Spring uniforms demand stripes & hats

I asked my ever-loving patient partner to snap some updated photos of my face so I could play around with a new blog design because I’m sure I’ll always be in transition with this blog design and because he’s such a sweetie, he made sure to get some full outfit photos as well. What a keeper. Also, sorry for the bland background. We were looking for something that would be easy to crop out.

Sweater & Tights: Target | Dress: Old Navy | Shoes: Marshalls | Hat: Sojourner

Have I mentioned how obsessed I am with this dress? Oh and these shoes. And the tights. I sweat those are the three most commonly worn items in my closet. Followed closely by the sweater. I’m so unimaginative. What to do? Add a hat, clearly. It’s the perfect temperature out for a hat now–dry and blue skies, but still chilly and brisk. Ideal hat weather.

So I know it looks like a boob shot, what with the whole image and all, but David assures me it was a necklace shot. He was showcasing my necklace with this picture. The necklace that was my birthday present from him 😉 I mean does the guy know me or what? I have a bad habit of losing all of my favorite necklaces so I’ll have to keep a close eye on this one and make sure it doesn’t go anywhere. I’m still mourning the disappearance of my typewriter necklace.

Birthday Trip to the Dog Park

I really hope you guys aren’t tired of hearing about the dog park yet, because it’s definitely becoming my favorite Happy Place. I love meeting all the cute little dogs and being that close to the Puget Sound and hanging out with my favorite doggies and my mom. Also, that being said, I don’t know if I’ve actually even talked about the dog park a lot, or if I’ve just thought about it a lot. So maybe you guys don’t even get the chance to be tired of the dog park. At least, not yet. Be ready for a photo-exclusive -heavy post. And a big thanks to mom who took all the photos that have me in them!

What to Wear: the Stripes Edition

what to wear

This is the Stripes Edition of What to Wear, and for everyone who read the early months of my old fashion blog, Moose in Chartreuse, my cohort Kels aka Stripes is really the expert in this sector of the fashion world.

Still, though, I had recently done a mini shopping trip. Somewhere David is rolling his eyes, saying “mini?” to himself. Anyway, I picked up a striped top and figured I’d wear it for this photo shoot. I tried it first with a couple of the different striped skirts I have, but in the end, none of it seemed to work.

I opted for Less is More. Kind of. No stripes other than the top, yes, but somehow it felt right to bust out my comic book socks.  Also I’m with Nicole on this–there really should be no rule about horizontal stripes and your weight. That’s just the fashion world getting its body snark on. Granted, I think there shouldn’t be like any rules when it comes to fashion, but that’s kind of a different topic.
