Something about coral pink and minty green makes me think of Miami Vice. Only I am not in Florida and not a detective. I wouldn’t know where to begin solving a heinous crime. A fashion dilemma on the other hand–I can handle that.
These are the only outfit photos to make it from the long weekend. By coincidence I happen to match the decor in the outdoor patio space at my In-Laws’ vineyard. Is this tasteful or tacky? You decide. This look pretty much sums up my style, while I was away. Easy. Relaxed. Light. Comfy. Warm weather is really the only time I feel it’s appropriate for women in their 30′s and up to wear shorter hemlines with bare legs. (I am wearing shorts underneath the tunic–indeed). My hair was bugging me, so I put on a vintage scarf to get it out of my face and it all felt very retro, which I loved. Outfits that tell a story or transport me to another time and place are fun! As the day went on, it got very hot, so I tied my hair up, tucking the ends of the scarf into my bun. And did you notice how I tucked in the collar of my khaki shirt? Changes the look. Takes it down a notch.
Do you like my $3 minty green sunnies? They add the right amount of pizzazz to my day. Life is good.
