wearing today...

Dear Melissa,

(Or, should I say, bonjour, Melissa with my adorable fake french accent?) I've been taking to heart the excellent advice received and have been wearing scarves a lot more. And, earrings, and sometimes even bracelets and necklaces. I am making progress and felt obliged to report.

Here I am, ho hum, just a normal Monday morning, fresh from the market where I am proud to report that I bought a few different varieties of fromage which I will probably stress eat by myself in the afternoons whilst the children do their homework, practice instruments, beg for play-dates, and fight.

Here are my shoes. They are my favorites (can you tell?), my Ugg clogs. I like that they have a little bit of a heel because I am short. I mean, petite. Yet they are comfy. I am still working on finding those perfect ballet flats that don't make my petite legs look stubby. (Does anyone else have that problem?)

Here is my post-market look, which means, without the sweater (I get cold there). Please pardon the skee-wompus photographs, they were taken by a four year old. Who encouraged me to model in my "fake book reading pose" for most of the pictures. I was very interested in that book with and without the sweater, can you tell?

Really you should go look at these great hair tutorials on Cup of Jo, they are fantastic. I love the three mini buns one the very most. Oh, but the messy bun one is great too.

Kisses,
Lynne

You always give me a great out loud laugh with your fashion posts Lynne. You are looking very French I must say, especially with that philosophical book-intent gaze. And I'm sure you didn't get any comments that you look Pentacostal or Amish, or whatever those snide comments were. Tell the four year old she is quite the photographer too.

lynne said...

merci for all the compliments! and i will definitely pass along the compliments to the four year old. not that she lacks confidence! :)

YOU are darling. And I love the outfit! I used cup of jo's 3 bun tutorial the day I wore my new striped dress, and had my 12 yr. old take pictures. (We're on the same page...but wow! your 4-yr. old is quite the prodigy!) And I've been wearing scarves too...because an old tshirt and jeans just gets boring. love your clogs! And the shirt-dress with the belt. I'm inspired! hmmmn...what should I wear today? :)

Tricia said...

oh, and can you come over and arrange my books? LOVE the new dining room. Especially the light fixture. And the way you style everything...gorgeous!!! Are the wood floors new? beeeautiful!

Melissa said...

lol I am petite too and I have a horrible time finding clothes and shoes. Those clogs look exactly like my favorite pair. I wore them until the insides came apart.
Loving your blog. Its cool that one of you is from Cali, where I live, and the other is from France, where I have always dreamed of living. And one of you is named Melissa. Thats cool too :)

You're "I'm finding this book utterly fascinating and it's certainly making some pertinent points" face is hilarious. How cute that your 4 year old took this. Bet they felt proud when you posted the shots.
