How I'm wearing it: grey day

Hi all. Wow, what a day. I hope all of you with friends/family in the areas affected by today's earthquake/tsunami hear from them and, if you're in those areas, that you're safe.

In other news, today I had to go out tutoring my French girls, before which I whipped up a batch of my world-famous (what! My family is scattered around the world!) oatmeal-cheesecake bars. You see, I just got home from tutoring and in a couple of hours, I'm meeting good friends for Mexican food, after which we're all coming back home to watch 'Bringing Up Baby' (both my friend and I were raised on it: our [foreign] husbands have never seen it). So I wanted to have dessert waiting for them.

When I left the house, it was pouring rain and gross. Now it seems better, but I based my shoe+leg choice on the weather (boots and leggings). Again, I was absolutely stymied with deciding what to wear, up until the very end. And, looking at the picture below, maybe I should've thought further:


I don't know - I'm not feeling it, although I was comfy and continue to remain that way. Is it the muddy, washed-out tones? Is it my tentatively weird expression? Is it the all-too-visible thighs? I don't know. I did like, though the use of the turquoise necklace with the clothes. That's about all I can say.

In other news, though you can't tell in the photo. My hair is finally starting to settle into normalcy. I mean, I can kind of do anything with it and it finally falls into a shape that I like, without need to futz with it endlessly in front of a mirror. Hmmm...maybe I'll have short hair for a few more years again. It took me TWO MINUTES to dry it people. TWO MINUTES! Sigh. Happiness.

All right, y'all. I need to go cut up some bars and dream of margaritas. Any fun Friday night plans?

  1. What a day indeed. Sigh. I sending all my positive thoughts east.
    On a lighter note, your cheesecake bars sound great and I love the turquoise necklace - it really pops with they grey sweater!

  2. I'm loving the neckline in this look...the long neck, the necklace, the glasses, the short hair. Portrait time!

  3. Thanks, guys! The turquoise necklace and the bars really ended up saving the day.

  4. Ooh, I really like your hair! Very cute.

    Sounds like a fun evening - I love "Bringing Up Baby"! I played board games with my husband and had some wine. :)
