While at first glance this may appear to be just another mediocre photo of a boring outfit. However, if you look closely there are some remarkable details such as:  I am wearing earrings, I got a pedicure (my toes have been trashed by running but I managed to grow back enough of them to get them painted), I shaved my legs (mostly, don't look too closely), and I was able to zip up this skirt for the first time in quite a bit (I know it looks too tight but it actually isn't).

Oldie But Goodie

If there is one upside to spending months only wearing clothes from floor of your closet - it is when you do bother to look for something hanging up, you find a great skirt you forgot you owned.   Sadly, my ability to write coherent sentences has not yet been found.

I love a white cotton dress on a hot summer day.  I don't love trying to wash out the inevitable stains that will be spotting this dress if I attempt to eat or drink anything today.

Shoes: Target

But of Course I Speak French

A thousand years ago my friend Julie's husband Dave was talking about moving to Quebec and when we questioned his ability to speak French - he said, in a very bad French accent, "but of course I speak French, what is it I speak now?"   mr. deathstar and I still repeat that joke to this day.  Which is probably sad but also true.

Other true facts:

  • this outfit needs a belt
  • I just dumped pink lemonade down the front of this shirt leaving a pink stain
  • I have had the song Waltzing Matilda in my head since Saturday where there was an impromptu sing-along at my dad's wedding reception

Blue and Black Monday

I am not sure what is more distracting in this photo - my cat photo bombing the shot or my shirt which makes my boobs look huge.
