Is there a cure for the summertime blues? (credits to Eddie Cochran and The Who). Yes, in the subtropics, we have loooong summers. By the end of August many of us want to stash our summer stuff and wear a sweater – just one sweater. Not yet, my friends, we have six more weeks of hot weather ahead.
Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!
The blues cure involves lightweight clothing that doesn’t touch you too much. One of my frequently worn summer “uniforms” is a light midi skirt and a graphic tee or print blouse. I usually wear sandals with this look, to keep it from coming across as too “office”. This lace vintage skirt and silky blue Pleione top were both thrifted at the Goodwill in Greenwich Village.
The day holds adventures and I’m ready for them, not actually feeling the blues at all. There are worse things in life than living in a hot climate, yes?
This weekend we went to see Once Upon A Time . . . In Hollywood, and gave it a solid “B”. Good acting and writing, and too violent to earn an “A” from me. Fifty-five year old Brad Pitt got an ovation for his shirtless scene, so there was that. : >
Are you still sporting your summer pieces, or are you able to wear . . . a sweater? Show us in the link-up!
