LOVE this shirt!  I have such trouble finding white shirts to fit my chest, and when I saw this shirt from the Fall CAbi line, I had to get it.  It has a cotton collar and placket, but the rest is of soft jersey.  No need for safety pins to hold the bust together!

What a dreadful rainy day! Obviously it was drizzling during picture taking this morning. Then I left my umbrella in the car when my husband dropped me off. Then I went to transfer trains at Gallery Place Chinatown and there was a fire on the tracks at Union Station and no trains were coming. I had a 10am meeting, and it was now 9:15. Caught up with a coworker at the station, we decided to walk (to Dupont Circle). We got outside and the skies opened up. We had one umbrella between the two of us and it wasn't cutting it. So we tried to hail a cab… but so was everyone else. After about 15 minutes we finally got one. Got to work around 9:55.

Today I have meetings on and off until 2pm, then have to dash home (hope the Metro is back to normal by then), and then heading towards Baltimore to run a rehearsal for a wedding I am officiating tomorrow.

Tomorrow there is a children's consignment in town but I am sending my mom on my behalf because I need the morning to prepare for the day. Emerson and I have swim lessons, then E & my husband are going to a birthday party for our dear friends' son, and I am going to officiate the wedding.

Sunday we have another birthday party to attend, but I think I'll be sending my husband and Emerson without me so I can get myself in order. This is one thing I will be working on:


Yes, I have a CLOSET AGAIN! I just need to fill it up (this is all I have been able to accomplish this week).  I also hope to list some old clothes on eBay (will be sure to let you know when they are up!). What are your weekend plans?

    I wanted to break up the black and white, and felt a color would be too cliche. I’m glad you like it!

    I have never commented on a blog before so please excuse any etiquette faux pas.  I just wanted to thank you for your blog.  I’ll spare you all the detail but your blog has truly had a positive effect on my life.  Somehow, seeing you make the effort each day to look your best inspired me to do the same.  Funny how that one little effort seems to spread to so many other areas of life.  Just wanted to thank you and let you know just by you being you, you are sending out positive vibes into the world and touching lives.  Cheesy, yes, but also true.  A sincere thank you.

    Meant to say – I decided to take the plunge after seeing you in skirts so often.  I thought, “Hey – I like skirts and just because I don’t have the best looking knees … that’s no reason to avoid them altogether!”.

    My plan for the weekend included buying a suit for a meeting (in Europe) on Tuesday. I wound up going to Nordstrom & spending a TON, but … thanks to your blog I got a skirt & pants that work with the jacket.  I’d been avoiding skirts but decided to take the plunge.

    Wow, what a morning! I do feel grateful sometimes that my job is a twelve minute drive away, although I miss working in an exciting city! You look great in black-and-white.

    Love the blouse, by the way!  I bought a similar belt from Ann Taylor.  Plans for the weekend are cut short as I have to work tomorrow all day, but hopefully, hubby and I plan to go cycling on Sunday if it’s not too bad.  Enjoy yours.
