Tribal Baubles

Greasy sunscreen, the smell of charcoal, and the taste of burnt hot dogs. Not wanting my finest frocks to smell like barbeque, what should I wear?

I decided to go with one of my favorite tops for the summer, a vintage Leslie Fay knit. I opted out of wearing a belt at the peplum to make way for more food in my tummy, although now I have stylist’s remorse for putting my appetite before my fashion sense. To spruce up the pallid top, I added some colorful tribal jewelry collected from my past world travels. Every time I put on this necklace, I am reminded of the sights, the food, and the people of the village from where I skillfully bargained for it.

Never mind the onlookers behind me, and the smell of barbeque wafting through the air, I attempted to find my Zen in a shady spot under the trees. The hues of blue-greens in the necklace and bracelet helped calm my soul on a beautiful summer day.

If only I didn’t go for seconds, I would’ve achieved the perfect lotus pose.


Arm Candy

Vintage clip on earrings I have galore, dainty pendant necklaces, chains, and pearls I have a plenty, but arm candy I do not.

One of my New Year’s style resolutions is to add some more baubles to my empty wrists. I love my vintage gold-toned cuff watch (which I wear in almost every post), but I realize I need to add a bit more pizazz and bling to my outfits. On my wish list: chunky bangles, spikes, wrap-arounds, charm bracelets, chains, and watches. I love me some studs too, but since Ryan and Joseph aren’t available, these gold ones will do.
