Friday Flashback!

Volume 5: Statement Tee

Happy day, dear reader!

If you are here in the US, I hope you had a fabulous 4th! If you are elsewhere, I pray your week has been smooth, and trouble free. It’s time for another Friday Flashback post, in which I take a look from this week last year, and restyle it for 2019. It’s a great way to see how your style and/or wardrobe has changed.

Take a peek back to see what you were wearing this time last year? What do you still have? What’s gone? How would you wear it today? Or would you at all? It’s turning into an enlightening exercise!

This week last year…

What’s still in my wardrobe?

I still have the tee! It’s in my summer capsule. Some of the jewels are on my hooks and others in storage for the season. The skinny jeans gave out last year mid-summer and the pewter sandals at the end. They both had a good run, so no regrets. I do have the polka dot tote, but it’s been relegated to pool duty this season.

What’s new?

About 5 extra pounds, so my replacement skinny jeans are too snug to make me happy. Besides that, the weather is hovering around 100 every day this week, so long pants are only for business, AND only when absolutely necessary! (Skirts and dresses are cooler!) I really need a new pair of pewter/silver flat sandals. I ordered a pair that didn’t work out, and feel like I’m styling with one arm tied behind my back!

How to style it in 2019?

It’s too darned hot for long pants, so shorts it will be!

To go with the same color theme, I chose the blue shorts, pulled my silver espadrilles out of storage, and decided to tie one on. The neckerchief, that is! The white watch had more punch than my workaday silver, and I went (yet again) with my summer obsession, the gigantic textured hoops. I would grab my slouchy pink leather tote, or a small grey crossbody bag, depending on the texture of the day… If I felt like adding some flair, a straw hat would be right at home here!

So, I’ll ask those questions again! What you were wearing this time last year? What do you still have? What’s gone? How would you wear it today? Or would you at all? What does that tell you about yourself and your style? Do tell in the comments below! I so love to hear from you…

Stylishly yours,
