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.

Neutrals Week: Black Monday

I'm participating in a "Neutrals Week" challenge, but since I'm having a devil of a time grabbing Megan Mae's badge, here's the link.

Today was easy-peasy… Black:

The wires on these earring are tarnished, and could use replacing. But the earrings themselves were so cheap… is it even worth bothering with?:

But I love any excuse to wear my Rosetta Stone scarf:

Tuesday and Thursday look like the big challenges. I will definitely need to preplan those outfits!

Jacket: Talbots
Top: via Pip's in Corning, NY
Earrings: via consignment shop
Scarf: British Museum, London, UK
Pants: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Ariat via Sole Solutions in Spokane, WA


  1. I love that scarf. I almost bought one like it on ebay, but missed out on it. Very pretty black neutrals outfit.

  2. Love the bold print of your jacket! Thanks for joining us1

  3. Love the scarf and how you tied it.

  4. I just love your jacket! You look so chic and polished in that and the scarf. Heather

  5. I like the pattern mixing in the scarf and jacket! Nice look, Amy! :) And no, if the earrings were inexpensive, I wouldn't go through the trouble of replacing the wires. Unless you really, really love them, that is.

  6. Love your jacket AND that incredible scarf. It's like a slightly nerdy sartorial piece! My fav thing ever. I think the earrings are worth replacing. It's not very expensive to buy a whole bundle of new wires, and they're dead easy to attach with some needle nose pliers. Plus it extends the life of even cheap earrings!
