My summer style selections for Father’s day work for any hot summer day. I wore a striped gauzy top, a tiered and pleated skirt in an eggshell silk, and a metallic straw bag. Dangling earrings caught the bright sun!
Summer Style Selections:
Gauze top By Lucky Brand, is here and on sale ! The strategic placement of the ruffle makes it so a bra is not required! My tiered silk skirt was a thrifted find, but similars are here and here from Bluefly. I also found my metallic straw bag with golden chain details at LVIS, but I like this and this as alternatives.
Fathers’ day was a real tribute to both my husband of 34 years, his father now nearing 90, and also to my brother in law who hosted us at his lovely country club in suburban New York. The pristine setting was a picturesque place to celebrate with lush green lawns and wonderful food and service. To whit, these photos below:
These wonderful desserts tempted, but no sugar for me! ( autoimmune diet!) Red jello desserts and a creamsicle flavored confection! YUM ALERT!
My sweet and brilliant sister-in-law, a well-renowned top doctor, and a department head in a prestigious hospital, took these shots. Her success and beauty has not gone to her head. She is so down to earth, and a wonderful mother to three adult women who are all beautiful and accomplished in their own right. In fact on Father’s Day, while we celebrated our men, I was most taken with the delightful, buoyant, and stunning women at the table. But I digress…
Standing in the sun I wear my summer style selections.
Yes, I am also wearing SPF and standing in the shade!
I love off the shoulder looks, see this post for why, but am not quite as enthusiastic about the more contrived one shoulder look. However, I do love when a top such as this, falls naturally off one shoulder. Readers, remember to choose light cotton, in gauze such as this, or cotton lawn in your summer style selections. Avoids synthetics in this heat!
I truly hope you enjoyed your Father’s Day! For me, it was a happy one, but I did experience mixed emotions, as my father and brother are no longer with me. But I dwell on the happiness and the beauty around me!
Tell me about your holiday AND YOUR favorite summer wardrobe pieces! YOU KNOW HOW!
