Kissed By the Sun

Back to sunshine and warm weather. I spent the day outside gardening—pulling up weeds (how is that they are the first to bloom), thinning my Siberian irises and nepeta and bee balm, and discovering where the chipmunks have made their new home. When I got in, I found I had a glowy sunburn on my nose and cheeks.

So it was with great delight that I donned a white sundress to show off my new tan. (A tan that is, in SL, not detrimental to my health, thank you.) This dress from Marea Kirax is light and airy with a lovely crocheted bodice, reminding me of sitting out on the back porch, enjoying a cool drink and savoring my hard work in the garden.

And my skin? Well Monicuzza Babenco is truly the author of this whole story. Her summer skin is an evocative reminder of a day well spent in the sun. Perhaps it’s a day spent on a boat, sailing over cool waters. Or a day spent on the slopes, skiing. For me, it’s a day doing honest work and making my world a prettier place.

Big pretty earrings from Anemysk Karu dress up the look, bringing attention to the glow in my face and dangling almost down to my berry brown shoulders.
