So a week ago one of my regular customers had a stroke, she lost the ability to speak, she passed away 2 days later on Friday of rodeo weekend. She was 94, her name was Peggy and she drank more White Zinfindel than I've seen anyone do. She ordered a glass everytime she came in. She was big into social media, loved to golf and was still very active in the community. Today was her funeral. It was a great funeral full of people who loved her and music she loved. I have a weird relationship with funerals. I really don't agree with mourning those who have gone before us. I was always taught that we should celebrate their lives.
I live in an agricultural community who are quite frugal and wouldn't own an outfit they could only wear a couple times a year to a funeral so you see all kinds of things at funerals around here. Today I decided I should wear something Peggy would approve of and that would be comfortable, yet still appropriate, in the 94 degree heat.
I chose some awesome black and dark cornflower blue leggings from Target along with an awesome white embroidered button down top that has a knit back. The knit back is essential when you are well endowed up top, it keeps things stretchy, but still looks polished. I also wore my favorite black flats from Nuture, they are comfy and they stand up to the rugged terrain around here. To round out my outfit, I wore some awesome Mother of Pearl wrapped earrings and a necklace made from old broaches that one of my other regulars gave me. And as usual I topped it off with my signature bright red lipstick.
