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.

Waiting room

I kept feeling like my color combination today resembles a waiting room at a doctor's office

Not seeing it yet? Maybe this will help:

The sweater could be the chair cushions, and the pants- the carpet! I mostly wanted to see if the cable-knit would look good with the nubby fabric. I wonder if they use this color combination so much at medical offices because some study indicated a calming effect?

My day was busy, but not too stressed- a desk day. Hence no jacket.

I still haven't decided if I like the color combination, or this chunky bead necklace with the cable-knit:

Cable-knit has always been a bit of a challenge for me, really. It's soooo preppy, which I'm definitely not. But I keep feeling like it's tougher to accessorize than other knits.

Or am I just overthinking this whole thing?

Sweater: Old Navy
Pants: Lane Bryant
Earrings: Gold Mine in Bath, NY
Necklace: Fashion Bug


  1. I think the sweater color is beautiful..looks great on you...goes perfectly with the necklace and doesn't look like a hospital waiting room at all! This color is a beautiful way to transition into spring colors...

  2. You're overthinking it - it looks great on you. Awesome colours for your skin tone.

  3. I like that colour. I like to wear shirts like the one you wore on March 24th under mine. The brown and blue would look great on you.

  4. Certainly looks good. And the necklace is very appealing.
