I remember my grandmother telling me that one of the hardest things about living into your nineties, is having to say goodbye to all those from your generation who pass before you. Last week made me feel as if I had suddenly turned ninety.
Losing loved ones, dear friends or pets can take away our sparkle for a long time. I fully understand why people wear black or other somber colors when they are grieving. Even a brightly colored scarf seemed like too much last week.
When Mr. Mickey wanted to take me out to dinner on Wednesday, I knew he wanted to lift my spirits. It was time to change emotional gears and move forward. Wearing my favorite blue/black/charcoal jacket by BCBGeneration and other comfortable black pieces I often reach for, made getting dressed easier. The pants are old from Chico’s. The bag is old from Saks Off 5th. The low boots are by Gianni Bini from Dillard’s last year. The necklace is by French Kande here. The three-quarter sleeve top is one of the basics on my site here.
In memory of Linda Tipton, Willie Zuniga, Jack Seaton and Mr. Beasley. Each of you made the world a much better place while you were here.
