Still SUMMER

News bulletin: It is still S U M M E R!!! While shopping over the weekend, I could not believe what I saw in almost every store... Fall clothing on display! I get it, advance planning is everything for marketing. However, can we fully enjoy the glory that is summer?! I LOVE SUMMER! Heatwave and all!  I intend to inhale every minute until the final drop.  Fortunately for me, I live in a mild climate.😊

Today's look features fall-like colors in lightweight separates that are totally ideal for summer. Take for instance these palazzo pants:  Wonderfully airy and comfortable.  I spotted them in-store while we were in Costa Rica. I tried them on but ended up not purchasing them there because the price was actually higher than they were here in the US. I purchased them online once we arrived back in the States. Interestingly, the brand lists the color as red. From my view, they are clearly orange!  I paired them with a mustard colored blouse, and bright brocade slides for a day in the city. 
Over to you, are you soaking up the very last bit of summer?!
Until next time Babes,
Xx

  12. That's always interesting to me what color companies say their stuff is. I have a striped top that is CLEARLY black and white in real life, but online they say blue and white? Weird! But, as always, you look gorgeous in these summer colors!
