1. Date Night

I wore this outfit to Scioto CC Saturday night.My husband and I had dinner and drinks by the pool while our younger son swam. It's a great summer go-to dress, and the colors are perfect for Fourthof July parties

  • Rosea Nichols dress, probably 10 years old, from Leal
  • Jack Rogers shoes, from a couple of years ago, from Leal

2. Travel to the City

I was in New York City in June, and this is what I wore while out and about.

  • ALC pants, $395
  • Rossopuro cotton knit sweater, $105
  • Melinda Maria earrings and bracelets

    All in Leal now

  • A 12-year-old Michael Kors black leather jacket, from Leal
  • Stella McCartney shoes, about five years old, from Leal
  • Vintage Ferragamo tote

3. Family Fun

I wore this to my son's 8th grade graduation, which was followed by a dinner/dance for the entire family. Very fun! The dress I'm wearing is older, probably about two years old, but it's very similar to some items we have in store now.

  • Haute Hippie dress, two years old, from Leal
  • Butter shoes, in stock now, $295
  • Miquel Ases earrings, more than 15 years old, from Leal (and we still carry the line)
