I do like living in Florida. The traffic is easy, no snow to shovel, and the ocean is in my backyard. Never mind our miserable Governor or bugs as big as cats. It’s mostly wonderful. It doesn’t hold a candle to my ultimate destination – NYC – but I’m blooming where I’m planted.
I miss the changing seasons. I lived in the Northeast till my early 30’s, and I always got a thrill from those first cool days. Taking the sweaters out of mothballs and wearing boots and gloves. It’s still the look I love most, of all the seasons.
The temperatures are still in the mid 80’s here, but I’m giving the side-eye to my summer clothes. It’s been since April, after all. They’re tired.
So I challenged the heat with a long skirt that can transition to cooler days. The traditional hippie/boho skirt (similar) was thrifted for a dollar, and takes me back to my late teen years, before electricity. The knit linen top (sim) was purchased new from Banana Republic, and I advise: size down on tees at BR. This one is oversized and gets bigger when I wash it! Fab octopus pendant is a gift from Sheila.
Some options for later: blazers and cardigans up top:
And booties and tights underneath:
