A birthday tube skirt outfit

Inspired by Angie’s blog post, I am wearing a tube skirt in white with black dots around the circles, an EF silk chamuse grey top and Naturalizer pewter metallic loafer/mules and little silver crossbody bag to celebrate turning 74. The top will adjust so that the little box I need to wear will not show as much, I hope, but don’t really care. I wish the skirt were a little longer. Is it ok for summer wear? I can wear the skirt in colder weather with boots and a black or a white sweater. Any other styling suggestions? Sorry about the long quarantine hair.

    Thank you all for your comments and boost of confidence. These days of quarantin I feel old and vulnerable.

    Happy Birthday!And what a great look,comfy but smart.lm so sorry that quarantine is weighing heavy.I hope that you manage to forget it for a few hours and enjoy your birthday

  • Joy replied 2 months ago

    Thank you, Jane and Cardiff girl. As JAileen said...just when you thought things could not get worse...we still have bag air quality from huge out of control forest fires so we could not go outdoors, along comes cases of West Nile virus and the first people I know coming down with the corona virus where my parents used to live in Iowa. One is in the hospital on a ventilator with hardly any kidney function. These are middle aged active farmers that were in good health. They had been very careful and mostly around close family.
