Yesterday my friend Alison remarked that I looked as though I had lost weight. I said if I had, it was due to stress and not having time to eat. I didn't realize I had lost weight until I put on this skirt. The last time I wore it, it was tight and I had to wear it higher on my torso to get it to fit properly. Today, it zipped up without issue. I can't wait until life slows down enough that I can lose weight from eating healthy foods and exercising instead of living off coffee and take-out!

In Emerson fashion news, it's hard to see but there's a floral print top under that hoodie, she told me that it matched the floral pants perfectly – our little pattern mixer!  She also told Daddy yesterday that she didn't want a heaircut so we're just going to trim her bangs and grow out the rest a bit.  Emerson's hair has been short because she likes it, asks for it, but also because she won't let us brush it or put hair accessories in it.  However lately she likes having her hair brushed and combed and asked to have ponytails like a character she saw in one of her books.

Tomorrow we're shooting another wedding, from the look of things it will be a very relaxed, family-centered and fun affair. Luckily nothing is planned Sunday, I hope to fit in a nap, a trip to the farmers market for some fresh produce, and to clean up my bedroom, which looks as though a bomb exploded in there! What are your weekend plans?

    I love seeing Emerson’s outfits! I have a 3 year old and a 2 year old (as well as a 2 month old) and they are both very opinionated about what they wear. It’s wonderful to see that you encourage her to dress in a way that makes her happy. 🙂

    What a great skirt – tying the shirt makes all the difference. Nicely done.

    I love your accessible style. This skirt is a terrific length for you. I will be trying this look at work.

    What a classy outfit — you look gorgeous in it! What lipcolor are you wearing?

      I took Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait and then topped it with Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Romance 🙂 Thank you!

    You look great! Sassy and pulled together.

    I hope your dog is doing okay, I know how hard it is to lose an elderly pet.

      Thank you. Alife is doing better though I wonder if it’s the beginning of the end. Not to say I want him to die, but I just don’t think he’s very happy right now. There’s nothing medically wrong with him, but he seems miserable and uncomfortable and I wish there was something I could do to make his last days/weeks/months more comfortable.

    Love your outfit, and always do! One question – how and why do you tie your shirts the way you do? I would have tucked it in, and wouldn’t have thought to do a little tie like that. I think it’s darling on you, I don’t know if I could do it though!

      When I tuck it in it ends up looking very uniform-like. Tying it nips the waist a bit more and makes it look in my opinion a bit more fun. 🙂

    I love this outfit! it’s so polished and chic, you look great!

    Very chic – you even made the oxford look cute and modern, instead of like a refugee from the 80s!
