I come home from work today after wearing it (and no comments like WOW, I like your dress so thats always a sign) and ask the hubby what he thinks... "the colors abit dull.... and it kind of looks like a sack...." Nuff said. That was what I had originally thought to myself in the changeroom.
I'd say what doesn't work is that its not a good length for me, the color is okay and the cut is not completely flattering (I also better suit more structured pieces).
I'm curious about your HONEST opinion on this and maybe even ideas for how to better style it.
Its all for the learning right? :)

I don't think I shared with you that I'm also on Day 16 of the Whole30 eating plan. I pretty much eat this healthy most of the time but following this diligently has been really good. I'm going down the other side now (more than half way through is what I mean) and my energy has only been going up more and more. Today I felt like a superhero like I was pretty much running up the stairs everytime I had to use them. CRAZY. And fun :)
How was your day? Have you ever done Whole30?

Welcome to the mess of our "under construction" back yard. We're digging the perimeter drainage right now so everything is torn apart and its only put a 1 year delay on my big landscape design project. Here we got a quote to get the work done and it was $12,000-$14,000 to pay someone else to do it. OR we do all the hard digging work and pouring additional concrete etc and then hire someone to come and only lay the new pipe for $2,000. BIG difference. SO the whole yard has been a massive ditch with broken pipe and piles of dirt and chunks of broken pavement all over it. WELL, this also meant I didnt have to mow the lawn all summer. There is almost no lawn showing.
Full on brown outfit today. Brown tweed capris with brown short sleeve turtle neck and my favorite brown boots. Today is DAY 1 of boot season for me. I finally caved and acknowledged that fall is fully here.
I bought this jacket a few weeks ago and have worn it about 3 times. Then realize one of the buttons has not just fallen off but it BROKE off. The string is all still there and a small piece of button. HOW annoying that they didnt include a few extra buttons with the jacket. The store also won't let me exchange it because it was on sale. Now I'm on a hunt to find a replacement button or full on replacement buttons for the whole thing. Makes me feel abit like Martha Stewart.
What would you do if you lost just 1 button in the middle part of your jacket?

Today is my first day of wearing booties and socks. YES socks. If I could, I would wear shorts and short skirts all year round. I love having bare legs and no socks/tights. I guess I can't complain though because it is quite reasonable here on the west coast in terms of temperature. Not much to report on other than I'm also doing Whole30 right now. I pretty much each really really healthy already but thought I would try this 30 day challenge. Today is day 7 and smooth sailing. Will keep you posted and report on results soon!!
Hope you all had a great day too.

I got up, got dressed, had a small snack and ready to run for 6am.
The plan was to test out my new HOKA Stinson Trail Shoes.
I'm doing my 7th 50 km trail run this year this coming weekend and can't wait. Nothing like running through the forest with purple air on your feet :)
BUT I didn't end up going running this morning. WHY you may ask. Well, luckily I checked my email before I went because I saw the warning that there was cougar in our area. The last sighting was only 2 blocks from our house. This is VERY unusual.
Instead I got ready and went to work early.
I really really really need to meet up with Sheila of Ephemera sometime soon. We're going to go shopping so she can help me find some funky clothes. I can hardly wait. So tired of looking so blah lately!!
OH. And after I got to work we found out they found the cougar behind an apartment building and tranquilized it. So glad. I was worried they may harm it worse than that. Bye bye cougar.

Instead, there are boxy cut and cable knit sweaters.
Balloon style harem pants.
Baggie style mens shirts.
Floaty and flowy tops and skirts.
I need fitted, defined pieces otherwise I look and feel completely frumpy.
Any suggestions as to what new pieces out there may suit my body type (curvy, figure 8).
Wish I had the courage to just dress like Edith Prickly (above). My hero :)
