Flannel and Suede

Today’s high was 81 degrees. Not quite flannel and suede weather, but I could pretend it was when I stood in the shade.

I may have been a wee bit sweaty in my autumn fabrics, but at least I wasn't wearing a fur coat!

Two Buttons, One Hood

The construction of this poncho is ingenious. It’s just a rectangular scarf, with two buttons and a hood. I love the simplicity of its design.

Feeling Fally

I’m known for my tunefulness; I’m always singing something. Problem is, I usually don’t know the words and either repeat the same portion of the chorus over and over or make up my own lyrics. “Feeling Groovy” has been on my playlist, lately. It’s the perfect song for inserting your own lyrics. (Also on never ending repeat: “Dreidel Dreidel Dreidel” sung as “Puppy Puppy Puppy.”)

Jacket, London Times. Dress, Ella Moss. Shoes, BCBGeneration. Pendant, thrifted. Bag, Clark’s.

And . . .

“Puppy, puppy, puppy, no puppies on the bed.
Puppy, puppy, puppy, if dad finds out we’re dead!”

On the Go

In my line of work, Mondays are supposed to be fairly relaxing, with most of my customers closed. It’s a chance to catch up on email and paperwork. This Monday was, instead, packed full of events that took me all over the greater Sacramento area and through some really terrible traffic. Thank goodness for audiobooks and comfy dresses to ease me into the week.

Jacket, Bebe (consignment). Dress, Under Skies (consignment). Shoes, Eileen Fisher (consignment). Sunglasses, Girl Props. Bag, Merona.

It was a fine morning for a river ramble with Jasper. We were both glad of a puppy break! (So I guess we would have been happy with gray drizzle, instead of crisp sunshine, as long as we were out of the house and moving. But the fair weather makes for better pictures.)

Sweater, Forever 21. Dress, Jams World (thrifted). Boots, Matisse. Earring’s, Rain’s Embellishments. Sunglasses and backpack, Target.
