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.

I went to Tai Ji AND to Zumba tonight... yay me! But before gym time, here's me at work:

My hair dried really flat and weird today, because I had to head out with a wet head. Not that it made much difference, as it rained most of the day, anyway. You can see what I mean better:

*smh* I really like this jacket, but I don't get to wear it much. I bought it a few pounds ago, and I can really only wear it with a snug shell because it's a bit small to wear normal tops under it right now. So I broke out one that I can only use as a layering piece. It looks OK in the front... but the back:

Is best kept covered all day by the jacket... unless I'm sitting in my tall office chair. I hate my bra... it cost a freaking fortune, but it gives me "back boobs" that I never had before! This pic doesn't even show the worst of it! Oh well.... here's the accessories:

I thought I had a closeup pic of the chain stored in Photobucket. I was mistaken. The bracelet was the "focus accessory", so I thought it best to keep everything else simple. So, a simple silver chain and plain silver hoops:

Driving in the morning fog around here is actually pretty cool. I really like how the hills poke up through the fog line. There were better examples of this when I was driving, but I could only really pull over into a junk auction house parking lot for photos... for safety. But here's a hint of what I see:

While I was there, I spotted this treasure that I don't normally see from the road:

Just as I was pulling out to head in to the office, a man pulled into the lot. I immediately started cracking up! I  just had to turn around for a pic:

Have I mentioned that I live in a very odd place?

  1. OMG -- a wooden railway car! How cool.

    And, btw, you're looking good today. Just sayin'...

  2. Great bracelet! And I like the pics of oddities. :)

  3. Uh are kicking my butt when it comes to getting in the workouts. Had to work on a 'human subjects research' certification that took 14 hours of sitting on my butt to complete. Gotta love grad school.

    1. Will you be pouring shampoo into their eyes?

  4. Congrats on the workouts - I'm on day 23 of P90X myself. BTW, I do like the hair and the jacket - very vintage inspired!!

  5. love the jacket ...

  6. That is a great jacket - I actually think those boxy jackets look better when they are a bit snug. And your hair looks wonderful.

    I hate buying bras, but know that good ones are important. I'd be bummed if I'd spent a lot and I didn't look great - all the way round!

  7. You certainly don't dress like Ally McBeal! I wonder why professional women on TV - unless they work in fashion or magazine - never wear prints. Prints are fun, ain't them!
