Fedora style and vintage Towle


Imagine yourself on holiday  in a sultry, breezy  island destination…sitting at an outside cafe in Barcelona or…soaking up the colorful coastline of Croatia near the Adriatic sea…this look takes me there, whilst conveying casual  tres chic. I am brimming with thoughts’ for ways to wear this basic black maxi…here I layered on the vintage with a highly detailed sliver/turquoise ring, Towle pewter chain and pendant necklace, and bag….not overlooking the perfect opportunity for a fun fedora as a welcome  accompaniment to this anything but ‘tourist’ vacation style…Enjoy!

Orange crush … And a date with Dali

Sunday’s arrival was eagerly anticipated, as I had planned a secret adventure for Josh’s (hubby) birthday surprise. Of course, I couldn’t embark on said adventure void of an ensemble so worthy…here I featured a striped short with a preppy twist for a day date to the Dali museum in St. Petersburg,Fl. The exhibit was amazing…A collection of Andy Warhol’s works were being displayed conjointly on the same floor… An unusual treat!…My choosing this eye-popping shade of orange layered over a chambray button down, was a nice punch to an unexpected collaboration of classic pieces( much like the exhibit) for a major payoff! Happy weekend loves…Enjoy!!!
