Independence Day Weekend Look

What I’m Wearing
1970’s Tan Straw Sun Hat
1970’s Blue Linen Skirt
1950’s White Woven Hard Purse
Thrifted Elephant Tee
Modern White Perforated Heels

Summer in Virginia means hot weather and bright sun. I have fair skin and burn easily, so I like to be covered up from the rays. My wardrobe consists of lightweight fabrics, and large hats to keep the sun off my face. As much as I tried to be patriotic for the 4th of July weekend, I don’t own a lot of red, so blue will have to do.

James River Pipeline Walk

 

What I’m Wearing:
1910’s Edwardian Blouse
1950’s Black Sun Hat
Modern Black Shorts
Modern Bathing Suit Top
Modern Army Boots

The Richmond Canal Walk and James River Pipeline are located right in the heart of downtown Richmond, VA. Belle Isle and Brown’s Island offer beautiful recreation space and shore banks, perfect for cooling off in the hot summer. The river water was quite high in these photos, but usually there is more beach and exposed rocks to lay on. The river and canal walks make for a fun afternoon.

1970’s Wide Leg Trousers

What I’m Wearing:
1970’s Wide Leg Red Pants
1950’s Gray and Trimmed Zip Up Cardigan
Modern Leather Platforms
Topshop Nude Ribbed Tank

I’m so happy that wide legged pants are on trend, right now. These 70’s red pants belonged to my mother, and now they are mine! I adore any “high-waisted” or natural-waist anything. The low rise fad of my younger years was terribly unflattering and uncomfortable. This short, knit zip-up from the 50’s was sourced locally in Richmond, Virginia.
