Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you. ~ Walt Whitman
This morning I woke to perfect sunshine, lovely warm air that wasn’t too humid, a dozen peaches, and the anticipation of my little cousin (she’s 12) coming to visit. I made a peach cobbler (gah, the putzing with the peaches!) and frozen yogurt (awesome) and we had burgers for lunch. Then I took my cousin and son to the pool in this brilliant weather and cleaned the kitchen. It was just a lovely day, full of sunshine and the contentedness of small joys.
So I didn’t feel a need to dress up in any manner more than something pretty. I started with this loose dress from AvaGardner Kungler, who is a pro at textures, colors and proportions. Ava always brings elegance to her fashions, even the most casual, and this outfit feels rich even if it’s not “dressy.” I paired it with lace leggings from Tatyana Ultsch, who is also a pro at textures. These leggings will work with asses and mesh bodies but also come as pure system pieces with add-ons, which I prefer. My shoes are darling wedges that Senzati0n Domenitzo is offering in a gacha at the Aloha Fair.
Sawsan Secretspy, who is one of the most prolific skin makers in SL, I swear, is offering this gorgeous skin for the Aloha Fair. In several bright, sunshiny make-ups, it’s sure to add warmth to your look. My hair is one of Queue Marlowe’s newest, loose curls casually pinned up in back with her ever gorgeous textures. And my pretty, delicate hanging earrings are Maxi Gossamer’s new offer for Uber.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night. ~ Steve Martin
