Today was a productive day.  I was able to adjust the settings on my camera for better pictures and shot 10 outfits, whew!  Now I have enough images to write daily posts past next week.  I put all of the clothing and equipment away and cleaned up just before Honey got home around 3:00 p.m., then we went out for early primary voting in our area.  Tim leaves for work at 4:30 a.m., gets home around 3:00 p.m., then heads off to bed between 8:00-9:00 p.m. with me close behind.  We have always been on an early schedule like this due to his job.  I usually start fixing dinner right after lunch, but my new blogging schedule will modify that since I am having so much fun with my Flair Seekers.  I will post Monday through Friday, take Saturday off, then have a short Flair Share post on Sundays.

The Wrap Top is a classic style that is always around in one form or another.  I found this red floral top at a local vintage store about a year ago.  It is a double layered thin knit that is wrapped across and sewn into the side seam, the tie is stitched into the same seam, so there is no real wrapping and adjusting.  I tied it for this picture, sometimes I just let it hang down for a different look.  This style is very flattering on most body types and is slimming to the waistline.  Here is an option for you at Amazon, I may have to get the polka dot one, I have been looking for dots.   Sara wants this one, also from Amazon here.    Here is a HUGE assortment of prints and colors also from Amazon, I will be shopping these!

Adding a black cardigan and black gladiator wedge sandals is a nice option for evening or a dressy-casual event.  You can find  options for these two additional pieces in my previous post here.
