Hello Ladies

Time for Turning Heads Tuesday today! The way things have been going lately, I feel like my head is turning, or is it spinning? Just lots to do it seems even in the summer.  I want to say “Thank you” to all of you who are such great friends, participating in this link up, really means alot to me. Last week, we hit a record in high temps and blog participation with 152 linkups!

I do spend time going through each blog and commenting, , I enjoy reading each and seeing the styles in which I get inspiration each week. I would love to be able to follow you  on INSTAGRAM as I am quite active there, and I can comment on other posts that you have for the week in addition to this post here on Turning Heads Tuesday. I think it would work well, and you could follow back.

I want you to know I try and visit people’s blog’s as often as I can, other than this day, it does take me about 4 days to comment, unless I want carpel tunnel !So, it would be lovely if we could share other looks etc via this medium, if you like.

It was a day of Brunch and blogging t we went and had a cool and refreshing watermelon martini with some scrumptious eggs benedict and fruit.The martinis are muddled fresh and so delicious on a hot summer day! I was in the mood for brightness, not only with the sun beating down on me, but in my outfit today.Wearing all Ann Taylor, I brought out this larger pink and citrine floral print and paired it with this silk pink ruffled blouse. I added my floral white choker and pearl drop earrings for a lady like look, complete with my favorite peep toes from Zara. I have a propensity for florals and pink! Yes, really! I do enjoy bright colors but one needs to keep in mind if flatter one’s skin tone. Pink seems to work on me as a redhead, despite what one has ever heard on the matter. Maybe there are two or three redheads out there that dont look great in pink, and that is where that rule started!

    I love this bright and summery look, especially the printed skirt. I need to look for a floral print skirt like that for myself, seeing how good it looks on you. It’s so easy to get into the habit of wearing muted solids, but wearing a colourful print can really brighten your own and everyone else’s spirits for the day!

      Thank you! Yes, I have a few printed skirts and as you can tell I love florals, a pencil skirt would look great, and I do like bright colors, a far cry from the all black I wore mostly in college!
      I appreciate your comment!

    Love this post! I adore the sea green top and think the poem so apt! The texture of it, as well as the skirt and jewelry is wonderful. Perfect together, I also love dragonflies— !
    You look stunning here, of course, and I love the ladies you feature, too, I am going bananas , too, over that top! Great style on display here today!

      Thank you Elle, you are the first to comment on the peom. Walt Whitman was a bit too deep and not relatable with the post. I aprpreciate that you loved the outfit, the skirt is so versatile and the top is sheer, but you can hardly tell. Me too on the dragonflies! They were such a wonderful company to collaborate with!! Hoping you can join in one day ! xx

    The posing comments had me smiling. It’s so hard posing without feeling it’s so staged! Well I do and of course, to a great extent it is staged! But we still want it to look vaguely natural and not like we’re grimacing which is often how I feel! But onto the outfit. Oh, this makes me want to hand you a cooling cocktail it’s so summery and fresh. I love the rippling ruffle effect on the pink top. Gives a lovely feel of texture and added interest to the outfit. Gorgeous.

    Such a beautiful outfit! I love your fashion pose comments too. So funny. I will follow you on Instagram. I am learning myself that it’s easier to show support for other bloggers using other social media than just going to their blogs which can be so time consuming. I have just started using google plus too. That one is awesome. You just scroll down your feed and plus (their word for ‘like’), and you can also leave a comment without ever going to their blog. Amazing! Only problem is, not many bloggers have google plus, but I sure wish they did!

    Oh Jess, you made me laugh on your comments to pictures. It reminds me my “photoshootings”. Your outfit is lovely, girly and summery. I would like to say: Please, more PINK in our lives. o)
