Inspiration: Midnight Sand


Thank you for all of your lovely comments from the previous post. Thankfully, I managed to get about thirty percent more of my data with searching and recovering old file versions.

Fortunately, for the rest of the week there were other things to distract me, such as the exciting news of getting a call from a long time friend unexpectedly, having a great day at a work event, and scoring excellent buys on eBay! Finding the positive in the simplest of things made the week roll by rather quickly. And, believe me ... I was ready for Friday!

I wore this outfit to an impromptu Mediterranean dinner after an appointment. This silk skirt is one that I've had for many years. Now, it's quite loose fitting in the waist, so I thought I would get a few more lasting wears out of it before pondering the notion of donating it or altering it myself.

I've loved this skirt so much over the years. Perhaps, it's the movement of the hem swaying as I walk or the painterly print and colouring that just reminds me of being on the beach at night. I think I've only paired the skirt with black or teal in the past, but this time I decided to be inspired by the beach—the deep blue sea, grains of sand, and the darkness of night.
