Plus Ca Change

My first blog was a home and garden blog (emphasis on the “garden”). Newly transitioned to civilian life, living in a town where I knew no one, married to a man in law school, I spent all my free time digging in the yard, browsing nurseries or leafing through garden books. Eventually, I moved on to other hobbies: theatre, running, swimming, and socializing. Now, I have a whole new set of activities (but I still run and swim).

Wearing older pieces, like this blazer from the beginning of my style blog, prompts me to stop and reflect on how our lives change over the years (and how much I LOVE change).

Jacket, The Limited. Tee, American Apparel. Skirt, Victoria’s Secret. Pumps, Nine West. Sunglasses, Target. Earrings, Super Silver.

This tee is a souvenir from my second half marathon.

Hairstyes, like hobbies, change:

But I still like an animal print pencil skirt!

I haven’t totally abandoned gardening. I planted nasturtium along our walk and I support local farms with my bi-weekly box of organic produce. (You wouldn’t believe the volume of vegetables I consume! Sometimes, it feels like feeding an elephant.)

I remember that jacket! Your life *has* changed a lot in the last 8+ years (how long I've been reading your blog)!

I love nasturtiums - the petals are lovely on salads. Mmm...that meal looks amazing.

Yay for change :)
and wow - I love to see that jacket is still around. I have to say its almost like different 2 people :)

Hi! We don't celebrate Easter. I just wore workout clothes to train the dogs!

Hi! I've been reading your blog since the beginning, but have never commented before. It has been really cool watching your style evolve. I can't believe how many years it has been though. Cripes!

anybody in law school would leave you about 98% of your time as "free time" :(

I have a package of nasturtium seeds but it went from 70F here to 38F and supposed to go to 26F, so they will not be planted right now...>sigh<

Girls fashion and their age are always inversely proportional. You have fantastic stuff on this blog that keep the girls young and beautiful with you fashion tips. Being a fashion artist I really appreciate your efforts and work.
