I went home for Memorial Day Weekend to see my family and to attend an annual white party given by the Traveling Tigers (a RV club of Monroe, LA) in support of the Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation of Monroe, LA. My original plans were to sit in my place all weekend, rest my brain and catch up on the TV show Blackish. However, my friend and mother insisted that I join them at the party. I said to myself "Why not go? I can rest my brain while I'm driving." My last minute commitment to this event meant that I had to do some last minute shopping which was right up my alley.
In a hurry to piece an all white outfit together, I purchased an off white, linen/cotton blazer from Gap and paired it with some white, linen/rayon shorts from H&M. I threw on some nude Steve Madden ankle pumps (old) and proceeded to the party to let my hair down - and let my hair down I did. See below.
Mommy dearest and big brother.
The band played one of our favorite songs by the Isley Brothers - For the Love of You. It was only right we showed the band our appreciation for their excellent music taste by two-stepping.
The effects of the Crown Royal began to kick in at this point.
The Crown Royal totally took over.
I had the most fun that I have had in a while at this party with my family and friends. It's good to let loose every now and then. Unwinding and enjoying life makes working hard even more purposeful.
Hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day Weekend. Thank you to the soldiers who fought and died for our country. Have a bomb week everyone and thanks for stopping by.....I'm grateful (and hungover).
