Monday Musings- Summer Fabrics and Wardrobe Planning
Happy Monday, ladies. It was a drippy, windy, pretty nasty weekend for us. On Saturday, we went out for a very casual dinner to celebrate our 45th anniversary, then laid low to stay dry.
You may notice I look a little paler than usual in this photo. I, unfortunately, developed an eye infection last week that requires a course of antibiotic drops. My doctor also advised me to replace all my eye makeup, which broke my heart because I’d just bought new mascara and eyeshadow! Replacing everything is not going to be an inexpensive process, so I’m taking my time. And since I have to do it, I think it’ll be fun to try some new brands and products. I’ll keep you posted…at least my lipstick is safe.
I’m getting excited about our trip to visit my brother in Mexico. Where he lives has a very casual and relaxed atmosphere, so I’m in the mood to pack loose, comfy, and quite possibly colorful clothes. Colorful? Me? I won’t rule it out because while I adore neutrals and the whole coastal grandmother vibe, I’ve learned to never say never about fashion. I find brighter colors easier to embrace in strong sunny places.
The word boho keeps coming up as I think about what I want to pack for this trip. I’m trying to wrap my head around how I could incorporate that into my outfits because I’ve only ever dabbled in the look. I bought some wide-leg cotton gauze pants at a boutique over the weekend and love the vibe, so that’s a start. I love linen in hot weather but cotton gauze runs a very close second.
I’m still waiting for my gauze popover shirts to arrive, and so frustrated at how long it’s taking. Am I the only person who gets impatient waiting for deliveries? Maybe that’s why I love Amazon so much…fast delivery. This soft gauze shirt in resort pink is also on its way to me for the trip, as well as this cotton gauze skirt so I thought an outfit of the week was in order.
Outfit of the Week
I’ve always been a fan of pink with black and especially love it when the pink is heavily saturated, like this cotton gauze shirt. I love how it looks paired with this pull-on gauze skirt. These would be a great coverup for this black goddess suit that I shared with you when I wore it in Miami here. My lavender Birks have just arrived, but now I think I need this pink pair. They’re waterproof and great for walking along the shore. I added this MDSolarSciences sun-protective tinted lip balm that I love and now have in several shades.
I can’t remember the last time I’ve been so anxious for spring!
Thanks for reading, and be sure to wear what sparks delight and makes you feel confident.
Do you ever feel discouraged? Maybe like you’re not doing enough? I’ve been battling that feeling lately, and it…
