Oh hi!~ Remember these denim leggings? I used to wear them like every other day? I still love them, but they have faded and a trip to the RIT dye bath at Tina’s house helped, but not enough. I am sad. I wear them less often now not because I no longer love them, but in an effort to prolong their little lives.
I’m finding some of my favorite Summer blouses a little hard to jacket, are you? I have tons of blouses, and they all looked great with my Stevie sweater, but that is far too thin for Fall, and I am really having to try on lots of jackets before I find the right jacket for the right blouse lately. But I am not buying all new blouses for Fall, not in Dallas. Right now it’s in the 50s in the morning and after the sun sets. Whoop-a-dee-do. Am I right? Not that big of a deal. (Dear Fall, try harder. XOXO, EJ)
I have a pair of wicked awesome Doc Martin ankle boots and I have been trying for a YEAR or so now to break them in and cannot. I think it might be a flaw in the shoes. The left shoes rubs the inside of my foot raw where the zipper hits, and the right rubs my heel. I tried them on again today and am conflicted as to what to do. They don’t seem to want to give in to being comfortable. But I’m not sure I feel right selling them to Buffalo Exchange, where they will trick some other girl into thinking she can tame them. Thoughts?
You can’t even see my feet anyway, because of all the leaves. My landlord is not big on raking them and to be honest I don’t so much care. I don’t really get leaves. I mean, you can use a blower, and then blow them into the street, where they will blow into your neighbor’s yard or even back into your own. You can bag them , in plastic bags which just does NOT make sense to me because then you have these leaves, which will be back to being dirt before you know it, but they are in plastic bags, which will be dirt….never. In SOME places I guess you can burn them, which is divine because, yay!, fire, and they smell amazing. But other than that, none of the common ways I’ve seen people deal with them makes sense. / tangent.
