. . . AND I tried to steal an idea from Suzanne: lighten up my pics to give the glow of youth. But my hair still looked peevish, so off with my head. I do want to show you how I’m dressing for many of these 90 degree days, though.
I’m loving my linen separates. This look is covered-up, but it’s still light and breezy. Part of the trick is to not confine any body part: so no defined waist, bustline, neck or hip. Everything’s over-sized, but not too baggy. I felt good all day, both in the icy office and the steamy street.
The tunic (similar) is by Ralph Lauren, several years old and thrifted for about $5. The linen skirt (similar) is via ThredUp, an online consignment shop. It’s originally from CP Shades, a Sundance-y kind of company that features natural fabrics and is made in the US. It’s getting a lot of wear already, with this kind of top for work, and a tee for weekends.

The black tunic is a good backdrop for my lucky leaf necklace. The comfortable wedge sandals are by Bernardo, via eBay last year. You can’t see my gorgeous Egyptian bracelet from Bella’s Etsy shop, so here’s a better look:

What’s your formula for staying cool and looking office-appropriate?
Have a splendid day and stay fabulous,
