Raise A Toast To Friends

Shirt – Lucky 7; Shorts – Smart Set; Shoes – Zellers

It’s hot out!  Yay!  But I have a stupid cold.  Boo! 
That’s okay ’cause I got to see a good friend today.  Baby and I went down to the local coffee shop *those people must think I’m weird ’cause I’m in there so much with constantly rotating people, but oh well* to meet a friend for tea.  And I must say it was wonderful.   We laughed, we cried,  but I feel really positive about where things will go from here.  Too often I think we let people fall by the wayside for the silliest of reasons.  But if you love someone – friend, lover, whatever – you owe it to yourself and to them not to let that happen.  And I really care for this person, so the fact that we had lost touch was sad.  But like I said, after today I feel really positive about where things will go from here.  
And speaking of friends, my friend was recently on a trip and she says that when she saw these magnets she immediately thought of me.
I know which is my personal favorite, but can you guess?

Sunday Can Be Arresting

Hat&Sunglasses – F21; Shirt – Smart Set; Shorts – Jacob; Sandals – Zellers.

It was very hot yesterday *yay!!!*  I wanted to wear long pants to cover all the bruises on my legs from the music video shoot , but seeing as that was just not possible I opted for Bermuda shorts.  They didn’t cover everything, but there was no way I would’ve made it through the day with long pants.  I spent a lot of time walking that day, and among the parks and shops and people cycling, I saw the other lovely sites of a large city:  someone getting arrested right in front of me and about three cop cars parked right there dealing with it.  Like I say, summer brings out the crazy in everyone.

What did you do with your Sunday?

“B%#$h Boots”

Husband started snapping shots while I was trying to get the music I just put on my phone to work.

I couldn’t figure it out.

I started to get a bit frustrated.

 This past Sunday I had a day out to myself.  I went browsing stores, had lunch, bought a trashy magazine and generally bummed around.  I needed that break after being alone with Baby for five days when she’s teething – whiny, sucky and crying from morning to night.  I needed a break.

So Sunday, after a wonderful run, I headed out.

Since it’s finally warm, the shorts have come out.  I didn’t used to wear shorts.  I was always oddly self-conscious about how my legs looked in shorts.  Don’t know why.  It’s not like I have any weird disfigurement that should make me self-conscious.  But I was.  Over the last few years though I’ve relaxed a bit about myself and gotten over some of those weird image idiosyncrasies *not all of them, mind you, just some*  And I’ve come to really love short shorts!  Since the weather said it was going to be warm with rain in the evening, I wanted something that would work for both.  Shorts for the warmth, long sleeve button up for when it got a little chillier in the evening, and boots for the rain so my feet don’t get wet.  Hence, this outfit was born.

Why was I staying out in the evening?  ‘Cause I was having dinner with the wonderful crew of Posthuman, the web series I’m working on.  And the title of the post comes from Jason, aka “Porter”, who referred to these gray slouchies as ‘b@$#h boots.”  Seriously, you need to check out this show!  Episode three has a tiny cameo before my character really jumps in and gets dirty, and the newest mini-episode gives you a little more background into who I’m playing – Dorothy Ascher.  Let me know what you think.  You know I love to hear from you.

Oh and don’t forget to check out the Behind-the-Scenes video below.  We get silly!

My Ruche booties!

This is what the table in front of me looks like.  Good thing you guys can’t see it on air!

Cardi &Boots – Ruche; Shirt – Walmart; Shorts – AE; Ring – Spotted Moth.
 *pardon the pics.  All I had was my old point and shoot and it was dark*

Monday was day one on the set of another music video that I did (you can read about that here).  And it was another hot and humid day.  To top it all off, I had to be up bright and early, and be prepared to go right from the music video set to Movieola to host a live on-air evening shift.  So, I decided to go for cute but comfortable.  Shorts and a sweet cardigan *it’s cold under the AC in the studio* and the Ruche booties are so wonderfully comfy.  They’re slowly becoming a go-to item for set days.

Tidbit:  I liked these boots so much I recommended them to my mom and she ordered a pair!

Brightly Colored Shorts

Fedora – Cuba; Sunglasses – F21; Shirt – AE; Belt – AE; Shorts – Ruche; Loafers – AE.

 It’s rainy and because of a lot of things I haven’t gotten dressed – just jeans and a clean shirt *at least I think it’s clean*  But!  It was beautiful and sunny a few days ago and I wore this little number, but I hadn’t had a chance to post it.  So here it is folks!  I absolutely adore the ruffles on the shorts and I have to say that it’s my first foray into colored shorts.  Only about two years ago did I start wearing shorts, and they were always black, but now not only am I wearing shorts, but they’re also brightly colored!  I love how fashion evolves with you.

On another note, I’ve been looking for a dairy free, soy free protein bar because I often need snacks and food on the go and I can’t really find one.  People have suggested things like Larabars, but to be frank, I don’t like them.  So I’ve concocted my own little recipe (it’s actually a twist on a recipe I came up with years ago) and I’m going to make them tomorrow night once I get all the ingredients.   I’ll be sure to post them and show you all how they turn out.  And most importantly, tell you how they taste.
