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!

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?

Linens and things (like weather)

I can not exaggerate the difference in my dressing when I am blogging and when I am not.  I just make an effort.  (Well, duh, hello blog name!)

 Case in point: Earrings! Belt!

For those of you who don't live five minutes from the North Pole (not the real one), we are entering the confusing time of year for dressing.  Even if you follow the weather report as closely as I do (see previously mentioned need for a new roof), you still might get a surprise as you go about your day.  Today, I was perfectly dressed for the cool morning, and overheating by noon.  Not to complain, in a month, it could be snowing.

Oh, hello there.

Let me give this another try.  So much going on, so little time to blog.  And summer.  And rain.  And the blues.  So let me start with that:  the blues.

I finally ironed, and seeing all the clothes to be done mounded up in the living room, I remembered that I do have a few things to wear.

I am on a shopping hiatus because we need a new roof and covering the house is more important than covering my body.  So you will be seeing some old favorites in coming weeks, at least until we get all the estimates and I know how painful this home improvement project will be!

Pants, J Crew; tank, TJ Maxx; necklace, from book club pal Lori!
