There goes a stylish lady out for a late summer/early Fall stroll.
She has her skinny jeans, nice t-shirt, and her sun hat. The long sleeves and long pants protect from mosquitoes, as does the hat. We don't just wear hats for sun protection here in the Holy City....they guard against the mosquitoes and the aggressive and SAVAGE LITTLE "NO-SEE-UMS" as well.
You get caught in a swarm of them things...and you will be wishing you had worn a suit of ARMOUR! LOL
The light shawl/scarf could be to help guard against the sub zero chill from air conditioning in the restaurants, churches, libraries, museums, and shops.
Or maybe she just threw it on as a light and airy fashion statement......what do y'all think??
I actually snapped this photo before Labor Day...do y'all follow the "rules" about no white after Labor Day? I definitely won't wear white shoes or carry a white pocketbook after Labor Day (the old rule says that is okay only if you are playing tennis or you are a bride--LOL).........but I WILL WEAR my white jeans year round.
To me it looks like her hat band ribbon is leopard? If so...I really love that touch. I love leopard.
"No-see-ums rivaled the mosquito for the position of state bird. They were all but invisible ferocious little bugs that would devour you like piranhas. Well, almost. My Daddy used to call them "flying jaws".
