Yes, with various current events my creativity has been zapped, my mind, completely pre-occupied. But when things are done going up and start coming down, that's when your passions for what you love can be a wonderful high road. And when I mentioned not getting my skirt wet, I meant to say new skirt!
And that high road I chose to stroll down that day was actually pretty sea-level but the breeze made all the difference. I chose to wear a pair of glossy Taryn Rose flats as Theo and I observed the skyline from a different angle. These flats still have a gloss after all these years so of course, they have prime real estate in my Tiny Closet.
I've never owned a muscle tee but always wanted a few in muted, white and nude tones. Muscle style tees in those colors make the look so fresh and cool! And the opportunity came up to sport one finally when Theo cut up his old "Original Gangster" tee and gave it to me. Actually, he cut it up for himself and I took it and wore it that day and he didn't say anything.

And under my manly muscle tee, I wore a sweet cotton spaghetti strap tank fit for a ballerina. Sans tee, the simplicity of the tank, voluminous pleated skirt, and shiny flats made a more classic, feminine ensemble that I thought I'd show as well. And speaking of transitions, this skirt will also do very well come Fall and Winter. I'm thinking black tights, stiletto booties and my gorgeous chocolate wool wrap, hello!
So, back and at it with my usual [Rebecca Minkoff] bag of tricks (and hopefully some new ones?) I am feeling the tingle of creativity trickling through my veins again. Here's to a relaxing long weekend and a sumptuous day of un-laborious activities.
Happy Labor Day!
