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.

Springtime spells- Monday through Thursday

The common thread for this week's outfits seems to be wishing for Spring/Summer! While the calendar claims it is spring, the winter weather is still clinging onto upstate New York like Sarah Palin clings to her political hopes after stooping to reality TV.

To both: please, just go away with dignity, already....


While I've got a sweater under that jacket, my Van Gogh flowers are there to coax the real ones back.


More sartorial flowers to encourage the real ones:

My favorite summer top, with a layer underneath to account for the cold reality of the situation. Which is that I feel like "natural fertilizer" (if you catch my drift), and went straight to bed with Nyquil the moment I got home.


I'm so tired of winter weather! I should be encouraging spring flowers, but I forgot to wear one this time:

But I am wearing a summer top pulled from the dark recesses of my basement. I am sick to death of my sweaters, and really want to be able to put them away! I really like the weird ribbon ruffle detail on this one:

[Edited to add]: Upon further reflection, the swirly design the dots are making looks vaguely floral.

OK, I mixed up the order of the days... but my head is infected, and I just want to sleep until it's 70F outside!


I just couldn't bear to wear a sweater today, so I went with a warmer jacket to cope with the Arctic chill. I thought combining this bright red jacket with the subtle blue and brown might make me look better than I feel... I'm sick, and going home to my bed and more Nyquil later.

But hope springs eternal... so my hair flower is another talisman to encourage the real ones to burst forth!


  1. I love your use of flowers in your wardrobe choices to coax spring out of hiding in your neck of the woods! And I agree with you, I like the ribbon detail in that top!

  2. I like your idea of wearing flowers to coax the real ones out of the ground. The one in your hair is beautiful.

  3. The outfits are great - I especially like the red jacket, but I have to add here: you look exceptionally pretty with your hair tied back! You have a real classic, romantic beauty and the way you are wearing your hair really enhances that.

  4. I am really wishing it would hurry up and get warm too! Love that you're thiking spring-like and wearing flowers in your hair! And that necklace you asked about is actually wood.

  5. What a pretty hair clip! Did it work? Did you see flowers sprout before your eyes?

  6. No flowers yet... after a deceptively nice Monday, all I got for my efforst was MORE SNOW!!!
