Monday Musings- A Woman Who Inspired Me With Her Luxe Wedding Outfit And Flat Shoes

15 total views

Happy Monday ladies. Today I am musing about what I’m reading, and a woman who inspired me with her luxe wedding guest outfit with flat shoes.

One of my goals this year has been to read more books. My daughter set book goals for herself last year that I found staggering. I’m not that ambitious so I’m just making a concerted effort to read more. I include audiobooks in my count (although I’m not really counting) because I listen to them while I’m walking, ironing, driving, etc.

Currently reading

along the infinite sea paperback book
ALONG THE INFINITE SEA

This weekend,  I restarted Along The Infinite Sea, which I tried to get into last summer. I’m galloping through it this time, perhaps because I just finished another book by Elizabeth Williams so I’m enjoying her style of writing.

Newest shoes

The flats I’m wearing are my newest Margaux Demi’s in the color, Dove. I love a classic ballet flat but many hit right on the sore spot of my bunion. These come in tons of colors and widths, plus the drawstring is a working cord that I loosen on my left foot to give my bunion a bit more room. I debated buying another Cerulean Blue pair because I’ve almost worn them out, but I like this pale gray for summer.

BTW, when did the veins on the top of my feet get as ropey as the ones on the back of my hands?

Currently listening to

I think I read every book that Sarah Ban Breathnach wrote back in the 90s. She had a way of looking at life that appealed to me then, and now.

SIMPLE ABUNDANCE AUDIOBOOK

I actually still have my old stained copy of this hardcover, but I bought the audiobook because it’s read by the author and I find her voice as soothing as what she says. FYI, I still have 6 or more boxes of books in my garage that may never see the light of day unless we get going on those bookshelves I want.

Outfit of the week- Wedding Guest Outfit with flat shoes

Have you ever spotted a woman who was so beautifully dressed that you couldn’t help but stare? I saw one over the weekend as she headed into a wedding reception at a historic hotel. I hurried over to tell her how stunning she looked, which I believe we should all do more often. It also gave me a chance to get a closer look at how she put the outfit together.

SILK EMBROIDERED JACKET  /  SILK SHELL  /  PALAZZO PANTS  /  WALKING CANE  /  PEARL STUDS  /  PEARL NECKLACE  /  STEP AND FLEX FLAT SHOES / QUILTED SHOULDER BAG  /  LIPSTICK IN PEACH AMBER

She walked with the most amazing cane and wore flat shoes which goes to show, that the right flats needn’t derail a dressy outfit. Her makeup was soft and pretty, and she looked positively regal. Her jacket had less embroidery and looked closer to this one.

How often do you spot a woman you’d love to study closely to see how she puts herself together? Do you compliment her?

Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
