My side ruffle skirt, in retrospect, was not the best choice for a day that had me dodging raindrops and wind gusts.
Look, and you will see that the side ruffle detail falls in the middle ! Oops! This was the second attempt to shoot this look, as shoot number one was too windblown . It seems I am wearing the side ruffle skirt in a new way; front ruffle skirt everyone! The new trend! Lol!
I am wearing my lace up tee as a peachy compliment to the red striped skirt by Tory Burch. I bought this skirt over two years ago at Goodwill for $15.00! My leaf printed umbrella, not my finest, is serviceable, light, and sturdy. Because it is so light, I carry it everywhere, and everyday ! I bought it at a mom-and-pop owned dollar store.
Target is opening up nearby and I think that this shop business will perish. Sad, the way the retail landscape is changing . I shop small whenever I can!
Styling ruffles at sixty can be tricky, so I relied on my funky floral platforms to change-up the vibe. A single statement ring and a simple side-pony cleaned up this almost fussy look!
So much rain has me down!
The skies are almost always grey and that is somewhat charming, but I do miss my aqua skies framing the tall buildings of Manhattan . As well, the frequency and ferocity of these storms has me worried about the future of our planet.
“Gotham City” vibes below in this snap of my neighborhood sky. Note, too, the way the tree is leaning in the wind.
But I smile and remember recent acts of kindnesses and generosity bestowed on me. August is always a month of quality family time, and what a large and fabulous family I have ! You have seen some shots on Instagram and I will post more soon. Today it is just a drizzle that comes and goes, so my perspective is broad and grateful even.
Peeking out on this dreary day!
Now let’s go back in time , perhaps two years ago, when I wore this skirt and was feeling festive!
See the post here, it s fun one and includes a wonderful model friend of mine.
Correct placement of the skirt for this photo shoot! My side ruffle skirt looks different here styled with black florals and cage booties. Hello, I am happy here! The world seemed simpler then, is that at all possible ?
So happy, I am dancing in the street!
What can I say, I was a youngster then at 57 or 58 ? It is much simpler to be optimistic when the sun is beaming in the sky, and the headlines are not so dire.
SUNNY DAYS, SUNNY MOODS. JUST NOT TODAY. STILL, I SMILE.
I wish you bright days ahead. Let me know who you have been faring! You know how!
