19 May Turning Heads Linkup – Dark Olive Blouse with Jean Skirt
I hope you are well.
It is time for some neutrals today on the blog. I love wearing color, but also equally enjoy wearing some beautiful neutrals, especially in the summer.
Did you ever notice in pictures sometimes your makeup doesn’t show as well? I am working on putting more on for the camera, and really loved how this lipstick looked for today’s look. It was gifted to me with a package of other goodies from REALHER, in an orange-red shade. Typically, I go for more of the blue-red with my skin tone, but this surprised me how much I liked it! ( moral- try new shades!)
I love safari looks and look in soft neutrals for the summer months, and we are almost there. Spring kind of passed us by with all things Coronavirus, and we are entering warmer months. This day we took photos, it was 85 and hot! We actually got to experience a bit of Spring this year, which isn’t always common for Charlotte. Many years, there may be a few weeks of Spring- like weather, then boom! it’s summer!
Finding shade under a tree, hubby photographed me in a new dark olive blouse with flutter sleeves, just enough of a touch to make it interesting. I wanted to wear one of my favorite scarves from Mango, my snakeskin scarf, and find that I may reach for smaller neck scarves instead of necklaces in the summer.
Gold bauble earrings adorned my ears, as my ever– popular straw circle bag was the perfect accompaniment.
My favorite button- down jean skirt Is styled and worn with my new tan-brown croc strappy sandals. I love the heel on these and the strappy style, which is in now and very elegant.
I mentioned yesterday that we had a great Spanish Tapas meal with my sister and niece coming up again and sitting in the yard. She brought a delicious Grenache, which is one of my favorite fuller- bodied reds. We went for a 3 mile hike in the woods near our house too, with the pups. I think people get a kick out of seeing Shih tzus on a long walk in the woods, as you don’t always see the smaller dogs.
I’ve also been able to now get my dry needling treatments again! Today is the day, so I will be wearing my mask, as well as my therapist. It is over an hour of needling, but boy do I need it! So thankful they can start up again.
Love the back detail.
