It’s so nice to start my work-week with you!
It’s only early May, but my thoughts are turning to the inevitable rise in temperatures coming our way soon.
I’ve taken stock of my summer clothes and concluded that I don’t need a thing — except, perhaps — a pair of wide-legged white pants because this pair have become thin to the point of transparency/obscenity.
Part of the reason that I don’t need a thing is because I bought three dresses at the end of last summer during the seasonal sale.* I also have a set of antique turquoise beads (acquired March 2018) that I need to make something of post-haste.
My focus this summer shall be making old things fresh. Like so:
You last saw this top in 2016 paired with straight-legged, tropical weight wool pinstriped pants. So many adjectives (and compound adjectives) to describe these pants — perhaps unnecessary since I have included a link to the old post and you could see these things for yourself.
What, you may be asking, is my “baby face”? It’s the expression on my face when I catch sight of a baby passing by. The Photographer can always tell when a cute baby or dog has caught my eye.
Back to business! These wide-legged pants are so dramatic with this sculptural top. Combined with a pair of sharp mules, it’s a different look.
I bought this top on Gilt several years ago (clearly, if I was showing it to you in 2016) and it still looks cutting-edge. It will never be in or out of style. It simply is style.
I am wearing a black camisole underneath for coverage.
Note: In these photos, my bag neither matches nor relates to the red in my top. But I thought it did in natural daylight. Hmmmm.
My best friend liked this top so much after seeing it on this blog, she bought it, too. I am Influencer!
Personal Message: Mudge, do you still have this top? I think you should get these pants, too. And the shoes. Then come visit and we can walk around the Mall unnerving people like the twins in The Shining.

* If I am being totally honest, I also bought an additional summer dress last month. So really no need for anything more.
