Hello Ladies.I hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day.
I myself, am just mom to 2 little fur babies who are a great joy to me and make me smile everyday. My mom just recently spent about 3 weeks with us and we had a great time. Lots of talking, eating and drinking. By now, if you read the blog, you know one of my favorite past times is going to Vineyards. I enjoy tasting different wines and as the weather gets warmer sitting outside on the wicker couches and sipping Sangria. So, yes, we were at another Vineyard. I truly am snot a snob about anything except coffee, tea and wine.
Ha :-) It has rained nearly every day this past week, with severe thunderstorms which make my girl want to hide in the closet. So, today was one of those " I have to take advantage of it" Spring Days, at 80 degrees and sunny. I certainly have other hobbies ( music) but this is a favorite when the weather is just right. Soon it will be Charlotte POPS Symphony Season, yet another place to sit and enjoy the atmosphere.Today I am going to share a look that you may say.. Did I read "Corset-like" in the title, was that right? Well, when I went to NYFW last fall, and attended the Betsey Johnson show, I saw a look and idea that I thought may be fun to replicate. Perhaps it isn't for everyone, but I do like to experiment from time to time. Corsets were worn over blouses with skirts and wide leg pants. I thought the look rocked, so this is a bit more "conservative
" as the top isn't a corset in terms of lingerie, but a sleeveless corset-like top that I wear in the summer as is. So, when the idea came to me, I thought lets take a white eyelet pencil skirt for texture
a more proper white button down, and add the pink floral with the thin ribbon detailed top, ) and pointed pink sling back flats for a fun and romantic style. Side note: caught in drizzle and wind... tough on one's hair!
I added my lilac Coach bag for additional spring color.
