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.

Exposed to the elements

This whole week has been nasty, rainy, and chilly... ugh! but at least I got to break out my beautiful blue top:

I spotted a teal-ish color within the pendant, so figured the this jacket would go with it and keep me cosy warm:

I feel a bit exposed in the top, like it goes too low. When I got dressed, it seemed to pass, but as the day wore on I just got more self-conscious. I don't want to sew it up, because it would cover the necklace and I love the combination of this top with it. I decided to experiment with another layer underneath:

I love how the necklace seems to sit a little higher... but the black is boring. I'm going to look for some gorgeous color to put in that space instead!

Broke these out for the first time in ages:

Top: via TJ Maxx
Jacket: VanHeusen outlet
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Ariat
Necklace (with earrings-not shown): gift
Shell: I forgot


  1. The necklace is beautiful! Love the blazer too!

  2. That is a lovely necklace. You look fab in blue.

  3. I don't think its too low at all and believe me...I am VERY conservative (never wear short things or low cut)!! lol The necklace really pops against your bare skin. BEAUTIFUL! Kiah

  4. Love the hair. Yippee for Happy feet!
