24 Jul Turning Heads Linkup -Linen Shirt Dress with Straw Bag and Scarf
Hubby, pups and I decided to take a trip down to Freedom Park for this photo shoot. It is near one of the more popular green ways and often where my hubby walks the puppies while I am in PT. Not fair, I know.. me getting needled while he enjoys the outdoors! Anyway, I have had this Zara linen off white shirt dress for a few weeks and wanted to put together a look with neutrals. This week is all about whites and neutrals on the blog. If you missed yesterday’s post- read – White Eyelet Look with Neutrals for Summer.
I used to be against linen, having it wrinkle, and getting into a tizzy when it would crease. But hey, I am over it! It keeps me cool and is stylish and easy to wear. I now have 3 linen dresses I can rotate in the summer, as it can get pretty hot here. Read my prior post, Trending Now-Linen.
The lighting was lovely this day as the sun hit my hair. Hubby just bought a reflector and diffuser to use for photos in the sun. He just got it, so we didn’t have time to use it yet, but this would be the perfect time. The areas where there is more sun on my face, then shadow on the other, we can use for a more uniform photo. But you try and then, see what you need to do.. So in the future!
Here I am wearing my Andre Assous Cadence leather espadrilles. I love them! So comfortable and they give just a bit of height. I, of course, added my round straw bag, which has gotten much use this summer. I added a leopard scarf to the bag, and also tried it as a scarf accessory around my neck. I think I like both ways, but preferred it on the bag. Large, cream flower earrings adorned my ears, another statement earring buy from Baublebar. Love these similar pair.
New wine bar and Eyebrows
Hubby likes to be rewarded for his efforts, so we went to a new wine bar near the park, called, Foxcroft, where we had a delicious lunch of mushroom, cheeses and basil flatbread with a crisp, clean, fruity Chenin Blanc, perfect for the warm afternoon. Since the pups were with us, they garnered a lot of attention and met with “Pickles” an adorable Morkie ( maltese, yorki) 3 year old pup who was sweet on Gibson. I was a lovely afternoon, and let’s face it, it is a treat for me as well! And it wasn’t a one stop shop, there was a Eyebrow bar next to the winebar, so in between sips of Chenin Blanc, I had my eyebrows threaded and shaped. I can multitask! Killed 2 eyebrows with one stone 🙂 My “Brooke Shields” eyebrows ( well, that’s what I called them in middle school ) needed some grooming.
Tried styling with a brown belt added instead of the cloth belt.
Scarf tucked into shirtdress styled, or worn on straw bag.
