|Long ago I converted my|
grandmother's clip earrings to pierced
My choice for Tuesday's commute form Baltimore County to the Library of Congress was from one of those boxes; a cool pair of lemon-colored shorts by Austin Reed Petites, which I paired with my own ribbed tank by International Concepts (I.N.C.) from Macy's, embellished with ruffles and rhinestones around the neckline. I chose strappy platform heels by City Streets from JCPenney to elongate my legs and a skinny leather belt from The Limited to give my ensemble a bit more polish.
For jewelry, I plucked a vintage crystal beaded necklace, earrings and bracelet from my jewelry box that once belonged to my maternal grandmother. I grabbed a fun white multi-zippered handbag from Claire's to complete the look.
A steamy day, yes. But I was cool as lemonade in my tailored pale yellow shorts. Thanks, Joyce!
