Kaszubian Jeans

Statement jeans, I looooove them.  Something about taking the basic staple and going buck wild on it.

Just Do

My Wild Saturday Nights

I’m outta control, I tell ya.

Leaves Are Falling….

…so we’re firmly into Fall.  The layering begins. I do love the golden light that drowns the richer colors.  I do love the tones that start to dominate the city.  But I deeply lament the end of the warmth.  It feels like I’m breaking up with the Sun.  It feels like we’re giving each other the parting kiss goodbye.

And I don’t like that.  Absence does not make the heart grow fonder.  As much as I love the rich hues of Fall, my heart will always lie with the bright and vivid hues of Summer.

This is How We Roll…or How A Toddler Saved Her Dad

Andrew made a mess of the counter and walked away.  I walked up to said counter, looked at it, and turned to him, “Really?  Is this how we roll in this house?”  From the peanut gallery on the couch came a little girl voice, “No Mama!  I show ya.”
She got on the floor on her back and proceeded to barrel roll down the length of the kitchen saying, “Look!  This is how you roll Mama.  See?” 
I looked at Andrew and said, “You realize she just saved your butt, right?”
Side note:  these palazzo pants are so amazing.  I think other than pleather pants, palazzo pants are my other love.

1950’s Propaganda Poster

I only buy cheap sunglasses.  Why?  Because I break them all the time.  I’m just cruel to them.  So of course, when mine broke the day before because I rudely shoved them to the bottom of my purse, I had to get a new pair.  I branched out a bit and went with aviators, and I’ll tell you why.
I wore an almost exact version of this outfit a few days back, and one man said to me, “You look like a 1950’s propaganda poster…but in a good way.”  With this on my brain, it seemed that the only sunglasses I could buy was a pair of cool aviators.  Now I’m so glad I did.  Aviators rock.

Compulsion

Dress – Dear Creatures via Emerging Thoughts  //  Sweater – Jacob  //  Tights – Hansel from Basel  Shoes – ModCloth  //  Earrings & Necklace – c/o This Enchanted Pixie
This uncontrollable urge.  An urge I can’t resist, no matter how hard I seem to try.  The urge to wear something red with any of my Dear Creatures dresses.  I have two and thus far I have been unable to resist the urge.  I have to either wear a red sweater, or tight, or as in this case, red shoes.  But when red shoes are in the sale rack for $11 dollars and are brand new can you really blame me for giving in?  I can’t resist their siren song.

Chocolate and Wine Only

Vest – I forget.  It’s old.

I’m calling these my grumpy pants.  Not because they make me grumpy, but because when I’m feeling grumpy and don’t want to wear anything it’s these pants I turn to. Seriously, I think Palazzo pants might be the best thing ever invented because they’re like sweatpants you can wear in public while looking fashionable. 

It just doesn’t get better than that.

Okay, well maybe if there was a doctor approved “chocolate and wine only” diet for healthy living.  That I could really go for.  While wearing these pants.
