Feeling somewhat artsy or a bit Bohemian?
I've observed many women at our local Farmer's Market
dressed in tie dyed maxi dresses,
hair flowing and casual Birkenstock sandals...
Interesting woven baskets spilling over with a colourful array of healthy vegetables.
I think I am too conservative and too advanced in age to get away with this look,
I'd feel a bit of a fraud....like I was trying to reconnect with my youth.
I feel that dressing is a reflection of my personality so I must be genuine about my image.
(Even my dirty gardening clothes show the real me!)
I often get the urge to throw caution to the wind and be a bit more daring...
a bit more of a carefree spirit.
Here is my take on that vibe...
Chalet linen top
H and M tank top
I love the design of this asymmetrical top with the loose front detail
It's from Sunday's Snowflakes in Cordova Bay at Mattick's Farm.
The Jackpot pants are also from their store.
Mattick's Farm a great spot to shop if you haven't already been there...
a green grocer
card and gift shops
and a gallery.
a ladies clothing store has recently opened
it's a great addition to the mall
focusing on natural fabrics.
Adrienne's Tea Garden
is a perfect place to recoupe after an afternoon of retail therapy!
Abalone shell buttons add a bit of interest
and the bangles are getting another day out!
These earrings were made by my friend Peggy Turmer
at least 15 years ago
I still love the design.
Interesting jewelry is a great way to add flair to any outfit.
I apologize for this shot as it is a wee bit blurry but you get to see the whole outfit.
My hair is overdue for a cut and my hairdresser is on her summer holidays
so it will be a few more days...
When it comes to jumping out of your safety net...how do you dress?
Do you feel a bit like you are pushing the fashion envelope?
Have a great week!
