Today I was already dressed in a version of today's blog formula. The day has included errands, a haircut, downtown walking.
And because I promised Glory, I'm adding the kimono when I join a friend on a patio for a glass of wine.
Many times last summer I bewailed my lack of summer style. Gaylene was kind enough to share a secret. When it's too hot for toppers (my usual kick-it-up solution) try colour blocking with brights. This has been a revelation for me this summer. Simple, easy, and low fuss. So far, I've been doing it mostly with cobalt and various combinations -- black, white, cream. But I've also used navy and taupe and navy and white or cream, and white plus bright pink. Next year I think I will branch out and try a few more bright bags to give myself more options.
Thank you, Gaylene, for sharing your wisdom.
