Almost All White

white birkenstocks

Wearing all white on a hot day in New Orleans.  I wore faux leather shorts with a loose knit jumper and white Birkenstocks.  The camo Ray-Bans are a change to the usual all blacks (I like it with the orange lippie).

Mother’s Day is coming up and my Mum is in St.Lucia.  Even though she’s miles away I feel connected to her because of this gold ring on my right hand. It’s been on my finger every day and appeared in blog posts for the past year since she gave it to me.  It was her mother’s ring when her mother was growing up and it’s been passed down to me.  Every time we do a Skype she blurts out: “oh good I see you’re still wearing the ring!”   Of course she’d kill me if I lost it (not an option).
I’ll send Mum some flowers on Sunday (and a pair of Birkenstocks – she loves them). I’ve seen a few of the Latest Birkenstock Styles and I’m tempted to get another pair! They’re so comfy and I just love how they look! They’re great for summer. I bet if she saw these new Ray-Bans from Sunglass Hut she’d want them too – typical Mum – but a small price for that ring.

    Love these Birkenstocks- think i may have to finally get a pair, even though we probably won’t get the weather for them in dublin!
    I don’t know if you read your comments on TwoKools as well as on here, but I just wrote a blog post about my love of your side blog and I’d love if you had a look! I put up a few pictures of couples from there too, but I did link you – if that’s not ok, obviously let me know. I just love how different it is from all other street style blogs, so I wanted to share it!

    • Karen says:

      Ah glad you like my couples blog : )

    Aw! Of course you can make birkenstocks look great! It’s cool that you feel so connected to your mother! New Orleans must be amazing–I’d love to see lot’s of pictures of the city as well! I have no clue what I’m doing for my mother for mother’s day, I better figure it out!

    • Karen says:

    • Karen says:

    • Karen says:

      Thx! the lipstick is by MAC and is Morange

    You look stunning in white! (You look stunning in everything but the white just suits you)…..I noticed the ring before I read about it. I had something similar from my Great Aunt when I was younger. Unfortunately Iost it in Lake Ontario. Be careful while swimming! 🙂

    • Karen says:

      Oh no. Thx for the tip although this one takes a bit of effort to come off so hopefully it should be ok
