Go For The Gold
The time is a Saturday afternoon in May – the occasion is going to see a community theater production that a friend of mine is starring in – the weather is cool and dreary. Ugh….not another weekend of winter clothes, not even ‘transition’ clothes will lift my spirit…..need to wear something that feels like the month of May, the promise of sunnier days ahead. That’s it! I am going for the gold!Bought this year at JCrew, a simple gold tee shirt was just what I needed to escape the dismal weather blues….this tee will be great with jeans, with a black leather skirt, with white shorts – but for this particular day, pairing it with white jeans and black leather accessories was the perfect balance for a cool spring day….because it is 100% linen, I went up one size to maintain a loose fit that is best for this fabric…
The jeans are waxed cotton, bought earlier this year from Calypso…..as I went to put them on, my head was screaming inside, “Please fit, please fit, please fit…”
Yeah, they fit. But after the cheeseburgers and homemade potato chips I indulged in recently, there was serious doubt. White jeans can be so unforgiving….;-) Spin classes, thank you….. A thin black leather jacket and black booties grounded the light colors from looking too summery while an ivory silk Burberry scarf added a touch of elegance…. The final touch, adding a bit of edginess, was a Prada handbag….large enough to hold a compact umbrella, just in case! Off to the theatre I go……
