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.

Wishing it were spring...

OK, I'm glad my area isn't hit by snow like others, but it's bitter cold and dry here. But I really wanted to wear this top I pulled out of the Space Bag:

Obviously, this needs to be layered under something. It's very lightweight, and actually a bit snug. But it will pass under a jacket, and the pretty twist detail still shows:

Now I won't freeze to death, or look like a big fat fatty!

At different times, it seems the colors do or do not match. Hmmmm....

It's really dependant on the lighting, but looks like I can pull it off. Good enough for government work! I really wish I had a pair of nice cream pants. Impractical, I know.... but it would be so much sharper than brown, which was the best I could come up with:

Black is too harsh, navy too close to black. Or is it? Maybe I'll try navy another time.... Oh well, I spend too much time in grungy courtrooms with dirty people to wear cream pants, so brown it is....

At least I get to wear my anniversary necklace! I've had a tough time figuring out how to show it to it's best advantage, but I think it works here. Yay!

Is it weird that it bugs me that the gold color in the earrings doesn't exactly match that of the necklace?

Top: Ann Taylor outlet
Jacket: VanHusen outlet
Pants: Lane Bryant
Earrings: JC Penney
Necklace: random jewelry store in Ithaca, NY


  1. Anal much? I think it's very pretty and all looks nice together.

  2. Nice ensemble! I love the different shades of blue. They all come together in perfect harmony!

  3. (Ha ha...!!Freeda!!- wish I had a sister- lol) I love that top! I also worry when I wear a light-weight top that it looks too "springy" but that top looks like a frost pattern or even snowflakes! AND It doesn't look too tight... it looks totally awesome-even under that great jacket. Great outfit. You look really good...
    Love the new look of your blog...

  4. Dee- I can't take credit for the new blog look... the bulk of it is Freeda's doing! Thanks sis!

    I now see what you mean about the pattern on the top... didn't see it that way before!

  5. Beautiful top. A great element for any outfit.

    And that necklace is truly special. Enjoy it.
