Where is FALL?? I’m ready. I’m always ready for cooler weather around this time of the year – I’ve had enough of the heat. We’re getting a bit of a break though actually, it’s not gotten above 90 degrees the last few days.
Speaking of fall, have you seen Only Child’s new arrivals? I’m still interested in a duster/vest to wear as a layer over my James Perse dresses and add pockets, but I also still wonder if I’d actually WEAR one. Haley’s is very good – and so is the Cardiff work jacket.
Oh, and who took the sizing survey at Elizabeth Suzann? Did you use your 10% off coupon yet?? I’m so tempted by the clyde jacket, but I’d also like to wait for the cold weather collection. But then the 10% off won’t be valid. Decisions, decisions…
And as I was browsing Garmentory (use my referral link for a $20 credit when you sign up for an account), I stumbled upon HAIR GOALS!!!!! I don’t want mine as long as hers, but I love the color, and I need to understand how to do a top knot like that…mine are not good – see above. Part of my new not giving AF attitude is trying to live a bit with my grays growing in. If I was still giving a fuck, I would have already been to the salon to get them covered a week ago. The problem is that I’m not quite ready to grow my grays in, so I’m going to have to get them covered at some point. And anyway, I’m not convinced the growing out will be pretty AT ALL.
Stylish “older” women are having a moment…although I’m not sure why we have to qualify them as “older” – can’t they just be stylish women? Anyway, I really find the most stylish women are of a certain age; I don’t find much very interesting amongst the “instagram-famous” bloggers/influencers. I can’t relate, and I truly find that most of them all look alike.
I am obsessed with Alyson’s outfit – it’s a People Tree X V&A dress, which incidentally Kathryn posted about in a comment here several weeks ago and THIS was the one dress I really liked. I still like the pattern better from afar though LOL.
If I’m most afraid of anything, it’s having a family member diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, or being diagnosed with it myself; my uncle died relatively young from Alzheimer’s, it progressed quickly, and was heartbreaking to see. I’m a nutrition buff anyway, but after listening to this episode of think earlier this week on my public radio station with Dr. Bredesen, the author of The End of Alzheimer’s, about his program to prevent and reverse cognitive decline, I am even more convinced than I already was that food is the best medicine. Going to devour the book this weekend…
