Two Days Left

You knew this would happen.  Right!  I must also mention and highlight my new summer read.....

Lorena, like most of the other women in the ballroom, scrutinized Astrid from head to toe as she walked to her table wearing what appeared to be a crisp men's button-down shirt tucked into exquisitely cut navy-and-white gingham cigarette trousers.   "It's true, Astrid actually looks younger and younger every time I see her....  "It's how she puts it all together. The other girls her age are dressed up like Christmas trees but just look at Astrid...hair in a sleek ponytail, ballet flats, not a drop of jewelry except the cross...is it turquoise? And that outfit!  She looks like Audrey Hepburn on the way to a screen test" - Excerpt from Rich Peoples Problems  - Kevin Kwan

I.  Bootie:  Aquatalia - 4 1/2 Stars by 44 Reviewers - Bought both black and taupe hues.  Made in Italy.  These have pointed toes and a low heel plus waterproof suede which equals supreme quality and comfort.  Last year, I snapped up a pair of  Aquatalia ankle boots that have a rounder toe and wore them non-stop.   Fit is true to size.  Can't wait to wear with a skinny pair of jeans.

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines.
