Growing up on a farm in western North Carolina, going for a walk in the woods is a symphony for my soul. In the springtime, when wildflowers are everywhere, it is an even greater pleasure.
Virginia Blue Bells are now entirely blanketing the floor of many woods and forests in my area.
On Sunday, we took a short walk in the woods at one of our city parks, Winged Deer. Later we visited my parents and then went out to lunch. I wore a cardigan by Cali & York over a tank by Peck & Peck via Stein Mart. The jeans are by Michael Kors. The city sneakers are by Ralph Lauren via Dillard’s. (The only time I wear trainers with jeans is when I am walking briskly around the neighborhood for exercise early in the morning.) The sunglasses are by Tori Burch.
When I share a new post announcement on Facebook, I often get requests for more casual looks. If you look closely, you will notice that I usually start with a tank top and jeans. I don’t know how to get more casual, but that is usually the beginning. My love of shoes and accessories might be the difference. I never leave home without finishing my look with accessories. My guidelines for getting dressed are always:
1. Dress for the weather.
2. Dress for the event.
3. Dress for your personality in what suits your body shape.
