DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

This got a good reaction from Hubby!

He stayed home sick today, so didn't see me until I swooped into the house for a whole ten minutes before I had to brave the crowds to get some shopping done. He noticed this top combo right away!

Yeah... this photo is after my usual hectic day, then rushing to get the Christmas cards to the post office, then a ton of shopping. I'm a bit frazzled.

This photo reminds me of an old post of Freeda's, where she discusses layering. She was speaking with an employee of some trendy money-pit store, and the salesgirl told her the company requires the employees to wear at least three layers of tops.

I'm starting to get it. This doesn't look nearly so sharp without the jacket.

Of course, I'm wearing the top backward to show more of the pattern. I figured I should keep the accessorizing to a minimum, so I could feature the print on the shell.

  3. I'm slowly learning to layer too. It's kinda a weird a concept to me ... why layer when I could wear something warmer? Oh, it's fashionable? Well, okay ... I'll give it a try. I guess.

  4. I love the layers. It gives an outfit that extra sense of depth. I'm still working on incorporating it more often myself. I usually end up too hot or too cold with layers.
