On Sunday, we wore masks and attended socially distant church services and then visited with my parents. Mr. Mickey and I agreed that it felt so good to get dressed up for a change. We miss our ritual of getting dressed to go out for dinner.
My dress is from the previous spring season, and I found the mask just before they sold out online. I couldn’t resist wearing them together since they are so similar.
I bought the Kurt Geiger bag at Saks Off 5th last year, and I found the Katherine Kelly shoes on sale this year at Dillard’s. I don’t always try to match my shoes and bag, but since the dress is so busy, I wanted to downplay all of the accessories.
After the rain stopped, the sun came out, and it was a beautiful day. In the afternoon, we visited the VA in Johnson City to take a few photos. I am always drawn to the ornate details of the old buildings. Below are a couple of my favorites.
For the previous decade, I rarely wore a dress. When I visited Florida earlier this year, I realized my dear readers were right. Dresses are so much more comfortable on a summer day.
The lip color is Girls’ Night – Classic Red here. My skincare routine is here.
A few readers wrote to ask what I meant when I mention the vamp and visible arches of shoes in the previous post. In the picture below – arrow number one points to the vamp. If this area fits low on the top of the foot, it makes the leg look longer. Don’t wear these shoes with socks. They are designed to show the foot.
Arrow number two points to the arch. If there is a space between the heel and the front of the foot, it makes the ankles and calves look more slender than if the full sole of the shoe and heel is flat to the ground.
The shoes are by Franco Sarto from a couple of years ago. Similar shoes here, here and here.
