The Woman in the Gray Flannel Dress

I made a spontaneous purchase of this dress last week at Pink, in Saranac Lake.  I loved the silhouette, and the size. A medium.  And not just any medium.  A boutique medium.  I really  look forward to styling the dress all winter.  Layers!

Dress, Tulle, Pink, $58; cardi, Victoria's Secret; tights and necklace, Target; boots, Madden Girl.

Corduroy Road

The phrase corduroy road always reminds me of my grandmother.  And this gorgeous cape, sewn by a dear friend, reminds me of her too.  She would have loved the fabric.

My girl loved it too.  In fact, I had the tweedy side out first, and she asked "Mom, why is your scarf thing on inside out?"  The joys of reversibility!

So I flipped it, and let the compliments roll in, all day long.

Boots, Madden Girl; skirt, Victoria's Secret; cape, sewn by the lovely Laura.

If you don't live near here, you might have seen sun sometime in the last week.  We have not.

I should have worn colors in preparation for grey days to come.

This outfit was an attempt to grab some sunshine.

It may have worked.  The forecast calls for a week of sun.  I will believe it when I see it.

Waist High

I love a good ol' high waisted trouser.  Hit me at the smallest part of my torso? Check.  Expand below the waist band to make room for dinner? Check. No potential for unsolicited underwear viewing? Check. This pant prepares me for everything (and here's where I transition oh so smoothly and cleverly) including the Girl Scouts award dinner.

I was not a scout.  But I see now what a cool organization they are and if Eva ever requests membership, I will encourage her.  And this dinner...other than making me feel like an underachiever is just great.

And I got to catch up with a friend I never see, even better!

Trousers, Anthropologie; Sweater, Loft.

Pink Tops and Blue Skies

There is nothing so nice as these falls days with cool breezes, hot sun, and blue sky.  And pink and blue just work together!  And throw in denim, too...

 This outfit was for yesterdays all afternoon training, which was followed by a Board meeting.  And I am really realizing that I have got a bottoms problem.  I can not POSSIBLY be the size that is one down from this one...but yet...Clearly, my pants are too big.  Aaargh.

Pants, JCrew; cardi, Lands End Canvas; blouse, Loft.

My second adventure in pink and blue was the corn maze! A perennial fall girl is really getting into to it, but the little guy is just too big to carry and too small to keep up (both with his legs and interest.) Nevermind, we had a great rocktop rest and photo op.

Jeans, Lands' End; sandals, NAOT; tee, Planned Parenthood, baby!

Bus Stop

New routines, new rituals...we now incorporate the bus stop each morning and I realized it is perfect outfit timing...good light, no mess behind me, and a handy photographer!  But also two hams who want to be still in pjs.

Can I just say this, though? Lived here almost 8 years and am feeling pretty right in saying there is no one in a wheelchair on that section of road.  Perhaps the sign is there because the road to the park is there...But maybe an actual crosswalk might be better?
