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.

What The Heck?

My pants look so strange in this pic:

Grrrrreeat... they must be caught on my thighs. In my next life, I would like normal legs. I do have feet, but Hubby cut them off again. Only in the photo....

I haven't switched out my closet for the season change, so my winter tops and sweaters are still in a giant bag in my bedroom. I'm amazed my poor husband hasn't broken his neck tripping over it. The clean laundry is still in a giant pile on the living room floor. So what's actually on the closet racks is pretty "picked-over". I decided to challenge myself!

I knew it was going to be warm today... so what could I wear without getting a top from the bag or the pile? The sleeveless top I wore today (old pic- really busy today):

I've had a love-hate relationship with the pattern-mix, but the colors are perfect together... and the other jacket that would work is too warm to deal with today. A closeup (I forgot the bracelet today):

Was starting to run late, so I grabbed these again:

And my old reliable wood bead necklace, which is actually two slightly different-colored ones screwed together. Now one of the ends is stuck that way. I guess that they're sealed for eternity....

I wonder... how long does someone call something "new"? You? I've had my three pair of new shoes almost 2 weeks now. Wore my new brown shoes again:

As for that whole "exercise" thing I've been talking about? I did weights on Friday. traveled on Saturday. Sunday, the only exercise I got was hauling laundry up and down my basement stairs as I did a zillion loads.... does that count? I missed Monday and Tuesday classes because I had another injection in my foot. Kinda difficult to do yoga or tai ji without the use of one foot!

But I made it to ballet today! I looked like an elephant having a seizure, but I did it. Except for the jumping parts-- I sit those out. My knees and ankles complain vociferously when I attempt to jump. The good news is that the "fix" shoes I bought for my heel soreness were pretty effective. I just needed more tape on the bottoms, which I applied as soon as I got home. So they are now ready for next time!

Whoops... need to put money in my jar for today and Friday....

  1. You made me laugh with the requirements for getting dressed. I will wait with bated breath for the day you wrestle the giant bag to the floor and free its

    After trying to take outfit pics for a year, I have a totally new appreciation for stylists. I always have something awry, and often, things don't seem to look quite like they did in real life.

  2. Great post !!

    Really love your pants they make your legs really long !! :)

    Hope to see you again girl :)



  3. You have been better than I have in the exercise department. I received three pretty major writing assignments last week on Monday that were due this past Monday...of course all requiring extensive sources citation. So that means my butt has been glued to the chair....grrr...

    I do like the pattern mix because the jacket is a subtle pattern.

  4. I believe when pants hang like that we call them "TOO BIG".

  5. Love the seaming on the blouse! I agree with freeda - the pants are probably too big. Congrats on making it to ballet. I need to step up the exercise routine again. I do a lot of walking during the day, but there's nothing better than dancing around.
