Over to Susan...
What do you wear while visiting with friends over cocktails in a courtyard when it is ninety degrees at eight in the evening?
I chose a very lightweight knit tank dress and a chiffon cascading vest from Covered Perfectly with minimal jewelry and sunglasses.
Metallic leather is considered neutral. I always enjoy wearing silver sandals since they bookend with my silver hair. Bookending is repeating the same color at the top and the bottom to pull a look together.
This vest is one of the most versatile items I have ever owned. This evening it served as a light, elegant top layer. I would never feel comfortable wearing this tank dress on its own, but I do enjoy wearing it often as a first layer. The dress is by Yon Design, and I bought it in a shop that has since closed.
Filmy lightweight layers have been components of all my most comfortable looks this summer. They are soft, feminine and elegant without making me feel even hotter.
The smooth silver cuff is from my old company, which I have since retired from.
A reader asked me this week why I don't show more new items on the blog. I rarely go shopping anymore, and I stopped accepting products to review because it became too overwhelming.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond.
The second fifty years are truly the best!
