Sorry for all the posts relating to our upcoming trip & everything else.

These are a couple things that caught my eye as I sorted my summer clothes last night. I seem to be thinking of the sea! But I could use help here.

What do we think of exposed zippers these days, gold or sour citrus?

Also, I’d need to find more exciting outfits for any of these blue pieces. I used to have a T-shirt the lighter blue shade in the palm skirt, and have enough other things (paisley cord skirt, paisley shirt) with that color in it that I’d wear another. Used to have a green T in a shade that probably would’ve worked too. But I’d like to do, you know, something more interesting than a 1:1 replacement for things that wore out. A symphony of blues, with a tank & the belt bag, sounded better than it looks. Maybe I need a turquoise vest.

As much as I like the silk tank, I clearly need higher-waisted bottoms to wear with it. I’m not feeling the linen tank with the 501s either—it seems to highlight my little potbelly by framing it so perfectly.

I’m tempted to try this gorgeous tweed top from Angie’s recent post with the blue skirt or the jeans, but that’s probably because I want an excuse to get it anyway.

What shapes and strategies would work with these blue tops and skirts? All ideas, suggestions, and jokes will be appreciated.
