Not Your G-Ma’s Wardrobe
Happy September! Hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend-
I spent part of mine not feeling well and in a bad mood because of it..
And for some reason, those 2 things led me to paint the bathroom.
I am sure many of you can understand how that is a natural progression..
Now that September is here, the days are already getting a little cooler.
And the nights are downright chilly!
So I am back to my favorite style trend – layering..
I got this little dress at Target last spring on clearance for around $10
I have worn it many times, usually as an open jacket with jeans.
But I also love how comfy it is with leggings.
These leggings are black with tiny white polka-dots on them.
I don’t often mix patterns, that is just so scary for me!
But I love it when I try it and it works – it makes me feel daring and free. Courageous..
Because mixing patterns is so courageous you know..
Ok – I suppose when you put mixing patterns up against something like throwing yourself
on a hand grenade to protect someone else it doesn’t quite measure up.. but for me it is brave
And, in another act of sheer bravery, I put that center photo in.
The one that shows my sagging face and jowls..
Why did no one ever tell me I would get jowls?
I have found that I now look best in pictures taken from above – so that I am looking up.
That minimizes the whole jowl/double chin/saggy face aging thing..
Unfortunately I now require a photographer that is at least 7 feet tall…
I would think in another year I will need him to use a ladder – and I can see myself eventually getting
to the point where the photographer will need to take my photo from a satellite orbiting the earth..
And don’t even get me started on chin hair and excessive eyebrow growth..right?
Ok – this post has begun to sound like a rant..
I can hear you all thinking – ‘maybe blog retirement was a good idea after all’..
I will quit now while you still love me – I hope!
And I will leave you with a couple of pictures of our basement remodel – we have the new
floor in and are beginning to transfer our family room furniture down there.
I am loving the new floor!
It is like a clean slate right now - I am excited to start putting it together!
Hope you all have a great week -
