If Fran can do it...

(Sweater, Shoes- Anthropologie, Tank- J Crew, Jeans- AG Stevie Ankle)

I decided that I could wear spots and stripes together because if my tabbies, Fran and Gracie, can do it, so can I. Admittedly it looks better on them, but then, they are cats, they always put all other living things to shame in the appearance department. 

I'm on a bit of a role doing the blog stuff lately. I'm sure both you readers noticed that. Hey, anyone got any tips on how to promote this little endeavour of mine? Facebook is being dinky about posting links to this site. Probably because they don't own it so they won't acknowledge it. Grrr.

Grandma's Couch

(Blazer- Aritizia, Top- J Crew, Necklace and Pants- Anthropologie,
Shoes- Steve Madden)

I'm not sure I captured the Grandma's Couch floral-ness of this blazer in my representation. It's pretty terrific. I put it on wondering if it might be a bit much but then a stylish fellow at the book store said it was awesome, so that felt good. And then an old lady at the drug store stopped me to say how lovely my coat was. Could be that she was a mega-stylish broad going incognito OR it could be that my coat reminded her of her decor, complete with cat fur. Either way, I rocked it, fur et al.

Thoughtfully Blue

(Jeans- AG, Blouse- Modcloth, Sweater and Flats- Anthropologie)

Sometimes my drawings are so thoughtful that I have to add an actual thought bubble to show how introspective I am. I'm so deep.

Yes, this is another blouse that has kitties on it. And bees on my shoes too. For those of you who know the Binky books, I'm being very clever and thematic. For those of you who don't know the Binky books, I look like a nutbar.

Neutral Times

(Blouse- Madewell, Belt- Aritizia, Skirt- Anthropologie,
Bracelet- J Crew, Shoes- Winners)

I finally do a post and it's all neutrals (which means it's super easy paint.) I can only be satisfied wearing neutral colours if I'm doing a good ole' pattern clash. If my outfit isn't slightly migraine inducing, then I'm not dressed right.

Man, I love long skirts.

And then I was in Toronto...

Hey sports fans, so I've been off and away in Toronto doing school visits and attending the forest of reading celebrations. Unfortunately I not only returned with armloads full of shiny new clothes, but also with a wicked cold. So instead of showing off my rumbled pj's, I figured I'd show off some outfits and sweet deals that I rocked while I was away.

Hope to be dressing like a real live person soon...

Summer Stripes

(Dress- Gap, Belt- J Crew, Scarf- Winners, Shoes- Anthro)

A few decades ago I wore this dress because we had one day of summer! It's so over now, but thankfully the ticks are here to stay. Yipee.

Anyway, I tried out the striped dress thing. Didn't think I could rock this look at my advanced age, but I think I managed to pull it off. And if I didn't, so what? It was two weeks ago. I've moved on.
