Casual Wear: Having Some Fun!

As the end of school nears and the temperatures go up (96 yesterday!), our teachers are allowed to be more casual.   Out come the flip flops (don’t tell Tim Gunn…he says only at the swimming pool!)  and the shorter pants! 

This week was fun…you can tell I love my red denim, since I wear it often!  The floral jacket is really old from a thrift shop, but I hang on to it for fun times.  The green butterfly cardigan is a Calvin Klein from Marshall’s ….last summer.   It works in the air conditioning, but is warm for outdoors.

Of course, I was anxious to wear the necklace I bought for myself at Versona!  Love it!   All my weekends are busy with school activities until June…so I have to go!  But, tell me, what fun things are you up to for May??  Happy Saturday everyone!

  1. Loving your floral jacket, Pam - I've worn one similar this week, too! You've picked out some beautiful jewellery... the necklace is sooo pretty! (Jealous of your hot weather!! So cold and grey in the UK!!)

  2. Wow, you got the hot weather quickly, Pam! We're enjoying a leisurely weekend, no serious plans. Your new necklace is fab and so is your multi-metal bracelet.

  3. I love that floral jacket, and the combo with the new necklace. It actually complements the embellished neckline of your tee rather than fighting with it..well done! 96 already?!?!? Yikes. I don't know how you all do it. I also hate going back and forth from that kind of heat and a/c. I always carry a sweater with me in the summer, because I freeze in a/c.

  4. You are simply lovely dearest Pam. I am very late in posting this weekend, due to loosing PICNIK, my number one collage maker! I am trying to figure out other options to make collages and it is going to take me some time to learn them! I will let you know when my Paris party will start....HAVE FUN! Anita

    1. I love picmonkey and word on the street is that collage is coming to it soon

  5. Pam, your Versona necklace is stunning. I love tassels and this piece provides so much interest against your neutral background. You look very chic in the midst of a hot day.

  6. My always gorgeous Pam.
    Are you in Pinterest???

  7. Love both these outfits.
    Absolutely freezing in England. Coats (2), scarf, extra socks.

  8. Beautiful outfits on you, both of them! I don't know how you handle all that heat down there. But then again, I don't know how I handle all this rain in Seattle!

  9. The Versona necklace is beautiful. You create such attractive outfits!

  10. I promise not to tell Tim! heehee! You look fabulous!
    Have a pretty day!

  11. I love this, in fact, I think I've worn the same outfit. Almost.

  12. Love the jewelry pieces! You look great!

  13. I LOVE this outfit! Especially the long drapey cardi!

  14. It's a cool necklace! I went with DH to pick up the grandson from school on Friday and just as you report ALL the teachers were in capris and mules or flip-flops. Even the principal was dressed this way...no AC in the school.

  15. Love the necklace and how you have teamed it with the neutral colours

  16. What an amazing necklace and it looks so fabulous on you. I love that floral jacket you have on, it is so gorgeous. Your bracelets are fab too. All the accessories are!

  17. That jacket is fabulous!!!! You should hang on to it as long as possible!

  18. You seem to find the most wonderful bracelets!

  19. LOVELY PICS:) I really like your blog and I want to follow, do you have twitter or FB??

    Have a great week.

  20. Florals, red legs and killer necklace = blogger outfit. So chic- you've been sartorially on fire as of late while keeping cool.
