Having made my peace with both my inability to take pictures when out and about, and the remote function on my little camera, I wanted to show you what I wore to my uncle’s memorial event.
You may remember this Eileen Fisher navy linen shirtdress,
Even when dressing quietly, even at 55, there’s fun to be had with shoes. No pop of color required, these suited a yacht club memorial event for a lifelong sailor.
I felt, as I said then, very Jackie O. The photograph points out, however, that Jackie would most likely have worn a longer necklace. This one rides above the neckline more pronouncedly than I could see from the motel mirror.
I know we are not the sort to forget pearls, but here’s a closeup.
Said closeup happens to bring my neck along. Well, what can you do? We have them, necks. They age, as we do. I blurred this, a little bit, not out of vanity but to protect your morning from intimations of mortality.
Let me say only this. Wear sunscreen between jawline and collar. Let it dry all the way before putting on your pearls. They’ll thank you. Jackie O. would approve, although she’d tell you, Grandes Dames add a hat and command the wind to stand down.
