Lazy Hazy Days Of Summer
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.
And The Winner Is Gingham!
Gingham is this summer’s fashion winner.
Picnic attire? Checkmate!
This preppy black-and-white print is not only classic and comfortable but also stylish.
Easily, it can be dressed up or dressed down. And the basic black-and-white palette makes it effortlessly versatile.
When wearing a touch of gingham print along with a netrual color, it delivers maximum impact with minimal effort!
It’s Maxi Time
Weekends were definetly made for the maxi dress.
Remarkably, the style and simplicity of a maxi dress can take you from poolside to the dining room seamlessly with style and ease.
Amazingly, the great thing about a maxi dress is that it is the art and the canvas for your look. When styling it you need only add the accessories.
Pink, Purple And The Front Porch
Front Porch Sitting
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.
Outfit Of The Day – Take A Look
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.
The Long And Short Of Summer Shorts
Do You Hesitate About Wearing Shorts?
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.
Summer Fashion Gets An Upgrade With Espadrilles
Hi there everyone!
Today it’s about the shoes.
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.
Happy Birthday USA!
