WIWW #26

pleated poppy

I'm experimenting with some basic primary colors lately.
I tend to feel more comfortable in neutrals, but every now and then I'll branch out a bit.

 Cardigan: Marshalls; Denim Dress & Red Belt: Thrifted; Shoes: Nine West Outlet

I found this denim dress at Goodwill... new with tags.  That's always fun.
It's slightly big, so I'm trying to slightly shrink it.
The belt is genuine snakeskin.  I hate snakes, but I like to say GEN-U-INE with a Texan accent.
Sorry if my legs are blinding you... I'm shielding my eyes.
That's enough random for this outfit.
Moving along...

 Cardigan: Target; Top: Thrifted; Scarf, Jeans, & Boots: Gifts

Patrick calls this my Greek outfit... all the white and blue, you know.
On Mother's Day Eve, I wore this to a restaurant called The Wild Donkey.
They serve Greek food and Mexican food.
I ate Mexican food in my Greek outfit while being 1/4 French.
Does this mean anything to you? 
Me either.

Sweater: Marshalls; Blouse: Kmart; Necklace: Lisa Leonard

I cut my hair.
Well, I didn't cut it, my nice stylist cut it and massaged my scalp.
To me, this is short and daring summer hair.
Nobody else even noticed.
I'm such a huge risk-taker, aren't I?

That is all... except my boys and I were talking about half birthdays yesterday, 
and I realized my half birthday is today.
Both my birthday and half birthday fell on a Wednesday...
That seems weird.
Does that always happen?

These are the kinds of things I think about when I am up past midnight.
I should have gone to bed at ten.

Aw, I hate when I cut my hair and nobody notices! I think it looks great - looks healthy and I love the layers.

You look so cute in yellow, that cardigan is great. I like all those outfits!

Hi Linda! Sorry I deleted that last comment. Justin was logged in under his google acct so it posted my comment under him. But I didn't want you to think some guy was posting weird comments so I deleted it!

I love the "Greek" outfit. So pretty. And I do the same thing when I cut my hair- I think it's all daring and then no one notices.
