A fond farewell to wooly layers of cashmere sweaters, socks and scarves!
Welcome to sundresses, tank tops and flip flops!
James Perse pants
black V neck top Sympli
Print linen jacket Opus 204 Seattle
silver sandals Bandolino
In summer when the temperature climbs I wilt if I am not dressed in natural fabrics like cotton and linen.
Those fabrics breathe and allow air flow,
I opt for styles that are loose...
I bought some fabulous James Perse linen pants last year in black that are the coolest pants in my wardrobe.
They have a drawstring waist and wider legs...
maybe not the most flattering for my short frame but they keep me cool.
Comfort is imperative...
(I am not a slave to fashion)
Eddie Bauer Linen top
(last year's purchase)
a bit baggy
but a lifesaver when the mercury rises.
Water water water
when I feel a flush
it's water to the rescue.
If I am hydrated I avoid that feeling of "fuzzy brain"
Air conditioned spaces are few and far between here
so we open windows
have cold showers
sit in the shade!
Salads are on the menu for the season.
Crisp lettuce, fresh herbs and veggies.
eating light seems right.
Accessorizing has taken on a lighter note
a little arty
a little BOHO
lots of fun!
cooler than a scarf
easy to wear
adds a little something
not too serious
beads like these are easily found
thrift shops here are full of beads and baubles
I like to cruise through import and ethnic themed shops
and survey the wares
and summertime is a great time to try something a little different
give yourself permission to take a risk
be a little more of that "artsy cousin"
rather than that sensible "sturdy girl"
to understand these types you must hasten over to Lisa's blog
she is the High Wasp who has a firm grasp on Fashions for the Privileged!
who knows you might become a follower like me.
I owe a lot to Lisa
hers was the first blog that I followed
and a few months later I became a blogger myself
