OOTD: Classic - Trendy - Classic - Trendy

This is for Sal's challenge! 

Nothing much has changed here in Seattle, and we are 5 months into new normals. COVID-19 restrictions have eased a little but really, not much.

I continue to dress my usual dressy casual way, wearing my pretty clothes with easy air-dry hair, sneakers, crossbody, and some make-up. I walk Sam several times a day in the city (we live in a loft in the city), run errands, cook, clean, organize, and work from home. I do my PT and yoga early in the morning in gear, and then get dressed for the day. I am always comfortable and can do what needs to be done in what I wear. 

I seldom wear sleeveless dresses because it has to be at least 30C/86F for me to not feel cold - no a/c either, please. And I don't like the feeling of the hot sun belting down on my bare skin, so I need to find shade too. We've been having some great Summer weather so I'm wearing my new sleeveless dress for the second time. I had it altered a size down to fit perfectly. Party at the back! Need a jacket to walk Sam in the morning because it's always cooler by the water. 

LOVE this dress - LOTS of fun swoosh! - that will not date unless we all wear Star Trek uniforms in deep space.....

Although midis are trendy, it's a classic dress worn with modern retro pearls and a classic Furla. It's trendy with my hair, specs, Apple watch, denim jacket and sneakers. My attitude about wearing this dress as regular casual wear is modern too. I get on with it, and do what needs to be done in a day. Polished but not precious is the way I lead my life! 

And a glimpse of another Classic - Trendy - Classic - Trendy  look I wore to a very quiet picnic with my boys last week. Classic linen shirt tucked into trendy white wide crops. Also wore it with the same white Furla and light blue sneakers. Added polka dot tote for picnic stash.

I AM a Trendy Classic! Thanks for looking.
