HA! Did you think I hit one? Nope. I found one to use as a backdrop for my Visible Monday photo shoot. Something different, ya’ know?
I am learning a lot from participating in Visible Monday. Firstly, I am so inspired by the other ladies who post their pictures every week, sharing their creative endeavors in fashion. I have seen wonderful interpretations of ensembles that I seriously never would have thought of to try. By extension, I think it is helping me to be more daring… or at least a little less conservative with my clothing. Secondly, it is challenging me to work with the clothes I have. This season (Spring/Summer), I have bought only three things (only talking clothing here, people, not accessories– in case anyone is keeping count of those items by chance–I am no saint) to add to my wardrobe…two dresses and a shirt (also not including 3 very casual shirts for work). This is good! because I have worked hard at keeping a minimal/capsule type wardrobe and I don’t want to veer from this no matter how inspired I get by other fashionistas. So, the following ensemble(s) consists of pieces I have had for a few years, however I felt I could add pizzazz with newer or different accessories:
(skirt, sweater–jjill; top–macys; scarf–hermes; shoes–bass; purse–vintage; horn bracelet and mother-of-pearl scarf ring–maitai collection)
I was inspired to dress in these colors because I knew later in the day we would be on our friends’ boat for dinner. I simply took a pair of white cropped pants (QVC) and another pair of shoes for relaxing on the decks. I acclimated well to my marina environment. This is me slyly devising a plan to take over the boat. But it is hard to plan a mutiny without someone getting hurt…or getting authorities involved:
But I WANT to sleep here:
Wake up to this:
and eat on this deck:
Every day! And I think Master Bliss would make a spiffy captain (just imagine him with a captain’s hat on):
IF he could pry my butt off of this “Queen of Everything” chair/throne:
I have always wanted control and I could so have it here:
I’m really good at pushing buttons.
I mean, come on! Don’t we look like boat people? Don’t you think marina life makes us look
younger happier? I think so. Look! We are glowing. Oh, OK. The sun was setting but still!
Our friends said the boat may be for sale in the future. It got me thinking. I did some research until I found this advertisement for a boat very similar to theirs just a little smaller. We would definitely need to sell the house. And then I would have to change my blog’s name to “swimming my way from bliss”. Maybe more on those thoughts later.
