Last night, my husband and I were tossing around ideas for a backyard remodel. We recently moved into a charming home. Do you recall the older home I mentioned in my post last week, “The Cool Truth – Intimates that help Beat the Heat”? Yep, that’s the one!

There are so many innovative home designs in the marketplace these days. I found myself drawn to the ever-inspiring, HGTV®, 55 Incredible Outdoor Gathering Spots. Sure, I too, want to create an outdoor haven for us to gather; whether it be ‘just us’ time with our beloved fur babies, enjoying the evening’s moonlight, or a few good friends around the pool sipping Rosé. Sound inviting? No worries, I’ll leave our address for you at the close of this post. 😊 Did I mention we were gifted with an outdoor grill? Parker’s recent post on summer grilling has the perfect recipes for me to try.

Our forever home will be an ongoing work-in-progress, and we are up for the challenge. Well, as you know with me, my mind starts to wander, and I ask, “how can I apply this same energy to myself, my inner fashionista, and my summer wardrobe?”

Nothing could be better than relaxing outdoors and living in loungewear. National has the perfect, UPF50+ sun protective clothing to keep my skin safe. National also has the best summer dresses to keep me cool in this summer heat. I am inspired to give my summer closet a remodel now that I’ve seen all the fresh and cool summer styles on National’s website. Why, you ask? Because, my body is my haven and I am that midlife stylist who is an ongoing, work-in-progress. 😊

See ladies, we all have a summer remodel in us! Your reno begins now:
