Seems ages since I did a 'fashion' post.
No, didn't do much shopping at all whilst in Sicily - other than a
useful lemon squeezer - oh my, the Sicilian lemons are the world's best -
and definitely no clothes or shoes this time, bags were already overstuffed
for the cruise, and this time orders were, "we are not buying another suitcase to
get things home."
However I still enjoyed looking, and window shopping, and as you probably
know, I love taking photos of shop windows. Just something really interesting
about reflections. . . . . . .and the mannequins are amazing these days.
Being in Italy and NOT buying shoes was hard! While in Siracusa, I really was
interested in these handmade sandals in gorgeous black and silver leather,
170.00 euros was just a bit much for sandals! I passed them up - and I kick
myself daily on these 98F melting days and wish I had them - so different from
anything I've seen around here.
But I do have these pants! Not from Italy, from Anthropologie, and they
are my best summertime buy this year! I could live in these pants, and almost do,
as they are so comfortable, a bit baggy, lightweight and cool, and despite wrinkling
as linen does, having the fine stripe seems to mask creases really well. I throw
them in the washer and dryer and put them back on. They fall just above the ankle
or can be rolled twice to make them cropped at a good length (I'm quite tall - 5'8"),
and can be dressed up or down with different tops and accessories.
If you bump into me any day this summer don't be surprised if I'm
wearing these pants!
Here I'm in the car heading west - yes, I even did that recent road trip to the
North Carolina mountains wearing these comfortable pants.
Did you find something to wear this summer which you are really enjoying?
