First off, I am blown away by all of your fantastic responses I received on my last post. What wonderful answers you all shared! You guys made me feel a lot better about not forcing my blog on everyone I know. But you also made me feel okay about it if I did. Of course, wouldn’t you know after my post I get a call from my mother and sister who confess to me in low, quiet voices that “they know.” I went through my whole “oh that old thing?” spiel but they encouraged me and thought it was great. Whew. I’m glad that awkward bridge has been crossed. Let’s just hope my grandmother does not stumble upon this. I’m not sure if there are enough words to explain.
Second off, Jentine over at MyEdit featured me today on her “Blog Loving” post. And boy do I feel loved, thanks for all of your comments. Except I’m kind of having a Twin Peaks experience here. I remember stumbling on her blog when she started it last year and thinking how her style was unbelievably cute and how pretty she was! It feels a bit weird to be featured on her blog now. Is it alright if I feel like a celebrity for just a little bit here? I just snapped my fingers at my husband to bring me a chilled water and some M&M’s. But only the brown ones.
It’s getting chilly here again. Welcome to Texas. Literally it will 70 degrees one day and 25 the next. You could almost see the cold front blow in today. The sky was absolutely gorgeous with heavy, dark clouds. Makes me sleepy just thinking about it. I decided to pull out an old sweater dress I’ve had for years. I got it for our engagement pictures. It’s a cable knit dress with a huge cowl neck, which I love. But I thought that I’d throw on a scarf to add some dimension, it turns out it worked pretty well. I got a few side looks today at the office, but that usually means I’m doing something right.
Thanks again for all of the comments — you really helped me out.
By the way, the title of this post is not an allusion to my past, it’s just a song that’s in my head right now.

    I just found you yesterday through Jentine and started following immediately. I love your style and this outfit. I've always debated how to wear a very similar square scarf all bandit style but never thought of a cowl neck- that is shear brilliance. I also love the mix of brown and black.

  3. THis look is very chic and Parisian. It looks like you should be holding a bagel in one hand a long cigarette in one hand (for effect…not for smoking:)

    And I agree…whenever I get a "side eye" from a coworker when I wear something "different"…it makes me twist my hips a little harder and look over my shoulder and day a "hater wave" to them!
