Steal My Sunshine

It’s another rotten weather day. I sat in a basement most of the day, with no windows, but was still acutely aware of the drizzle. I had to make my own sunshine with a bright jacket.

Jacket, blouse, and bracelet, Forever 21. Skirt, Andre Oliver (thrifted and shortened). Shoes, Antonio Melani. Bag, Caprice (thrifted and vintage).


Amusing kitten story to brighten your day: Walt has become overly interested in the insoles from my galoshes. It is too funny to see him stuff his fat body into my boot, pull out the insole, and run off with it. (He “disembowels” the insoles in the kitchen.) He is a little monster!

I had to wear those galoshes, again, today. Boo.

that top and coat pairing is GENIUS.

Kittens are funny. I don't think people believe when I tell them some of the things waffle does. It is nice to hear other people's wacky kitten stories. I go OH ok waffle is normal ha. I had no litus. Daisyboo is so mellow and wasn't a kitten when we got her. She is too dignified to do wacky things.

I like th mix of the two black and white prints.

I'm a cat lady, so cute cat stories always improve my day.

I love the pattern mixing between the skirt and top, and who doesn't love a short-sleeved jacket?!?

The combo of the jacket and the blouse is my favorite.

Kim said...

Oh my, I love this combo. It IS sunshine.

Sal said...

Oh how I'd love to see the galosh attack.

Lorena said...

What a simple, yet genius combo.
I have not dared to combine polka dot with anything... I will begin to next week...

I'm impressed you stay motivated to wear such cute clothes despite rainy and cold weather! We have been having the same weather, a serious lack of sunshine, and all I want to wear is wrap sweaters and scarves. You look great!

I'm all signed up and looking forward to the summit! My "date" hasn't confirmed yet, but I hope she will come as well! Looking forward to seeing how you come up with the re-cycled outfits you do! My imagination sometimes gets "stuck" and needs a renewed eye. You have the market cornered on re-mixing outfits and making them seem shiny and new!
