They may be sold out by the time I wear them, so we did a photo shoot on a recent warm afternoon to show you some of the gifted items from my friends at My Fair Lady. I have been shopping with them for about three years because they carry many of the styles of tops, jackets, and pants I enjoy wearing. It is very convenient to find so many of your favorites in one place.
This top by Focus will be perfect to wear all summer because it is made from crinkle texture 100% cotton and has a low comfortable neckline. It also stands away from the body and has interesting design details. I added jewelry with turquoise accents and included the cute summer box bag from my site and wore the basic crepe pants style 709 also from my site here. The sandals are a couple of years old from Dolce Vita. The only time I wear flip-flops is when I have just gotten a pedicure or I am on the beach. When I wear a casual summer outfit, I often wear thong sandals with a strap around the back. I only wear these black sandals with lightweight black pants. If I wore white pants or faded denim I would wear nude or pewter color sandals.
Here are a few of my tips for adding accessories: Wear statement earrings with statement rings or a stack of fun bracelets. If I wear a statement necklace, I only wear tiny studs to cover the (single) piercing in my ears. My formulas always have a reason behind them. When I wear bold earrings with a bold necklace, there is way too much going on in one place and I would feel like a Christmas tree. If the neckline and the bodice of the top I am wearing is plain, I often wear a long necklace with or without a pendant. The reason is that the necklace creates a deep V-neckline which is more flattering with my roundish face and ample bust.
I am careful about the type of bracelets I wear. A chunky bangle bracelet or wide cuff can draw attention to your hips and make them appear larger. I prefer to wear a more delicate bangle bracelet or stack of three slender bracelets or a large link bracelet. This formula also makes my arms look less chubby. With this casual outfit, I wore cute statement earrings and one similar statement ring on each hand. Silver looks best with my skin tone, but I ignore the fact that shoes and bags most often include goldtone hardware. If those items have the right attitude and body color, I don’t worry about mixing metal colors when the gold will be worn away from my face.
The trend toward smaller handbags is one I welcome. When I am going out to run a quick errand or having lunch with friends, it makes sense to take only the essentials. I save my larger top handle bags to carry when I know the day will be long and I need to take more items with me.
The lip color I am wearing is Scarlet by Beautycounter here. I wear mostly Beautycounter color and also use all the skin care and cleansing items. The Nourishing line is wonderful for all skin types. I am a Senior Manager with Beautycounter. I have been using these products since last fall and I am very pleased with the performance. The nail color is Dutch Tulips by OPI.
