What I’m Wearing
* Army green wide-leg pants …Gap, I got these so long ago I can’t even remember …maybe 2005?. But they’re a great basic for when the wide-leg returns, which it has in a very 70’s way with a modern twist. After one wash, however, they were too short {and I don’t put them in the dryer}. Solution: take out the bottom hem. And in this case, leave it ragged.
* Cotton tank with tie I found at a thrift shop/brand new. I didn’t even try it on. In fact, after a return from the dry-cleaners, this is the first time I’ve ever worn it. Tag says: John Paul Richard.
* Vintage Sasson striped blazer ….seen last May, here with yet another “Never Say Never” …and the same shoes
* Vintage silk scarf I wore in my hair in my last outfit post
* Louis Vuitton Speedy
* Tom Ford “Yvette” sunglasses
* Pour La Victore “Fiona” platform

It was so ridiculously windy trying to snap these photos proved near impossible let alone get any details at all. I originally wore the scarf around my neck for warmth but after eyeing the first three shots, I realized in the photos, it looked like a neck brace. Hot. So I removed it and tied it on my bag.

This morning I opened my garage to get in my car and as usual, saw a little bitty critter. Many days it’s a handful of crickets, sometimes a row of ants, today, it was a little baby lizard. Just two days ago I wondered where all the lizards had gone and then this morning a little guy startled me. I drove out of the garage very carefully as not to smush him, successfully. I thought about him on and off all day. When I returned home, I pressed the button in my car and opened the garage and pulled in as I normally would. As I walked around the back of my car, I realized I killed the little baby lizard. His tail was cut off and still wriggling and his body was upside down and I swear his tongue was hanging out. I immediately started crying. And could not stop. When I ran to my husband sobbing, he thought something terrible had happened. I told him it did. I killed the lizard. I think he was relieved …and more upset to hear that I had also gotten my period today, two days early …which probably explained the tears that came rushing on and off for the rest of the night when I thought about taking that poor little lizard’s life. 🙁

    OMG!! 🙁 🙁 The baby lizard! 🙁 I would have run sobbing to my (future) hubs too! Aw!

    Last week, we were at the mall, and I was buying some food at the food court and there was this man, developmentally challenged AND in a wheelchair (poor guy!!) and he coudln’t speak very clearly, you the deal. Anyways, he’s trying to order some food, and the girl coudln’t understand him and I just started crying and couldn’t stop and my fiancé is trying to tell me it’s okay and he doesn’t know any different (life), but I cannot help being so upset. And as the woman keeps asking him to repeat himself, he’s getting frustrated and through my tears I tell the woman what he wants (a bottle of water) because I can understand him. We walked away after that and I just cried as we walked through the mall. CRIED. Like some sort of hormonal ball of emotion. So strange.

    Sorry about your period 🙁 btw. Last week I was reading all about your struggles with getting pregnant/not getting pregnant and I just really feel for you. You spend all this time trying NOT to get pregnant at first and then when you want to… well. You know. Anyways, sorry to bring it up.

    Awesome outfit, your style is impeccable. I am really sorry to read you killed the baby lizard…tears ran down my cheeks too after reading. I am super sensitive too, my days are close, but i am sensitive no matter what lol. Don’t feel so bad though, maybe i say it because i believe in afterlife 🙂

    Anyway..i love your blog, and your style, i really enjoy visiting your blog and reading it too. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    Aww I’m sorry that happened to you! At least you tried, right?

    When I was little I “made friends” with a baby bird that was in my yard. It walked out into the middle of the street and I tried to get it to come back to the grass, but then a car came and I watched it run him over. I am still scarred from that!

    Chin up! Maybe a block of chocolate will help?

    Either way, these photos are hot, and I thought the super windiness makes them look like stylised paparazzi shots. Very cool.

    Just looking through a home design inspiration site and saw an interior that reminded me a lot of the look (at least i think…) that you’re going for in your bedroom with the white and blue & bamboo.
