Morning Jacket

It’s cool enough for a jacket some mornings, now. In the afternoon, when I took these pictures, it’s a bit too warm, but I suffered for the sake of my art.

Everything is Awesome

Like most people, I’ve stopped using a proper alarm clock in favor of my phone (despite the risk of brain cancer from sleeping with an active cell phone next to my head). An all-in-one device is so much more convenient . . . AND I can select the sound (or song) that wakes me.

Dress, Peter Som for Kohl’s. Shoes, Lela Rose for Payless. Sunglasses, Target. Belt, thrifted. Bag, Melie Bianco.

You can tell a lot about a person from the sound of their alarm. I’ve known people that require blaring sirens and others that choose a soft instrumental piece. I’ve got a few different alarms set up for different wake times. My song choices: Raiders of the Lost Ark (main theme), The Beauty Underneath (from Love Never Dies, the sequel to Phantom of the Opera), What Does the Fox Say?, and, as you expected, Everything is AWESOME!!! (from the Lego Movie).

I guess my choices mean I’m adventurous, introverted, silly, and upbeat. What sound wakes you up?

I initially paired this shirt and dress because I liked how the patterns played together. Then, I realized that the shirt’s open back would align with the dress’ upper back cutout. I love it when little details like that work out.

Shirt, Sans Souci. Dress, Under Skies (consignment). Shoes, Seychelles. Earrings, vintage. Sunglasses, Target. Bag, Mellie Bianco.

Holy Sweater

What sort of sweater do you wear when the temps dip down to 88 degrees? One that’s full of holes. Or one that’s been blessed by a priest. Take your pick.

My schedule doesn’t accommodate much food preparation, so, when I get to eat lunch, I eat out. Beefy is pretty jealous that my route takes me past the best eateries in the area. He’s stuck with Jamba Juice, Jack in the Box, and an admittedly pretty good Thai place near his work. I make it up to him by agreeing to return to my lunch haunts for dinner.

Dress (worn as a shirt), Eddie Bauer (thrifted). Skirt, vintage, thrifted, shortened, and embellished. Shoes, Gianni Bini. Sunglasses, Target. Earrings, vintage. Bracelets, Tala’s Distant Treasures, gift, and Mixit. Bag, Gianni Bini.
