tight buns

tight buns seem to only exist on my head.
but that doesn't keep me from trying.

saturday it was 95 degrees. i spray painted furniture and vacuumed out the car and sweated like a porcine proletarian all day. and then i took the kids swimming.
today i woke up and it was rainy and cold. and fantastic. about 70 degrees for the high. a nice change. i busted out a jacket that i have had for at least 5 years but only wear once every other year. and today was the day. i also found that because of my spray painting adventure, my feet still had a nice black to gray ombre effect even after two showers and swimming. so hosiery became a necessity today.

and this dress doesn't really have a definitive color scheme. is it silver? is the pattern gray? what about the brown dots? and the black ribbon at the neck? and purple dots too? and the jacket? i don't wear it because the proportions are so off for my body. it's not long enough and the dress is too rectangular and this is starting to sound like a math problem. so i thought, pair it with whatever. it doesn't matter anyway. let's just slap some pattern on pattern. it will all work as long as i work it. it's not rocket surgery.
dress- target
hosiery- target
jacket- dillards
shoes- tj maxx
attitude- your mom

Well it seems that this complicated "math" problem had a pretty darn pretty solution! I like how your outfit turned out. (And I can't believe you're toughing out tights in such hot weather!)

Hahaha, during those times, I just regard it as "neutral"... ;)

Love the tights and the red jacket! That jacket deserves more wear!!

You look very nice and the shoes rock. In fact the red shoes and that jacket look very good indeed
