My pearl embellished skirt was fun to wear on a warm weekend day. I added a sweet bow blouse and got some snaps by a local market. I love the punch of fresh flowers in the background. I wore no make up on this day. You can see what I look like without it, and why I need it. I am very pale. Blush, mascara, lipstick and a tinted BB cream with SPF is my usual regimen. Not today.
Below a head to toe shot. The light that day was not ideal, so the abundant pearls on my embellished pearl skirt did not show up as well. I added zippered zip sandals to mitigate the sweet factor. Bows, basket bags, and pearls can be an overly fem statement, but I liked this look and was in a girly, but no-nonsense mood. Hence, the bare face.
My dear readers know that I love a frill or two, or perhaps ten ! Embellished everything is good by me, but there must be a balance. One of my favorite pairs of shoes were bought 15 years ago for a song, and are adorned with oblong pearls. See this post for that look, and notice that I wore them with denim to dress them down!
Yes, I bought some flowers for a friend!
Manhattan is blissfully quiet on the weekends, on the rare weekend that I am here. Below you can see a serene city street that is so rare in my neighborhood.
This sculpture decorates the island on the Avenue. Park Avenue, where everything is pristine. This is my favorite place to walk as the traffic is lighter on this wide street, and this minimizes the fumes I inhale!
Later that day, I had this restaurant literally to myself. I met friends later!
We are due for a week of rain, so I am pleased to share this summery day with you.
Circling back to my OOTD, you should know that I bought both the bow blouse and skirt locally, and from mom and pop retail stores. My shoes are 4 years old. I like that the skirt is lined and is longer in the back.
A pearl Embellished skirt like mine is easy to find!
Okay, okay – the second skirt is not mesh but how could I not include such a fabulous skirt for inspiration by Erdem!
I hope you are well! I am sorry for not posting sooner, but my sister had a wedding party this weekend! Did I wear this pearl embellished skirt to that event? Ah, for that answer you must wait a while.
WISHING YOU JOY AND SUNNY SKIES!
