The Purse Snatcher returns

And the purse snatcher skirt again. If you can remember I was complaining I can hardly walk in this thing... I  walked slowly and sideways up the stairs at work again. Shimmy Shimmy.  Nice to have this blog and actually SEE what my outfits look like.  This one wont be showcased again thats for sure!! Me NOT LIKE.   I enjoyed the weekend alone without the man in the house and I even went to 2 parties!!  Just me and kitty alone another night. Oh boy maybe I'll have popcorn for dinner.

A girl can never have too much animal

I didn't have any pink leopard so had to buy this top when I saw it, plus I love tunics and boots.  SO. The man is away for 2 weeks and I have the house to myself for 2 whole weeks.  While some may find it lonely, I am really excited to have the space to myself!!! We have such a small house (900 sq. ft) theres not much room for alone time.  I travel alot with work so he gets the house to himself alot-- I rarely do. Not that I'll be doing anything much different, its just me and my furry best friend, its gonna be AWESOME!!

Have a super weekend awesome fashionistas!! I am off for my bike ride. xoxo Jodi

The one and only today.  I worked from home because my computer at work is fried. While getting it repaired I am using the desktop at home. BUT had to get dressed and into work at lunchtime for PIE DAY. Today was 3rd month, 14th day, or otherwise 3.14, also know as PI so we had PIE DAY. Not healthy but a way to get the others in the building we share to have a bit of a social. I took meat pies. And YES I  even had a piece of cherry pie. It only took about 20 minutes to feel completely gross afterwards. I knew it was going to happen but oh well. Sometimes in the name of socializing you have to bite the bullet!!

Long Black Sweater

I tried the long sweater with no belt today. I must admit I felt slightly awesome and a little frumpy at the same time.  For my body type I should wear belts. Hourglass figures, we curvy kinda gals need the definition so that the curves don't all just blend together and spell LARGE.  And at first I almost felt like I was wearing a cape the way it would flap behind me as I walked.  Thats it for today...awesome- frumpy-cape-wearing Jodi.

Until tomorrow. Have an awesome evening :)

Friday Wear

Darn, you cant see the argyle tights in this photo.. they are really cute.  Oh well.
So the other night I spent at least 2 hours unsubscribing from blogs that have basically gone dormant. I was subscribed to over a 1,000 blogs , many of which are fashion blogs and I sure noticed how many of them just drop off and end suddenly.  In terms of blogging, even though I  feel that my outfits are boring and people are likely not getting ideas from me, I continue to blog for the connections I've made on here.  I would really miss the friendships --I feel like I've been invited into a little piece of your world and I care about you and love your photos and sharing.  I feel like a bit of a fraud-- I am not a REAL fashionista- like, not REALLY fashionable, however, the fashion blog  is really just the entry point and a point of connection. Pretty cool actually.

Anyway, I am planning to do an overhaul of my closet this weekend and start planning some outfits in advance and also incorporating some of the fantastic wardrobe ideas I have collected from so many awesome bloggers out there.  Thanks to those of you who visit me here- some identify themselves and some just lurk.  Thats totally okay- its great to connect!!

Happy weekend everyone!! Jodi

HIppy Skirt

More photos using the point and shoot.  A quick trip to the nearby park and snap photos before anyone could see me.  This skirt is fun, very light weight and swirly and I love that it is highwaisted. Thats what a girl like me needs. Waist definition!!

Awesome spin workout this morning. Kale salad for lunch and about a million reports to write this afternoon. I also booked myself into a meditation retreat this weekend. I am very much looking forward to some peace and slow down time!!
Happy Thursday.

Sneaking Around in a Leopard Skirt

 Okay Okay. I broke out in a KINDA- smile... and I was sneaking around this morning too. I sneaked (is that a word :) the fiance's little point and shoot camera to use with the gorilla pod and came to work early this morning.  I went down to the caretakers unit (is vacant) and took this photo.  Either the point and shoot is really good or I completely suck with my big fancy camera because these photos didnt turn out too bad.  All I had to do was turn it on, set the timer and run into position. And let me just say-- I AM SICK OF THIS RAIN!! I think I managed to snap this during the only 10 minutes it wasn't raining all day.

thats my rant and musings for today.  Ciao xo Jodi

A Day in the LIfe

I worked on Saturday so took today off. What did my day look like?  6:00am-7:30 swim.  Come home. BIG CUPPA COFFEE. Check email. Wash 1 load of laundry.  Go for 2 hour ride on my road bike (to make up for the ride I missed Saturday).  Come home. Lunch: BIG mixed greens salad and piece of wild salmon.  Make cuppa tea.  Weed in garden for several hours.  Prepare chicken to roast. Ride dutch bike down to local neighbourhood grocery store for organic lemons and kale. Home.  Put on jazz. Finish preparing dinner.  The evening begins.

Hope you all had a super beginning to this week!! xoxo J

Visit to the clouds

Nice hike today up into the clouds and great open view of Saanich Peninsula. Great day with my man and now relaxing at home with a load of laundry in the machine, jazz playing and drinking a good cuppa rooibos tea. Happy Sunday!! J

Never too much Leopard

Happy Saturday Night.  The newest addition to my leopard scarf family.  I can't get enough leopard.  Well, I am not as bad as Edith Prickly, but secretly wish I were :)
