Hi my lovelies, how are you today?
Well, I hope, and enjoying these days of September for all that they offer, no matter where you are.
How am I? I'm a tad traumatised. I broke a tooth on Friday, late afternoon when there was no chance of getting it looked at till Monday. Monday arrives and I was so lucky to be able to see my dentist at 9.30am and he managed to patch it up. But it is just that, a patch up, and there's a bigger job and a bigger bill ahead. TP says it's something we oldies just have to expect at our age - old teeth break. Depressing, eh?
So let's find some reasons to be cheerful.
Well here's reason Number 1.
My beach dress, 2nd Loved.
Other bloggers are diving into autumn, but
I'm clinging on to summer in my beach dress.
I just love this dress and it's really been working its little socks off this summer with all the gorgeous sunny days we've had.
All too late, now when I look at these photos, am I seeing the opportunities this dress offers other than just throwing it over a swimsuit and slipping my feet into flip flops.
You see, for 15 years I've tunnel visioned it as something for the beach only and as such, I've not really taken pics of it so I've not truly looked at it.
Only now, because I snapped it for the blog, do I see its many colours for accessorising and only now can I see that with the right accessories it's so much more than just a beach dress.
And I see this baby going in many directions.
Do you have a colourful dress you can study, pulling out colours to accessorise with? Creating new outfits, creating new scope for your dress?
Take some photos and find out what your
dress can really do for you!
Here's what I'm seeing from this little beach dress, just by shopping from my wardrobe:
1. Red espadrilles and necklace
2. Coral cardi with espadrilles
3. Orange cardi or green cardi, metallic sandals
4. Turquoise embellished cardi and necklace, pewter sandals
5. A blue scarf as shrug or kaftan
6. White denim jacket and pumps (sneakers).
If we have the weather, I'll try a few of those combos and post them.
If not, then oh well, let's squirrel those ideas and have lots of fun with this little dress next summer.
Because now I know that this little dress is ...
More than a beach dress,
More than a beach dress to me!
A la perchoine.
