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.

Scarf Fun and Feature Earrings

FABruary Saturday theme: "Scarf Fun". I didn't actually get dressed on Saturday, but I did wash almost all of my scarves. They have been hanging uncovered in my closet for ages, and I've noticed some itching when I wear them lately. Hmmm... they must have been dusty. Now they are clean and nice, and covered with dry-cleaner's plastic. Yay me.

Tuesday theme: "Style a Skirt". Don't own one in my current size, so that ain't happening... I decided to use Saturday's theme instead using this freshly-washed beauty:

I'm a little chagrined because I forgot to put my jacket on before I went into the Boss' office to ask him about something. Here's the cause:

Holy boobs, Batman! As you can already tell, the jacket is the linchpin of this outfit. Just for fun, here's the rest of the construction of this look:

I safety-pinned inside the belt to keep the end from flapping around. You can kind of see my hair clip in the photo, but here's a closeup (old pic):

I really should get a gold-tone hair clip... that one was the best I could come up with to coordinate with my "Feature Earrings", which was actually Monday's theme. They are a bit of a style departure for me, but there is a story... Hubby's beloved late uncle (who I have never met, but I have heard a lot of lovely stories) made them for my mother-in-law. She has now given them to me, and I wear them with pride:

The belt started bugging me later in the day, and I ditched it before I went grocery shopping. I kept my shoes on, though:

  3. You are so funny. I never go shopping without my shoes too ;-)
    Never wore a scarf (pretty) like that but since I stopped eating dairy products one and a half year ago my boobs vanished from d to b cup. I swear whenever I start to detox the first day is the worst. I think about buying the book wheat belly. Maybe I´ll get healthier than :-)

  8. I thought the scarf was a shirt at first. The blazer is a great addition. I never would have thought about layering like that .

  9. Love that scarf. Is there any color you don't look good in? Because every color you wear I think "that's a good color on her".

  11. Hee! you made me laugh - the outfit looks very smart with the jacket on and the scarf is a lovely detail belted like that but I can see why you might have worried about walking in on the boss without the jacket on. Good outfit for a dinner date after work though!
