And...day off today! Thursdays have become my Mental Health Walk Day as well as Grocery Day, so that's what I did! Routine is good.here 'cause I love - I read Cosmo back in my 20s), and it echoes what I've found over the years when I've been feeling blue or needed a lift: putting on make-up makes me feel better.
- Sweater - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last worn here with snakes and rainbow houndstooth in October 2019
- Skirt - LA Nights, thrifted; last seen here (2nd outfit) in August 2019 with my Gookey lace bomber for Ulti
- Shoes - Prepare Guide, Fluevog; last worn here (3rd outfit) for weekend brunch in September 2019
The sun is back, and it's brought a cool breeze with it. I enjoyed being out this morning for my walk and even lugging home my groceries. The seagull couple spotted me as soon as I went outside - the nesting lady on top alerted her fellow who came out to look at me.
|"Yes, it's her. She's spying on us!"|
In addition to doing my make-up today, I also got dressed in some "good clothes" which are just as comfy as my around-the-house clothes.
a little place to call my own has a great post today: 'Wear What Makes You Happy When You Can" (all links 'cause I love). It's an excellent reminder to have fun with your clothes and to dress up - life is short!
Today's dressy outfit (which will be worn until I start making dinner - I'm messy when I cook!) is in homage to L's beloved Miami Dolphins NFL football team, whose colours are orange and aqua. L has been missing sports badly these past few months, and the NFL Draft starts today. It's important to him, so I'm surprising him with my team-coloured outfit. Fins up!

This sweater is 100% merino wool, and it's heavenly soft and comfy to wear - it does have a couple of small spots on it, and a very light repair on the front hem. Those kinds of things don't really matter to me - but I will likely eventually rotate this sweater into my at home wear at some later date.
I love the swooshy skirt - it's a sheer layer over a black lining, which gives it good coverage and intensifies the colours in it.
Model pose, hee hee!
- Acrylic cuff - thrifted
- Glass bangle - thrifted
- Turquoise necklace - thrifted
- Green glass bead necklace - Mom's, 1970s?
- Brass/jade ring - Mom's, 1970s
- Turquoise ring - local
- Earrings - Mango's
I added this bracelet - it's sterling silver and loaded with semi-precious stones and pearls. The glass bangle rings on it like a spoon on a teacup - it's a pretty sound.
I'll be changing into my vintage house-dress for the evening.
Isn't it fabulous? It's by Mr. Robert and it's probably from the 70s. I bought it here a year ago (detail pictures there), in March 2019 for $18.95 and have worn it oodles of times. I feel very "Mrs. Roeper" in this!
I adore the bright orangey-red, the pockets and the massive pattern. It's worn the most in spring and fall.
And now, time for some reading in the sun.
|"On my way!"|
Vizzini immediately threw himself down and lolled around for a tummy rub.

My Purr Therapist calls! I hope you are having a good day - stay safe, my friends.
