W.I.W. When I don't want to wear anything......

Hey Family today we had a family get together to remember Memorial Day and to eat BBQ.

As a family we observed a moment of silence at 3:00 to remember my all those whom made the ultimate sacrifice.

I call this fit:

"I don't want no clothes to touch my body today fit."

We roasted I mean sat out in under the sun today. We enjoyed family and friends and ate really well. I'm glad I put on my SPF 5,000. I think I have turned 2 shades darker sitting outside. Hahahaha lolol

Some fits I wear you may like and you may not like and you know what that is okay. I think that is what makes the world go round. My friend Meosha does not like denim skirts but, she is still my friend.

Today was also a day to make up with family. I hurt the feelings of my best friend/cousin Yolanda a while back so it was beyond time to make up. Sometimes things are easy and we've known each other our whole lives. Sometimes you take your family for granted. But at the end of the day. You forgive make up and move forward.

I would also like to introduce you all to my wonderful Photographer Brianne otherwise known as Bree. My niece whom I love so much. My family is a big part of my life so you'll be seeing them occasionally.

Now my fit is straight from the thrift. Cotton overalls, silk poncho, and Bag bracelets from Combat to Chic.

My overalls are 2 sizes to big for me but I love how they look on me.

Everything else thrifted from various places.

    I haven't revisited overalls since I wore them in the 90s, but I totally understand wanting to wear something comfy in that heat. Usually I do a sundress then. Looks like you had a good Memorial Day. You are very creative with your thrifting. I don't have as good an eye for it.

    I love reading your posts.  Every word draws me in and makes me want to visit Chicago.  Your outfit is fabulous.  It is perfect for the day.  The moment of silence was important too.

    Ledonna, your posts always make me smile and feed my heart. I love your description of feeling like you don't want clothes to touch your body. That's how I feel most of the summer with the high heat and stick humidity or burning winds. Bracelets are a great way to add interest to an outfit. I need to remember that. I also like silk as a fabric that does not feel like it is touching you. Overalls are a great idea. They are not fitted at the waist. You look gorgeous in your happy outfit.

    Simply exuberant! Getting ready to eat bbq ribs and potato salad here now...

    I much prefer this fit of overalls to a tight fit! You look very cool in all senses.

    Best accessoried ever . And amen to "no clothes touching my body , thank you" , which is why I'm in my pyjamas at 8 every evening :) Or 7 if I can get away with it .

  • jacquez replied 1 year ago

    Ledonna, I love the fit of those overalls! Very breezy and summery-looking. 

  • Cococat replied 1 year ago

    Fab outfit for not wanting to wear anything! :)

  • Ledonna N. replied 1 year ago

    Delurked I just started to get into overalls again. My artist friend reimagined some for me and I cannot wait to wear them. Sundresses are good I have a few it did not want to wear them to sit and eat with lol!

    Sterling it is just a moment but it reminds us all. Despite what the news says Chicago is a good place.

    Joy, Angie and the YLF family are the ones who taught me about natural fabrics that breath. I only knew of cotton. It make a world of difference. I'm glad you enjoy my musings.

    Shevia not to worry we love a good comfortable shoe.

    Reachy that is all that I had and whew was it good! I hope you enjoyed your day.

    Alaskagirl thank you we must be cool. Personal summers visit me often the older I get.

    Lisap great minds think alike. I think I beat you to it. Lol 6:00pm was the latest episode for me. Cotton shifts only.

    Jacquesoh so easy breezy lol

    Cocoa at yes. I need to get summer ready.

    Love the look. I prefer looser overalls, and yours look perfect for a hot day. The bag is great and fun, I have a similar one I need to find.
    Looks like you had a blast!

  • Bijou replied 1 year ago

    This is the perfect way to wear overalls, your style always looks so fresh and fun. You have a very stylish family, so nice to see them on the other side of the camera too.

  • Maneera replied 1 year ago

    You look great, Donna! So so fab!

    What can be better than enjoying a great meal with family & loved one. I'm glad you had a lovely day.....it shows! #9 is a wonderful click!

  • Summer replied 1 year ago

    I can just imagine how light and breezy those overalls feel on a hot day.  You look wonderful as ever, Ledonna, and I love the colourful bag.

    Thanks for introducing some of your lovely family to us.

    The result is very cute - cap is the perfect final touch bringing it all together. Belt is genius. 

  • Tanya replied 1 year ago

    Another super cool Ledonna look.  Love the accessories, they totally make it work and the hat really flatters you.

  • Ledonna N. replied 1 year ago

    Kirshnidoux, Tanya, Summer, Maneera, Bijou, chirico

    Thank you all for taking the time to comment.  That hat is truly a blast from the fashion past.  I love it.

    The bottle cap seat blet was a op shop find at $1

    As we go through the years our family is getting smaller.  We want to  try and get together as much as possible.  You all have a great day.

  • Sara L. replied 1 year ago

    The drapey overalls look good on you.  I was expecting stiff denim overalls when I read your post before looking at the photos.  The hat is cute and also smart for keeping the sun off your face. 

  • Ledonna N. replied 1 year ago

    I have a pr of Denim I 'll be rocking all weekend Sara L but they are presently roomy The weather here in the Chi is so unpredictable.  I just want to be comfy and unique.  lol Thanks for commenting.

  • Beth Ann replied 1 year ago

    Great memorial day tradition!  Love the overalls, and the shoes and hat! I've not seen overalls with this silhouette for a long time, and I like the ease and flow of the look.  

    I'm lousy at dressing for the heat --- I'll be watching your Summer posts for ideas!

  • Debbie replied 1 year ago

    I love this! Perfect in the heat outfit. I absolutely love your bag. It is beautiful. I need to find a cute hat or cap to keep the sun off my face!

    Ladonna-I appreciate your service to this country and the moment of silence more than you know. My Dad was in the Air Force for thirty years

  • Ledonna N. replied 1 year ago

    Beth Ann thank you but I'm still learning how to dress for summer. I'm team laying maximum and its challenging for me. ,I can say this is the happiest I've been ever with my summer wadrobe.

    Debbie that bag was a find at the op shop cheap,cheap but perfect condition.,I will be wearing her for some time to come.

    30 years in the AF wow mad respect. We have had so much family in the service we could do no less but the moment of silence.
