back to school shopping for professionals!

Just because you don't go to school anymore does not mean you cannot enjoy some back to school shopping deals. For professionals like me, well beyond my college and medical school years, back to school shopping deals are times to stock up on fall and winter items. These are my picks from these retailers. Y'all know that I love my designer items but I also shop at your regular department stores. I worked at Kohl's back in college! I find classic and basic pieces there and of course, trendier items that I can wear at work, at home or out and about.

Cardigans ~ great for layering

Ankle booties ~ to wear with jeans or skirts and tights

Dressy blouses ~ some are thin material so make sure to wear a cardi for layering

jumpsuits and smocked pants ~ these are all the rage right now

day trip to george washington's mount vernon {photo diary}

Kitchen at Mount Vernon. Look at that worktable. It is as big as my breakfast table right now. Just shows no matter what size of the kitchen, as long as it is functional, it is a good kitchen!

Selfie of the 3rd place holders. We had an amazing race family edition to Mount Vernon. My dad and his sisters made it there first. They did as it should be because their youngest member is 14 years old. Nobody age 9 and younger for the winners.

My sis and her family made it second place.  They came from the north, less miles. We were third place. My aunt and her 3 kids made it 4th. My cousin with her two young ones (ages 2 and 2 months) made it last. In their defense, the schedule is usually ran by the baby. They are ok arriving last.

Sorry to disappoint, y'all There won't be a poem here. Nada. I just like that title because here are my quick takes for summer 2018.  You could call this a summer of firsts!

1.Birthdays all over
We started the summer break with Memorial weekend and my mom's birthday. Then I celebrated my 35th birthday and went to a fancy date night with hubs at St. Elmo Steakhouse. It was our first time dining there and trying their world-famous shrimp cocktail. Lucy and Daniel turned 3 and 9 years old, respectively.
D and I were the same age, until end of July when he turned a year older. It was my first time going to Giordano's here in Indy. He requested deep-dish pizza (his fave).

2. Maryland reunion
I saw my godmom (my dad's sister) after two decades. I met my cousin K and A for the first time! We went to see George Washington's Estate: Mount Vernon in VA. We swam at the Chesapeake Bay. I ate so much crab. I ate crab everyday that week.

3. To continue the summer at the lake, we ventured north of our fave New Buffalo, MI and went to South Haven. We have been to South Haven before... when we only had two kids!   I wore this suit in MI and again in MD. It's one of my fave suits.
This ice cream yogurt place is in St. Joseph, south of South Haven.
