Pajama Patterns and Horrible Booties

Another day, another day closer to a long weekend, another day of feeling less sick. I've been sick for over a week (I'm in the tail end of Week Two of Sickitude) and I feel I've been very restrained about whining about it, aside from yesterday's post. Considering I had to go to the periodontist, I feel justified.
 No whining today, though! The weekend is in sight - this calls for pajamas. Well, my version of 'em.


  • Jacket - H&M, consignment; purchased here for $22.00
  • Sleeveless sweater - Gap, thrifted; last worn here in July with a long sweater
  • Pants - Tara Jarmon, consignment; last seen here (2nd outfit) in April during Ally's visit
  • Shoes - Effortless Vivian, Fluevog; last worn here in June with pinks (and a salamander)


The jacket has a very pajama-y shape to it. I mostly wore it with the sleeves shoved up, all casual-like.
 Not including my hand stuffed inelegantly into the very small pocket. It was lovely to wear - I had many fans of this outfit today.

I loved the pattern mix of my polka dot pants with it.
 They're practically a neutral!

Done up - a very pajama shape.
 I wore it like this when I was walking to work.

The stuff:
 Throwing a whole 'nother colour into the mix with baby blue. The white helps it all hang together. They're the shoes of harmony.

Minimal bling:
 When you have this much colour and pattern, you don't need a lot of accessories.


  • Earrings - vintage 60s?, vintage fair


On my lunch break today, I browsed in the Cobbler shoe store, a shop I've frequented since the mid-80s when I was in high school. I may have found something...
 I loved these black leather shoe-booties (shooties?). They are butter soft!

I love all the semi-gladitorial gewgaws, and the mesh insert.
 A rockin' lug sole is good for gripping, and the wedge heel doesn't even feel like a heel at all. I can walk to and from town in these!

They're by Sorel, famous maker of winter boots. I'm picturing tights and a short skirt with these.
And only $69! What a deal! L took one look at them and said, "Yup, those are horrible booties." The man has no taste, ha ha!

I will be back on Monday with my Bigass Long Weekend Wrap-up! Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
