This is gonna be quick.  It’s hot, I’m busy, and you probably have better things to do!  So, here’s the rundown.

full bracelets 2

The rayon top from Goodwill is layered over a loose tank dress from H&M.  The flip flops are ancient, the bracelets have been collected over the past 35 years, the embroidered glasses case is from Cost Plus Market, and the wooden earrings were thrifted.

I found the hat at Forever 21 on a rare visit to the mall (that’s also when I got the dress from H&M).  Since hats my size are hard to come by, it came home with me.  The snake ring was thrifted, the white ring bartered for, and the green ring was a steal in Portland.

So there you have it.  I’ll be stopping by Style Crone’s Hat Attack and would love to see you there.  Just throw on a few accessories and a hat.

P.S.  If you click on the pictures you’ll be able to see more details.  XXOO

    The green in your layered top and your hat frame your face to perfection. And your jewelry is always superb! Thank for taking the time to share your beauty and your headwear with Hat Attack. xo

    Oh Jean, there you are!! Looking smashing as always. Good to see you.
    You are a master of accessories. I’m paying more attention to them, but I think one of the things that makes yours so special, in many cases, is the back story that accompanies each piece, the history.
    That hat would be great for punting down at canal.

      Oooh, I love that image. So many lovely, bucolic pictures come to mind. I can see one of your drawings capturing the moment, too. xoxo

    Hi Jean! I’m finding that in the summer, my accessories are the most interesting part of my outfit because everything else tends to be grey or black and loose and simple….

    The hat looks great on you! Be careful, if it is from Forever 21, it will most likely self-destruct on the last day of summer as all their merchandise is designed to last for one season 😉

    • Jean on August 6, 2015 at 9:56 pm

      Yes, loose and simple. Accessories are all we have!! Yeah, those hats are definitely not Forever!!

    You look fantastic as always. I will never be stylish but I still love admiring it in talented women such as yourself. xoxo

    • Jean on August 6, 2015 at 9:59 pm

      Shawna, I appreciate you!! Style is highly overrated. :-) I’d go for substance any day. Style is subservient to substance anyway. You follow me? Claim it and it’s your’s. XXXOOO!!!

    Love that armful of bangles, we’re almost twins! Gorgeous green top, perfect for a hot day. Send some of that heat over here, I’ve a bucketful of washing, rain and grey skies. xxx

    • Jean on August 6, 2015 at 10:01 pm

      Yeah, I’m almost a month behind in responding. Did you get some of the heat? I swear I was sending it as hard as I could. Love you.

    Lovely to see you, Jean, and looking so beautiful and elegant. Love the flashes of green, and yes, throw on a hat and some jewellery, they always make an outfit sing! xxx

    • Jean on August 6, 2015 at 10:02 pm

      YOU make me sing!! I can’t wait ’till I can make the blogging rounds properly. xo

      Besos to you too!! I’m always so happy to see your colorful ensembles. Thank you for hanging out with me. Hope all’s well in your world!!

    Jean! Thank you for making my day SO much better than it was 15 minutes ago. And thank you for using the word “dross”. I, too, have always believed in an inverse relationship between the amount of money one has and one’s taste in clothes. You must be poor.

  11. Connie Pappalardo on August 1, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    Honey, I’ve been through what you’re going! And those goddam 20 lbs are still hanging around. They look a helluva a lot more gorgeous on you. Grazie mille for visiting, and I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

    Love the pops of green. Beautiful color on you ?? The hat is perfect and love the black basic dress that you can mix with everything. Always so nice to “see” you. Reminds me of how much I miss you! Xoxo

    • Feda on August 6, 2015 at 9:00 pm

      Those ?? Are supposed to be !! Lol
