{bday party and stone-bead ribbon necklace}

This afternoon we went to the birthday party of our friend Hank at his home.  He is an incredible man (and wild and crazy) and I could do an entire post on him, but I won't.  ;-)

I am wearing my J Crew turquoise stone-bead ribbon necklace for the first time, and love love it.  I paired it with the corsage tee in Breeze and possibly the best-fitting pants I have ever found--the Premium Stretch Bistro Pant in Stone. 

Muffy, this is the straw bag I was telling you about.  :)


Hank's backyard is so pretty and it was such a gorgeous day!  This is a shot of the poolhouse/guesthouse.


There were pretty bouquets like these scattered everywhere.


Huge ficus trees!


Happy Mother's Day!!

Ali ~~ The handbag is by Monsac purchased at Bloomingdales. Unfortunately it is from about 2 seasons ago and I don't see anything like it now on the website. Where are all of the cute straw bags for summer??
