They are heavy enough for good coverage yet light enough for summer temperatures and they are a
good alternative to shorts if you don't wear them or if you want something just a little dressier.
I paired them with this geometrical print blouse that I bought at Burlington Coat Factory last winter, navy espadrille wedges from Kohls and a cute lace bottom tank that I found at Walmart. I pulled the navy upward with a pretty bubble necklace and added basic silver jewelry.
There isn't much I don't wear a tank under these days and when I saw this lace edged one at my local Walmart for just over $5.00 I picked one up in white and one in black. Being as short as I am, most tank tops hang below my outer top and I love that what shows is the pretty lace detail. I have seen them elsewhere for significantly more money so I was thrilled to pick a couple up at such a steal.
I can't believe there is only one more day left in this fashion series. It has been good to hear and see that so many of you enjoy fashion at any age. There is still so much I'd like to share on the subject so who knows I may just keep on going...
And now for our encouraging word, I saw a video on facebook about a young college student who decided he would help the elderly and disabled by mowing their lawns free of charge. It was merely an act of kindness for no other reason than because it was the right thing to do and yet it made such a huge impact on the lives of others.
My question and encouragement to you (and me) is what small act of kindness can we do that might impact someone else. It can be as easy as a smile and a kind word or perhaps paying a utility bill for a struggling single mother. Helping others doesn't have to be complicated. Sometimes it just takes seeing a need and filling it because it's the right thing to do.
Who knows what that one little gesture could mean to someone in need? Just a thought...
Be sure to catch up on all the past summer fashion series.
