Isn't this picture adorable?? The girl, not me. I will get to that story in a minute!
I am behind in updating the items that are outta here! So, I am going to do it RIGHT NOW!
The Pencil Skirt I got from the UK is gone!
I am yet undecided about the Ellie Mae Clampett Schmatta - sorry Karyn!
Ms. Green Jeans has had her last outing! The shoes are staying!
I wasn't sure about this one, and you guys agreed - the kinda brown dress is gone!
You guys really did NOT like these jeans! They will be retired...not worn again, in the next year at least. I think I am still emotionally attached at this point, so no giving away yet!
If anyone is really interested in anything, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The skirt - fits like a 6.
The green cords are J.Crew size 6.
The kinda brown dress is Anne Klein size 6.
Okay, on to today.
A Monday Morning.
A dreary Monday Morning.
A Monday morning where I can't even figure out why I am cranky, other than being tired from tossing and turning all night.
But what a smile I got because of this little girl!
I have always wondered what the kids thought as they were waiting for the bus; Ben and I stepping out onto the porch for the daily photo shoot. Today, there were 2 little girls. Ben took the picture of me, and out on the sidewalk in front of the house, these girls appeared to watch. I told them to pose, and asked Ben to take their picture. We did not notice the pose at the time.
I headed off to work, not even giving final approval on the pics. I told you, I was a bear this morning.
Ben called me up laughing. "Wait until you see the picture!" he exclaimed. When I got to the parking garage, I opened the email - and laughed out loud. My little friend here has obviously been watching the "photo shoots" each day. She struck my favorite pose! When you are somewhat straight-waisted like I am if you put your hand at your waist, it creates more of an appearance of an hourglass figure. What do they say? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?
I purchased this dress from eBay about a year and a half ago. I always wear it with this belt; this will be a challenge for me should I choose to wear it again this year! To me, it is like a giant scarf with room for my head and arms! If you don't like it here, it is because you have to see it in person. I get lots of compliments when I wear it.
I decided it was time for the boots to make their first appearance of the season. These boots were a gift from Ben last winter. We got them on an evening when I took him out on a date. The date was to take him out to all of the places that I would go by myself on a Friday evening before he and I started dating! I wanted him to know how he had changed my life!
We headed first to DSW. I tried on a ton of shoes and boots. I have muscular legs so some boots can be a challenge. I decided I liked this pair; Ben decided he would buy them! After DSW, we wandered aimlessly around the local mall before heading to dinner at Granite City Brewery. A cocktail was had and a salad was shared. Yes, that is how I would have "taken myself out" on a date prior to Ben!
Well, off to log the rest of my food at NM!
Please vote on the dress and belt below!
