Visible Future Mother/Daughter-in-law . . .



I was going to introduce this post by apologizing for interrupting my series of summer images. But then I realized that just because it's not an outdoor photo, that doesn't mean it can't indicate some of summer's pleasures.

The pleasure of a perfectly pleasing, pastel-printed, simple silk cotton dress, lightest weight lining, also silk. an easy dream to wear. And bare legs . . . that's summer too, no? The pale blue Fluevogs I wore as Mother-of-the-Bride last summer. (The dress is a recent summer-sale purchase from Bernstein & Gold in Victoria -- it's by Designers Remix, Charlotte Eskildsen. I'm loving it!)

Now I'm getting ready to be Mother of the Groom, and as part of the preparations, I took a long  sunny drive on the weekend to shower my future daughter-in-law with the love she deserves, meeting her lovely mom, aunt, and many of her friends. Much summer silliness ensued in a gorgeous hotel hospitality suite at the Victoria Regent, stunning views as backdrop.


Since I had to get back home early the next morning, I didn't go out on the town with them, so I'm not sure if they made Joey keep all her silly new gear on . . . I do hope she kept wearing her tiara though . . . so pretty!
And she's definitely Visible, no? As are my newly blue toenails, there at the bottom of the photo.

So after a long hiatus, I'm joining Visible Monday today, over at Patti's. Go, check it out. See what all the cool kids are wearing.

  1. Oh I LOVE that dress; it suits your style and coloring so well, and is elegant but not studied. And the blue 'Vogs, always perfect... Sounds like a wonderful shower and weekend.

    1. Oh, I like that, ëlegant but not studied." I wouldn't have articulated that, but it's truly what struck me about the dress when I saw it on the rack.

  2. Your dress is so fresh, pretty and summery - and you look fantastic! What fun at the pre-wedding party - there are times when only a tiara will do . . .

  4. You look fabulous in that dress with those shoes, the latter, which, alas, had to come off, as they tend to do at all good parties - a good thing, especially when you have pretty blue polish on underneath. I'm glad you had sunshine and smiles all around. What a happy event.

    1. It was the perfect event for wearing heels since I was staying on the floor below, took the elevator up, then kicked off the shoes in about ten minutes! As you suggest, have to show off the pedi. . .

    1. Aw, you're so sweet. My DIL is the best -- we're a mutual admiration society. Actually, that's also the case with my sons-in-law. Fabulous guys I'm proud to consider sons.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
