I’ve decided to do a 180 and exhibit my outfits first, since, after all, an outfit’s worth a thousand words. Just saying.
I was inspired by a newspaper clipping from the WSJ (thanks, mom) that showed little cardigans with big, full skirts. I don’t have any little cardigans. I don’t have any big, full skirts. But…I have a cable-knit, v-neck, off-white sweatervest (from the boys’ department…oh yeah). And I have a pleated red skirt (reminding me suspiciously of a little skirt my grandmother made for one of my mother’s Barbie dolls…hmmm). Put them together and you get:
But something wasn’t right. I couldn’t put my finger on it, until…
Yes, I had to do the teeny-bopper, 50s girl ponytail. Then I felt much better about the outfit.
My second fashion choice was simple. I wanted something classy and not overdone, so I went with the classic LBD.
I have a feeling I already posted this, but I’m just going to do it again. Booyah.
Another day I was feeling particularly artsy, so I paired my navy lace Forever21 dress with a textured smoking jacket, black tights, my brown shoes, and this lovely brooch.
And last but not least, because I know how much you love looking at pictures of food like I do, I present a wordless recipe.
I’d let you have some, but they’re gone already.
