I haven't posted any words forever...and there's no good reason. (But I'll make some excuses anyway.) Summer ended with a bang (i.e. we came back from Europe to a house filled with boxes and impending start of school and there was no time to think let alone write). I've used all my free time to go to yoga so that I don't lose my mind in the mania of things. It's only sort of helped.
Finally though, things are mellowing out. I still have a hundred house projects to do in order to really be settled, and I can't get a contractor to call me back to save my life, but overall, it's mellow. So of course, that leaves a little bit more time and a clear opportunity to buy some new shoes. I showed these to my best friend on Sunday and she said "yikes, those are ugly.' You be the judge, I think they are super cute on...they've got a Lauren Hutton vibe -- she always pulls off the menswear look so well! Besides, my feeling is that we can't always be predictable right? Sometimes you have to step out and wear something that isn't in your style soundtrack (and I don't really have any shoes like this at all.) I think it's super cute to cuff up the jeans and let your darling Little River socks show (and the slouchy style is perfect with my Emerson COH boyfriend jeans). I also own this Velvet plaid shirt and I LOVE it...feels like fall but it's lightweight and easy to layer on these confusing days where it is freezing in the morning and 80 degrees at 3 p.m.!
