The Summer Edit; Will There Be An Independence Day After 2024?

This VOTE T-Shirt is from Effie’s Paper. Get yours here.

It’s hard to believe it’s July already … I hope you had a great holiday weekend.  As a nation we celebrated independence last weekend while the notion of our independence is literally hanging in the balance as we near the 2024 Presidential Election. Like you, I’ve got lots of thoughts; I’m trying to strike a balance between staying informed and retreating into the world of fluff and lala.  So, I thought, I’d share a bit of what I’ve been listening to and doing to keep myself informed and occupied via a Summer edit.

National Bikini Day

I am a card carrying member of the Two Piece Mafia! Tap here for some of my favorite bikinis.

In case you missed it, July 5th was national bikini day! I’ve been a card carrying member of the Two Piece Mafia since I was a little girl … definitely one of my favorite days! I believe in shopping high and low. In my book, one can never have too many bathing suits (they don’t take up much space! hahaha). You can shop some of my favorite bikini finds on my LikeToKnowIt at Kalyn Johnson Chandler. Unsure of how to use the app? Check out my blog post, it explains everything you’ll need to know.

Why Your Vote Matters

If you somehow missed Kevin Roberts’ interview over the past couple of days, please stop and listen to it. It’s chilling and if nothing else, I hope it propels you to the VOTING booth on November 2nd. He said, “We are in the process of the Second American Revolution which will remain bloodless if the left allows it to be.”

My Martini Girl Era

The Gibson is my Summer 2024 cocktail of choice!

It all started innocently enough. Aubrie (my right hand that almost all of you have interacted with) was visiting me in Miami for a work-cation. She’s a gin gal. So, I set bourbon aside for a few days and fell in love with The Gibson. My Summer edit 2024 cocktail of choice. It’s sooo good and I shared the recipe in a recent blog post, you can read it here.

Embedded: Supermajority

It’s no secret I’m a Democrat. But, in all honestly, l’ve been trying to understand what’s going on in the minds Republican women. The right to choose is just as much mine as hers. The right to be certified as a woman owned business is just as much mine as hers. A right to love and help the trans kids in my life is just as much hers. Listening to this podcast gave me a window in to her world and opened my eyes. It’s only four episodes. Definitely worth your time.

Tee It High & Let It Fly

This golf towel though! I don’t go to the links without it. Read more about my golf gear here.

TEE IT HIGH & LET IT FLY IYKYK! It’s safe to say that l’ve been bitten by the golf bug. However, the hot days at the driving range are not for the faint of heart. My hubs caught me trying to dry off the other day with my favorite NEW golf towel. While the genesis of these towels was golf, they’re really perfect any athletic endeavor – yoga, a walk around the park on a hot day, your favorite cardio class, etc.

That’s A Wrap

There you have it; my summer drinks, listens, watches, and style! What’s on your summer edit list? I’m always looking for some good recommendations to add to my lists.

Stylishly Yours.
