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.
Casual Friday style is much needed today. Because there is a lot to do. It’s the Friday before the July 4th holiday weekend! So, how do you manage all the errands and holiday prep while still remaining stylish? Always, my best advise is to keep it simple. Since, casual Friday means casual dressing and that’s one less thing to attend to on that never ending to do list. Today’s outfit is as casual as it comes. A white pocketed tee shirt, cropped white girlfriend jeans, canvas boat shoes, a couple white accessories, a messy bun hairdo and I’m out the door.
At last, the long 4th of July holiday weekend has arrived!
