Ah, if I were assembling a wardrobe from scratch, this would be when I start grabbing striped tee shirts – you don’t even want to THINK about how often I wear a black and white shirt…
But I couldn’t find a print that really blew my hair back, so I went with a favorite color of many of us, just to see how well it would work in a range of outfits. For starters, it looks pretty cool with olive green:
Note that I tried to keep quite a few items from last week, just to see how versatile our accent color might be. Generally it worked pretty well!
This color is called Beach Glass – something that makes me think of ghastly gashes in the sole of one’s foot, and copious bleeding! This is much prettier, isn’t it?
This next outfit SCREAMS my name – this is a perfect example of the “Garconne” kind of style that I think is mine. Anything that you might see on a really dressy 4-year old boy is for me!
If you’re wise enough to invest in a neutral skirt and sandals early in the spring, you can wear any accent color you find! And don’t miss some fun bobby-pins to help control pandemic hair:
This is a stark juxtaposition of colors, but the scarf makes all the difference. I would never mind a good excuse to wear this scarf:
It doesn’t match – it blends! And last week’s hair clip and clogs still look good…
And if you feel that your swim suit top is too revealing, you can always pull a tee shirt over it – maybe lunch on the deck?
Now if the weather will just cooperate, we have a lot of good ideas for how to wear a tee shirt!
