Keep trying

Today it felt like -5 degrees. Winter is on the way.

Today was a cruddy day in a litany of cruddy days.
Do you ever feel like you can't do anything right and never mind that but your in the midst of an ugly phase as well?

Le Ugh.

I dream of tutus all day long

The Gentleman Caller and I went to a wedding recently. It's a good excuse to get dressed up all fancy-like with bow-ties and tutus. All to celebrate love.

And having the chance to dance a jig in these shoes!

It all comes out in the wash.

A local shoe store was having a Fly London day. I just had to pop by to see what was up.
And then I bought shoes that were on sale but still far more than I should have been spending.

jacket: Old Navy
scarf: my mom's
top: Value Village
pants: Forever 21
shoes: Fly London

So I paired them with my thrifted sparkle top and thought the the cost of the whole outfit evened out.

Consequences of Forgetfulness

Shortly after moving into our home I had friends over. After they left and all the BBQ fixings and Sangria was put away I realized that one of them had left her cardigan.

I put it away until I would see her again. But it kept winking at me from the corner. So I wore it to work. It was so soft and cozy and such a lovely colour. So I wore it again.

cardi: accidental gift
scarf: Ricki's
top: Smart Set
pants: Forever 21
shoes: Red or Dead

Finally two months later I had the chance to give the cardi back and she said that it was a very me sweater and that it should be mine!

What an utter delight and I think of her whenever I wear it (which is often because it's awesome. Obvs.)

She's a lady

Long ago I bought a frilly dress...

It was always a bit short but I powered through. Now though? Far too short for a public servant and/or woman of my advancing age.

cardi: Ricki's
top: dress from H&M
pants: Forever 21
boots: Bed Stu

So now it's a top.

See? Hoarding can be a good thing when things have multiple uses.
