12 Aug How One Accessory Can Amplify a Look
I am wearing my ray of sunshine maxi dress. Well, that is what I call it, as I just love the warm mustard yellow tone of the dress. You know I like my accessories and adding one special piece to an outfit, can certainly amplify the look.
We do like to experiment with locations when taking photoshoots, and you start to get a feel for the best lighting. I was in the shade here, by a large tree on our nature trail, but the light was a bit too dark near my face. We bought reflectors, now if only I could find an assistant to hold them up to my face while hubby takes photos. Hmm. First world problems eh?
Anyhow, we have been looking at cars/SUVs as the air conditioner decided to go kaput on our Lexus. Granted it is nearly 200, 000 miles on it, and we have dumped moola into the air conditioning several times, it was time to send it to the auto graveyard! So, in the process of looking for cars, we have had to drive ours around to look at others. Boy, talk about a built-in sauna! I had sweat stains on my sweat stains! So, needless to say, we took pictures locally where I could walk to the photoshoot until the air is once again present in a new vehicle!
I just love mustard. Not the condiment, the color. If you must know I prefer herb aoli or mayo. 🙂
This was an inexpensive maxi dress from H &M I bought years ago, and I liked the slits in the front. ( The only air conditioning I have) and light fabric. One thing, however, is you do have to iron it, and it will show sweat if you get too hot. Other than that, it is a fun style to wear if you are out and can be kept cool.
When I saw this wooden belt, with its browns, olive, yellow and orange tones, I thought “How groovy!”
It’s got a 70s color scheme going on, but also will look fabulous year-round. The colors are very conducive for Fall, and the woven leather is not stiff, but rather comfortable to wear I knew I wanted to pair it with this dress straight away!
Gold jewelry also looks great with mustard. Can yo have too much gold, sunniness in the Summer time? I can’t!
I wore gold ball drop earrings c/o Soft Surroundings, and this wide gold cuff, which was also gifted via Soft Surroundings this year.
I repeated the love for gold in my espadrilles I am wearing as well. I love the platform and strap making them very comfortable too.
