My Dressing Room Diaries is a fun series where I visit different stores, try on many things and share with you why or why not they work for me. I do have a budget, so seldom buy the clothes. My visit to Ann Taylor 2 weeks ago was different. When I fell for this blouse and jeans… I bought them, which is out of character for me because I seldom wear pattern and don’t “do” distressed.
Saturday night we went into town for the Loreto Art Walk and Music Festival. Just off the town square, a little street was lined with stalls of local jewelry, pottery, weavings, and paintings.
After a day under my sunhat, my hair was trashed so I used the dreaded banana clip to keep my hair neat.
I chose comfy, walking sandals and added big earrings that are featherlight and fun. The soft pink of the earrings is picked up in the tropical pattern on my blouse. I love these trumpet sleeves. They feel feminine and are a nice contrast to the slightly frayed bottom edge of the jeans.
I didn’t have room to pack my pink straw tote bag so brought this foldable red one, which doesn’t match…oh well!
This lady spoke much better English than I did Spanish.
The stalls were filled with the most interesting art.
Notice the man behind me, on the right. He’s walking around giving out samples of Margaritas:)
I half-tucked the blouse into my jeans to shorten it, narrow the bottom and give it a bit more shape. Hanging loose, it would require a lighter weight pant. These jeans are meant to be cropped but are full length on me. The petite jeans had a lower rise which I didn’t like the feel of.
Before dinner at a local restaurant, I took a peek into some local shops at their silver earrings and bracelets. Mexico is famous for its sterling silver and there is a lot admire.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
