Hello loves and happy Tuesday ! Today I am featuring a tiered, silk skirt that I paired with a pleather and fleece sweatshirt, and my super comfy Geox trainers. This photo shoot was a few days ago and the temps were in the mid to high 70s. It was warm out! The fan was a cool visual but also very helpful, while out that day. Sneakers and a silk skirt may seem like an odd combo, but it worked in a hi-lo sort of way!
My silk skirt is light and breezy with the lace tiers and rows of open lace.
I added a casual sweatshirt ; short-sleeved because of the warm air. I love the juxtaposition of a silk skirt with a sweatshirt. Adding the tweed sneakers was also a fun element.
I had fun wearing this black silk skirt. It felt soft and fluid, and rustled just a bit when I walked. I made the ruby, pearl, and aquamarine necklace years ago. I liked the glint of gold with this sweatshirt, and the faceted stones added some color.
Earlier in the afternoon , I enjoyed what felt like a summer walk. Talk about leaning in!
I will admit this was a complicated day emotionally. There was another tragedy in the city, and the news gets me down. I remind myself of the sweet and simple truth; there are more acts of kindness than acts of violence. I hold onto that thought. Below a fun shot of my friend and I. Lets call it the sneaker stand-off.
Pictured below- my color blocked bag, Theory jacket, and the city street that day; red flowers still blooming and matching the color of my handbag. The tiers of the black silk skirt stand out against the red street sculpture.
Below I added varsity jacket in black and burgundy. I don’t need it outside, but it is good for inside where the air-conditioning is blasting. Did I mention that my skirt was thrifted for $6.00? Well it was, and the proceeds went to charity. Win-Win! Also, my theory varsity jacket was an eBay find !
And I close with a candid that captures another mood than the one above. It’s not a good photo of me and that is fine. It is real, and life has been, shall we say complicated. Still, lets keep the Peace!
Thanks for coming by and reading! Happy week!
