My friend Mel stopped by this afternoon and I’m glad she did. Her look is the epitome of Northwest summer fashion. It reminded me that even at home I must always be on the look for fashion forward faces.
I love the laid back look and feel of Mel’s jean shorts and vintage Led Zepplin T. When asked where she found such a perfect shirt Mel said, “I have no idea where it came from. It just sort of showed up at my house.”
The clothes don’t just make the look, it’s the hair and makeup too. Mel drove over with wet hair and her windows down. The result? Amazingly perfect windblown tresses. No makeup is needed when you’re a) naturally beautiful like Mel and b) tan.
Summertime is not the time for sky high heels or caked on makeup. Embrace your natural beauty. Rock the boat blown hair. Appreciate the glisten of your slightly balmy skin. As Anne Lamott once said, “Joy is the best makeup.” Preach!
