nautical escape

wearing this look i’d like to find myself at a beautiful resort in the hamptons or palm beach.  this look is lightweight, surprisingly comfortable and perfectly nautical for a seaside venture.  it also creates the perfect silhouette.  peplum tops are the ultimate waist defining top.  i love its simplicity. with its barely-there abstract floral design, it contrasts these leg lengthening, bright pants nicely.  with a wide brimmed hat, having a similar nautical feel, a cocktail by the sea would be quite fitting!

one of the best discoveries i’ve made since moving, is that most cities of relatively large size have an avid arts scene. at the oklahoma city museum of art, thursdays in the summer mean “cocktails on the skyline.”  one can enjoy museum exhibits, a drink {or two}, vast views from the 5th floor patio, and marvelous music…all at an affordable price. with dale chihuly masterpieces (as seen in the photos above), it’s surely a treat, whether it’s your first visit or your 45th:)  for this cool may evening, i wore a tulip skirt, paired with a soft, subdued see-through top.  the wedges completed my look, giving it the sophistication “a night at the museum” requires. i thought the wedges paired quite nicely with the chihuly masterpiece pictured in the museum lobby.  don’t you?
