There almost was not a Visible Monday post for today. In fact, I had a post in mind that I was going to entitle “Zero Visibility” and write about my crazy week and share a vintage find with you all. Instead I came up this lame-brain idea. Before I share, please understand:
1. There has been a crash and burn since the wedding.
2. I started a new job last Monday (yes, for those having trouble with the math, TWO days after the wedding…more on that later).
3. I have had zero interest in taking photos de moi because of reasons 1 & 2.
Today has been a very lazy day. Master Bliss, Rockefeller and I took a walk in the 88*F heat… and that would be all I have accomplished today. When we returned home, I showered and decided to do two more worthwhile things:
1. Run an experiment on my hair.
2. Sit on the front porch and read.
After the shower I put on a casual pair of white capris and my navy blue striped tee. I pulled my wet hair back in a ponytail (experimenting to see how smooth it dries like this to avoid hot irons) and put on some lip gloss. Master Bliss came in the bathroom and asked, “Where are you going?” I looked at him blankly. Hmmm…when do I ever go out with wet hair and no make-up (unless exercising)? I replied, “To the front porch. I just didn’t want to look like a hillbilly sitting out there.” He said, “Oh…as if.” Little does he know I am one chin hair away from going out there in my pjs some day. In the meantime, here is my take on how NOT to look like a hillbilly while front porch sitting:
Ooops! There’s that dirty mirror again. Sorry. No make-up on? No problem. Sunglasses hide all. And a little lip-gloss adds some color.
Close-up mirror shots are not recommended, however. Back it up. But not before I zoom in on another porch sitting accessory….amber stud earrings–bien sur!
I still can’t believe I almost didn’t buy these in the Dominican Republic. I love them.
If you have a front porch, I invite you to sit a spell on it while you sip your
Long Island iced tea (please never a Budweiser) and read a great book. I am off to start my very first Agatha Christie novel ever. Please go visit Not Dead Yet Style for other great, and far more inspiring, outfits.
