Oh there you are Self. That’s what you’re doing. This is what you’re thinking.
Looking at my piles of clothes reminds me: Edit.
Asks me: What do you need & What is need? What do others need?
Grins at me: What do you want? And says: Find joy there.
It’s a good day to design & throw back things that aren’t quite right. Yet.
Simple things are key. Drawing out what makes them charming is my biggest wish. for me and for you:
Like papery thin poppies that grew up among the paving stones. Literally blooming where the fell, or blew – or both. Have I ever mentioned how ratty the stalks of bachelors buttons look to me? But I wouldn’t trade their blue blue flowers for the world. Neither would the bees. More on that tomorrow…
What do you wish hung in your closet? What piece of clothing do you find yourself grabbing again and again when you want to look good but feel cool?
Let me know. I’m interested. Really.
pin stripe slacks.
A particular blue wrap I have… I regularly wish it existed in nine different colors in my closet (said wrap is currently on loan with Roxanne in California… eagerly anticipating its return)!
Ah pinstripes! Ah -fabulous stretchy wrap things – you know I love these both!
soft a-line, high-waisted cotton skirt. just below the knee.or just above. possibly lined. possibly swiss dot or something similar (obviously not of the hand-done variety- that would be epic). mostly likely a darker color so I can wear it every day and sit in the grass and not stain it beyond repair. simple. cool. what you didn’t want that much detail? ha ha! oh! and perfect light weight cardigans…
ps. the poppies clearly belong there. that is why there is a wee space in the walk there. it is the poppy home!
OK! fitted, black, floor-length, jersey/knit, racerback, empire waist dress w/ bronzed leather, strappy flat sandals and a long necklace w/ wooden beads on gold thread. <3 …and a mimosa with you on that fabulous front porch of yours!
I agree about batchelor buttons! hmmm. For me the go-to item is a long jersey skirt in an earthy color.
Thanks Karen – I’m totally with you there. I have a skirt design called “the daily skirt” for a reason! 🙂
