Ah. I love those days. They sure don't happen very often--and I'm not having one today, darn it. In fact, they happen for me around twelve days a year. Usually on the days when I'd pass the smiley-face test with one of these:
Don't tell me if those days disappear when the whole menopause thing starts, because I'll just kill myself now!
I was delighted with everything on Saturday, hormones or no. Speaking of babies, I attended a baby shower in the late morning. Our hostess made this fabulous diaper cake (made of diapers, not cake):
I also went to a Boy Scout Car Wash, a men's clothing store, the bank, and out to lunch with my guys.
I didn't spend a lot of time planning my ensemble because I knew I wanted to wear my brand new Norma Kamali Snow Trees shirt and my new black leather jacket. VERY excited about the jacket. Butter-soft and fits well.
Do I look grumpy? I wasn't. I think this was about the 50th pic that P took of me. He's soooo patient. But he did a great job. (Thanks, honey!)
Something to notice: Style wisdom says that you should be able to measure your front look in three fairly equal sections. I did okay here. The short-waisted thing makes it awkward. And after seeing many of the other pictures, I think I would like the jeans to be an inch longer and the shoes correspondingly higher (though these were clogs--a nice, tall book would've been fab). So many things to think about.
Over the course of this blog, I'll point you in some directions for figuring out what looks good on YOU! Your first assignment--should you choose to accept it--is to watch the first couple seasons of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style. You'll learn plenty. I promise.
