So, I got my newest Robert Clergerie sandals on Friday, and to be honest, I was toying with sending them back. I love them, and they’re ridiculously comfortable, but, I wondered if I could justify adding them to my collection. And then I put them on with my Goldsign jeans and black James Perse t-shirt to think about wearing to lunch with Leo and he looked at me, and said “I like those shoes, you look nice” Doesn’t sound like much to you, probably, but believe me, to get my husband to say anything besides “it’s fine,” or mutter under his breath about my “activist” shoes, to anything I’m wearing is stunning. He even told me why he likes the sandals: because they’re not huge or clunky. Which they decidedly are not.
So, I’m ABSOLUTELY keeping them now! Anyway, like I said, they’re really comfortable, if very flat, and add a little interest to whatever it is I’m wearing; they’re sort of my “fancy” sandals LOL. AND I love them with this dress. This outfit actually is what I’ve decided to wear on Friday night of my step-son’s bar mitvah weekend the end of this month, to synagogue and then out to the first of his “parties” at Seasons52. The only thing is that I need to cover my arms during the service, so I think I’ll bring along my light, open Demy Lee sweater (very old) to throw on top. I just hate to do that with this dress though, because it detracts from the overall look. I can remove the sweater for dinner, though, unless I’m cold. Ugh.
I thought of a “wrap,” but then, I don’t want to blend in too much with his grandparents 😉
So, one outfit down, a few more to go. Actually, I’m going to wear my long black Acne Studios dress with my James Perse soft twill blazer on Saturday morning to his actual bar mitzvah service. I still need to figure out my outfit for Saturday night’s party at the country club and then brunch Sunday at his grandparents’ house. Apparently there IS a dress-code for both of those events. I mean…
Finally, if you saw my instagram yesterday I posted the weather for this week, which is hot, hot and even more hot. I’m talking 105-106 degrees. So I’m not sure I’m going to actually wear “clothing” or post “outfits” – but we’ll see. Most of the time, I can avoid being outside much if I’m actually “dressed” in something other than my dog-walking clothes, but even so, I will sometimes have to take three showers when it’s this hot, and it wears you down (and no, there is NO deodorant that “works” in this heat). You have to rest from just being outside for 15 minutes. But. At least it’s a dry heat! No, that’s really a thing. Here, we walk outside when it’s 105 and feel like our skin is going to burn off, or we might spontaneously combust, but at least I can breathe better than in the 90 degree heat and 98% humidity that is central Florida at my dad’s house. I don’t feel like I’m going to melt into a puddle here.
Sometimes I wonder which is worse. Other times, I just try to wear as little as possible and stay in air conditioning.
Hope you have a great week planned!!!
