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.

Not-too-girly flowers

Guess I'll put this one up for "Visible Monday" and maybe "Thursdays are for Thrifters", depending on how the week evolves. But the photo is another bangup job by Hubby:



Although the blurry effect turned out kind of arty…

More of the sweater:



I really like how well the flowers line up along the cardigan buttons. Definitely time to take the jacket to the cleaners, though.

And my go-to earring when I want something white:



I just think seed pearls are so cute:



New "blurb" I'm tossing into some of my posts, given the shock I suffered about my physical conditions, or lack thereof:

Fit and Fashionable: Sunday was weight machines, then swiming with Stinky. Lost one of my gold hoops, which I stupidly wore into the pool- and the waterslide. ._.

While this isn't a "diet and exercise" blog, I hope someone would remind me if it starts looking like I'm living like veal!

  1. Really cute cardigan, I like the graphic floral look.

    I think you should add in an element weekly/daily whichever works for you. Blogging about it, or using a personal private journal is always helpful for keeping on track. I used a daily and weekly meditation journal for four months for a class and found it easier to look back over past experience and learn from what I was doing.

  6. I really like this outfit. I have a cardi that I think I will wear as a blouse under a jacket. Great idea!
    You look really great in the outfit.
    In yoga today we were doing dolphin planks. Well at least everyone else was. I was trying but not quite getting there. Keep up the exercise. It is worth it.

  13. I think it's really cool how you do this whole blog from your Droid phone because I have a droid and there's no way I could do this. I'm not good enough on my phone. hehe, I like the floral print and you look good so I vote it as Flattering :)

    Cute post, following you now
