Hat – Ruche; Skirt as dress – on the beach in Barcelona; Belt – F21; Shoes – Zellers.

Here’s why I love fashion:  You can be endlessly creative with it.  You can nip, tuck, pin, twist, tie, belt, and loop to you hearts content and create an ever varying assortment of outfits.  And one of my fave things is the miraculous ability of maxi skirts to become dresses just by nipping a belt around your waist.

And though you’re probably tired of seeing my summer staples – large sunglasses and a wide brim hat – I’m loving them.  Sun protection hound that I am, I wear both these things and SPF 45 on my face.  What can I say?  I rock the pasty white look.

True Story:
Drake the Dog lying asleep on the couch.  Baby comes over and I expect her to smack him or poke him, but what does she do instead?  She leans in real close and puts her little nose right up against his and just stares at him. 
For a really long time.   
Then she pokes him. 
Still, it’s an improvement.
