I don't usually post much about clothes, but this is a special circumstance. It was necessary for me to figure out a mother of the bride outfit to wear to middle daughter Mary's wedding on Saturday. Although it is technically autumn now, the bride doesn't care for typical fall colors. She prefers lighter shades of pink, yellow or turquoise. All of the dresses I saw in stores came in two choices: black, or lurid prints. Eventually I cobbled together the following outfit:
The blouse is silk and has a tie in the back. The skirt has stitched down pleats and is lined. With them go these:
Perfect sparkly pink flats the same shade as the skirt. Since breaking my ankle badly in 2007 heels don't work for me anymore at all.
My old lady upper arms are no visual treat, so this sheer coverup will come in handy; plus, air conditioning is often too cold in public places so it will be useful in that regard, too. Here it is, a combination of thrift--the blouse and skirt--and new shoes and coverup. What do you think? Terrible? Okay? Get in the car and go shopping again right now? Your input is needed and welcome.
This is it till next week. We're heading to Austin tomorrow.
