New Boyfriends ... Jeans

Wearing red, white and blue on the 4th of July can seem like a costume. 
Caution to the wind. I did it anyway!

Today we visited Founder's Park in Johnson City. The project is part of the renaissance of old downtown which is just beginning. It's a very exciting time as galleries, shops, cafés and loft living are all planned for wonderful old brick buildings dating from the 1920's.

Johnson City has long been known as a sleepy little railroad town but that image is slowly changing as crumbling old warehouses are being torn down to be replaced by biking trails, parks and public art installations.

One of the many art installations is this playful granite gator about to take a bite out of my leg. It is by Craig Berube-Gray from Key West, Florida.

The park is built around the natural flow of Brush Creek which passes through the town. During times of heavy rain the creek will now have plenty of space to expand.

On beautiful sunny days like today, families now have a lovely downtown green space to sit on a bench, go for a walk or play by the creek.

Today I am wearing those new boyfriend style KUT from the Kloth jeans I told you about last week. They are from Dillard's but several other department stores also carry them.

The blue and white striped top is from Chico's as is the red long sleeve top tied around my shoulders. The shoes are Anne Klein Sport via T.J.Maxx.

Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this fun journey through midlife and beyond.

The jeans fit you very nicely. I'm sure you already have several outfits planned. You live in a very pretty town...nice changes to the landscape. Mr Mickey is a top-notch photographer. Does he know how much your readers admire him?

Hello, I'd like to know what brand your sunglasses are. And I always wonder what your closet looks like! Thanks!
