It’s one of those days. You know what I’m talking about. It’s mid-week, in the sizzling heat of July and I feel like today is the day for nothing special. It’s truly a lazy, hazy day. After a quick run to the grocery, a hello to you all, I’m going to call it a day. Maybe I’ll finish reading my book for this week’s book club meeting. By the way, we’re reading ” The Women In The Castle” by Jessica Shattuck. It’s a very good read and I would highly recommend it.
I just love a front porch. In fact I love all porches period. Since, I was a young girl, there has never been a better place for wiling away a summer afternoon. Friends, family and ice tea while swinging in the front porch swing. Or you could simply rock your troubles away in front porch rocking chairs. Fortunately, I am blessed to have two front porches. And the upstairs one recently got a facelift.
Today, for Wednesday’s outfit of the day,I am sharing one of my favorite outfits of this summer. As always, I like to keep my look, clean and simple. And so, a nice, neat, grey tank top and white leggings works perfectly for my basic look. Then, I add my signature espadrilles plus a grey handbag. Later, in this post, I add my kimono, which I wore earlier this summer in New York.
Here’s the thing: Many ladies of a certain age exclaim, “I can’t wear shorts!” My question is, “Why not?” They’re comfortable, and cool. If you are wearing a walking short, it is basically the same length as your summer skirt. So, the issue is not the shorts; it’s how you’re styling them. Styling them as a woman not a teenager requires a bit more thought than merely throwing on any top and a bottom. Now, let’s take a look at how I recently styled the same pair and top two different ways.
Espadrilles, in particular. By and large they are one of my favorite styles of shoes. I love easy summer dressing with a colorful pair of espadrilles and a simple shift dress. Incidentally, I have learned that one of the easiest ways to give a casual outfit an upgrade is with Espadrilles.
Today, as we celebrate our nation’s birthday,on the 4th of July, I would to like share a few photos that fill my heart with American pride. These shots were taken during a recent trip to New York City.
Are you confused with the term boho chic? No need to be, it’s simple, comfortable, uniquely elegant and fun to wear clothing. Many of the elements of boho-chic dressing because popular with the baby boomers in the late 1960’s and has been recurring in varying fashions since. “Boho” influences are bohemian and hippie along with “Chic” which is translated to mean stylish or elegant. So is it any wonder that we have fallen in love with “Boho Chic” once again!
Because an outfit is fashionable it doesn’t mean that it has to be new. By purchasing good quality, well made items a basic and lasting wardrobe can be easily built. Consequently, a summer material such as linen is an excellent example of this practice. Today’s featured outfit from my closet is nine years old.
