up to rabbit ears. Ha ha! But it's the beginning of fun projects of putting together our place. My husband will follow along shortly after. He is the president of the Idaho Aviation Association, McCall Chapter and the annual fly-in is tomorrow and he has to be there for that. Then he and the fur babies will be on their way to help because its all hands on deck this weekend.

Linking exact jeans and similar items for creating your own look!

just a bit of

Boho

my look

These jeans went out of stock in most sizes when I first wrote this post, then they were restocked but I am sure they will sell out again really fast. I snatched up a second pair as soon as I saw them available.  This top is so boho! You can wear it like a peasant blouse or off the shoulders. I mean how fun it that? My shoes are old but perfect low heeled sandals in orange and tan. The fun little bag was a thrift find and I love it! My layered necklace is old too. It's hard to see but it had a pineapple and star and other beach type things.

Linking more fun tops and sandals.

Woot Woot! Time To Get To Work!

comfortable work attire

the scoop

Well all the house wheeling and dealing is done! We close in a couple of weeks and the planning, packing and organizing has begun. Two weeks is not a lot of time but I am an expert mover. We don't have to move that quickly but I don't let grass grow under my feet. I can do it all from the planning to heavy lifting. I pride myself on the ability to create an almost seamless move. I have moved a lot in my life and always love the challenge, the opportunities, and the unexpected.

more of the story

Our house here in the mountains will become our vacation home once again. We've had the house for 18 years and it was our vacation home for most of that time. Then we decided to stay here full time about five years ago but still had a house in the city until a year ago when we sold it. It was way too big for us and time to let it go. After a year of not having it we found we missed it and the convenience of having a place to stay when we wanted to go down to get a city fix so a smaller place would be ideal. And the rest is now almost history. We now have this fabulous place and I'm excited to get things in order. The great thing is we will still have our place in the mountains for when we need fresh air and quiet. Selling it will be down the road a few more years. My husband is never in too much of a hurry. Ha ha!

I'll share more as things progress but one of my favorite parts of this house is the outdoor living area. These are pictures provided by the last owners. There are two levels of patio with a built in bar area and a beautiful water fall as well as a rock fountain. There is even a zen area  to spend time in relaxing.

I'm never one to run

away from a challenge so I suit up for work!

my look

I am a worker bee. I love to be involved in all the buzz of a move. So I dress for the occasion. Recently I was looking at cut off shorts online and decided I had enough jeans that I could spare a couple for DIY cut offs. This is a favorite pair. They came from really baggy boyfriend jeans which I find to be the best for cut offs. I added a tee bought in the boys section at Costco last year, old Adidas sneakers and boom, I'm ready to rock and roll!

Ageless Style Link Up

My Monday post will be pushed back to Tuesday next week as I guest host the Ageless Style Link Up. I am so excited to participate in this month's theme, Keeping Cool In The Summer Heat. Not too difficult for me up in the mountains since most days are still in the upper 60s or low 70s. I am ready for some heat that's for sure!
