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.

Great Outfits... Too Bad About the Face

Monday's theme: "Flowers". Not. A. Problem:

Makeup on the other hand? Too much trouble.

I'm really down in the dumps because Hubby told me on Sunday night that he talked with the Boss on Friday. Hubby has used up his FML and has no idea when he would be able to get back to work. The Boss can't hold his job for him any more. So Hubby is officially "unemployed". We certainly aren't upset with the Boss, he's been really good about this... but this situation is dragging on too long with no end in sight. At least Hubby had the good sense not to ruin my weekend....

An older photo better showing the colors in the shell:

The pink in the top is a perfect match for my fun flats:

For a little extra "flower-power", I wore these crazy trouser socks:

I realized that I haven't worn these in a while:

Tuesday was another "can't be bothered to put on makeup" day. But I did follow the challenge! Tuesday theme: "Layer Up":

So I layered a sleeveless top with this awesomely cool sweater. I mean, just look at the gorgeous detail:

I broke another treasure I haven't worn in a while... my chain mail necklace:

I should have worn the actually-silver hoops, they would be a better color match for the necklace. But there weren't tooo bad:

A hair clip for my ponytail, because I was too rushed to blow-dry:

The only other "error" was wearing these shoes with those pants... it does look like a flood has hit. But most of the day, I wore my "office slippers", so I wasn't too concerned.

It does seem like a bit of a shame that such good outfits were "wasted" on no-makeup days when even my secretary said I look awful. I get puffy when I cry...

  2. Oh, I'm sorry, dear. That's terrible. And a burden on both of you.

    On the bright side, I'm sure the two of you will rebound, perhaps with something even better.

    Your outfit is exceptional. The top and shoes are wonderful.

  4. Really sorry about your husband. Hope his health and the whole situation pick up soon.

    I'm envious of your hair clip collection. I only have bobby pins. I'm going out today to buy some cute hair clips.
