beautiful country club, although we weren't actually allowed inside of
it. Fortunately it was a gorgeous night out and so being outdoors for
the event was a treat. Interestingly enough, a company that I used to
work for was one of the "teams" that was playing with all of the
"celebrities". The owner and I are on excellent terms, and had I gotten
her attention - I'm sure she'd have had me go out there with her if she
could. (She's the same person who invited me to the annual party at
Fenway that I went to in January. ) Only problem is, she's legally blind
so if I'm not right in front of her - or someone doesn't tell her I'm
there, she won't see me - and I wasn't about to yell her name. I mean,
she was probably 6 feet in front of me, but you know - I just am not
that kind of person. So, I watched her and the people she was with (not
her usual entourage who would've seen me and told her I was there) and
got to enjoy seeing how happy they all were meeting the different ball
players and of course, (be still my beating heart!) "the man of the
hour". There were definitely some "interesting" (read between the
lines on that one!) people there, which made me appreciate even more all
the generosity of players giving their time to talk to everyone. It's
got to be tough when you've always got all sorts of people screaming
So, this morning as I was getting ready for work it truly dawned on me
that I do not have any casual clothes for summer. I have some pretty
work clothes, that are clearly multipurpose for if I'm going out
someplace. But I have no casual shorts, cargo shorts, tank tops, short
sleeved shirts and the like. I don't even have a cute little skirt or
anything like that. You know for if I'm just kicking it back at a
barbecue that isn't a pool party. And truthfully, I could use another
bathing suit or two. Seriously, I have two pair of shorts. One are
these cute purple madras plaid pair that are in the wash - the others
are jeans shorts that I'm wearing today. But I really didn't want to
wear them, you know? I wanted something a little lighter to wear
because yes, it's wet and damp and hot in here again today. So anyway,
it became abundantly apparent that a little shopping is going to have to
So the list for this weekend's hopeful fix for my fashion woes are....
Shorts, skirts/sundresses, tanks/Tshirts, shoes and sandals.
Suggestions on any places having some great fashion and decent prices?
Because I'm thinking Old Navy and Burlington Coat Factory...
Ms. Ann Taylor and I are getting together next week to spruce up the
rest of the wardrobe.
