We start with what I wore to Weight Watchers:
Aside from "must look nice", my sole criteria for WW is that my clothes have to be light so that I don't add any clothing poundage to my weigh-in. No jeans! I also wore this out for lunch and walking around town a bit, doing some chores.
Dress (BCBG Max Azria, gift from Ruth), cami (Plum), obi (Smoking Lily, consignment), shoes (Tsubos), Audrey Hepburn Scrabble charm (holiday purchase), pearl studs (Aldo Accessories).
I swapped out the dress and shoes (and added a slip after last year's mishap in this dress!) for my niece Sydney's 1st birthday party:
This was perfect for sitting out in the sun!
I also wore my straw hat (with the front of the brim flipped up oh so stylishly), and carried my yellow bag:
My shoes have to be completely inappropriate for a 1-year-old's party, duh. My nieces Zoe and Hannah would expect no less!
A close-up of some of the accessories:
Dress (Hale Bob), cami (Plum), slip (thrifted), shoes (Le Chateau), assorted charms (here and there, the "S" was from Mom and Dad back in the early 90s), turquoise ring (Plum), snake ring (80s).
L and I drove home via the scenic route as opposed to the highway:
Good choice! We had the top down on the Miata....
I finished a book last week (I save the blurbs for the weekends) - it was "Life After God" by Douglas Coupland.
Stats: 361 pages of little bits of writing and the author's line drawings. Started July 6th, finished July 12th.
Blurb: I picked up a few more Douglas Coupland novels after reading "Girlfriend in a Coma" and liking it. This one was all right - I don't think I'm going to keep it. It didn't have a strong narrative, more like little snapshots of disaffection set in Vancouver in the early 90s. I blasted through this quickly. I think I have one or two more Couplands, but I'll wait a while and read other stuff in between.
Next up: "The Crazy Years: Reflections of a Science Fiction Original" by Spider Robinson (non-fiction).
