Daily outfit and style tip, wearing orange cargo jacket, grey dress and goldenrod tights
I’ve got sunshine

There some things about me that are absolute truths. They’ve been part of my DNA for as long as I can remember. One such items is that I love to eat. I eat well, I eat with appreciation for where my food comes from, grateful for those who played a part in availing this sustenance to me. I eat with mindfulness, aware of the life force and nutrition. And, I eat all the time.

Call it a twenty-four hour buffet, a snack-a-thon, whatever you will. It comes down to this. I dislike being hungry. I go from zero to cranky with a pounding headache, therefore, I eat.

Daily outfit and style tip, wearing goldenrod tights with grey dress
I’m dreaming of cheese











Imagine my delight as I sat at my desk unwrapping my Colby cheese stick this afternoon and looked down only to realize that my snack and my legs were the exact same color. What are the odds? I was half tempted to scan it but had obliterated most of it by the time of said discovery. It was the wiser of the choices to quietly finish eating given the logistics of scanning cheese. At work. And getting caught.

I really do have a lot of fun doing ordinary things. Especially as they relate to food and eating.

{ style tip: }

Neutral colors, such as this grey dress, can be revived with brighter color blocks in time for sunnier days. Goldenrod tights and a bright orange cargo jacket give it new life. The tights pick up on the faint swirl outlining the white flower, the hit of color is powerful and confident.

Do you have a particular neutral top, dress or skirt that could use a color lift? What color would you pair it with?

    I saw the top of the photo and thought, “Oh, Fabienne looks nice”…and then I saw the yellow tights – they’re amazing! I’ve been craving some since the Fendi AW11 show.

    I’ve been incommunicado lately, I know, but I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your lovely comments and then I got sucked into your blog again…! Its a joy to catch up. This outfit is like a big glowy beacon of happiness (Shoe lust!), and, did I mention already how much I like your new blog design? Very pretty, and very user friendly.

    Yay you!

    Yay orange. I just bought a tangerine orange cardigan recently, egged on by Ana, but I haven’t had the cojones to wear it. Maybe I’ll pair it with my grey Athleta dress.

    Ha, I’m having to refrain from some smart remark about snacking on your legs. I have a pair of pale yellow tights and really love them.
