Seersucker Summer


Since I am no longer in my 40s, I have decided to give my blog a new 50s spin; mainly from a fashion and style standpoint. I am going to show you how I dress from casual to a bit more at times. I'm hoping it might give you some ideas for your own wardrobe. I am not going to tell you what creme to use to prevent wrinkles or other age related issues. There are beauty blogs for that and they know a lot more than I do on the subject.

My first post is about seersucker, a classic fabric that has been around for a long time. I think it started with mens suits. Seersucker is the quintessential summer fabric that breathes and literally never goes out of style. There are all kinds of ways to style it so that it doesn't look Ivy League.

I like Bermudas because I think they are chicer than a mid-length short. I wore them with a denim shirt and a python belt. I know what you guys are going to say...python doesn't go with seersucker. Well that way you don't look like a frumpy prep. Then I wore some cute little heeled Mary Janes by Emma Hope that have been in my closet  f o r e v e r. You might also say that python doesn't match these shoes either. No it doesn't which is the beauty of it and gives the look an edge. I have a thing for hats so I threw this straw one on to top it off.
