It’s official, my favorite time of the year is over. If you’ve been reading the last few posts, you’ve probably heard me lament about the weather change for weeks now. You’ve also probably heard me sing praises of the glorious East Coast summer, well this is going to be my last summer outfit post in an outfit that I’ve worn several times over the past few months.
You know, by now that my most favorite activity over summer along with people watching, outdoor yoga, drinking beer (duh!) was going to instameets. Here it is one of the best ways to meet new people!
These pictures are almost a month old, from a meet called Back to School. The organizers tied up with a teacher from a public school in Philly. Most of the students come from poor families and do not have basic necessities like pencils, work books & school bags, so they decided to combine a photo walk with a donation drive for these kids. It was heartwarming to see several people turn up and everyone contributed/donated to the cause.
In India, many of us have been involved in giving back to society and I was happy that I could do something for the kids in my new home too.
Anyway now coming to the outfit, I’ve been looking to add some fringe & tassels to my wardrobe since last Christmas. I had it on my Christmas gift list (you can read that post here), alas, Santa didn’t come to visit! 😀
So sometime in April while I shopped for spring, I found this very affordable floral & fringed cover up at Nordstrom Rack. It’s a breezy colorful layer over a tank and jeans or shorts, and of course dresses! Too bad that I have to pack it up for the next 6 months, but I continue my search for a tasseled jacket, bag and pair of shoes!
Have you been wearing tassels in summer or is it something you reserve for Fall?
