Hello, lovely fashion friends. A few of you have sent really sweet messages, and I know I have not responded to everyone. I am on new meds and feeling things out. Not as sad-sad. But still very in my head and reclusive feeling. I hope I don't lose touch with the group here, though. I have been reading and keeping up with posts and lurking. :) Anyway, just letting you know I am still alive and stuff. Xoxo

Wanted to be a little more dressy yet wanted to avoid the warmth of slacks. Enter some $1 culottes. With the linen tank under the thin crop top, this was fairly easy-breezy and comfortable.
As I said in my other thread, it was a really draining day, but it's better to have a draining day in a put-together outfit.
Some may prefer culottes that are baggier in the hip and seat, and I did pick up a pair of denim ones, but I am not reaching for them. DH says those loose ones remind him of frumpy people in ill-fitting crop pants. Probably would be better in a dressy fabric if I want to go super loose.
Drat, I did not get a picture of this shirt's cut out back! It's so light weight and the cut out makes it edgy enough to feel right with my bottoms.
It has been such a stressful and draining couple of days, but at least I could stay cool.
What do you think of the filters on the photos lately? I mostly play with them on my phone out of boredom, but I can nix them if you find them annoying or too Instagram-y.
I wore my "fish print" "top" again, even though it feels like I just wore it.
This time, I wanted to go a little tougher - barracuda vs. mackerel. ;) Punk-ish zip skinnies on bottom, black sandals, and even more zippers on the bag. I did not break the mold with this one, but these sheer tops of mine sure do come in handy on our hot summer days!

Ugggggh, long movie line! But that gives me some time to post, anyway.
I really wanted to wear my rose gold leather jacket today, but the weather was so hot and humid it withered that idea away. So I dug out this old duster instead - it is more of a taupe but it does have a slight rosy undertone. I had forgotten how fun this duster is to swoosh around in. Charcoal jeans and tee to edge it up a little. Some of you won't like the bright bag with this, but I get a kick out of the one spot of saturation floating in the dust. Desert oasis!
And now... Guardians of the Galaxy! Wooot!
