Coffee Talk 06.16.19

Good morning, and happy Father’s Day! I have a lot of try-on pictures and shots of what I wore this week, but I didn’t have time to put them into a post with links and sizing notes, so we’re going with an old-school Coffee Talk today.

That’s the one thing I miss when doing these style challenges — I really like to fit in a weekly try-on post because I can share so many more pieces than make it to a dedicated photo shoot/outfit post.

I may just go ahead and do that for one of my 25 days of summer fashion. I mean, I do share complete outfits in those posts, right???

So my parents came in town for the weekend, and it’s nice spending Father’s Day weekend with my dad. We don’t get to spend it together very often.

The girls had their piano recital Friday night, and they both did a nice job. D wasn’t with us, but I got a picture of Paul with his girls.

Then we pretty much just hung out here at home yesterday. It was a beautiful day, although not as warm as we had hoped. Only Paul braved the swimming pool.

My mom and the girls made biscuits for breakfast, and later on, a strawberry pie. We had kabobs for dinner and a lot of fresh veggies, and then we took a walk last night and came upon an unexpected fireworks show that we could see from our neighborhood.

This morning, it’s warm and humid and overcast, and I’m debating a run. It’s my day for it, and I’ve been pretty consistent lately, but I’m so tempted to have another cup of coffee and visit with my mom for a bit longer before we have to get ready for church. We shall see…

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet so I’m not still sitting at the computer when everyone gets up. I hope you all have a relaxing and blessed Sunday and a very happy Father’s Day!

  1. Great picture of Paul & the girls. Glad you get to spend time with your dad too on this special day. Make sure to get a photo of yourself with him and him with the kids. You mentioned a few weeks back you didn’t have many. It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment.  Enjoy your day! 

  2. Your weekend sounds wonderful; quiet and filled with making memories moments to cherish forever. Many times it’s the simple moments that we cherish in our hearts forever. I loved the picture of your girls with Paul. They are definitely becoming beautiful young ladies. 

  3. I hope you have a wonderful day.  I followed some of your Father’s Day gift recommendations and they were a hit!  Thank you!

  4. I keep meaning to tell you, Jo-Lynne, that I love your new Coffee Talk photo. Have a wonderful day!

  5. Beautiful picture of Paul & your girls!  I miss the recitals already. Our 10 year old granddaughter just gave up piano after 6 years, I was heartbroken…..but there is no sense forcing her, when she truly didn’t like it…..On a positive note, how nice for you to celebrate Fathers Day with your parents!  Be sure to snap a few pics to memorialize the event!  Relax and enjoy your day!  

  6. Sounds like a relaxing weekend with family. What a great way to spend Father’s Day.. we had time by the pool yesterday sunny and 80.. then we went out to supper and had a walk on the boardwalk by the waterfront. Today after church we celebrate Father’s Day with a steak barbecue… as Someone else mentioned make sure you get a pic with your dad and the girls you can never have too many photos:) 
    Have a great day

  7. Happy Fathers Day to your father and Paul!  That is a great picture of Paul and the girls!!  Yes, having your try-on session and what you wore as a post counts in my book.  Enjoy your day!

  8. I vote for skipping your run and spending an extra few minutes with your mom as time with parents is so precious. Enjoy your Sunday!

  9. I hope you skipped your run for visiting with your mom. 🙂 your girls look like such classy girls.

  10. Would you please do a post on using black shoes – what colors work best? I have bought several pairs for summer, but I just can’t seem to enjoy wearing them. I always find myself wearing colors that are closer to my fair skin tone.

    1. I have a hard time wearing black shoes in summer too. I have a few pairs but usually opt for nude. I generally like them best with outfits that have black in them. Like, I often wear my black slides or black wedges with my black maxi dress and black utility pants.
