Summer Favorites

A few years ago, we discovered a delightful little shop that had just opened for business. An artist was selling the items she and her very creative family made. I fell in love with the color of this one-of-a-kind silk ruana that I’ve been wearing every summer since. It is the perfect summer topper over a silk camisole and comfortable, loose-fitting pants.

You can connect with Sibel, the artist and owner of Cybele Boutique here.

I added these earrings to my collection this summer, but I’ve already worn them several times. They are very lightweight and the perfect touch with sandals and a straw bag. Several rattan earrings styles are here. (Use the code SAS10 for $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.)

The bracelet and ring have been in my collection for more than a decade. Similar bracelet here. Similar ring here. The bag is the same one I’ve been carrying for about three years. I tucked the strap inside to carry it as a clutch. Similar bag here. The sandals are by Sam Edelman from last year. Similar sandals here. The camisole is here. The white pants are here.

Mr. Mickey and I were on our way to Gourmet and Company to enjoy another delightful dinner, including his favorite deviled eggs and an excellent pasta and mushroom dish. His look also includes classic basics. Similar items are linked. BlazerShirtPantsShoes.

  1. Gorgeous!!!! Both of you, love Mr Mickey’s shoes, so classy.

    I just received the pearl wishbone earrings from Beauty In Stone on your site, they are beautiful! My ear lobes are dropping???? I don’t need heavy earrings but like them to at least show up on my ears. They are so perfect, lightweight and can barely tell I’m wearing them. The rattan pair in today’s post look awesome for summer! Thanks for your discount Susan!!!

  2. I love how you show how accessories can be used to elevate very basic clothing items. I am glad to see Mr. Mickey is looking so well.

  3. Love seeing you and Mr. Mickey out on the town. You both look so elegant. And thank you for wearing things you already have in your closet, that ruana is absolutely beautiful, why would you want to buy something new?

  4. Beautiful, you look like a perfect summer sky!

    Link is for the Cybele Boutique Facebook page. Do they have an actual website, showing items and prices?

  5. I agree with Kathy, Mr. M’s shoes are so classy! The ruana is lovely and so is the red one in a previous post. I follow Sibel on Facebook, a very unique boutique. Today I placed my order for a second pair of the rattan earrings from Beauty in Stone. Thank you for the discount!

  6. Hi Susan, As we made our twice annual pass from South to North, I always wave to you as we pass the Johnson City exit. One day we’re stopping for lunch at Gourmet and Co…but our dog prevents us!
    I would like to order those earrings and a bracelet, but you have pieced ears? As you told us several years ago..As you age..cover that you get pierced or clip on? I kinda hate clip on, but hopefully these, if pierced style are light? And thanks for the discount! 52 degrees in NH this AM…Hope you are staying cool..checking out the ruins as well. Love your advice!

  7. Lovely post as usual, Susan! That ruana is an heirloom piece and I’m in the Mr Mickey shoe fan club also. These are very cool and my favorites are his two-tome saddle oxfords!
    May I ask what the deviled eggs are garnished with?

I blogged for five years as Fifty, not Frumpy. Now that I am in my sixties, I am sharing ideas and inspiration for using and loving what you already have.

Thank you!
