Just a Little Closer

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I have a few go-to summer outfits...this is definitely the other one (out of the four I have).  A loose top & linen shorts is totally easy for a hot summer day when the last thing you want are pit-stains! (I mean, that's never happened to me, what are you talking about, that's so gross.) Actually, I have worse BO than Rye Bread does, it's really embarrassing.

This time I decided to SPICE THANGS UP, but just ever so subtly as I didn't want to scare the chirren or have service turned away.  I recently purchased pasties from Patches of Freedom & realized that you don't need a low-cut shirt or a backless dress as a reason to wear these - they can be a slight hint of sexiness without being overtly in-yo-face.  It gave me a little boost knowing this secret as I thought, "Teehee, I know something you don't know."  Although if you looked hard enough, you were in on my secret too.

 I was recently asked where my necklaces were from & while I like to accessories, I have 2 necklaces that stay on permanently.  The first necklace is from Tiffany of a single clear teardrop hanging from a silver chain (similar one here).  That was given to me by Rye Bread on our first Christmas together - funny side story, he ordered it online & when I opened, I said "Wow, this is beautiful!" and his reply was "Oh I thought it was going to be bigger..." in disappointment. (TWSS)  The second necklace was recently given to me by my really good friend, Rhona; after she heard of Ezio's passing, she bought this necklace as a memento of affection & remembrance.  Both mean so much to me that unless I'm getting a massage, they stay on (shower, gym & all).
