09 Jun Black Eyelet Swing Skirt
It was another sunny, hot day, here in the Carolinas. The sunshine just really uplifts my mood, and at one point my mother suggested that I purchase a SAD lamp for the winter. Well, it never gets that bad here in the winter; the dreary, grey days were saved for my previous place I lived, Pittsburgh, PA. There were many more grey days in the winter where one might need such a lamp. I do, however, need to put sunscreen on when we go out, as I am one to sit in the sun a bit more than my husband, he prefers the shade.
Today we found a nice place to take photos, though we found it amusing that cars were stopping as we were taking pictures. I felt like I was in Time Square with a professional photographer or something. I just get a kick when people slow down and people either look, or stop as if they are interrupting something very important. 🙂 Funny.
We spent the afternoon having lunch at Corkscrew, another favorite haunt, where I had a delicious dry but slightly fruity with notes of pear and citrus, glass of white wine. So good! I was really in the mood for a Martini at Bonefish, as they have muddled Watermellon or Strawberry martinis which are so good and refreshing, but they didn’t open until late. So, we had white wine, sat and enjoyed some tasty sushi, named “The Boss”, in other words, what my nickname is at home. ( just kidding!) It consisted of ahi tuni,row, tempura flakes, cream cheese, avacado white fish, and wrapped like a California Roll. This place makes THE best. Overall, a good day!
Initially I was looking at another eyelet in white, but the shape of this skirt coupled with the fact that it was very versatile in black was very appealing to me. Another Ann Taylor find. The top was an Ebay find about 3 years ago, from White House Black Market. ..And I got a NEW pair of shoes, approved by my Physical Therapist. They are by Clarks, and the Artisan line is so cushiony, she agreed along with the stability. I love them!! The earrings are vintage from Etsy, and the hairpin, 1928, some fun vintage looks to add.. More views of my new shoes in some upcoming posts.
