April Overcast

Wearing my hair pulled back with a kerchief as a headband has always reminded me of I Love Lucy episodes. I sometimes think my inner style maven is 1950s, which would make sense as I was born in 1954 and grew up admiring my mother's outfits of the 50s and 60s.

The day was damp with a chill in the air, and after a weekend of wearing pants and sweatshirt snuggling on Saturday, all I wanted to do was wear a dress. Tomorrow the forecast is for chillier and much damper (think: rain) weather, so it may be pants but either way I get to wear my new polka dot boots (gotta have something to keep the spirits up!)

I have had this patterned Eddie Bauer leaf dress for probably 15 or 20 years. It has held up wonderfully thru machine washing and on-hanger air drying. Being it is sleeveless, I am wearing a J.Jill short sleeve green tee underneath and J.Jill knitted bolero-type sweater on top. Grey leggings by Uniqlo.

Turquoise earrings a gift from my older son about five years ago, blue and green stone bracelet a gift, also about five years ago, from a friend of my younger son's, and lotus flower necklace a gift from a friend in celebration of my 200-hour yoga teacher graduation last June.
