California Dreamin' With Match Made In Seven
Hey friends! It's time for another Match Made In Seven style challenge and this month's theme has been the biggest challenge so far for me! If you are new to the blog, here is what our group is all about.
We are an international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. The theme of this month is chosen by Darlene and is: California Dreamin' ! Also, take a look at the other bloggers and how they have interpreted the theme this month. (See list at end of post).
You wouldn't think that this month's theme would be such a challenge, but it was for me. I have only been to California one time, many many years ago. I certainly know the famous lyrics to the song written by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips of the group The Mama's and The Papa's in the 1960's. But, I just wasn't quite certain where to go with this theme. Whenever I think of California I tend to picture movie stars, warm weather and, unfortunately here lately, earthquakes! So, I delved back into the memories of our trip there 20 some years ago and I remember staying in Cambria and the beautiful Pacific Ocean and the brilliant sunshine. So, I decided to go with clothing that reminded me of the sun.
This yellow tunic type top reminds me of sunshine! It is loose and flowy and oh so comfortable for the hottest days of summer. Paired with white pants and sandals I can pretend that I am in California soaking up the sun!
