À la carte

7 Aug

Another event, another place where I have to dodge food. Sunday I went to Texas to celebrate my best friend’s 26th birthday over brunch with other friends. I rather loathe functions involving food but when in Rome do as the fatties Romans. Besides, I diet during the year to be able to eat on special occasions. I’ve been dying to wear this kaftan! I got it last fall and I wore it Easter as a dress shirt now I’m wearing it to stay cool in this blazing Texas heat. Kaftans are great for summer, they are light weight, loose with a crisp finished look to beat the heat in style.

Kaftan: Zara $59.90
RayBan’s Sunglasses: Target $89
Driving Moccasins: Cole Haan $98
Accessories: Watch Micheal Kors $250 and Bracelets Micheal Kors $95
Denim Shorts: (from a previous post that I cut into shorts)

    Those little oink fests are good metabolism boosters, right? That’s how I try to think of them anyway. JUSTIFY!

    Your style looks effortless and breezy. But can I make a few suggestions on your writing? My advice would be to get an editor. I see you post often and often do so with pictures, so you must be busy. This probably accounts for your mistakes in writing. It’d be easier to read if you had a proofreader, without one it makes it difficult for your reader to follow.

    Hey Oliver,
    Thanks for being such an enthusiastic commenter on my blog, I really appreciate the feedback. I think you’re a stylish young man, and I wish you all the best. However, I do believe your emphasis on weight and body image might be adverse to your own health and happiness, and that of your readers. I do hope you can find a way to be more accepting of your body because you really have nothing to be worried about, shapewise! I know this might be something I can’t fully grasp, and I know there is a large community out there that shares your fervor for all matters ‘thin’, but I felt a certain amount of concern while reading your blog. My readers matter to me, let’s just put it this way.
    I wish you all the best, and I hope I haven’t overstepped a boundary here, but I couldn’t not say anything about it..
    Have a nice day!
    Kind regards,

      All comments are welcome. No harm done. However, we all have different stories and this is mines. People find relevance in my writing, pics and comments. Same as you I care about my readers and they get me.
